My View: Remembering Mr. Sinatra – Julie Budd

My View: Remembering Mr. Sinatra – Julie Budd

When she was a teenager Julie Budd was introduced to audiences by the likes of Ed Sullivan, Merv Griffin, Johnny Carson, Carol Burnett, Danny Thomas, and Liberace, to name just a few.  Julianne Boyd, artistic director of Barrington Stage Company did the honors on the first night of Julie Budd’s engagement at Mr. Finn’s Cabaret.  The casual summer audience realized this would be a different night as Julie’s band under the direction of renowned arranger/producer/pianist Herb Bernstein entered Mr. Finn’s attired in tuxedos and Julie looking every bit the glamorous singer she is was wearing a gown.   Julie Budd has enjoyed a legendary career.  Today Julie continues to perform her concerts and one-woman shows, nationally and internationally while adding some of the most prestigious stages to her roster: Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, London Palladium, Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center and many of the finest Las Vegas Showrooms.

In addition, JULIE BUDD has had the extraordinary distinction of touring with the late/great MARVIN HAMLISCH, who personally invited her to be his Guest Artist for seven years. And if that’s not enough, Julie is a favorite to many of the symphony orchestras throughout the country including: Baltimore Symphony, National Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Austin Symphony, Alabama Symphony, Philadelphia Symphony, Dallas Symphony & Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.

Mr. Finn’s audience got to hear Julie reminisce about her teenage years of performing with Frank Sinatra, and of course a full dose of her sumptuous voice singing the iconic Sinatra song list.
