It’s the most of any nomination, a fact that thrills Gardner, who has been with Anthology since its opening in June, 2007.

“I’d like to thank our YouTube channel, which is what made us eligible,” Gardner grinned after receiving word about his great honor.

Gardner and Anthology received two nominations in the Best Audio category and two in the category Director Program: Live or Live to Tape.

In Best Audio, Gardner was nominated for his Composite work and shared a nomination with John McCourt for his work on a live concert featuring Hiroshima, a highly-acclaimed jazz fusion band.

In the Director Program: Live or Live to Tape, Gardner was nominated for his Composite work and for his work on “Hiroshima Live.”

These nominations bring up Gardner’s total to eight. He’s won twice and hopes to add to that total when the awards are handed out on June 18 at La Costa Resort.

Six of those nominations have come for his work at Anthology, a fact that thrills Gardner for a very special reason.

“I did some research last year and I believe we are the first club ever to be nominated for an Emmy,” Gardner said. “It really establishes Anthology as the finest video producing organization out there in the areas of audio and live directing.”

Anthology co-owner Marsha Berkson says Gardner’s work has been instrumental in making the club California’s premier music destination and believes the nominations are proof of their success.

“We set out to create the finest music and dining club in California and these nominations demonstrate that the best sound and video technicians in the broadcast industry recognize
and appreciate what we’re doing,” Berkson said. “That’s a great honor that we humbly appreciate.”
