About Soulsystem Orchestras

New York City-based Soulsystem Orchestras can bring the rock to your wedding music. This multi-band group was founded in 1997 by Rob Affuso, the former drummer of heavy metal band, Skid Row. The bands define themselves as being "elegantly hip". Since heavy metal isn't exactly the first style of music that comes to most couples' minds for their special day, Soulsystem has an impressive roster of jazz, swing, hip-hop, R&B, and of course, rock songs.

Services Offered
Couples can choose from five different bands- Soulsystem, About Rhythm, Soul Society, Uptown, and Shakin' Not Stirred. No matter which you choose, you'll be listening to their love notes all night long. Services include:

  • DJ
  • Willing to learn new songs
  • Sound/PA system
  • Sample music
  • Ceremony and cocktail ensembles

    Unforgettable

    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 is simple NOT A BETTER BAND in existence. We've used them for two weddings, and hope we can have them perform for us again in the future!

    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 the musicians in awe. I heard so many times from my guests during the night, the phrase, "Holy Shit - they are UNBELIEVEABLE!" Everyone who attended my older daughter's wedding 5 years ago asked us, "Are you having that GREAT band again?" Rob is a dream to work with - my daughter requested a few songs not in their playbook, and they learned them for the wedding performance. Even the string quartet in the chapel learned a new song for the bride and groom exit - "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns and Roses. It was gorgeous on strings! The Orchestra ends the night with a "bring down the house" song. Guests to this day continue to talk about how awesome it is. Again, If you want to throw THE BEST wedding that your guests will EVER go to, Book Soulsystem Orchestra!

    Out of this world tunes/energy

    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 keep them engaged!!

    The first thing that every attendee said to us throughout the night and after was that they couldn't believe how incredible the band was and that SoulSystem was the best live band they had ever seen. Our only regret is that we cannot relive the night of fun and dancing over and over again. Massive thank you to SoulSystem Orchestras - true rock stars. You made our day so special.
