KUDOS: Jonny Barber – New President of CCMHOF
COMBO congratulates Jonny Barber, our own Velvet Elvis and The Spivs, who has been elected as president of the Colorado Country Music Hall of Fame non-profit organization. Jonny also founded and runs the Colfax Museum now located on West Colfax Avenue.
Becky Luckenbach: Love the Colfax Museum. Be prepared to stop by for an hour and then be there much longer. It may be small but there is so much to soak in. Jonny has lots of tales to pass on and you never know when another Denverite will pop in with amazing stories of the longest wickedest Street in America.
Dane Colfax Stephenson: A museum that is all about Colfax Avenue, owned and curated by a gentleman who knows everything about Colfax and who truly lives for and loves this crazy Avenue. This is a must-see in Denver!!
