Julie Anne is one of a kind!
You will be entranced by Julie Anne's own personal style that sets her aside from all others. Influenced by the most distinguished jazz vocalists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Julie London and Peggy Lee, Julie Anne pays tribute to them by keeping these classic jazz standards alive.
The quality of her voice, her unique phrasing and interpretations make Julie Anne one of the top jazz performers around.
You may have seen Julie Anne at many Tucson Jazz Society events such as the Diva’s of Jazz or Tribute to Women in Jazz concerts, “Tucson Swings!” dances and concerts, the piano bar at McMahon’s Steak House, Ventana Canyon, Kingfisher, Blue Fin, Westward Look, The Gas Light Theatre, Starr Pass resort, Saddlebrooke, Old Pueblo Grill or any number of other events, conventions or weddings....
