So what is the Bakersfield Music Hall of Fame? It is an establishment that has several functions. The building itself is around 100 years old. It’s beautiful 12-inch thick solid concrete walls and the 4-foot high raised concrete loading dock that bisects the building, suggests that it was used as a packing shed or a freight transportation company in a past life. The American Sound Group put the existing architectural features of the building to good use. The concrete walls will make a great sound barrier for the two beautiful and professional recording studios. The raised loading dock will make for a more exciting and interesting concert experience in the new 250 seats Performing Arts Theatre, just completed. The theatre boasts comfortable leather type stadium seating. Private Entry Sponsor Boxes and a Raised Performance Stage with state of the art sound, lighting and high definition visual monitors. The very high Tongue and Groove Ceiling at the Entrance along with the old hand made steel and wooden trusses can be seen along with the old warehouse lights that cast a gentle illumination and create a beautiful backdrop for the Charter Member Recognition Hall. Just beyond the entryway is a vintage style Lower Lobby with a Concession Bar for snacks serving fun foods. That area also includes a gift shop where you can purchase you favorite memorabilia or maybe a local artist or band CD. In addition to the Lower Lobby, we have an Upper Lobby with a serving counter and social area so you can hang out with your friends and perhaps enjoy a soft drink or glass of wine while waiting for your show to begin. For catered events such as weddings, anniversaries and business meetings there is a wonderful food prep kitchen just beyond the Upper Lobby, and a beautiful Conference Room that seats 12 comfortably. A receptionist is available at the entrance located on the east side of the building where eight professional offices have been leased out to entertainment businesses. At this time a Radio Station, Podcast and Media, Modeling & Talent, and Staff Offices.
