Welcome to COMBO
COMBO is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping all musicians with the “business” of music, no matter what style of music you love. We are run by volunteers who love music – no one gets paid — but your membership fees help us to continue helping YOU.
Here’s how we help YOU:
- We PROMOTE your music right here on this page (See this months selected musical tracks below and the Featured Video at right)
- We EDUCATE you. Our monthly Meetings are free and feature a speaker or panel on a topic of interest to musicians. Some of the information learned at these meetings is worth thousands!
- Networking: Come to a meeting and MEET people in the music industry. Sometimes it really is all about who you know.
Please help us to continue helping you. JOIN COMBO NOW!
