Boy Band
A BOY BAND (or BOYBAND) is loosely defined as a vocal group consisting of young male singers, usually in their teenage years or in their twenties at the time of formation, singing love songs marketed towards young females. Being vocal groups, most boy band members do not play musical instruments , either in recording sessions or on stage, making the term something of a misnomer . However, exceptions do exist. Many boy bands dance as well as sing, usually giving highly choreographed performances. Some such bands form on their own. They can evolve out of church choral or gospel music groups, but are often created by talent managers or record producers who hold auditions. Due to this and their general commercial orientation towards a female audience of preteens , teenyboppers , or teens, the term may be used with negative connotations in music journalism . Boy bands are similar in concept to their counterparts, girl groups
