    Couldn't have asked for a better ensemble

    We are so grateful we found Charleston Music. Andrew and his crew were superb and gave us everything we asked for and so much more. They are professionals through and through, and spent time learning new songs that were special to us, and went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. They produced such a beautiful sound for our outdoor wedding... we truly could not have asked for anything better. Thank you to Andrew and your team for making our wedding remarkable!!

    Highly recommend Charleston Entertainment

    Charleston Entertainment did a wonderful job at our wedding and would highly recommend them to any else planning a wedding or event in the Charleston area. Throughout the entire planning process Andrew was extremely communicative, professional, and accommodating which made it very simple for us. They have a great online library of music that makes it easy to get an idea of what certain songs will sounds like and even helped us out by providing a specific list for duet offerings. Throughout the entire evening, they did a fantastic job creating the mood of the ceremony and reception. We had numerous guests compliment on how much they enjoyed the music and couldn't have been happier with Charleston Entertainment's performance.
