The Dukes' Concert Series is in honor of Fred and Beverly Dukes, Bakersfield philanthropists who gave generosly to students at CSUB and Bakersfield College through scholarships. They also served their churches, College Heights Congregational and First Congregational in multiple varied ways. Their church endowment included the funding of this concert series which consists of five musical events every year to be enjoyed without charge to music lovers in the Bakersfield Community. We have been enriched by their generosity, and we will remember them with gratitude.

Doug Davis and Dr. D’s Debris Concert

On Sunday, Feb. 24 at 4 p.m., retired CSUB music professor Doug Davis will be bringing his jazz friends to our sanctuary for a Sunday afternoon concert.   Doug Davis and Dr. D's Debris are well-known in our community and have been important figures involved in the spring jazz festival at CSUB.

Dr. D's friends include Davis (piano), Michael L. Raney (alto sax), Paul Perez (tenor sax), Ken Bausano (trumpet), Glen Fong (bass) and Ernie Cervantes (drums).  We can expect to be thoroughly amazed at these seasoned musicians who have performed for our series several times in past years.  We are so lucky to have them!
