A music delivery system is the catalyst which helps translate the musical needs of audiences, performers, and the general community into live performances. The traditional models for the delivery of the performing arts were failing. A new model was needed.

Long before the music delivery system model would be described, two Miami teenagers had a innate understanding of the failures of the traditional models. In 1968 they conceived of the structure that was to become P.A.C.E. Concerts. The Theoretical model was put into practice by the Miami-based P.A.C.E. Concerts.

This paper summarizes the failures of the current models, analyzes alternative models, and how P.A.C.E. Concerts created a new model.
