About our music
Typically, we play from a set list of 120 songs. This includes ’60s, ’70s and ’80s rock ‘n’ roll, soul, blues, country, and pop — as well as popular shag music and beach standards. Upon request, the band will learn a couple of new tunes for the Bride or Groom, as long as we have enough time to add them to our repertoire.
What we offer
Parties and wedding receptions, along with a mixed bag of restaurant and bar gigs are where the “Shem Creek Boogie Band” lay down their tunes.
We provide complete entertainment when we show up. When the band takes a break DJ Magic Mike spins the latest Top 40 club dance tunes, ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s,and country tunes as well. We also can include line dances by request such as “The Wobble,” “Cupid Shuffle,” “The Wop,” “Electric Slide,” and “Mambo #5.” The DJ also has an excellent set full of “Michael Buble-type” reception primers to set the mood during everyone’s arrival and dinner. Just let us know your preferences and we’ll make sure your party is everything you always dreamed of.
“Well thank y’all! We had a blast, and our guests did as well! I can’t tell you how many times they told us that they had so much fun dancing at the wedding. Y’all did an amazing job, and I am so glad we used your band for our wedding. We couldn’t be happier! Thanks again!” — Chelsea Crumpler
“Hey John! I just wanted to thank you guys for playing at our wedding on July 2. The music was perfect! Everyone of all ages was able to enjoy the variety of music, and I know we all enjoyed dancing the night away. I also appreciate you all being so cooperative with all of our special requests, announcements, songs, etc. I couldn’t have asked for anything better! We truly enjoyed it, and I hope we get the opportunity to hear you guys play again. You will definitely have my recommendation if anyone I know is looking for a band.” — Diana and Kevin Guest

“Experienced the Shem Creek Boogie Band last night at with the Summerville Shag Club at the Summerville Shag Club. It took everything I had not to jump up there with them and sing back up. Hope they come back sooner than not.” — Betsi Green
