EVENTS: Calendar and Bell Ringers for Independence Day, July 4, 2019
Even though their fund-raiser concert was cancelled, the Colfax Museum would still appreciate your donations – and maybe a space to move to! | COMBO is about the “Business” of Music. Our mission is to disseminate information that musicians need to know in order to advance their own careers! Our articles represent some phase of music business that could effect musicians everywhere.
PLEASE! Don’t kill yourself. Call a friend, wait until after midnight, get a lot of sleep, or call 1-800-273-TALK. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. You have a purpose in life – you will find it but you need time. Trust us – You’ll be glad you stayed alive at some point in the near future. Walk outside and look at the stars and think how much you will miss them. (And NO – you won’t be one of the stars…)
