Five Bakersfield TV, Movie and Music Fun Facts
In honor of our expansion into Bakersfield, here are five fun facts about Bakersfield that are related to TV, music or movies.
- Bakersfield is the county seat of Kern County. It’s the 3rd highest oil-producing county in the United States. Vinyl is made out of synthetic polymers which are made out of hydrocarbons, i.e. petroleum. Therefore, if you’re using a high-fidelity home audio and surround sound system to listen to your vintage vinyl records, you might be enjoying a little tiny piece of Bakersfield on your turntable.
- The Bakersfield Sound is a county music style that originated in Bakersfield in the mid-1950s. You can use your home automation system to watch a documentary about it from Amazon Prime Video. The new sound was a reaction to the (for those days) slick sounds coming out of Nashville. Buck Owens was one of the originators. Merle Haggard was probably one of the most commercially successful artists to bring the sound to the mainstream. If you like Dwight Yoakum, you like the Bakersfield Sound!
- The Bakersfield Jazz Festival has been one of the biggest, most prestigious jazz festivals on the west coast for more than 30 years. They debuted their event with the Yellow Jackets and have been featuring more Grammy-award winners ever since.
- The Bakersfield Community Theater is the oldest continually operating community theater in California. Plus it’s the second oldest amateur community theater west of the Mississippi.
- Eight Bakersfield restaurants have been featured on the hit Food Network TV show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.” Sounds like we’ll be traveling to Flavor Town when we install custom home theaters.
We hope you’ve gained as much appreciation for the rich musical, theatrical and television history and resources of Bakersfield as we have.
