New York City-based Soulsystem Orchestras can bring the rock to any wedding. 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 services are chosen, they'll be listening to their love notes all night long. The team comes prepared with a top-quality sound and PA system so every little beat can be heard. They are open to learning new songs and perform the couple's favorite pieces throughout the ceremony and reception of their special day.

    Absolutely Incredible!!

    Words escape me to describe the incredible experience that Soulsystem Orchestras provided for everyone at our daughter's wedding. The level of talent, dedication and showmanship that this band displayed at our event was beyond anything we have ever experienced, and we've been to more than a few weddings in our life! All of our guests couldn't stop talking about the music and there was good reason. Rob was incredibly responsive and proactive from day one to our daughter and fiancé's musical preferences and tailored a musical event that no one will soon forget. Feedback: "best wedding ever", "I didn't know I was going to a concert", "I've never seen a band like that, ever". The depth of musical genres that Soulsystem Orchestras is able to mine and deliver flawlessly is literally breathtaking - everyone was in awe. A craft beer commercial once said "don't drink lite beer - eat less chips". Our advice would be if you're on a budget, skip the premium bar package, get a few less flowers, and get Soulsystem Orchestras, because it will change your wedding from "just another wedding" into something everyone will remember for a very long time. Thanks to Rob and everyone at Soulsystem Orchestras for making our daughter's wedding a night of enchantment.

    Outstanding Band

    Amazing! Rob and Soulsystem Orchestra are incredibly talented musicians. The entire experience, from the initial inquiry to the night of the wedding , was seamless. Due to the pandemic, the wedding date and venue had to change several times. Rob was gracious, understanding and upfront navigating through all of the changes. The music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception was phenomenal. EVERYONE, from age 16 to 90, raved about the music! ("This is the best band I've ever heard!"; "I feel like I'm at a concert."; etc.) Rob and Soulsystem Orchestra helped create an unforgettable event. Thank you for helping make my daughter and son-in-law's dream come true. It was truly an enchanted evening.

    Outstanding sounds and memories

    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.

    Soulsystem Orchestras's reply:

    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!
