SPECIAL NOTE: We do not keep current reviews, videos and regular updates here on this Gigmasters page. For all current information, please go to our WeddingWire page, at "/bullcitysyndicate"

Bull City Syndicate is not just another cliché wedding band. This is a real "Horn Band," which can deliver a full night of Hits from the 60's, 70's. 80's, 90's and today. Bruno Mars to Earth Wind & Fire, Beyonce' to Chicago, Maroon 5 to Tower of Power, Lady Gaga to Sinatra - all at the highest level of quality and musicianship. With literally hundreds of songs in their repertoire, BCS will work with you to tailor the show to your needs and expectations.

Bull City Syndicate has been building a loyal and ever-growing following for over 20 years - recently featured as the headlining entertainment for the last two North Carolina Governor's Inaugural Balls - and has also performed throughout the Mid-Atlantic at music festivals, colleges, top-shelf weddings, corporate events, and national charity galas.

It will be worth your effort to check out why Bull City Syndicate is more than just a cliché wedding band, why they are one of the most in-demand bands in the region, and why the crowds at their public appearances are always filled with musicians from other bands.

Additionally, Bull City Syndicate can offer classical music for your ceremony, jazz for your cocktail hour, and a DJ for breaks and transitions. The musical possibilities are nearly endless.

Finally, BCS is available in its classic 10-piece line-up, or as a smaller, 6-piece unit. Professionally managed and represented, please give them a call, today, to discuss details, options and pricing for your next event.

Don't forget to check out the reviews on their Wedding Wire page. Here's a sampling:

"Steve and Bull City Syndicate made sure we all had a great time at my wedding this summer. They exceeded every expectation in professionalism and responsiveness. That's not something one should take for granted during wedding planning or even the event itself. What set the band apart, for me, and created such a memorable experience was a surprise dedicated song in my favorite style of music. Little things like that make for a next level experience and that's why I'd eagerly recommend Bull City Syndicate to my friends and family."

"After researching multiple bands for our May wedding we decided to go with BCS based on their amazing reviews online, and boy did they not disappoint! Steve was great to work with throughout the whole process, taking the time to put together an awesome playlist that had the dance floor packed all night long! I can't even begin to count the number of compliments we heard (and are still hearing) from our guests! Bull City Syndicate was truly the life of the party! You will not regret hiring them for your next event."

"Throughout the year or so that we spent planning our wedding Steve was always available for quick discussions and ideas about their performance. On the day of the wedding the music was phenomenal. People kept telling us that they had never been to a reception where the dance floor was so packed and energetic throughout the entire night. I myself and my wife hardly left the dance floor except for the obligatory mingling with our guests. They truly know how to read a crowd and are able to flow from song to song in a way that keeps everyone engaged and happy to dance endlessly. My wife and I are so happy that we went with BCS and couldn't imagine choosing anyone else in hindsight. If you are looking for a band that will make any event fun and exciting, you need look no further."

"Bull City Syndicate did an EXCEPTIONAL job at our wedding on October 14, 2017. They were so easy to work with and they played every song I requested live during the ceremony perfectly! I couldn't recommend them enough!"

"Bull City Syndicate played for my daughters wedding and did a fantastic job. One person after another at the reception told me how awesome the band was. I'm still hearing great feedback a month later. I've worked with them in the past and will again a month from now for a future event. If you need a band that can deliver, Bull City Syndicate is the band!"

"BCS played for my wedding reception, and as the Bride one the most important aspects of my reception was that it was a huge party with non stop dancing and I can say hands down that BCS rocked the house!!!! No one left the dance floor let alone the SIDES of the dance floor!! Everyone was dancing! From the horns, to the vocals, to the overall performance and song choice BCS absolutely blew it out of the water and made my reception exceptional! They even stayed an extra 30 minutes after my new husband and I left to keep the party going! You guys were AMAZING! Thank you so much for such a fun night!!!"

Bull City was wonderful, but probably more powerful a sound than we needed for that particular venue and for what we were trying to accomplish. I had their stage located in the central area of the ballroom which made it difficult to hear in our Bachelor Playground set up adjacent to the stage....MY FAULT! I probably spent too much of our funds for such a premium band, considering our bachelor auction took longer than expected, preventing Bull City from playing as much as I would have liked. ...again, MY FAULT! Bull City has an amazing sound; they are simply a fabulous band! Sincerely, Deborah Meehan President, Board of Directors, WCWC.org

They were a fantastic band and the guests at my wedding had a wonderful time. They even ran the sound for the ceremony which was a last minute need. Everyone in the band was extremely nice and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a band. The manager was always in constant contact with me to make sure all our needs were being met.

Soul Kitchen was everything I had hoped for and more. The crowd was energized and danced the entire night. They accommodated my special request for a song for my wife and invited her and her friend on stage to sing with the band which was the highlight of the evening. I heard comments the entire night of how incredible the band was and how in the world I found them. The other great comments I got were that not only did they sound incredible but they were really into it and seemed like really nice guys as well. The Chicago and Earth, Wind&Fire stuff was as good (if not better) then the real thing. The musicianship and vocals were truly world class. As I was planning this party for my wife my top priority was having an incredible band and they promised me I wouldn't be disappointed and they were so right. It was a night none of us will forget and I have Soul Kitchen to thank for makling it so memorable. My wife wants to go ahead and put in a booking request for my daughter's future wedding with them already (She is only 11) - so I hope the guys are still together - we're counting on it! Please have anyone interested in hiring this band contact me if they want a recommendation. They may cost a little more than the average band but you get what you pay for and so much more with Soul Kitchen.
