Insert surname1 Professor’s name Student’s name Course title Date An Ethnography of Megan Hamilton concert in Bozeman Montana Preface I lived my life in a musical family probably because my parents used to listen to various types of music. This actually inspired me and as time went by I also became in love with music and started listening to different types of music (Shibazaki et al., 2017). At first, my favorite genre of music was Rock music but with the invention of new technology which gave birth to electronic and house music my choice of music changed a lot and I started listening to a lot of electronic and house music and especially when I became an adult to be able to attend concerts, I started attending majority of the electronic and house concerts which has actually become part of my life now. For my ethnography, my main observation would be centered upon the concert for Megan Hamilton which was held at Bozeman Montana at the downtown zebra bar. This was a concert that the main event was to be held at night but due to anxiety and the happy feeling that most of the people had including the majority of my friends, by the time, it reaches twelve o’clock in the afternoon a crowd of people had already started gathering into the Zebra Bar. It was a surprising moment and the reason for this is because I thought I was the only person anxious to go to this concert only to find out there were many of us. The reason as to why I decided to go to this concert as early as possible is to be able to acquire the front seats at the bar so that I could get a better view of the entire concert and also I think it is the same reason as to Insert surname2 why majority of the other people came to this concert early. Other than this, it was actually advantageous for me because I knew would be able to interview people in regards as to how they felt about this concert and I knew I will acquire a positive and accurate response from them at this particular time than the night time when the concert was scheduled to start. Even though the period between 12:00 pm and 19:00 pm seemed to be very long and I was losing my patience, everyone that was already seemed to be having a great moment already and the reason for this is because everyone was already dancing to their favorite music that was being played at the bar and even some of them were already drunk and this is a clear indication that music is part of the culture of the people living at Bozeman Montana. At this particular time, the bar was already busy as I watched the waiters of this bar attending to the different clients that were coming in. Each and every moment I could spot a new face coming into the bar and I felt excited about this because I knew I would be a happy and memorable day for me in my life (Shibazaki et al., 2017). A this particular time I had to figure it out how I would approach these people in order to get feedback from them about the concert, music and their culture and felt that the best moment is when everyone had finished taking their drinks and also when everyone was a bit tired from dancing and was settled awaiting for the main event. With this ethnography it will help me understand the different culture of different people in Bozeman Montana and especially in the United States as a whole since we all know that the United States is a land that shelters people from different ethnicity and backgrounds and also the concert itself was not meant only for the people living in Bozeman Montana but also for the other people in other states. It will also enable me know and understand how music plays an important role in the various people’s lives and the reason as to why people love music and they Insert surname3 cannot do without it. For as an individual, I love music since it acts as a source of inspiration for me and at the times when I am down, with music normally everything is ok for me. In regards to my own way of thinking, I think different people have different reason as to why they love listening to music and the reason for this is because some people might listen to music and attend to various concerts only because music is a source of entertainment for them but others have a deeper meaning for this and the reason for this is because music might have changed their lives in a certain way and thus they cannot live without it. Background Bozeman Montana is a town and also a county seat of Gallatin County in the United States. The town is located in the southwest region of Montana and in the year 2016 it was stated that the region had a population of about 45,250 people which made it be the fourth largest city or town in Montana. The cool climate and the overview of the nearby mountains that surrounds the town is what makes it interesting and also it is what attracts many people to come and live in this town. Zebra Cocktail Lounge and Bar is located near the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture and according to the management and the staff members at this lounge, their main intention is to provide quality products and services to the people that visit their bar. Also, according to the staff members at this lounge and bar, they recognize music as being a key player in majority of people’s lives and also being part of the culture of many people and for this reason the management of the bar tries to be diverse in terms of the music that they play at the bar. Each and every day, the bar usually holds different events in the sense that different music bands and artist are usually hosted to entertain people at the lounge and because every individual has his/her own favorite music and believes, each and every day the bar is usually crowded by Insert surname4 different people from different places which have actually made music to be part of the culture of the people living in Bozeman. Since Bozeman is a small town, at first it was a quiet town that only had people that were minding their own business as if they did not think and value music at all in their lives. But when the Zebra lounge and bar was implemented at the town, things started to change and what was once considered a small and quiet town became the most entertaining town to live at. Observation First Observation: 04/20/2018, 12:00 pm – 20:00 pm As mention above, I was anxious to attend this concert and that’s the reason as to why I made an early preparation for this concert. I made sure that by 12:00 pm, I was already in the lounge so that I could get the front sites in order to get a clear overview of the entire concert. It was a surprise to find out that other people were already in the lounge waiting for the big moment (Shibazaki et al., 2017). That means I was not the only person anxiously waiting for this event. At this particular time and moment, there were various memorable moments that I observed. The main event was to start at 8:00 pm but by 12:00 pm in the afternoon people were already at the dance flow dancing to their favorite music with their love once and even other could sing each verse of the electronic and house music that was being played. This was a clear indication that music was a valuable asset to everyone lives. At this particular time, I also had an opportunity to interview some of the waiters that were attending to the people at the lounge and also some of the people that were enjoying themselves. The response that I got from both of these people was amazing and the reason for this is because the waiters responded by saying that, they acknowledge that life without any music is like living in a desert and that’s why they value it so much. They went and said without Insert surname5 music, Zebra Lounge, and Bar and Bozeman as a whole won’t be the same and the reason for this is because they feel that Zebra Lounge and Bar has played a significant role in changing the lives of many people in this place because each and every day a new band is invited at the lounge and also each and every day new clients attend these concerts which is an indication that music is an inspiration to many people and also it means a lot to many people. Second Observation: 04/20/2018, 20:00pm-06:00am At this particular time, is when the main event was held. The lounge was crowded with people that love music and the most amazing parts are that the crowd could sing along with the band as they entertained the crowd. The set up for the stage was amazing in the sense that, they used lighting that was of various colors which actually created an atmosphere that was appealing for a music concert and also for entertainment purposes. At this particular moment, everyone seems social to each other in the sense that you could dance with anybody which was a clear indication that music unites people and it does not matter if you are of a certain race, background or ethnicity. All is one with music. I was able to interview some of my friends at this particular time about how they felt in regards to the concert and one of my friends said that before he knew about this concert his mind was filled with stress but after he knew about the concert and decided to attend it, all the stress that he had disappeared from his mind (Shibazaki et al., 2017). Since the ancient time’s music was a way to unite people in the community and also it was part of the celebrations that took place and up to today it is the same thing, the only aspect about music that has changed is technology that is being used in music but is all the same. Conclusion With this concert, I realized that I am a social person in the sense that I made a lot of friends in this concert and also it was not difficult for me to interact with the people at the Insert surname6 concert and for this reason I came to know and understand the different ideas that people have in their minds and how they feel and value music in their lives. I also understand that sometimes life can be complicated but with music, everything can turn to be ok. Insert surname7 Works Cited Shibazaki, Kagari, and Nigel A. Marshall.

An Ethnography of the X-factor Music Competition
Music is an essential facet in the community and society in general. Essentially, music has been
as old as time having been practiced for many centuries since the time of immemorial. Therefore,
I find music as a core part in societies lifestyle and it is becoming better as society and
technology advances. My family and I fervently love different genres of music, with my parents
opting for more soft genres like the soft rocks, and the country music while I prefer hard rocks
and pop music perhaps because it resonates with my energy. Music has grow exponentially and it
has become a lucrative source of income and lifestyle with many musicians on the limelight
living a flashy life which some of us can only imagine. Hence, it is evident that as the society
advances to this millennial age, music is becoming more of the source of income and power
rather than serve the educative, cultural and heritage purposes which it is known for. It can be
argued that the content of music has been deteriorating over the years which is worrying.
However, the power of music cannot be understated since it has the power to transform, change
and redirect community to a certain direction or idea. Literally, music inspires, motivates and
even transforms. Personally, music inspires me to do some things or push my limits which
otherwise I would not have pushed if I did not listen to music. Therefore, it is imperative to
understand how music affect the community and how the community views the music in an
attempt to understand the discourses associated with music.
I attended a music competition , the X-factor grand finale competition in Britain got talent. The
competition was held in Saturday December 2nd. It was the shortest series because it was final
and did not have so many constentats and I was intrigued with the influence and the love of
music in the society.
