The holidays just aren’t the same without things like “The Christmas Song,” carolers at your door, and Santa Claus. Luckily, these are all still options this year…well, sort of. With a little bit of creativity, you can still have your holiday events and keep everyone safe, even the elves and reindeer. ‘Tis the season, right?

All entertainers offered through Key Signature are compatible with virtual/hybrid and multi-site event models with the help of our production partners!


With safety measures like social distancing, face masks, and our Event Safety Guidelines (see below) in place, we’ve been able to continue providing live music for private events that fall under the ever-changing gathering restrictions. Consider the eclectic acoustic guitar playing of Jeff Brown, or Bradford Ray Bailey’s 8-string jazz hybrid guitar style for your next small holiday gathering. 

A trio or quartet of professional carolers dressed in Victorian outfits can add classic and festive charm to any holiday event. Because singing can project respiratory droplets, some caroling groups are offering to perform wearing face masks specially constructed for singing. Reach out to a Key Signature representative to find a caroling group that can offer this service.

Option 3: Santa Claus (and Mrs. Claus, too!)

Santa and Mrs. Claus are still in high demand this year, but they’re taking extra steps to keep everyone (and themselves) safe. So far, they seem to be most comfortable in a dedicated and non-contact environment, such as a large sleigh, the inside a large snow globe, or with a physical barrier of large gifts, candy canes, or even just the Christmas tree for photos. However, drive-by events work just as well!

Company Profile:

Brandon Crumpton, owner of Key Signature Entertainment, started booking live music for events over 15 years ago. He has lead the company through a growth period booking and producing entertainment to an average of over 700 events a year. Key Signature Entertainment has 2 full time employees and has developed an event staff to assist with larger, award winning events through out the season. Key Signature Entertainment was recently chosen as the 2018 Service Partner of the Year by the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority. This honor was voted on by key decision makers in the 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.

Key Signature Entertainment is a company of musicians who book musicians. Our motto is “Good People, Good Music”. We understand that we are in the people business first and the music business second. We’ve created an easy process to find, secure, and contract the right entertainment for your event. We understand that it can be difficult to know if the live entertainment you’re hiring is talented and professional, so let us use our expertise in music and people to secure the right fit for your event.
