Our apologies. A technical error sent out last week’s newsletter incorrectly. We will repost next week (September 24th) in its entirety. || It is that time of the year when we look for music-oriented people to join our board. If you think you’d like to spend some time with us, let us know. We hold board meetings once a month either via telephone or Zoom conference. Also, we are planning on holding our Songwriters’ Contest next summer 2021. If you would like to be a judge, please let us know! Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested with your phone number and President Barb Dye will call you back to discuss.
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 affect musicians – all musicians – everywhere. Our motto: Elevate Your Musical State!
