Live Bands For Tailgate Parties

Football season is coming! Do you know what that means? Time to find a band for the tailgate party! These three awesome groups have just what you need to keep the energy and spirits high before the game starts.

Air Tropicali

Style: Soft rock, blues, classic rock

Newcomers to Key Signature’s roster, party trio Air Tropicali offer light and classic rock favorites as well as modern pop songs in a unique, compact and dynamic configuration. The band features GreazyKeyz, professional organist for the Charlotte Checkers Hockey Team and one of the most popular keyboardists in the Charlotte area, which means he knows how to get everyone pumped up for the big game.

Rev. O and the Barnburners

Style: Dance and party hits mixed with classic rock, soul, and beach classics.

Rev. O and the Barnburners will take you and your guests back to a time when rock ruled the charts. This 5-piece band comes in hot with 4 vocalists and brings that youthful, soulful and enthusiastic spirit that every tailgate party needs. Your guests will hear a ton of rock’s greatest hits, but they should bring their dancing shoes for the soul and beach classics. What better way to warm up for cheering on the home team?

Reggie Sullivan Band

Style: Variety/R&B

Fronted by namesake bassist Reggie Sullivan, the Reggie Sullivan Band is a power-packed variety/R&B outfit from Columbia, SC. Most often heard as a trio, this band packs an outrageous amount of talent given its more convenient size, which makes them a perfect and unique fit for different types of events. Reggie Sullivan Band will make you rethink the power of the upright bass, all while keeping the good vibes flowing until kick-off.

Who We Are

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.
