In case you’re wondering, COMBO’s Board Members are Barb Dye (President), Dr. Annette Cannon (Vice-President), David Barber (Treasurer), Angela Whaley & Tracey Chirhart (acting secretaries), Lee Bagby (Featured Songs Editor), Sheena Morgan (Membership), and Members-at-Large: Alex Teitz, Clark Hagan, Johnnie Johnson, and Jamie Krutz. The board meets once a month, mostly via teleconference due to the coronavirus, where they plan our monthly programs and so much more. Since, during the summer months, we usually do fun things like events (Guitar Show), festivals (Juneteenth), and tours, we’ve put our thinking caps on to keep everyone safe and healthy so be sure to check out this month’s meeting on June22nd at Events below! See YOU there!
COMBO is about the “Business” of Music. Our mission is to teach musicians about the ins & outs of the music industry. We offer guidance and advice to help musicians advance their careers! Our articles represent some phase of music business that could effect musicians – all musicians – everywhere. Our motto: Elevate Your Musical State!
