    Frequently Asked Questions

    Contacting us via email or phone will put you in touch with a member of The Cooper River Band. Together we will work out the details of your event including location, timeframe, and other details that may affect your quote. After that, we will send a signed contract and request a deposit to reserve the date. About four weeks from the event we will request a timeline for the event and send out an updated song list. We will ask that you mark songs from our list that you definitely want and that you definitely don’t want because we customize each client’s setlist based on their musical preferences! If you have any song requests or unique requests, please let us know early in the booking process! We will be available to coordinate timeline events with your wedding or events planner as well up to the day of the event!

    The Cooper River Band is a band, not a booking agency! We are a four-piece group providing lead vocals, guitar/vocals, bass/vocals, and drums. We have a small pool of keyboardists and saxophonists that we perform with for large events like weddings and corporate events, but we formed as a four-piece in order to offer a range of band sizes and pricing options. Some bands can perform two shows at the same time because they  revolving-door members so you don’t know who you’ll get at your event, but we do not book events without the majority of our core members available. 

    We have a list of base prices based on location, the requested size of the group, the timeline of performance, and any additional services that we may charge for. Please contact us for our rates.

    Our base quote will be for a maximum of three hours of performance over a four hour period (typically 3 hour sets with 2 30m breaks, or 2 90m sets with one hour break). This can include the cocktail hour or dinner if the stage/room location where the band is setup for the reception is the same stage/room location as the cocktail hour or dinner. We are flexible with different requests though!

    Our main service is that we play instruments and sing! We love to perform great music and that is what we do best. We do have the gear and ability to offer a few additional services on our own including:

    • M.C. your event at no additional cost; We welcome emceeing timeline events such as introducing the married couple and announcing prayers, toasts, bouquet toss, departure, etc.
    • Offering wireless microphone for speeches at no additional cost
    • Playing recorded music prior to performance, during timeline events, breaks, etc. We expect a timeline and playlist 14 days prior to the event so we will make sure the exact song that you practiced your first dance to will be played, that you throw your bouquet to “Tiger Rag” or are introduced to “Getting Jiggy Wit It”. Some offer this at an additional cost as “DJ service” but if our performance area is setup, we will gladly keep music that you want playing.
    Other services that we may charge for:
     
    • Overtime
    • Recorded music at alternate locations at the same venue. If you are having a ceremony outside of the reception hall and need to have speakers playing your  processional and recessional, we can provide speakers for an additional cost. Likewise with cocktail hour if it is held in a separate room than where the band is setup. 
    We do not require a stage.  We do require a flat, covered  surface that can comfortably fit the group. If we are performing outdoors we require a tent or coverage to protect our equipment. If you do provide a stage, our recommended sizes are 20′ wide by 12′ deep for the 6-piece group or 16′ wide and 12′ deep for the 4-piece group. Those are also the minimum dimensions for outdoor tenting.
