  • There are many opportunities to make your wedding day memorable to you and all who attend. Your musical selection is by far one of the most impactful elements by which to put direct our budget, and likely what will make the moments and memories of your reception outstanding, or not. Soulsystem was by far the best choice to make the wedding not just music filled, but a vibe and energy that is rarely experienced. Many quests commented that they had never been to a wedding that when you turn around and looked, the tables were empty because everyone was on the dance floor. We had a blast, young and old alike. They had something for everyone and their performance exceptional. The only unhappy point was when the evening came to an end. The pictures and videos will forever be enjoyed and tell the whole story. Thanks Soulsystem.

    Thank YOU Melissa for your kind words We take pride in what we do so that we can make these moments and memories so very special for you and your family! Warmly, Rob and The SOULSYSTEM Team!

  • We could not have been happier with SOULSYSTEM. My husband and I (parents of the groom) have family in the music business and frequently hire bands for various functions. SOULSYSTEM blows away every other band -- both in how they sound (unbelievable talent) and in the professionalism they demonstrate. They spent time prior to the wedding talking to the bride and groom (and parents) to assure that the party had the music and vibe they wanted; they were at the venue with plenty of time to set up; they ran the reception beautifully; and the night was a huge success -- in large part because we had Rob and SOULSYSTEM.

    Thank you for your kind words Jen! What a fun night! Loved the "Flash Mob!" You and your family have always been great supporters of SOULSYSTEM for many years and you all hold a special place in our hearts! Rob and The SOULSYSTEM Team!

  • If you want your family and friends dancing all night...and you appreciate phenomenal music entertainment, look no further than Soul System. The way this band combines fresh crisp sound with their own interpretation of 100’s of songs through 40+ decades, leaves one with a jaw-dropping fascination and obsession with their talents and ability to entertain. They can do it all, and are willing to help make your wedding one to be remembered for years to come. Their sound, energy, professionalism, and commitment to their customers is like none other. They genuinely love making people happy, and the happier their customer is, the harder they play! Soul System performed at two of our daughters very different weddings, and so many of our guests have told us that those two weddings were the best ones they had ever been to. Soul System made two incredibly memorable dance parties for us....The only thing better would have been foot massage therapists at our ready, from the five straight hours o... Read more

  • Soulsystem is an amazing band for a wedding. We had them play for our oldest daughter 3 years ago, and for our youngest a week ago. Our guests did not want to leave the dance floor!! The more Soulsystem played, the more energy on the dance floor. They added another dimension to a magical event!! I highly recommend them.

  • One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was choosing Soulsystem Orchestras as our band. Rob is incredible to work with and totally understood the vibe that my husband and I wanted, from Frank Sinatra for our first dance, to my request to hear newer song renditions like Higher Love! From the communication leading up to the wedding, to the execution day of, our friends and family could not stop raving about the experience (and it took a while to get everyone to leave including a "one more song" chant, multiple times!) Soulsystem is professional, thoughtful and truly brought the WOW factor to our wedding. My only regret is that we didn't have a longer reception! Throughout the wedding experience, I truly enjoyed working with Rob and felt like a "person" whereas other larger companies/vendors I hired made me feel like a number and straight up "client". We loved them so much, we are going to one of their public performances for a non-profit next week just so we can see them again!... Read more

  • Soulsystems will exceed your expectations times 10!! They are so professional, talented, and fun. Their musicians sound better than the original artists - it is unbelievable! Rob is wonderful to work with and I will always consider him a friend!

  • There are not adequate words describe how SoulSystem Orchestras rocked our wedding!! Rob is very pleasant, professional, organized and squares away details well in advance of the wedding. In dealing with him, it was clear that this band/band leader are experts as to all things wedding related and bring immense value with their knowledge of how to structure the ceremony and reception so that the day moves along smoothly/so that the fun and dancing is maximized. SoulSystem played at our ceremony (string quartet), cocktail hour, and reception. Our ceremony music was breathtakingly beautiful and the quartet even learned a more obscure song for me so that I could walk down the isle to my song of choice. As for the reception, we requested that it be a fun dance party and SoulSystem delivered!!! The very large dance floor was crammed with our 250+ guests (of all ages) dancing, jumping and signing along to SoulSystem's mind-blowing tunes. This band knows how to hype up a crowd and ke...

  • If you want to have THE BEST band in the WORLD (not just the country) at your wedding, then you should book Soulsystem Orchestra ASAP! They performed at my older daughter's wedding 5 years ago, and the first call that I made when my younger daughter got engaged, was to Rob Affuso to book them again. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this group of talented musicians. They will MAKE your wedding. The band is the most important aspect of the reception and they come to have everyone PARTY. They play jazz for the cocktail hour, standards while everyone is eating, and then the dancing shoes come out! They literally sound exactly like the original artists. Some bands do a poor imitation, but not Soulsystem - they are fantastic. They have a "Rock and Roll Specialist" who my kids insisted on including. It was well worth it - you'd have thought that Bruce Springsteen himself was playing for us. Everyone was dancing the entire night - and those that couldn't were watching th... Read more

    Thank you for all of this AMAZING LOVE Janel!! What an incredibly special event you and Joe hosted for your daughters wedding! It certainly was a "ROCK-N-ROLL" spectacular to say the least! We are "making memories" for a friend of yours this weekend who was also at your party! Time to do it again and look forward to seeing you all once again! Rob and The SOULSYSTEM Team!

  • Hands down and by far and away the BEST wedding band out there. We had previously heard Soulsystem at a friends wedding - and as soon as we got engaged we immediately booked them for ours. They keep everyone (from grandmas to teenagers) on the dancefloor all night and it made our wedding celebration what it was - everyone commented on how good this band was and how epic our dance party was. We couldn't speak higher of their energy, talent, or professionalism. It was truly a pleasure to work with them!!

  • Absolutely the most outstanding musicians and truly made our dreams come true. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire evening and we have had the pleasure of hiring SoulSystems for major occasions including weddings and birthday celebrations of importance. The experience each time is a 10 out of 10. Professional, caring, genuinely dedicated to insuring that the event is the most spectacular event. We know that everyone who reviews this review and uses Soulsystem will experience the exact same incredible music and joy that we did. The best part is that they are flexible and can appeal to all types of music interests which is often rare. Bravo to the best!

    Thank you for your kind words Marilyn!~ It is an honor and a privilege to have once again been chosen to provide the entertainment for one of your families milestone events. Nicole, Connor, you and Piero truly have a special place in our collective SOULSYSTEM hearts! See you on the dance floor somewhere soon! Rob and The SOULSYSTEM Team!

  • SoulSystem Orchestras exceeded my expectations! The band offers a diverse playlist and works with you throughout the process to ensure the genre of music played at your wedding reception fits you and the audience. They even learned a couple new songs for our first dance and mother/son dance, which was unique. They are extremely talented and inspired guests of all ages to join the dance floor (even those who are not dancers!). We cannot thank them enough for being a part of our special day. You know you partnered with the best band when your family and friends continue to rave about their music weeks following the wedding!

  • Soulsystem was incredible! They brought so much energy and joy to the reception. All of our guests were raving about how great the band was—in fact, so many people told us that the band was the best band they ever heard at a wedding. We agree! The dance floor was full the entire night and the music choices were just perfect. Rob and Soulsystem also put together the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour and both were just as spectacular as the reception. Rob was so great to work with and joyfully accommodated all of our special requests. It was a great experience working with him at every stage. We recommend soulsystem enthusiastically and unconditionally!

  • I can't even describe how AWESOME this band was. They are unbelievably talented musicians and singers and they got in with the crowd and engaged them. They had everyone dancing and having fun. Many of my wedding guests said they're the best wedding band they've ever heard--and a few of my friends asked for their number to hire them for their own weddings! They made the party and we couldn't be happier. PS they do an incredible raucous hora! (Rob was also a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process and he was able to have the band play a few songs the we requested specially!)
