Multi-Site Events and the Future of Live Entertainment

In-person and hybrid events can be a key solution in the difficulties that we’re facing with human connection and a low sense of morale. One of the most common challenges that event industry professionals have been facing since the pandemic began is figuring out how to host events safely, effectively and efficiently during these uncertain times.

For North Carolinians, the phases of reopening have posed many obstacles for hosting in-person events despite industry professionals’ preparedness to enhance event safety measures. For South Carolinians, state restrictions have been more lenient, but safety is still a concern.

 For everyone, multi-site events can be a game-changer.

What is a multi-site event? Simply put, a multi-site event is a function that takes place at multiple locations simultaneously and offers a similar experience at each, from the decorations to food and beverage, and, our personal favorite, entertainment.

How are multi-site events a safer option? By offering multiple locations, a multi-site event can allow more guests to participate while practicing social distancing and makes it easier to trace the location of guests by assigning them to a venue.

Where does live music fit? Thanks to technology, there’s a bit of flexibility in how multi-site events can utilize live music. Because the goal is for each event site to have a nearly identical experience across the board, the first things to consider are the genre of music and number of musicians. Once the genre and size category are settled, you can choose between having a different, yet similar Key Signature musician perform at each event site, or one Key Signature musician stream to all sites remotely from a professional sound stage with turn-key production offered by one of our sound production partners.

Key Signature Entertainment
Company Profile:

Brandon Crumpton, owner of Key Signature Entertainment, started booking live music for events over 15 years ago. He has led the company through a growth period booking and producing entertainment to an average of over 600 events a year. Key Signature Entertainment has 3 full-time employees and has developed an event staff to assist with larger, award-winning events throughout the season. Key Signature Entertainment was chosen as the 2018 Service Provider of the Year by the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority. This honor was voted on by key decision-makers in Charlotte’s hospitality and events industry.

Early in his career, Brandon realized that event professionals and musicians speak a different language. He noticed that both were trying to achieve the same results, but just went about the process differently. He built Key Signature Entertainment with the goal of bridging that communication gap so that both musicians and event professionals could produce successful events safely, effectively and efficiently.

Services offered by Key Signature Entertainment include research, vetting, concert production, and band booking for live, hybrid and virtual events. Our specialty is taking your ideas and creating a safe and fun live music experience for both you and your guests to enjoy.

Key Signature Entertainment is a company of musicians who book musicians. Our motto is “Good People, Good Music.” We understand that we are in the people business first and the music business second. We’ve created an easy process to find, secure, and contract the right entertainment for your event. We understand that it can be difficult to know if the live entertainment you’re hiring is talented, professional and up-to-date on event safety guidelines, so let us use our expertise in music and people to secure the right fit for your event.

Call us at (704) 568-1968 or go to the “How to Book” page to fill out the form, and we’ll have a representative contact you to help find, select and secure the right entertainment for your event.

Key Signature Entertainment has always been a company that has supported diversity & inclusion since day one.
