So, you ask, just exactly what did COMBO do this year? To start off, Dare Roseberry pushed us into changing the acronym. It occurred to us that if we did a d/b/a the Colorado Music Business Organization, it would give us the acronym of COMBO, solving a years old dilemma of which acronym we should use. We are still officially the Colorado Music Association, but d/b/a/ Colorado Music Business Organization or COMBO.CALL FOR PERFORMERS
