The Nexties is an award show that honors Santa Cruz residents who create, build, and inspire. The NEXTie awards are given to Santa Cruz’s up and coming entrepreneurs working in art, entertainment, agriculture, tourism and technology. The community votes on who has made a difference in their life. This year’s NEXTie awards, at the Rio Theatre, was part big time, part community, part intimate and all Santa Cruz. The local spirit is alive, well and thriving. The audience was treated to performances by special music guests James Durbin, Ian Bell, The band In The Middle which was Sarah Rose with some of the members of Urban Theory. The awardees were introduced to the stage by past recipients of a NEXTie award. Here’s who the community voted for this year and who introduced them.
