The best night of our lives

"Rob, we had a blast with you.... from the minute we met you, through all the planning and annoying questions I had, up until the wedding night. You are personable, professional, and absolutely hilarious. After the event, our Maitre d' came up to us and told us that Soulsystem was the best band that has EVER performed at The Palace!! We couldn't have asked for more and will always remember our wedding night as the best of our lives, thanks to Soulsystem!"

- Julie & Jason

Blown away! 

"Soulsystem Orchestras is no question the best wedding band I have ever seen. All of our guests were blown away by their energy and ability to keep everyone (of all ages) on the dance floor the entire night! We forgot to cut the cake because we couldn't find one bad song to take us out of the dance party. They were so easy to work with and I wish I could do it all over again. Thank you Soulsystem Orchestras for the best night of our lives!"

- Casey & Bryan

The customer service is OUTSTANDING and the entertainers, magicians, specialty characters, DJs - everyone -  have been TOP NOTCH every year! Rob, you are easy to work with, accommodating, and always professional. I wouldn't work with any other entertainment company. Soulsystem Orchestras is truly the best!"

Rob, you listen to our needs and have delivered way above our staff and guests expectations year after year. Even the guest of honor, Bill Clinton, commented on how great your music was! . . .

"There's nothing more stressful than planning a daughter's bat mitzvah.

Everything has to be perfect! Soulsystem Orchestras not only handled the DJ & MC, dancers, games, music and lighting but they helped advise on what would work best. They knew what I wanted and my daughter can't wait to use them for the second most stressful event — her wedding!"
