The music of Dallas, like the rest of Texas is a compendium of many genres: Tejano & Conjunto, Western Swing, Jazz, punk rock, mariachi, religious, country, hip hop, electronic, gothic and industrial, rock and roll, and the blues. The Deep Ellum Central Railroad Track area, immediately east of Downtown, originally became popular during the 1920s and 1930s as the prime jazz and blues hot spot in the South. Artists such as Blind Lemon Jefferson, Robert Johnson, T-Bone Walker, Huddie "Lead Belly" Ledbetter, and Bessie Smith all played in original Deep Ellum clubs such as The Harlem and The Palace.
Following World War II, the success of Deep Ellum started to fade. The ever-growing availability and use of the automobile led to the removal of the Houston & Texas Central railroad tracks to make way for the Central Expressway, and by 1956 the streetcar line had been removed, as well. Businesses closed, residents moved to the suburbs and the music all but stopped. By the 1990s, the area rebounded to some extent and Deep Ellum became home to many bars and nightclubs. The neighborhood witnessed another steep decline in the early 2000s, but today, Deep Ellum is again on the upswing as a cultural, musical, and entertainment center of the city.
Throughout the 1940s, 50s and 60's, country, western, and blues continued to flourish in Dallas, producing many notable entertainers including influential electric guitarist, Stevie Ray Vaughan. As rock'n'roll swept the land, Dallas has also become a hotbed for producing progressive, edgy music; a trend that has continued to this day. Other popular musicians with a Dallas connection include Mike Nesmith of the Monkees, and the female country rock group, the Dixie Chicks. Big D is also known as a major center for Texas hip-hop and rap.
Dallas has a vibrant classical music scene, as well. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) performs its concerts in the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in the Arts District of downtown Dallas. The Meyerson Symphony Center, designed by famed architect I.M. Pei, opened in September 1989. It is considered one of the world's greatest orchestra halls. In addition to the DSO, it is home to the Dallas Symphony Chorus, and is the primary performing venue of the Dallas Wind Symphony, which was founded in 1985, and is regarded as one of the world's leading wind orchestras.
Some of Dallas’ other, major musical venues include Good Records, The Prophet Bar, Dada Dallas, The Kessler Theater, South Side Music Hall, the House of Blues, the Granada Theater, Trees, the Gexa Energy Pavilion, the American Airlines Center, The Bomb Factory, and the Winspear Opera Center. Some smaller bars and lounges that feature live music are: Adair's, Crown & Harp, The Common Table, Opening Bell Coffee, The Free Man, the Twilite Lounge, Klyde Warren Park, the Balcony Club, and The Rustic.
Popular Dallas music festivals include: the Dallas Music Festival at The Curtain Club and Liquid Lounge; the Homegrown Festival in the Deep Ellum entertainment district, featuring over 100 bands and singers performing on four stages; the H2O Music Festival in the historic Cotton Bowl; the Blues & Jazz Festival at the Dallas African American Museum; and the Dallas International Guitar Festival which is 37 years old.
