CONCERTS BY TYPE OF MUSIC

  Concert listings on the summer site have always been divided by city and date, for all cities combined and for each of the three areas covered. Over the years, some viewers have requested a page listing the concerts by type of music. Trying to separate the concerts by type of music (without adding a search function) has been problematic for several reasons. First, some cities and venues do not list information on the type of music for every concert, only the band/artist name. Second, some bands list the type of music they play in widely divergent categories (such as R&B/Dance/Latin Jazz), making it difficult to place them in any one format. Finally, some cities/venues with events featuring multiple bands do not list any of the groups individually, using phrases such as "live music all day long." This page was added as an attempt to accomodate requests for concert listings by type of music. The categories which included are listed below. Performances from all three areas (Los Angeles County, Orange County and the Inland Empire) are incorporated together and listed in order by the day of the performance. Bands found in the listings with no indication as to type of music played will not be included here, but bands are welcome to send an e-mail to the site with information to be added to the listings. Please anticipate that this page will be available a day or two after the general city and date listings are posted each month.

ZYDECO

There are no listings in this category at this time.

ONE FINAL THOUGHT ON THE CONCERTS: All of the concerts in the listings are free to the general public, and there are some truly outstanding programs. However, many of the groups and organizations sponsoring these concerts incur substantial costs in bringing them to you year after year. Donations which allow them to continue their tradition of bringing quality music to the general public at no charge are appreciated.


. . . AND ONE REQUEST FOR VISITORS: Survey forms are sometimes passed out at concerts/event venues, and the question "How did you hear about this event?" is often asked. If you are attending an event you found on this site and receive such a form, it would be much appreciated if you let them know that you found the information on www.dorothyswebsite.org. Thank you!
