COMBO Board Member Angela Whaley will host our next “general” meeting on ZOOM on Monday, July 27th starting at 7:00 p.m. Join us for a general discussion on Diversity in the Music Industry. The subject was brought up in an article in Denver’s 303 Magazine written by Kori Hazel. He laments that lack of people of color and women hold very few positions in the areas of Buying and Booking not only in Denver and Colorado but in the nationwide industry. The article’s link follows.
