The answer is Midi. If your keyboard has midi jacks, you can control rack syths from that. Many more powerful synths have programable presets that you can toggle though with a console switch or a foot switch. (as long as the singer doesn't change the song list on you). Take a trip to Guitar Center, or Sam Ash, and spend an afternoon in the keyboard dept and learn how it's done and what you need to do it.

Back when I was in bands, midi wasn't available and I had a Piano, String machine, Organ, and two analog synths placed around me in a "u" shape. Fiddling with Moog control knobs during and after songs made life interesting. Those were the days.
