Julie Bonk is a native of Michigan and studied piano and music from the age of four. Julie has been winning piano competitions since childhood.

Julie picked up her love for Jazz while attending Interlochen Academy of the Arts. She furthered her Jazz studies at The University of North Texas and received her Bachelors of Arts Degree in Jazz Studies and performed for the one o'clock Jazz Band.

Julie has always been in high demand and has performed with such notables as Bob Hope, Fred Raulston, Dave Sporney, John Lindenau, Buggs Henderson, The Supremes, The Drifters, The Platters, Sherm Mitchell, Z.Z.

Julie's performance expertise remains in high demand among Dallas' high society for private parties and weddings, and she fills in a full schedule with occasional appearances at local clubs and restaurants.
