Hudson Terrace Video and Single Premier Event
What do you get when you cross Bruno Mars with Cabaret style? The answer lies in the music video and single release party that occurred this past Tuesday night, July 31st, at Manhattan lively nightlife spot Hudson Terrace. Singer Jullian James debuted his first single "My Sweet Radio" along with the accompanying music video.
Over 100 guests were on hand to view the video premiere, along with a special live performance by James and his band. Notable guests included Miss NY Amber Collins, Music Manager Bernadette Brennan, and Sean Gill of The Passengerz. The video and song simultaneously hit YouTube, iTunes, and Amazon. His album entitled "From My Integrated Soul", debuts later this year.

The evening began with an open bar and one of the best appetizer-to-person ratio I have ever seen. That's not to say the place was empty, but rather Hudson Terrace knew how to keep the crowd happy. Countless waiters and waitresses weaved in and out of the crowd with various signature finger foods that were each more fantastic than the next. Pork sliders, glazed sesame chicken, and lobster bites were just some of the stand out dishes being offered. The bar was also quite accessible with surprisingly friendly bartenders for an open bar atmosphere. One tender, who referred to himself as "Chopper," was particularly well-crafted as I watched him meticulously create my friend a Martini. Later in the night the music video was debuted on a projector, followed by a special performance by James, wearing what I can only describe as a disco ball turned into a sport jacket, sang the majority of his album with the same soul and passion that his hit single radiates.
