The third and last scheduled Friday Night Boogie dance of the season is July 14 at the Mount Pleasant Pier. The event begins at 7 p.m., and features DJ Jim Bowers spinning a variety of unforgettable oldies, beach music classics, and line dancing hits.

Then, the all-ages Shaggin’ on the Cooper returns for its fourth scheduled event of the season on Saturday, July 15 with local beach music group The Counts. This Charleston-based group popular in the ‘70s and ‘80s is performing again at Shaggin’ on the Cooper, playing beach music, oldies and other tunes. Shaggin’ on the Cooper is open to all ages. Bring a date or meet friends, let loose, breathe in the fresh air and dance the night away. Gates for Shaggin’ on the Cooper open at 7 p.m. and music starts at 8 p.m. See the season’s full band schedule below.
