Band

Most typically taken to mean a bunch of musicians with a common purpose. Usually it takes at least three to be a band, otherwise it is a duo or solo.

A Band may exist for dances or for concerts or for singing to. Early bands were called Waits and probably derived from Watchmen who used instruments to mark the time and sound the alarm. The term became used for all purpose village bands in the middle ages.
