A boyband, also written boy band or called boy group, is a vocal music group consisting of young male singers who were in their teenage years or in their early twenties at the time the group was formed. Usually, boy band members do not play any musical instrument so that the term "band" is used in a broad sense. During their concerts, Boy band members generally dance highly choreographed performances. Some boybands disband after a short time of performing together, some continue without some original members or replace them by others, and some are still or again active decades after their formation.
Groups of young male singers existed in the 19th century already,
