Boomer Music

Baby boomers were born starting in 1946 after Amerian soldiers returned from World War II.  Children of television and rebellion from the stifling 1950s, these kids in puberty were heavily influenced by radio, rock music and these were teens who were both seen--and heard!

50s BobbySox Music
Young people who grew up in the 1950s as the War Babies were a small generation. Their dads were off to World War II. These kids were older teens and young adults who missed the drugs, the long hair, and for many, even missed Vietnam. But they were more clean cut and influenced to rebel musically during the birth of rock and roll.

A type of African-American musical art that was first developed in the Mississippi Delta region at the end of the nineteenth century, the blues, like many musical expressions, is difficult to define. Some people think of the blues as an emotion; others regard it primarily as a musical genre characterized by a special blues scale containing twelve bars and three chords in a particular order.

 Its influence on jazz, gospel music, theater music, rock, soul, hip-hop, and almost every form of popular music since the 1920s has been enormous.
