ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Program Committee of COMBO has decided to cancel the meeting set for this Monday, August 24th. We will reschedule the discussion of the Lack of Diversity on the Booking/Buying Side of the Colorado Music Industry until a later date. Our sincerest apologies if this causes anyone a problem.
COMBO is about the LOVE of Music. Our mission is to assist musicians with the ins & outs of the music industry. We offer guidance and advice to help musicians advance their careers whether it been in writing, performing, teaching, or recording and sound engineering! Our articles represent some phase of the music business that could effect musicians – all musicians – everywhere. Our motto: Elevate Your Musical State!
