TESTIMONIALS

 
 

Far exceeded all of our expectations.

 

"We cannot thank you enough for the performance at our wedding on Saturday! You guys far exceeded all of our expectations and we were blown away. I can't tell you how many people came up to us during and afterwards and said that you were the best band they had ever heard.  You guys made the night so special and amazing and we could not be happier. You had so much energy and were able to involve all age groups that were in attendance. Thank you again for making the night so memorable!"  - Rachel & John
 
 

The absolute best!

"Honestly, I can't say enough about Soulsystem Orchestras! They are the absolute best, no question. From the moment I booked with Rob he was pleasant and fun to work with. The night of the wedding, the band did not disappoint. They kept the dance floor packed and the party atmosphere going all night. From Motown, to classic rock, to current pop music, they nailed it. They are professional, well rehearsed, entertaining, and the life of the party! I can't imagine what my wedding would have been like without them. Looking back, no one cares about anything as much as how much fun they had. Soulsystem Orchestras made sure that every guest at our wedding had a blast. They are worth every penny and at least ten times more than that!"  - Lauren

 
 

You will not want to get off the dance floor.

"A 5-star rating does not give this band enough credit. Soulsystem Orchestras made our wedding! Having a top-notch band was always a priority for our wedding and these guys exceeded every expectation we had. My husband and I have lost count of how many guests reached out during and after the wedding to praise the band.

"Rob and his team played all of our must-play songs while feeling out the crowd for their song choices. The only negative is that you will not want to get off the dance floor and may neglect some guests. We spent almost the entire night dancing and probably not enough time making rounds table to table. Dance floor was full until the very end so they played a few encore songs. We also used them for the ceremony and cocktail hour and the music was beautiful. Also think they're a great value. You absolutely cannot go wrong."  - Anna
 
 

Amazing musicians with so much talent and energy.

"I can't say enough about the awesomeness of Soulsystem. I was lucky enough to see these guys in action for my brother's wedding a few years ago and the experience for own wedding was nothing short of amazing. If you're fortunate enough to invest in a quality band then I would highly, highly recommend speaking with Rob and his team. The process was seamless and the outcome was perfect. Amazing musicians with so much talent and energy. The right band can make your wedding and that is exactly what Soulsystem did. Thank you again Rob and Team for a ridiculous party."  - Geoffrey
 
 

The perfect soundtrack for our wedding day.

"Thank you again for putting together the perfect soundtrack (and dance track) for our wedding day.  From the ceremony music to the wedding reception you guys could not have set the mood better for that particular moment. Frankly, all anyone wanted to do after the wedding was talk about the band, which is remarkable because you had steep competition in Great Performances' food and the venue itself.  So bravo."  - Jeff & Elinor
 
 

The most fun night of my life!

"Soulsystem is worth every penny . . . we are almost 2 months out of our wedding day and people are still telling me how amazing they were!! Not only did they play amazing music all night long, but they were wonderful dance partners as well! Our family and friends never stopped dancing! I couldn't have asked for a better band - they truly made it the most fun night of my life!"  - Mia
 
 

Made our wedding day.

"Rob and the Soulsystem team made our wedding day. If a good band is important to you (for us, a good band was more important than the food, the wine, the cake, etc.), you absolutely should book Soulsystem Orchestras. In advance of our wedding day, we had several phone calls with Rob to discuss our vision for the night and the kind of music we like. Whenever we had follow up questions, he was more than happy to hop on the phone to discuss. Soulsystem can play anything from Guns N' Roses to Frank Sinatra to Beyonce. They have the ability to control the energy of a party down to a science. Above all else, Soulsystem Orchestras is incredibly talented. And so FUN! All of the musicians are into every song and some of the singers really engage the audience, will come into the audience, etc. Thank you, Rob and team, for such a fun night!"  - Olivia
 
 

Absolutely fantastic!

"We cannot thank you enough! Soulsystem, MC Ejai, the dancers, the games. the lighting . . . Jonathan’s Bar Mitzvah was absolutely fantastic thanks to you, your people and your commitment to detail! Rob, thank you for your patience in guiding us through what we thought would be a daunting task! You made it easy, fun and pleasurable. We are already counting (the years) until we can do it again with you for our daughter! " - Dana Blum
 
 

A moment I will never forget.

"INCREDIBLE! Soulsystem made our wedding a spectacular event! They blew away our expectations. Hearing a packed dance floor chant "One More Song!" at the end of the night will be a moment I will never forget. Thanks Rob and Soulsystem!"  - Erin & VIto
 
 

Soulful and funky

"A couple weeks after my wedding, people are STILL telling me how hot the band was. My husband is a musician, so we had to have a smokin' band. And he insisted that we have this band. And man, I was not disappointed. They sounded FANTASTIC. A full rock band with a horn section is the only way to go for a party this important, and they sounded so full and rich! The singers sang their faces off, and what is also important, which I didn't realize til the day of, was that they were full of terrific personality. They are a big part of your wedding, so you want them to be people you like! The band played every song we wanted, and even some I didn't realize we wanted, like they read my mind. They are so soulful and funky. Book them, they will make your event fantastic!"  - Anika
 
 

From the first song to the last song, the dance floor was packed.

"From the first song to the last song, our dance floor was packed and the energy in the room was so high. It was a pleasure to work with Rob leading up to the wedding. He gave us a lot of tips on song selection for the ceremony, cocktails and reception and helped us come up with a great agenda for the evening. He also made sure that the dance floor remained filled the entire time! We love Soulsystem so much and I can't wait to hear them again at my best friend's wedding in June. I would recommend this band to anyone who loves to dance, wants a high energy party, and wants to have their guests say "this is the best band I have ever heard" mid-party at your wedding. Thank you Soulsystem for making our wedding the best night of our lives!"  - Rachel & Corey
 
 

There is just no substitute for Soulsystem.

"To say that Soulsystem is the "Best Band Ever" is an understatement. They gave a truly spectacular performance by both the singers and the musicians. Many, many of our guests said "that was THE BEST band they had ever heard. Ever." There is just no substitute for Soulsystem. No one even comes close. Their singers are astounding and they match their vocals to the songs they are playing. A few of their singers could have successful solo careers of their own - that is how good they are. Their outfits (2 of them) were extremely tasteful and looked great. They also followed the script of the night perfectly. True professionalism at its best. Simply put, they rocked the house down and had our guests on their feet dancing the whole night. They also nailed the slow songs. Jaw-droppingly good. Just beyond unbelievable."  - Jackie
 
 

Not a create-a-playlist experience

"Given the hype surrounding them, we had high expectations when we booked Soulsystem, and they CRUSHED every single one of those expectations. They made our wedding spectacular! There wasn’t a single person (age 5 through 85!) who wasn’t on the dance floor at least 90% of the night. Every guest (seriously) said this was the best wedding band they’d ever heard play, and many even commented that the evening felt like a concert – we totally agree, but in no way felt like that overshadowed our special night. Soulsystem’s talent and energy couple perfectly with their sincerity and unobtrusiveness, and the whole magical package allows them to somehow walk a fine line between putting on a hell of a show while making the bride and groom the center of attention.

"Throughout the entire process, Rob was attentive, professional and fun. This was not a create-a-playlist experience. Rob had us rate a number of songs to gain an idea of our tastes and had us list a few “must-play” songs. With this approach, he was able to play great music we love while controlling the tempo of the evening. His lengthy experience with Skid Row & Soulsystem was clear to us and our guests, as each song blended into the next, perfectly complementing whatever was going on at the moment.

"We will post here what we have been telling all of our newly engaged friends: WE CANNOT RECOMMEND SOULSYSTEM HIGHLY ENOUGH! You can’t go wrong booking this band - they are the best you and your guests will ever experience."  - Rachel
 
 

They went the extra mile.

"First I must say that I am a professional trumpet player and have performed around the world for the past 30 years. I have played with numerous wedding bands throughout my career but none like Rob Affuso's Soulsystem. They went the extra mile. My wife, who performs on Broadway, created a one hour variety show where our friends performed with the band. The band nailed every tune and was incredibly prepared . . . and then funked out the rest of the evening. Soulsystem performed all genres from swing-rock to classic R/B . . . and beyond. What a great evening it was. I highly recommend them for any wedding."  - Fred

 
 

Everyone becomes part of the "experience".

"Soulsystem is not just a band reproducing artists songs. They are exceptional performers presenting a production in which guests become engaged and part of the "experience". Our guests ALL commented on how incredible Soulsystem was and that they made the event. They are an exceptional find and bring energy to any event. For personal or professional events, they are by far a solid choice to make the event memorable and successful in every way. Don't hesitate to consider them."  - Melissa
 
 
 

"Soulsystem is amazing! Thank you for making my birthday one for the books!"

- Julia Roberts
