We understand that public health is a top priority right now for hospitality professionals as the industry prepares to bring live events back into focus. Our goal here at Key Signature Entertainment is always to bridge the communication gap so that musicians and event professionals can produce successful events effectively, efficiently, and safely. Click the link shown here to read more about our new Event Safety Guidelines on a recent blog post!

While developing new safety guidelines is important for promoting public health at events, we understand that it is just one part of the solution. With all events being forced to scale down to dramatically low attendance caps, a band of more than 5 members or so might not make sense for the foreseeable future. Take a second to dive into some of the smaller scale private event musicians below, and send us an email if you have a question about any of them!

Matt Bell
Style: Pop/Rock Violin
A high-energy electric violin performance is a fantastic way to capture guests’ attention for any event, whether it’s a social distancing 4th of July party or a virtual conference. You definitely need to check out Matt Bell‘s pure rock ‘n’ roll violin shredding!

Colby Dobbs
Style: Pop Keyboard/Vocals
If your event calls for a musician with a great personality who takes requests or you just know someone (or you) will absolutely have to hear “Bennie and the Jets,” Colby Dobbs is your pick. He’s a joy to work with and has a great sense of humor, which is a perfect match for Mike Ramsey when they play together as a duo!

JMS Jazz
Style: Jazz Trio
A jazz trio is a cost effective alternative to a large band for live events that call for more sound than a solo act can provide, and are the perfect size to help maintain social distancing. JMS Jazz offers just that, along with light pop and jazz tunes, of course!

Square Roots
Style: Pop/Rock, Blues, Country/Americana, Jazz Variety
If acoustic variety sounds like the best option, check out Square Roots. Although they typically perform as a duo under this name, guitarist LS Brown and vocalist Christina Raine each perform as soloists and can add a third to fill out the sound, which are all great options for socially distant events.

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.

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.
