Who We Are

Brandon R. Crumpton

President/Talent Buyer

Brandon is a graduate of Wingate University with a degree in Music Business. Brandon has been in the entertainment and events industry for 14 years.

His journey began as a member of the events programming board at Wingate University. He later interned with a local booking agency here in Charlotte, who then hired him upon graduation. Brandon worked his way up from Assistant to General Manager in only 5 years.

His next step in his professional career landed him at TRIP Hospitality Resources. Brandon assisted with the company’s two publications, TRIP Magazine, and Charlotte Hospitality News. This move gave him a better background in sales, and a wider understanding of Charlotte’s events and tourism industry.

Brandon was encouraged by TRIP’s owner, Charlotte’s best musicians, family, and friends to get back into the entertainment industry; thus, Key Signature Entertainment was born. Representing some of the nation’s most talented and professional acts, Key Signature provides live entertainment for private parties and special events.

 

Carlton A. Burt

Executive Assistant

Carlton is a recent graduate of Wingate University with a Bachelor’s degree in Music. Being a recent graduate, this is Carlton’s first step into the professional world. His love for music developed at an early age. He has always loved to perform, whether it was behind a costume or piano and microphone. Carlton knew there was much more to the show than what the audience was able to see. Key Signature Entertainment encompasses his love for music, but from a different aspect. The entertainment industry allows him to grow his business knowledge while still having the foundation of music.
