Ear for Music did a phenomenal job for my bride and groom's wedding at Founders hall!  From the very beginning, they were a joy to work with and Erika was quick to respond to every call and email!  We adored DJ rDOT!  He did a wonderful job at the ceremony and was very professional and kind.  He brought the house down at the reception and everyone was on that dance floor!  He does a great job knowing what the guests want!  I strongly recommend EFM.  You won't be sorry!!

Peace, Love, and The Dubplates at Party at The Point, July 8th

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
— Bob Marley

So, you bring the people and we will bring the love and the reggae with The Dubplates this Friday, July 8th at 5:30pm at Party at the Point. The Dubplates, a reggae/dancehall riddim band born and raised in Charleston, draws much of its identity from the diversity of both its members and its fanbase. Performing with anywhere between seven and ten members, the Dubplates are a combination of traditional Jamaican Patwah and Lowcountry pride. Charleston native Dave "Big Hair" Brisacher started the band with his business partner "Daddy" Brady Waggoner back in 2002 as Dub Island Sound System. Somewhere between 2007 and 2008, the band brought in a full horn section, a few more vocalists and percussionists, and became the Dubplates. So, tell the boss you have to leave work early, grab a refreshing drink, and come get whisked away with us this Friday on a sandy beach overlooking the Charleston horizon during a crimson sunset, and dance the night away with The Dubplates at Party at the Point. 

Don’t forget to join us for our encore Party at the Point with Sgt. Submarine next Friday, July 15th at 5:30pm. You will not want to miss this one of a kind tribute to The Beatles!

Party at the Point takes place at the scenic Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina, 20 Patriots Point Road, Mt.
