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 month’s selected musical tracks below and the Featured Video);
  • 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.
  • If you join COMBO as a paid member, you will be entitled to a free bar code for your next recorded project!

 Please help us to continue helping you.  JOIN COMBO NOW!
