STAGE TUBE: Watch New Music Video for Julian Velard's 'No One's Getting Married Tonight'
On September 16, native New Yorker Julian Velard will release "No One's Getting Married Tonight," the next single off his New York City concept album aptly titled If You Don't Like It, You Can Leave. Check out the just-released music video below!
Shot by SERINO/COYNE's Jim Glaub surreptitiously at Velard's wedding in August (without any of the guest's knowledge including the Bride!), the music video for the single features a who's who of Music and Broadway Talent drunkenly lip synching the song. Cameos include Jonah Smith (Semi-Finalist on America's Got Talent Season 9), Ophira Eisenberg (Host of NPR'S Ask Me Another), Singer-songwriters Ari Hest & Ryan Montbleau, Lead singer of The Damnwells and multi platinum songwriter Alex Dezen, Alison Siedner (Cellist for Broadway's Kinky Boots and Addams Family),Tara Siesener (Tracy in Las Vegas/Royal Caribbean production of Hairspray), Vocalist Chrissi Poland (from Scissors Sisters and Spiegelworld in Las Vegas) and many more. Bride Rachel Kopf is also a Broadway alumni, having toured 3 years as Ellen in the North American Tour of Miss Saigon.
No One's Getting Married tonight is Velard's ode to the uncertainty of life in New York as an artistic thirty-something. His NYC concept album released this past June is Velard's most sincere release to date, telling stories of excitement and heartbreak across the five boroughs; mimicking the familiar feeling of bonding with a stranger over your love/hate relationship with the city.
Julian was born and raised in NYC and If You Don't Like It, You Can Leave is his paean to New York living. The album's concept is beautifully illustrated by the cover art, featuring 1950's Broadway star Gwen Verdon who starred in Damn Yankees, married Bob Fosse, and appeared in Woody Allen's film Alice earning her undeniable New York cred. The photograph of Verdon was shot for the historic LOOK Magazine and taken at the top of the iconic Look building located in the heart of Midtown.
Julian's versatility has earned him regular appearances on NPR, serving as the musical director for the new pilot Scott Simon's Wonderful Town and guesting on the musical trivia show Ask Me Another with Ophira Eisenberg.
