Local News

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Nothing says summer like listening to live music and dancing the night away. 

According to the news release, on May 18, the Mount Pleasant Pier will come alive with the sounds of beach music and party hits when the Shaggin’ on the Cooper series continues with the Shem Creek Boogie Band. 

A longtime favorite local band for beach music, the Shem Creek Boogie Band got its start playing weekly Thursday night gigs in 1991 at the legendary Trawler Restaurant, situated along Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant. 

As summer settles on the South, bands from the Charleston area and throughout the state will perform monthly at the Mount Pleasant Pier (see schedule below). All Shaggin’ on the Cooper events are held at the foot of the 1250-foot-long pier next to Memorial Waterfront Park, the perfect spot to catch the cool breezes and the views of Charleston Harbor and the Ravenel Bridge. 

Advance tickets are $8 per person. Space is limited, so advance purchase is recommended. If available, tickets sold on site are $10. Gates for Shaggin’ on the Cooper open at 7 p.m. and music starts at 8 p.m. Beverages are available for purchase on site and food is available for sale at the Mount Pleasant Pier’s River Watch Café.
