In celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month, the South Carolina State Museum Foundation will present Shuck n’ Swing, an outdoor concert and oyster roast April 2 from 6- 9 pm.

The ticketed fundraiser aims to support educational programming at the museum by providing an event filled with shellfish and tunes.

“Through on-site field trips and virtual learning, the museum reaches classrooms across the state with experiences designed to inspire and engage students,” said Karen Hall, South Carolina State Museum Foundation Director. “Proceeds from this event will help support these important educational programs so the museum can continue to serve as a vital resource to South Carolina educators.”

Tickets, now available at the museum or online at, include event admission, two drink vouchers and all-you-can-eat steamed oysters provided by The Oyster Bar. Guests will also be able to dine on an assortment of delicious non-seafood dishes, including a mashed potato bar, grilled pork & chicken, various desserts and more by Anna Cline Catering. Additional beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at the bar.

Be sure to save room to dance as the night will feature live jazz music by the Soda City Brass Band and a performance from Jim Graddick’s Bluegrass Trio.

Single tickets are $65 for the general public, $55 for members. Couples tickets are $120 for the general public, $100 for members. Outdoor seating will be spread out to allow for social distancing.

The event will be held outside with the museum closed to entry. Should there be poor weather, the event will move to an alternate location inside the museum.
