KSE Virtual Concert Series: Week of May 4, 2020

Hello Event Industry Friends!

We have decided that due to the extension of the Stay at Home order in North Carolina, we will be continuing our Virtual Concert Series throughout the month of May! Hopefully we can regain some sense of normalcy soon, but we hope that you’re staying healthy, maintaining some sort of routine, and enjoying ending your work day with us and supporting our motto, Good People, Good Music, in the meantime.

If you missed it, we started this month’s leg of the series off with our good friend Colby Dobbs this past Friday, and continue today with Mike Ramsey. Check out the lineup for the rest of the week here and don’t forget to follow our Virtual Concert Series event page on Facebook for reminders! As usual, performances will be posted onto our Facebook page (@livemusiccharlotte) by our #KSEFamily musicians around 4pm each weekday.

P.S. – If you haven’t already heard, we managed to secure media coverage from Charlotte’s Got a Lot and WSOC-TV in April to help spread the word about our efforts to support our live musicians. Thank you for helping us to keep live music alive!

Musically Yours,
Brandon, Mikayla and Tius
Positivity is Key


May 4 – Mike Ramsey


May 5 – Todd Johnson


May 6 – Michael Waters

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.

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

KSE Launches Virtual Concerts for Virtual Private Events

We recognize that there is a growing need for virtual events due to ongoing social distancing requirements, and those in the event industry are being forced to adapt and adhere to new regulations. As the demand for virtual events grows, our goal is to ensure that event professionals have a resource handy which allows them to continue offering a live music element in a way that makes sense for their clients or members. With event professionals in mind, Key Signature Entertainment and our musicians are now offering Virtual Concerts for Virtual Private Events. Continue reading for answers to your questions and examples!

What does live music look like for a virtual event? 

Whether using Zoom or another video conferencing platform to host your client’s virtual gathering, the musician will simply access the meeting using the sign-in information provided to them by the host and use audio streaming hardware and software tools to deliver a high-quality 60 to 90-minute* performance for their virtual audience. Through this format, our musicians have the ability to take requests and engage with guests, which allows the guests to enjoy the excitement and human element of live music and events while social distancing from the safety of their own homes.

*For nonmusical unique entertainment options, performance times vary.

How Do I Secure a Musician for a Virtual Event?

The process for organizing a Virtual Concert is very similar to booking for live events. First, you must secure a venue – in this case, a video conferencing platform, such as Zoom – where the event will take place. Next, you may select a musician from our Virtual Entertainment Menu to perform at the event. Then, click “Book This Artist” on the artist’s page or fill out our Booking Inquiry Form for the final steps.  Alternatively, you may reach out to a Key Signature representative using the contact form at the bottom of this page for assistance in finding the best fit for your event and budget. Virtual events are new territory for a lot of folks, so we’re here to help provide guidance and answers to any questions you may have.

What Types of Events Does This Work Best For?

  • Mother’s Day Brunch
  • Dinner Parties
  • Country Club Member Engagement
  • Team Building Meetings
  • Conferences
  • Cocktail Hours
  • Themed Receptions
  • Good Old Fashioned Concerts!

See examples below!

KSE Virtual Concert Series!

Hello event industry friends!

I think it’s safe to say we’re all craving a little interaction right now.

 We miss seeing our industry partners, attending networking events, and just being able to do our jobs – let‘s face it, we’re not used to sitting still! The last thing we at Key Signature want during this time of social distancing is to lose the joy and togetherness that live music sparks. We’d love for you to end your work day (whatever that looks like right now) with us, supporting our live musicians who are still trying to spread their love of music. Tune in to our Facebook page (@livemusiccharlotte) every weekday at 4pm, maybe grab a gla

ss of wine, and enjoy our virtual concert series, featuring our #KSEFamily musicians sharing their talents in the closest way they can to a real event right now. We’ll have different musicians featured every day, Monday-Friday at 4pm through the month of April, starting today!

Check out this week’s lineup below, and don’t forget to follow our Virtual Concert Series event page on Facebook!

Musically Yours,
Brandon, Mikayla and Tius
