Shaggin’ on the Cooper Series Continues July 13 with The Sneakers

[MOUNT PLEASANT] – Listening to live music in the summer night’s breeze is the perfect way to enjoy your evening. On July 13, the Mount Pleasant Pier invites all ages to let loose as the Shaggin’ on the Cooper series continues with The Sneakers.

Locally known for their funky beach music, the four-piece party band The Sneakers will ignite the dance floor to make your night a memorable one.

As the Lowcountry savors the summer, 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 and the event is likely to sell out, 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. Food and beverages are not included in ticket prices and coolers are not allowed. Guests are allowed to bring their own chair.
