Last night the 2012 Lumie awards of the Tucson Pima Arts Council were presented at El Casino Ballroom.
I was there taping one of the nominees for the emerging arts award – Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta.
The footage will be combined with audio engineer Jim Blackwood’s recording of the energetic set for a future video of the group. And snippets will also appear in my documentary “The Heart and Soul of Tucson: El Casino Ballroom.”
A short preview of the film was also shown at last night’s Lumie Awards before a packed house.
