Cobblestone Group

Planning a corporate event, destination wedding, or any sort of affair in Charleston? Looking for music to help set the mood? The Cobblestone Group will add the perfect touch...classy with a local flavor of Charleston.

Charleston is one of the birthplaces of "America's Classical Music", namely Jazz.   It originated in Charleston around the time, (or slightly before) that Jazz began to emerge in New Orleans.

In addition to local flavored jazzy music, the group plays a wide variety of jazzy background music to cater to varied tastes and ages. Many classic styles from Sinatra, to Swing, to Dixieland, to the Great American Songbook, to Brazilian Bossas/Sambas, to Bop, and more contemporary styles make up the extensive play list.  We tailor the selections each evening to the wishes of those in attendance.

The Cobblestone Group is recommended over and over by local event professionals because we are incredibly dependable, easy to work with, talented, and willing to do whatever it takes to please our clients.
We get tons of repeat business and have entertained International dignitaries, CEO's and board members of major corporations, well known political, entertainment, and sports figures, and even royalty. We regularly play at the top hotels, resorts, plantations, and reception sites in the Charleston and Lowcountry area.

We are a mostly acoustic group, not requiring a large sound system, and keeping the volume level perfect for conversation. We have the flexibility to easily transition from cocktails in one location, to dinner in a separate room. A microphone is available upon request for any toasts, or announcements.  We typically arrive at least an hour prior to the arrival of guests to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Did I mention that we are flexible? 

Are you in charge of planning an event, but someone says that they "don't like Jazz"? They likely have been exposed to musicians playing too "far out" and ignoring the listener.  This won't happen with our group...we take requests and can incorporate an amazing amount of popular music into our sets.  The members of the group are all full time professional musicians and play in variety/party bands as well as jazz groups. We have a vast repertoire at our fingertips.

Available as a quartet, trio, duo, or even solo jazz guitarist, the group will fit any space or budget. The group can also be expanded, adding vocalists, keyboard, and additional horns, as needed. For a different twist, the instrumentation can be altered, for example, using jazz violin or trumpet for a different flavor. 

The Cobblestone Quartet is well known in the area for their smooth and polished sound. Their unobtrusive music provides soft, but toe tapping, jazzy background music with the flavor of Charleston. They are the perfect touch for a Charleston or Kiawah corporate event, wedding rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour, or an upscale wedding reception.

The ambience created by their music will help to ensure that everyone enjoys themselves at your event. Guests of all ages and backgrounds will hear tunes that they recognize and you will get tons of compliments on your choice of entertainment. They love to make the event planner look good!

We recommend having the full quartet whenever possible, but trimmed down versions of the group can easily be arranged to suit smaller spaces and budgets. The Cobblestone Quartet will vary their attire, sound, and repertoire to perfectly compliment everything from a Southern BBQ, to a nice casual cocktail party, to a black tie dinner. You should hire them.

Solo Guitar is a popular option with a smaller footprint as well as cost. The group leader, guitarist David Archer, uses the latest looping technology to simulate the sound of the full group. Many different styles of music are available. More details are available at this link: Solo Guitar

Hey David,

I just wanted to follow-up and thank you and your Cobblestone Group for doing an awesome job on Monday. The jazz was PERFECT, and our entire team (hosts and guests alike) was delighted with the evening’s event.

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect set-up – between the venue, the weather, the food and entertainment (kudos to the three of you) – we really showcased South Carolina well! I hope your dinner was delicious as well – my apologies that it wasn’t provided earlier.

I enjoyed working with you and hope to have the opportunity again soon.

Take care,

Alex Clark
