Live At Lee’s Palace – One Year of Desert Star

Desert Star was released one year ago today. It’s been a great year for the band. To commemorate the occasion here’s a collection of songs recorded at our album release party at Lee’s Palace on October 7th, 2016. We played with two great bands: Ann Vriend and Freeman Dre & The Kitchen Party. The recording was recorded, mixed and mastered by Ross Citrullo.

Julian Taylor Band - SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival


‘Live Music Is Better!’ – JT has been shouting this from the stage at every show on the summer tour so far, and every audience has enthusiastically agreed. Here I’ll offer a quick re-cap of our shows so far.

June 18: Markham Village Music Festival: Taking Flight & Volume Wars

The first show of our summer tour was in Markham, Ontario. We’d originally planned to perform as a smaller configuration but figured what the heck – it’s local, and what’s more fun than the full 8 piece band? Nothing, that’s what. We all managed to squeeze our cars in to the lot directly behind the stage, and we played as the sun set. The stage was small, but we’ve definitely played on smaller. There was another stage set-up no more than 100ft away with a band going full tilt. We decided to save ‘Carry Me Home’ until after they were done – we soldiered through but it was a little weird having that much volume so close!
