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.
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:

My advice would be to book Soulsystem as soon as you can. We visited showcase for many other bands and Soulsystem was head and shoulders above the rest. Rob was accommodating, responsive and overall a pleasure to deal with. He delivered on every promise and the vibe that the band set for our wedding was better than we could've ever imagined. This band is worth every penny and more. We literally received a dozen requests for the band's info after our reception and the dance floor was packed all night. Hats off to Soulsystem for a job well done.Sent on 08/09/2016

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!
