I am working here in early February with The Bakersfield Symphony. This hall seats about 2,500 people. The way the seating is set up, even the cheap seats are still pretty close to the action without obstructions to your view. The seating, although not new, is pretty comfortable with leg room for a big guy like me. If you are... More

Sound system not good quality, speakers rattle can't understand. Stairs are way to steep. If climbing is hard do for you, don't bother.

Rabobank has the best events in town. They have this huge hall where my company gave us a company Christmas dinner. They upgraded their fountain which it gives rabobank that relaxing theme when your outside.

We have been to several concerts and plays here and the reviews are mixed. If you are there to see an "A" entertainer, it is usually great but the sound system in house is not very good. The live productions have all been very good, again, most travel with their own sound systems
