EVENTS: COMBO’s Songwriters Contest Winners Showcase & Awards – Nov. 15th

Michelle Roderick – one of the performers at this year’s COMBO Songwriters Showcase

So excited! Our next “meeting” will be a showcase of the winners of our 2019 Songwriting Contest at the Walnut Room 3131 Walnut Street, Denver. Door will open at 7:30 p.m. with the show starting at 8:00 p.m. After presenting the winners playing their high-scoring songs, two-time winner Jeffrey Dallet and his band will take the stage at 10:30 to play a set of covers and their own songs.

Also COMBO member Ben Makinen will be showing a trailer for Alone at Sunset — a film-noir music video shot and directed by Makinen featuring the singing and acting talents of international recording artist (and Colorado resident) Robert Johnson. Renowned Boulder pianist and composer Scott Martin wrote and produced the atmospheric jazz ballad “Alone at Sunset”, and this film features the two of them recounting a tale of woe upon the stage of the famed Nocturne jazz club and follows Mr. Johnson drifting through Denver’s iconic RiNo district in a fog of remorse at the one great love to have slipped away.

The Show is free, open to the public and to all ages. Come early and order dinner from The Walnut Room’s awesome menu featuring some of the best pizzas in Denver and other tasty goodies!
