EVENTS: Calendar and Bell Ringers for September 19th, 2019
As our seasons change, please be mindful of those at risk of suicide. Reach out, say something… so many are feeling hopeless or depressed. If you are needing to talk about how you are feeling, please call the national hotline at 1-800-273-8255. Or the Colorado Crises Line at 1-844-493-8255. Contact someone. You are loved and I care about you. ~ From COMBO’s Vice-president Annette Cannon on Facebook
COMBO is about the “Business” of Music. Our mission is to educate musicians about the ins & outs of the music industry. We, as such, do not “promote” music but we do! In other words, we are not promoters like Live Nation or AEG but rather the behind-the-scenes people who help musicians to advance their careers! Our articles represent some phase of music business that could effect musicians – all musicians – everywhere.
