Evolution of the Delta blues can be seen by identifying specific elements of the Delta Blues in music genres that came after it. Rock ‘n’ Roll for example, is one of the modern genres that still exemplify elements of the Delta Blues. Many rock legends such as the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and the Beatles were highly inspired by the Delta blues. Regan Wardensky writes, “The goal of both genres is to create music with raw emotion.” (Wardensky, 2012) .
I have chosen “ Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars and “ Rock Around The Clock” by Bill Haley as this assessment ‘s topic. Basic information of two songs will be mentioned first, then similarities, differences and connections will be discussed afterwards.
While his peers fill their weekend plans with friends or by studying for algebra, Junior, Richard Conie, takes his time to perform locally. Conie and a couple of his friends came together with their talents, to form a band known as “North of Lane”. They have gone from practicing in garages, to opening at the LC Pavilion. Stage fright can be terrifying for the typical teenager, but this is one thing not to scare Richard Conie.
But this band broke up with it all started at a concert they were singing and playing their music until Midway through the set, Hendrix declared to the audience that this would be “the last gig we’ll ever play together” after this the audience freaked out and police arrived to try and stop the panic with gas. 5 months later Redding said in an interview with Rolling Stone. "I went up to Jimi that night, said goodbye, and caught the next plane back to London. I don 't think Jimi believed I 'd do it. Later, he phoned and asked me to come back, but I said stuff it” and this was the end of the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
The Santa Fe Evening of Jazz was a great concert featuring the Rhythm and Blues, Jazz Combo, and Big Band from Santa Fe College with special guest Professor Scott Wilson from the University of Florida Jazz Studies. This Evening of Jazz was the ninth one to be held and was superbly done; getting a ticket was quick and simple, finding a seat was as easy, and leaving was not hard. The whole performance was led by Doctor Steven Lee Bingham who also played with all the bands on the alto saxophone along with giving information about each band, song, scholarship players, and on Mr. Wilson and his unique instrument called a E.V.I.. The audience had a pleasant feel, everyone was talking and laughing before and after the performance, they also were
This is what happens in the book Theses guys are granted with a magical guitar which then forms the Coyote Springs. Then then have to overcome challenges. There are many quotes to show this but I was able to narrow it down. “Thomas,” Chess said, “ if you don't want to be famous and have your stories heard, then why’d you start the band up?”
When word got out the concert was free things got a little out of hand. over 500,000 people were heading to max's dairy farm. The venue was so packed people were abandoning cars on high ways to walk there. If the insane amount of people wasn't enough, problems arouse with performers.
Like every other concert, the band is well practice, they are use to the tempo, and they make mistakes. Some sections I feel like we could have done better. Most of the time, I feel like we did pretty well. The whole band played almost better than the eight grade. When we messed up, it wasn 't a big deal. During our concert we messed up, but played well.
I attended to a concert performed by the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra on November 13th this year. This concert took place in the Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco. I chose to attend to this concert because I have never been to a performance by any youth orchestra, I was curious to see how their performance would compare to other orchestras.
Savannah Live was a musical preformance held in one of the oldest continuing theater halls in the nation. The theater, appropiately named the Historic Savannah Theater, origionally opened in 1818, yet do to years of wear and tear and several fires, the modern theater was retrofitted to look like its 1940s, art-deco self. Although the stage was in the traditional Proscienim style, the play was anything but traditional. The stage hall itself seemed like something right out of the hay day of Broadway, with lights surrounding the procienian arch, red velvet chairs and carpet, the hall was like a time caplse bringing me back into the 20th centry. Mimicing the transformations of the hall throughout the years, the musical took the audience on a journey through musical, and theatrical history.
Attending my first jazz concert was an unforgettable experience of great live instrumental music. The concert was entertaining and a very educational experience of this course. As a student in this course with little musical education, I never appreciated instrumentals, until the SDSU Jazz Concert. This concert was a really enjoyable experience with the balance of all the instruments. I really enjoyed the experience and the knowledge of music I gained from the concert. The way the conductor opened the show was very nice. As I walked in some of the violins were playing sweet melodies until everyone arrived and took a seat. They asked us to shut off our phones so we would not interrupt the concert. They had an itinerary for us to follow along with all the songs but they did not play every song that was on he itinerary. Also,
The Lovell High School Concert Band had an amazing concert on the 30th of November. The songs included Celebration and Tribute, Sleigh Ride, Spirit of the Highlands, with a bonus of the combined band on Jinge, Jinge, Jingle. While all the songs were good, they were not spectacular. One that stands out to me is Celebration and Tribute.
