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!

American Idol: How You Can Send a Season 14 Hopeful to Hollywood

You may never have Jenny From the Block’s booty or bankroll, but you can now experience some of her power. Thanks to a new American Idol initiative, fans will be able to vote a contestant through to Hollywood Week via online poll.

Season 14’s “America’s Choice” will pit four hopefuls against one another for a chance at a coveted Golden Ticket.

Audition videos from Emily Clarie Shlesinger, Kay Leon, Raven Symone Basden and Tyler Clark can be found at http://www.americanidol.com/poll — with voting open until 11:59 p.m. PT on Tuesday, Oct. 21. In addition to the poll on the American Idol site, viewers can also cast ballots using hashtags on Facebook and Twitter.

Fans may vote for a maximum of one video per day per platform per account ID during the voting period.

Check out the new movie, “One Chance”, on the life of Paul Potts, first contestant to win Britain’s Got Talent. Paul was an opera singer whose life was full of mishaps. Deeply in debt due to a bike/auto accident breaking a lot of his bones, Paul decided to enter the contest, hoping to win enough money to pay his bills! Good fun, and pretty much sticks to the true story.
