O'Combo

BandFolkRock

O'Combo is a Folk-Rock, Blues band from Colorado. Our love of music challenges us to be the best WE can be. But making music is not a competition between us and other bands; it's about playing [music] with our friends and moving toward our goal of "Putting the Art Back into the Music."

Biography

Begin with raw vocals and provocative, relevant lyrics. Underscore everything with a driving beat, slick guitar riffs, and haunting harmonica melodies. Then throw in a voluptuous sax, harmony that is both rich and inviting, along with the occasional tambourine, mandolin, and pennywhistle. The result is O'Combo, a hot young group on the Boulder music scene.

“We believe that music shouldn't be a competition; it should be a harmonious blend of honesty and creativity. When we all get together we experience something that we call "humane music".”

O'Combo is a work in progress. In the past year they have gone from playing Longmont coffee houses and book stores to Colorado venues such as: the Aggie Theater, the Rock N Soul Cafe, Cricket on the Hill, and Herman's Hideaway. Since recording their first CD, they have become better musicians and have grown tighter as a group. In this age of digital static and cyber downloads they are honoring the traditions of live music on stage in front of an audience, a concept that is quickly becoming a lost art.
