movie Summer of Soul

We want to thank COMBO Board Member Sheena Morgan for her terrific graphics that she has been making for various COMBO events! Check out the one at the heading of the newsletter on our Songwriting Contest! She is very clever and gifted! She has also been posting many music-related articles directly to Facebook. BTW, the song contest only has a couple of weeks to go. If you plan to enter, get your entry in ASAP. https://www.coloradomusic.org/songwriting-contest/

Movie Night With Barb was a lot of fun! We saw “Summer of Soul” at the Esquire Theater on 6th & Downing. Loved the movie! The really GREAT music made ME want to get up and dance. The movie was filmed over 6 weekends of concerts in Harlem, NY back in 1969 – same year as Woodstock and the Moon Landing. We all know about Woodstock and the Moon but this movie delves into the history of the Black bands and organizations that we so loved. So cool getting to see “Babies” Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Fifth Dimension, and so many gospel groups (one led by the Reverend Jesse Jackson) who really knew how to get you on your feet. Pure nostalgia, though, seeing Mahalia Jackson and Aretha Franklin. Would love to go back in a time machine to bring David Ruffin (of The Temptations) to the present and have him do a sing-off with Mariah Carey. I’d bet on David being the winner! What a loss of a great talent…

Our next general meeting will be a social get-together on Monday, July 26th at Illegal Pete’s on Colfax & Race, Denver, any time between 6:00 & 9:00 p.m. Come HUNGRY!! “Dutch Treat.” (See Events for more details).
.
Not yet on the calendar but next Movie Night With Barb will be to see Jennifer Hudson starring as Aretha Franklin in “Respect”. Following the rise of Aretha Franklin’s career from a child singing in her father’s church’s choir to her international superstardom, RESPECT is the remarkable true story of the music icon’s journey to stardom.

Great idea! This is what a post in here [Facebook] could look like: “Going to [night club, concert] tonight at 10:30, looking for two friends to walk with me into the party.” *Then you can connect on messenger (two friends always so there isn’t one person walking alone and at the party can find two friends to walk you to your car/uber/ride).
