3 Live Music Ideas for Spring & Summer Weddings

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. Check out these 3 live music ideas for spring and summer weddings!


 

1. Minsky Demonte

Spring is coming early this year, and it’s almost time to start making beach plans. If you’re still putting the finishing touches on your wedding ceremony or cocktail hour, don’t forget about the music! Steel drums are a fantastic complement to an island getaway-themed wedding that will create a worry-free vacation atmosphere.

 

 


2. J’Michael Peeples

Jazz guitar is one of the less common musical styles you can find locally, and talented jazz guitarists are even fewer and farther between these days. J’Michael Peeples is one of those few, and is the perfect jazz guitar option to consider for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception because of his level of experience, professionalism, passion, skill, and the energy he radiates from his performances.

 


 

3. WireWood

An acoustic guitar and cello duo is a unique addition to an otherwise traditional springtime wedding. Greenville, South Carolina’s WireWood is a wonderful option to consider for a ceremony or cocktail hour because they have studied and taught their instruments at the collegiate level and offer a wide selection of unique arrangements of well-known songs, ranging from Top 40 selections to Frank Sinatra hits.

Perfect Cadence: Defining Moments in Our KSE Family

Toward the end of 2019, the Key Signature team decided to come up with a way to tell our audience about some of the great relationships we have with our musicians and how we became so close-knit. The bulk of our social media output is often focused on the event professional, although the professional musician is equally important. Check out some of these defining moments that brought us closer to the talented musicians who we consider to be a part of our Key Signature Family.


J’Michael Peeples

January 17, 2020 | Mikayla Mendels

J’Michael Peeples was one of the first Key Signature artists I saw after starting my internship with the company in May 2017. You could tell immediately that he had a true passion for music – he did everything he could to play until the last second before an insane thunderstorm hit at Romare Bearden Park. Soon after I became a full time employee at KSE, J’Michael actually moved from Columbia, SC to Charlotte because of how often we booked him here in the queen city. He understood that the relationship between Key Signature & himself as an artist was a two way street, which build a really strong foundation of trust.

From him being a go-to artist for many of our clients, to us meeting up in NoDa for a drink, to him always showing up to support us and other artists at events, we know J’Michael Peeples will always have our back. He’s a true example of what the Key Signature Family means.

 


April Dean of Deans’ Duets

January 24, 2020 | Mikayla Mendels

One of the reasons we have such great relationships with our clients is because we work with artists that we trust, and who we can rely on to always make sure our clients are happy.

April Dean of Deans’ Duetsis a perfect example of an artist that represents this trust. We’ve thrown some crazy things at April over the last few years – from an ensemble playing between isolated columns of a balcony where her musicians couldn’t see each other, to a last minute booking where we needed a string trio to play pop music to choreographed dancing without a rehearsal. She’s always come through for us, she’s reliable, responsive, and has a great team of musicians that she works with. She even made the drive into Charlotte for our last artist meet & greet in order to continue to build a relationship with our team and the other artists we work with.

Thank you April for all you do with Key Signature!

Jennifer Siebenaler

January 31, 2020 | Brandon Crumpton
I met Jennifer Siebenaler years ago at her own birthday party. A friend of mine was friends with her now husband and somehow I got invited to celebrate with her. Now we are all friends! That night she invited me to her church. She told me she was the music director and that my friend was the drummer in the church band. She said it was a relaxed set up and very welcoming. I went and was blown away by her talent.
As time went by I discovered that Jen could play multiple instruments. I started to wonder, “What can’t she play?” We’ve been working together for 6 or 7 years now. Need an anthem singer….call Jen! Need solo keys and vocals….call Jen! Need dueling pianos….call Jen! The list just goes on and on.
The partnership got even stronger when she became an event professional on the buyer side booking other musicians. She could easily call up her own industry contacts, but she sees value in our day to day operations. She is one of the few people we work with that understands both sides of what we do here at Key Signature Entertainment, and we appreciate her for that! Thanks Jen!

3 Live Music Ideas For A St. Patrick’s Day Event

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. Check out these 3 live music ideas for a St. Patrick’s Day event!


1. BellaNova Strings
Greenville, South Carolina’s BellaNova Strings is an electric violin and cello duo that specializes in celtic, rock and pop arrangements. They can add more pieces to their arrangement for a larger sound, and are an excellent option for a St. Patrick’s Day event because their unique instruments can add a modern twist to traditional celtic folk music.


2. Bradford Ray Bailey
Bradford Ray Bailey
 is mostly known for his distinctive use of the 8-string guitar and banjo for jazz music, but he’s also a phenomenal mandolin player. His Car’Olina JazzGrass ensemble covers a wide range of tunes which include Irish and Scottish folk songs, jazz, pop and American folk music, and makes him a fantastic St. Patrick’s Day entertainment option to consider.

 


3. Trip Rogers
We have a habit of finding some of the sweetest folks on Earth to work with, and Trip Rogers is no exception. Not only is he an awesome human being, professional and easy to work with, he also regularly performs Celtic music around the Charlotte area throughout the year, sometimes in a kilt! Check out his rendition of the traditional Irish ballad, “Wild Mountain Thyme,” performed live on Charlotte Today ahead of St. Patrick’s Day 2019.

3 Live Music Ideas For Valentine’s Day Events

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. Check out these 3 live music ideas for Valentine’s Day events!


1. Yacht Rock with Thurston Howell

Yacht Rock, or West Coast Sound, was quite popular back in the mid ’70s and early ’80s. Thurston Howell is a great option to consider for an awesome Valentine’s Day throwback dance party because they do a terrific job of recreating the sounds of classic soft rock hits.

 

 


 

2. Harp with Queen City Harpist

If your client is interested in more of a quiet evening with friends and loved ones, they may prefer a harp for background music. The warm and graceful sound delivered by Queen City Harpist is very ideal for bringing an atmosphere of elegance to your client’s Valentine’s Day event without interrupting conversation.

 

 

 


 

 

3. Saxophone with Letron Brantley

Whether playing solo or with a full band, the saxophone is the perfect touch to a romantic evening and a must-have for any Valentine’s Day event. Who wouldn’t love the sultry sound of a ruby red saxophone on the most romantic day of the year? Letron Brantley‘s signature red sax adds just the right aesthetic touch to his smooth playing.

Fred Lee IV and Late Night Special

November 15, 2019 | Mikayla Mendels

You may have noticed quite a few posts about the band, Late Night Special, on our social media during the last quarter of 2019. This is because Key Signature was in a tough situation the last week of October, and we owe this band a huge thank you for helping us through.

We had two bands scheduled for the Wingate University homecoming a few weeks back, and three hours before the second band was supposed to arrive, we got a call saying they wouldn’t make it. We were scrambling and find another group to fill in, and Fred Heintz managed to pull together a 5 piece band for us within no time. He got to the event early, almost as though he hung up the phone and drove straight to Wingate, and he and his guys put on a great show for us.

We couldn’t be more appreciative of their willingness to help us, so when we realized a couple days later that we had time for an extra performer at our showcase, it was a no brainer to call Fred. He happened to be available with a single day’s notice (a little more than last time!) and he brought an amazing trio that our clients loved. He had just the right song list, and the music added the perfect ambiance to kick off the event.

This band a perfect example of our motto – “Good People, Good Music.” Thanks, Late Night Special! 


Mike Graci and Kids in America

November 22, 2019 | Mikayla Mendels

While reflecting on this past year as a team, we couldn’t help but notice how strong our partnership with Mike Graci and Kids in America – Totally 80s Tribute has become.

Our business is most successful when the artists we work with see our relationship as a two-way street, which is exactly what our relationship with this band is.

We have a particular client in Greenville, SC that LOVES having Kids in America play at their company events. When an indirectly related client reached out to Kids in America to be the house band for a 4 day long conference, Mike didn’t think twice about sending the client our way to work out the details. He wanted to include us in this event because of the mutual respect we have for each other.

Mike and his bands always go above and beyond for our clients, and they understand the value of reviews and referrals.


Mike Ramsey

November 29, 2019 | Tius Ragan-Johnson

As event professionals ourselves, we understand that networking and being present in the industry is important for us in terms of visibility and relevance, but there aren’t as many opportunities for musicians to network as private event professionals. This past year, we wanted to change that.

We had our first ever KSE Artist Meet & Greet event back in March of this year to give our artists an opportunity to network with us and amongst each other. Mike Ramsey was among those invited, although we only booked him a handful of times throughout the years up to this point, and it completely changed our working relationship with him.

Once we got to know him a little better, we saw his comical and fun personality come out and realized that this is what he portrays through his music. He’s personable, easy going, and knows how to make others feel his positive energy through his work.Needless to say, we have established a very strong relationship with Mike since meeting him at the KSE Artist Meet & Greet just a few short months ago. As a result, we’ve been able to work with him on 4 times as many events this year as we did in 2018, just because of how much we liked getting to know him.


Dante Lewis

December 6, 2019 | Brandon Crumpton

I met Dante Lewis at one of the first concerts we ever produced at Romare Bearden Park. As soon as we saw each other we immediately thought we were related. The resemblance was just too much for us not to be. Ever since then we’ve maintained a partnership and friendship that has grown both of our businesses and we’re continuing to try new things to expand our reach. The trust between KSE and Dante Lewis is what keeps this bond strong. Every year we meet at our favorite spot in Ft. Mill and discuss our plans for the future. We don’t always agree, but our mutual respect for one another is what leads to continued success. We have his back and he has ours. He’s truly become a brother to me.


John and Judy Floyd Next Level Band of Charlotte and KRVE Band

December 13, 2019 | Brandon Crumpton

John and Judy Floyd are the owners of Next Level Band Of Charlotte and KRVE Band. NLBOC was the first project we partnered with them on. We would attend their rehearsals and give tips on what to work on and how to improve the set list. John would take our opinions to heart and incorporate them in to the band’s performances.

The members of each band are part of our KSE Family, and I am always ready for my 8am text from John about whatever is on his mind. We’ve had some great conversations about the direction of his bands and how to grow his business. In fact….during a conversation with Danyell Cherece II of NLBOC at an event, we stumbled on to our motto “Good People, Good Music.” We are honored to be a small part of their growth and success.


Bradford Ray Bailey

December 20, 2019 | Tius Ragan-Johnson

The first time I met Bradford Ray Bailey, I instantly knew he’d become one of my favorite people.

He played a public event toward the end of the summer last year shortly after I joined the team as an intern, and Brandon and Mikayla thought it would be a good chance for me to meet a musician we work with often. I went, and ended up being the only person sitting down and focusing on just the musicians and applauding after each song – everyone else was checking out the street vendors and enjoying the rest of the event. I thought he was incredible; I knew and liked all the songs he played, and I’d never seen someone play the blues on an 8-string electric guitar before. He and the drummer took a break about halfway through their set, and I introduced myself.

We chatted about my time with Key Signature thus far, and I mentioned that I was also a musician and asked about his practice routine. Without really even knowing me, Brad sat down and offered some great insight on his approach to music, and suggested some resources that helped him get to where he was then. I never forgot how warm and genuine his personality was, and I’m always happy when I get a chance to give him a call to work on an event together for that reason.

3 Live Music Ideas for a Winter Cocktail

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. Check out these 3 live music ideas for a winter cocktail!

1. Frost-Meccia Duo
Pair the electric bass as a lead instrument with a saxophonist who delivers stellar vocals, and you have a recipe for amazing and unique live music. Frost-Meccia Duo is a fantastic option to consider for entertainment that will create a relaxing atmosphere and stand out at the same time.

 

2. WireWood
Acoustic guitar and cello make for yet another unique pair. WireWood plays a variety of genres from Top 40 to rock and their own original material, and are a great option to consider if you want to hear popular tunes with an unplugged, classical string flavor. Each of the members are longtime musicians, have taught their instruments at the collegiate level and bring a strong sense of experience and professionalism to every event they perform.

 

3. BellaNova Strings
Perhaps you like the idea of classical instruments with a twist, but need a bit more versatility. Although known primarily for their typical electric violin and cello setup and energetic pop/rock sets, BellaNova Strings can start off with acoustic instruments and more classical selections and add the electric strings to build energy as the event progresses.

3 Live Music Ideas for a Corporate or Club Holiday Party

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. Here are 3 live music ideas for a corporate or club holiday party!

 

1. Straight Fire
Style: Top 40/Party Band

If you’re looking for one band that can do it all, consider Straight Fire. These corporate event veterans are a perfect option to consider for a holiday party because they can play as small as a duo for more laid back portions of the event, or as large as a 12-piece band with a DJ/emcee and horn section to really bring the heat.

 

2. Reggie Sullivan Band
Style: Fusion

Looking for something really different? Reggie Sullivan Band is just what you’re looking for because they transcend the limits of genre, blending elements of many different styles to create an inimitable musical experience. 

 

3. Late Night Special
Style: Rock/Soul

These guys really know how to hold a groove. If your guests want to dance the night away or even just kick back and listen to some awesome jams, Late Night Special is the band for you.

Hailing from the Triangle area of North Carolina, Matt has had a violin in his hands since the age of 3 and performed for audiences of over one hundred thousand around the world. His specialty is rock and pop music for solo electric violin, and he can add musicians upon request and availability.

1. Michael Cosner & The Fugitives

Based in the Triad region of North Carolina, Michael Cosner & The Fugitives is a 6-piece band that approaches the country music genre from a more traditional and outlaw country perspective, keeping true to its roots. They are a great country band option to consider because they love what they do and they do it well. The music speaks for itself!

 

2. Gal Friday Band

The real-life sisters of Gal Friday Band create an undeniably refreshing take on the genre with their unique sound and catchy three-part harmonies. If you’re interested in a distinctive country option with dynamic vocal arrangements and a little more pop influence, Gal Friday Band is a perfect option to consider.

 

3. Underhill Rose

If you’re interested in more of a folk/Americana vibe, take a listen to the Asheville-based ladies of Underhill Rose. Their use of acoustic guitar, open-back banjo and close, charismatic vocal harmonies combine to create a soulful and charming sound reminiscent of their Appalachian roots. Because they lean more toward the Appalachian folk sound with just a hint of bluegrass, Underhill Rose is a perfect option to explore if you’re considering a talented country music option that recalls Western Carolina culture.

3 Solo Guitarists for a Private Event

The following acts are perfect to consider if you’re planning a(n):

  • Outdoor event
  • Holiday party
  • Casual food/wine tasting
  • Cocktail hour
  • Dinner parties

 

1. Fred Lee IV – Guitar with Vocals

Solo guitar with vocals is a great option to explore for an event that needs live music. Fred Lee IV, frontman of Charlotte rock outfit Late Night Special, is a very talented and soulful acoustic guitarist and vocalist. Specializing in tunes from John Mayer, Bill Withers, Tom Petty and Avett Brothers, he covers a wide variety of well-known hits that will cater to any audience. Fred is a perfect solo guitarist option to consider because he adds his own distinct flavor to well-known songs, which creates an unforgettable performance.

 

2. J’Michael Peeples – Jazz/Blues/R&B Guitar

Jazz guitar is one of the less common musical styles in our local music scene, and talented jazz guitarists are even fewer and farther between. J’Michael Peeples is truly a local jazz guitar legend in the making and is the perfect option to consider for a private event because of his level of experience, professionalism, reputation and skill. 

 

3. LS Brown – Instrumental Pop Guitar

What if you don’t want vocals or jazz? The guitar is a wonderful instrument to employ for creating background music all on its own. LS Brown is a great option to consider because he specializes in recreating popular songs from the 1960s – 1980s across various genres of popular music instrumentally using just his guitar and a loop station.
