Julie Crystel (aka Julie Lester) and Doug Onstad, two Sonoma County musicians, have joined forces to create Brulée. Tom Shader, Kent Hayden, or Don Watanabe often join them on bass. Synergizing a wide range of musical genres with Julie on vocals and Doug on piano, guitar and vocals, this ensemble performs “Jazz with a Twist.” Standards, blues, original compositions, classic jazz vocals and vocalese with a bit of pop and folk are the building blocks of a repertoire built on a foundation of musicianship and taste unique on the Sonoma County stage.
Brulée also performs as a larger group as needed for special occasions - adding drums, violin, saxophone and more.
