There are two bands named Julliet:
1.Julliet was formed in 1985 by lead guitarist Jimmy DeLisi and bassist Ty Westerhoff. They had been through their share of lead vocalists before finally adding Kenny McGee to the lineup. Jimmy and Ty knew about Kenny but he was with another band. They knew McGee was a perfect match. One night at a show, their singer didn't show up so they quickly sought after Kenny for the gig. Not knowing the words, Jimmy and Ty fed the lyrics in his ears during the show. After adding Greg Pecka on drums, the rest would soon be history.
Julliet performed their unique brand of melodic hard rock to capacity crowds throughout the southern United States. Relocating to the rock capital of L.A. from Florida in early 1988, the band gained a strong and loyal following, selling out show after show, earning the reputation as a powerful live band. One year to the day after they left the sunshine state, Julliet signed their deal with Enigma Records.
At the time of relocating to LA, the band had been working closely with Kevin Dubrow of Quiet Riot. Kevin became interested in working with the group and produced the first Julliet album entitled "Passion". Kevin enlisted the talent of drummer Frankie Banali to play drums on the album as well. The Passion album contained 10 very powerful songs and each individual talent is clearly displayed. However, the album was shelved and not released for years later.
Their self-titled debut release took form when the band hooked up with producer Frankie Sullivan (Survivor guitarist/producer). Sullivan had the right idea going when he incorporated the bluesy McGee vocals on to tape. McGee identifies his roots as beginning with Elvis Presley as well as legendaries such as Kiss, Queen, Sweet and Aerosmith. Backed by the strong harmony vocals of De Lisi and Westerhoff and the powerful Pecka backbeat, all the pieces were in place.
The self-titled album went on to sell over 300,000 copies. With hits like "No More Tears" and "Revvin' Me Up" among others, Julliet received nationwide notariety as one of Enigma's breakthrough acts for 1991.
Around that time, the music scene began to take a sharp turn. With the invent of the grunge scene, bands labeled as "hair or glam" bands were forced out of the spotlight as the Seattle scene began to explose. In addition, record labels were not eager to sign or work with the 80s bands we all knew and loved. That left bands like Julliet, coming in on the back half of the glam era, out to dry. Even tough they enjoyed much success and high reviews with their self-titled album, the band eventually split. Kenny moved back to Tampa while Jimmy and Ty kept the Julliet name alive in LA.
Now the band is back and more powerful then ever. Julliet is Kenny McGee, Jimmy DeLisi, Shaun Fetzer, JJ Johnson, and Danny Elliott. Julliet still reaches fans all over the world and will continue to do so. Stay in touch with the boys….theres much more to come!! Check out Julliet live in a city near you!
