EVENTS: This Saturday! COMBO’s Winning Songwriters’ Showcase & Awards Show – Sat. Nov. 18th

Jenny Shawhan (from her website) – Showcasing at COMBO’s Songwriters Showcase on Nov. 18th

COMBO recently ran a Songwriting Contest where 19 songs were selected by our judges to be included on a compilation CD that will be given out to music professionals all over the country. Those songwriters have been asked to showcase their songs during our Awards Celebration which awards Colorado music-related businesses for their contributions to helping out musicians throughout the state. The Awards & Showcase Ceremonies will take place from 8:00 until 10:00 p.m. At 10:30, “Fifty Cent Friend” will take the stage to play some of your favorite cover tunes as well as many of their own award-winning originals. Terrific FUN band featuring COMBO’s own Joel Ashmore on Bass. Come one, come all. Free! And since the Hard Rock Café is a full-restaurant, bring the family, enjoy dinner, and support our local songwriter/musicians!
