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!

Can you let people know to keep an eye out for camera equipment stolen from the Ace Frehley show? Full info Under “News” on this website.
TO THE PERSON(S) who broke into DenverMind Media located at 1430 W. 37th Ave., Denver, Colorado 80211 on Tuesday July 14, 2015:
We get it. Money is tight and times are tough. You saw an opportunity and you took it. Here’s the thing though – you stole a 22 year-old flute from this office, and it was a gift from my father who has since passed away. That flute isn’t worth a lot to you, but it’s priceless to us. Please, we are asking that you do the right thing and return what you stole from this office. If the items are returned, we won’t press charges and we can all just move on with our lives. Leave it back where it belongs at DenverMind Media, leave it at Patsy’s Inn Italian Restaurant, or mail it to the address above. Whatever would be most comfortable for you, just please return the flute, the computer, the cameras and the other items you took. No questions asked.
We’ve been working so hard to contribute to our neighborhood here. We bring art and music and theater to the Northside of Denver and we are proud to be a part of this historic and beautiful neighborhood. Please, be a good neighbor, do the right thing and let’s move on from what occurred.
