A concert is a live performance, usually of music, before an
audience. The music may be performed by a single musician, sometimes then
called a recital, or by a musical ensemble, such as an orchestra, a choir, or a
musical band. Informal names for a concert include "show" and
"gig". Concerts are held in a wide variety of settings or venues,
including pubs, nightclubs, houses, barns, dedicated concert halls,
entertainment centers, large multipurpose buildings, and even sports stadiums.
A concert held in a very large venue is sometimes called an arena concert.
Regardless of the venue, musicians usually perform on a stage. Before the
dominance of recorded music, concerts would be the only opportunity one would
generally have to hear musicians play.
While the principal reason for a concert is the opportunity
for the musicians to perform in front of an audience, even the most purely
artistic of endeavors will see gains. Concerts provide the musicianís exposure
to the public. An attendee will probably see the musicians perform again if the
concert was worthwhile. Recording artists usually go on tours to promote record
sales and introduce their fans to new musical compositions. Some musicians and
musical groups are known for consistently touring and holding concerts, others
contains Downloads, Original Music, Live Music, Sample Music, MP3 music. Be

Rock music (or rock) is a loosely-defined genre of popular
music that developed during and after the 1960s. It has its roots in 1940s and
1950s rock and roll and rockabilly, which evolved from blues, country music and
other influences. In turn, rock music drew on many other musical influences,
including folk music, jazz, and classical music.
The sound of rock often revolves around the electric guitar or acoustic guitar, and it uses a strong back beat laid down by a rhythm section of electric bass guitar, drums, and keyboard instruments such as organ, piano, or, since the 1970s, digital synthesizers. Along with the guitar or keyboards, saxophone and blues-style harmonica are sometimes used as soloing instruments. In its "purest form", it "has three chords, a strong, insistent back beat, and a catchy melody."
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, rock music developed different subgenres. When it was blended with folk music it created folk rock, with blues to create blues-rock and with jazz, to create jazz-rock fusion. In the 1970s, rock incorporated influences from soul, funk, and Latin music. Also in the 1970s, rock developed a number of subgenres, such as soft rock, glam rock, heavy metal, hard rock, progressive rock, and punk rock. Rock subgenres that emerged in the 1980s included New Wave, hardcore punk and alternative rock. In the 1990s, rock subgenres included grunge, Britpop, indie rock, and nu metal.
A group of musicians specializing in rock music is called a rock band or rock group. Many rock groups consist of an electric guitarist, lead singer, bass guitarist, and a drummer, forming a quartet. Some groups omit one or more of these roles and/or utilize a lead singer who plays an instrument while singing, sometimes forming a trio or duo; others include additional musicians such as one or two rhythm guitarists and/or a keyboardist. More rarely, groups also utilize stringed instruments such as violins or cellos, or horn sections of saxophones, trumpets or trombones.
