3 Live Musicians for Post-Holiday Celebrations

Our motto is Good People, Good Music. We understand that we are in the people business first and the music business second, and we pride ourselves on the relationships that we uphold with our clients and musicians.

2020 is almost here, and now is a great time to lock in a musician or band for events in the first quarter of the year. Take a look at these live music ideas for some inspiration on adding an entertainment aspect to your post-holiday celebrations and award ceremonies!

Bradford Ray Bailey isn’t your everyday guitar player. His distinctive 8-string guitar is a hybrid between the standard guitar and bass, which makes it sound like he’s doing the work of two musicians on his own. This allows him to put his own tasteful spin on familiar jazz, blues, pop and R&B tunes and makes him a standout choice for any private event.



How many folk-americana bands do you know that play reggae? Flat Tire Trio  is as unique as their instruments are traditional, and no two shows are ever the same. They bring a great sense of energy to their sets, mixing elements of rock, blues and other genres in with their traditional bluegrass roots. We also like them because of how easygoing they are, and we know you will too.






We love being able to highlight a female musician who can do it all, especially in a largely male-dominated music industry. Jazz/blues artist Carrie Marshall not only has incredible vocal skills, but can accompany herself as an experienced pianist.We love working with her because of her professionalism, performance quality and the unique touch that she brings to every event.

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 700 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 recently 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 effectively and efficiently.
