Jeff Franks, a DJ as well as a sound engineer at Colorado Sound Studios, who specializes in recording eletronic-style music with electronic instruments, and Walt White, an engineer and DJ for the largest collective of dance clubs in Denver, will be speaking at the next general meeting on “The Future of Electronic Music”. They will define “electronic music”, and break it down into styles. You might be interested in knowing that if you use “electric keyboards” in your band, you are involved in “electronic music”.
Jeff and Walt will also talk on jobs that might be available in the business of electronic music.
When: Sunday, September 28th
Where: Breckenridge Brewery Ballpark Pub, 2222 Blake Street, Denver
Time: 7:00 until 9:00 p.m.
Ages: All ages – The venue is a restaurant and people of all ages are welcome!
Remember: Metered parking is free on Sundays so come early for a free spot, and have dinner while you’re there! The Breckenridge Brewery is catty-corner from Coors Field (Blake is a one-way street going south).
JIM MORRISON PREDICTED THE FUTURE OF MUSIC IN 1969
The Doors front man explained his vision of the future of music, and nails it. (And, quite frankly, it has to do with COMBO’s September 28th’s meeting subject!)

COMBO’S BOARD OF DIRECTORS UP FOR RENEWAL
COMBO’s Board of Directors is looking for new members. The board is currently Barb Dye, President; Andy Ard, Vice-President; Mark King, Secretary; and David Barber, Treasurer. Mark and David also serve as co-webmasters. Also serving are Annette Cannon, Ombudsman; Doug Garvey (Pueblo Songwriters); Johnnie Johnson (of Innervision); and Bradlee Marick (Mulinjer, Inc.); Serving as advisors and legal counselors are Todd Myers, Esq., and Steve Replin, Esq. Johnny Brick serves as Bar Code administrator.
Our board meets once a month, usually on the first Sunday of the month, via telephone conference so you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home! We plan around 6 general meetings a year, and participate in other community activities such as the Guitar Expo, The CHUN – UMX auditions, and the Riot Fest. We run workshops and seminars with some of the best teacher-musicians in Colorado. We also have just plain old fun times like our Grammy Party held at the SIE Film Center in Denver! The goal of COMBO is to help musicians with the business of music. Other groups focus on promoting a certain genre of music but all musicians need to have help with their business. To the best of our knowledge, COMBO is the only not-for-profit organization of its kind in the world!
Since COMBO is a non-profit, there is no pay for your service but you’ll sure make some great friends in Colorado’s music scene. And you don’t have to live in the Denver area – one of our current Board members is Doug Garvey who lives in Pueblo. Doug has lead the Pueblo Songwriters Group, and is currently active in three different bands as well as managing a couple. . . which means he’s seen how badly musicians need to learn more about the business of music!
If you are interested in serving on the COMBO board, please call 720-570-2280 and leave a message with why you would like to serve, and some qualifications. Or send an e-mail to President@coloradomusic.org
