Joe Lewis, founder of the Joe Lewis Company, and R.A. Clark, founder and executive producer of Lion’s Heart Entertainment announced the formation of their live event and broadcast firm, Lewis & Clark. The firm’s first project will be the 2022 MusicCares Person of the Year Gala honoring Joni Mitchell. Joe Lewis Company and Lion’s Heart Entertainment will also continue as separate entities.
The duo has been involved in live television and fan experiences for more than 30 years. They specialize in live music and award shows, opening ceremonies, extravaganzas and sports events, including the Academy Awards Pre-Show, the Grammys, the Academy of Country Music Awards, the Billboard Music Awards, the CMT Awards; and events around the NFL’s Super Bowl, Draft, Kick-Off and Pro Bowl, and the NBA All-Star Game.
“RAC and I have a successful track record of working alongside each other on some of Hollywood’s biggest events,” says Lewis. “Our alliance is the perfect marriage on several levels, and joining forces with him allows us to deliver an unparalleled live event broadcast experience for our clients.”
“After working with Joe on the Academy Awards red carpet, I knew that if we came together, our clients would get the best of both worlds: live/experiential event experience with live music event broadcast expertise,” says Clark. “I’m so honored to come together with Joe and kick off this new venture for this year’s MusicCares person of the year honoring Joni Mitchell. I’m an unabashed fan and can’t wait to help create a memorable night for Joni and MusicCares.”
Lewis & Clark services will include live event & television production, production management, complete creative services, in-house scenic fabrication and printing capabilities, and extensive logistics services.
