The History of R&B Concerts

Rhythm and blues music, most often called R&B, is a genre that dates back to the early 1930s and 40s. Billboard Magazine first used the term “R&B” as a marketing term in 1949. Jerry Wexler, a journalist who worked for Billboard, coined the term and soon became known as The Godfather of R&B. This genre of music has strong roots in New Orleans. Sub-genres of R&B have grown to include funk, doo-wop, motown, and more.
