    Cool stumbled to a ragged halt

    Please,

    Given this sentence:

    The few musicians who were still playing stumbled to a ragged halt.

    My problem is this "stumble to"

    Is this sentence saying, as a whole, that the musicians stopped playing in a confused and uneven manner?

    Thank You for your assistance.

    Yes! That is exactly what the sentence means.
