Something New Entertainment looks for team members with a variety of background experience in the performing arts — as theatrical technicians, theatrical designers, electricians, sound engineers, live musicians, vocalists, etc., so it’s no surprise that , like all of our staff, Karah “DJ Keys” Vance carries a wealth of collateral knowledge — especially in music, sound design, public speaking, entertainment management and design, and performance.
