People have always enjoyed music throughout the history of humanity. The types of music that people like to listen to vary from culture to culture. In today’s era of global interconnectedness, this cultural gap has been reduced by a great margin. It’s not uncommon for artists to now find international fame. While a love for music has always persisted throughout generations, what keeps changing is the type of music that people enjoy. In today’s age, the most popular form of music is pop music. Pop music’s wide appeal comes from the fact that the lyrics are based on topics and tropes that many people can relate to such as love or parties.
Pop songs are usually made by male or female artists who sing alone. Examples of such people are Shakira, Michael Jackson, and Rihanna, among several others. The music industry is saturated with these types of pop singers. Many people want something different that doesn’t fit into this general format. Boy bands are one such alternative.
Boy bands consist of multiple young men who are usually very attractive. Boy bands are designed to appeal to young, teenage, female listeners of pop music. Towards this end, the emphasis on the visual appeal of the band members over their actual musical talent actually makes sense. The number of members which a band can have is not definite. Some like the Jonas brother has just three people as part of the band whereas others like One Direction can have as many as five members. Musical talents of band members can also vary. Continuing with the previous example, some of the Jonas brothers can play instruments like drums and guitars whereas, in the case of One Direction, the members can only sing.
The appeal of boy bands comes mostly from their members, not the music that they make. Hence, to be profitable, they need to often organize events where their fans can come face to face with them. A meeting with fans gives the opportunity to all fans attending to meet their idols. The huge footfall and crowd at such an event boosts the reputation of the band and shows how culturally relevant it is. Hence, with one event like this, a boy band can accomplish two goals simultaneously.
The next question that needs to be asked is which kind of venue would be the best place to host this sort of a meet-up? Your first instinct may tell you a dining or banquet hall is the ideal place but the problem with these types of venues is that they’re far too generic. These kinds of places are usually used to hold corporate meetings. It would be out of character for a boy band to host the event in a place like this. Instead, the best place to meet fans would be at a swimming pool. Think about it: which type of place is most often shown in movies as the ideal place to party? Movies like Project X have glamorized swimming pools as more than just a place to swim. In fact, it’s the only place where it’s acceptable to be half naked. This is great since the fans get to be free from the constrictions of clothes and see their idols without their shirts as well. A robotic pool cleaner should be used before the event to ensure that venue is clean and hygienic.
