We aim to please our couples in anyway possible:

  • Self-managed: When you are talking to us you are talking to an actual member of the band who will plan with you and/or your wedding planner the song selection, announcements, and timeline prior to and the big day so you don't have to worry about anything!
  • Customized sets: You will receive a list of almost 200 songs (ranging in all genres to please all kinds of crowds) to select requests from so we gear the set towards what we think your crowd will like, while getting in your personal favorite songs and making sure we don't play anything you don't want!

    Best Wedding Band Ever!

    Wow!!!!! There are not enough words to put into a review about this band! The Cooper River Band is professional, experienced and knows how to get a crowd dancing and singing! They performed at our wedding and we had so many compliments how great they were. David was easy to work with from the song selection to the reception setup. He is very detailed oriented and truly wants his clients to have a blast! They are versatile and can sing Bruno Mars to Garth Brooks to David Bowie. They even learned the song “Red Red Wine” and performed it in memory of my dad. It was a very sweet moment that my family and I will never forget. Thank you for the memorable moments and dancing!!!!

    Everyone will be dancing

    Permanent Vacation was the best reception band I could have asked for. Having never heard them before, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was definitely NOT disappointed. We had so many people dancing who normally wouldn’t dance. So many compliments on the band after the fact. They remained flexible and were receptive to the last minute changes. Above all, they allowed all of the little nieces and nephews to sing and dance with them on stage.

    Permanent Vacation was the perfect choice for our wedding! My husband (then fiance) and I had been to a wedding that they performed at and had such a great time. Because of this, they were the first thing I booked when we started planning our own wedding. The music was phenomenal and they learned one of our favorite songs for our first dance! Michael is extremely responsive and accommodating! All of our guests raved about the fantastic music. I highly recommend Permanent Vacation for anyone looking for a great band!
