Live Music Venues

There are many live concert halls and music venues that are designed with some of the best acoustics. The Amway Arena, in downtown Orlando, is one of the best and is one of the most famous music venues that was built in 1989. It has been host to many concerts, arena football, ice-skating shows, ice hockey and many other entertainment events. A lot of high school graduations are also held at the Amway Arena each spring.A music venue is any location used for a concert or musical performance. Music venues range in size and location, from an outdoor band shell or bandstand or a concert hall to an indoor sports stadium. Typically, different types of venues host different genres of music. Opera houses, bandshells, and concert halls host classical music performances, whereas public houses, nightclubs, and discothèques offer music in contemporary genres, such as rock, dance, country and pop.
Music venues may be either privately or publicly funded, and may charge for admission. An example of a publicly funded music venue is a park bandstand; such outdoor venues charge nothing for admission. A nightclub is a privately funded venue; venues like these often charge an entry fee to generate a profit. Music venues do not necessarily host live acts; disc jockeys at a discothèque or nightclub play recorded music through a PA system.
Depending on the type of venue, the opening hours, location and length of performance may differ, as well as the technology used to deliver the music in the venue. Other attractions, such as performance art or social activities, may also be available, either while music is playing or at other times. For example, at a bar or pub, the house band may be playing live songs while drinks are being served, and between songs, recorded music may be played. In fact, some classes of venues may play live music in the background, such as a performance on a grand piano in a restaurant.
