What to Expect

This means, creating more than "just music", but a spectacle/an event with a palpable excitement to it. As the frontman/vocalist of the show, Dan provides a fun, light, and comedic environment to suit your needs.
Additionally, his relationship with his players/team, is very amicable, and they play off each other, creating a unique vibe for each performance. We provide a professional & clean look to any black tie event, show, wedding, as well as a casual cocktail hour.
Dan Julien is a Canadian jazz singer, actor, and overall musical entertainer hailing from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He currently resides in Toronto, ON where he works with a number of musicians in the local scene, including a quintet he plays with.
