The Untold Sound of Bakersfield
Much has been written about Bakersfield's deep country music roots, but to our knowledge the rich story of Bakersfield's "other" music scene hasn't been told until now.
Randy' Fendrick's new book "The Other Music of Bakersfield" unearths the city's musical history from the 1880s to early 2000s. From the orchestras that played in the city's silent movie theaters and lively vaudeville houses to the growth of local jazz. Turn-of-the-century brass bands, the birth of our symphony, live music theater, civic light opera. and more. It is all here in a wonderfully produced hardbound edition.
