Bull City Syndicate was first recommended to me by my friend/groomsman whom used to work with Steve (leader of the band) and told me that if I wanted an energetic band that would work closely with me to make the event exciting, then I need look no further. He was exactly right. After discussing the options with Steve we opted to go with the 7 piece band over the 10 piece, mainly due to the size of our venue. Steve pretty much told me from the beginning that if there was any song that I specifically wanted for the reception he would provide it. Throughout the year or so that we spent planning our wedding steve was always available for quick discussions and ideas about their performance. On the day of the wedding the music was phenomenal. People kept telling us that they had never been to a reception where the dance floor was so packed and energetic throughout the entire night. I myself and my wife hardly left the dance floor except for the obligatory mingling with our guests. They truly know how to read a crowd and are able to flow from song to song in a way that keeps everyone engaged and happy to dance endlessly. My wife and I are so happy that we went with BCS and couldn't imagine choosing anyone else in hindsight. If you are looking for a band that will make any event fun and exciting, you need look no further. Thank you again to Steve and the rest of the amazing band members for making our wedding so rememberable!Sent on 10/08/2015

Best Decision Ever!
Bull City Syndicate was everything that we wanted for our wedding. I had seen them at a previous wedding and knew that I just had to have them when our big day came. It was extremely important to us that guests would be able to dance the night away, and they did not disappoint!! Working with Steve was super easy, as he was extremely responsive and helpful leading up to the event. The set list was exactly what we wanted and the group really got the crowd moving and grooving all night long. Guests were commenting all night and for weeks after the event on how great the band was, and everyone stayed dancing until the very end of the night. Best wedding band ever!Sent on 07/01/2019

Rocked the House!
We can't praise BCS enough for the show they put on at our wedding reception in Smithfield NC. From the very beginning Steve was an absolute pleasure to work with. You'll be hard pressed to find a better sounding group who can perform so many songs.Sent on 11/14/2018
I wanted a Horn Band, but we got more than a Horn Band. We got a group of true professionals with a wide ranging sound who rocked the house! If you want everyone dancing, book BCS. No way you'll be disappointed.
Thanks BCS! We'll forever remember the best night of our lives!
Bull City Syndicate is an unusually versatile band, in that several of its members are trained in other musical disciplines - (besides great dance music!) - such as jazz and classical. We can offer a total package of both ceremony and reception music. For your Ceremony: -Trumpet processionals and recessionals -Classical guitar as guests are being seated. For your Cocktail Reception Hour: -Background jazz standards -Contemporary or Smooth jazz. MC and DJ service for breaks. All of this is INCLUDED in in almost every quote we make for your event. (Rare restrictions apply. Call to verify availability.)
We love this band! Steve Baker and his horn guys are amazing musicians through and through. Also, great people to work with!
For that wedding when budget doesn't matter and you HAVE to have "THE" band play for your reception, then look no further than Bull City Syndicate! Steve and the guys are great to work with, extremely professional and will wow your guests to no end.
Great band!! Great people, very easy to work with! Highly recommend them for your event!
