This is an old film reel from a Bakersfield parade in the early 50s. There is a 1954 Pontiac featured in the video, so we’re guess its 1954. Also featured is the Bakersfield Sound in their early 20s. Can you name all the performers in the video?
“…a damn fine piece of filmmaking. Treasure troves of rare footage and recordings are deployed to tell the exuberant Mize’s sometimes tragic story and give us a comprehensive history of the music scene that challenged Nashville’s dull dominance in the 1950s, ‘60s and beyond.”
