How the Music Scene Developed From the Forty’s to Today
It’s no secret that rock groups, do-wop, R&B, and female groups throughout the years have endured biased industry executives and close minded audiences unwilling to accept change. Through the years our musical predecessors rose beyond the glass ceiling where today it is no longer an issue. To start with many musicians came over as immigrants. Not speaking the language, living in substandard boarding houses, annoying neighbors and landlords with noisy rehearsals, causing them to be continually evicted. Taking anything to support themselves and their families they were able to make a living. Remember they had to play long sets unlike the guidelines of today. Girl groups had to endure strict guidelines appearance wise matching outfits and  well rehearsed, fighting off advances from club owners while fearing for they’re jobs if they didn’t comply. Black groups were under pressure appearance wise requiring matching suits and perform flawlessly. In the long run it created a standard for a dignified presentation. Rock groups were under scrutiny for drugs constantly searched, arrested for vandalism and disturbing the peace. All endured poor conditions because many of the clubs were located in run down neighborhoods. Still, clubs owners treated performers with respect and dignity acknowledging the years it took to develop their talent. Pressure was great. If a member showed up to the job with a wrinkled suite unpolished shoes or a dress that didn’t fit right, it resulted they would be docked. What came out of necessity contributed to what music is today, a mix and appreciation for international groups and live performances.
