Premiere party band from Charleston, SC performing the greatest songs from all genres and eras.

Weddings & Corporate Events

We love weddings and corporate events and are great working with wedding/event planners to MC and announce timeline events and rolling with the flow when things change! We are not an agency, so you will have comfort knowing that your contact will be someone performing at your event!


The Cooper River Band has over five decades of combined experience stemming from longtime Charleston cover bands Permanent Vacation and Souled Out, playing from The Blessing of the Fleet to over 400 weddings. With multiple music teachers in the band as well, we have the experience you need!

Musical Diversity

We play a wide array of popular songs so there's something for everyone at your event, from your flower girl to your grandmother. We have an extensive and continually-growing song list covering soul, pop, rock, r&b, hip-hop, funk, and country from the 60’s to today!


We offer our core 4-piece group as an affordable option, but for weddings and corporate events we add saxophone and keyboards for a higher energy expansion! We can also further append our group with a horn section, additional singers, DJ, and more!

Reviews from our clients
David and the band are so awesome! They were our wedding band and did a spectacular job! From the beginning David was so easy to communicate with and made it completely stress free. He listened to our requests and was beyond professional. Their range is beyond and had something every guest could enjoy. The band was our favorite part of the wedding and our friends and family were so impressed!

Wow!!!!! There are not enough words to put into a review about this band! The Cooper River Band is professional, experienced and knows how to get a crowd dancing and singing! They performed at our wedding and we had so many compliments how great they were. David was easy to work with from the song selection to the reception setup. He is very detailed oriented and truly wants his clients to have a blast! They are versatile and can sing Bruno Mars to Garth Brooks to David Bowie. They even learned the song “Red Red Wine” and performed it in memory of my dad. It was a very sweet moment that my family and I will never forget. Thank you for the memorable moments and dancing!!!!

The Cooper River Band played for our son’s wedding and they were absolutely AMAZING! Starting with my initial contact with David and throughout the process, he was always responsive, kind, and easy to work with. The musicians and singers are fantastic! They have an extensive play list with a broad range of songs. They made the reception a night we will never forget and guests were dancing to every single song! I would highly recommend them over and over again!!!
