More than just a cliche' wedding band. No other band from the Mid-Atlantic region is as versatile, without compromising the quality of the musical performance. From jazz to funk, soul to rock, country to beach, classic rock to the latest hits, Bull City Syndicate has exactly what you need for your event: diversity, flexibility, versatility, and professionalism.

Featuring both male and female lead vocalists, and the Bull City Horns on their front line, Bull City Syndicate has been building a loyal and ever-growing following for almost 20 years - featured at music festivals, colleges, weddings, private and corporate parties, as well as many local and national charity events. Recent top-shelf events include the honor of being the headline entertainment for the 2013 NC Governor's Inaugural Ball.

It will be worth your effort to see why Bull City Syndicate is one of the most in-demand and talented collection of musicians in the Mid-Atlantic region, and why their collective and individual resumes include appearances with Kool & The Gang, Eddie Money, Frankie Valli, Tone Loc, Mother's Finest, Trisha Yearwood, Amy Grant, Vince Gill, Maceo Parker, and many more!

SPECIAL NOTE: Bull City Syndicate offers not only their renowned 9-piece powerhouse band, but also a smaller, 6-piece version (BCS Express) for smaller settings or events on a more limited budget. Additionally, BCS can ramp it up the other direction, as well, with a full front line of dancers, string section, and speciality entertainers to enhance the show for larger corporate and specialty events.

Bull City Syndicate can further enhance your event by offering a full set of jazz classics in a more intimate combo style, or with classic Big Band arrangements during your event's dinner/cocktail hour - or, you can hire the smaller jazz combo separately from the full band. These great musicians can also provide music for wedding ceremonies - from classical guitar to trumpet processionals!

Finally, BCS will DJ any and all breaks at your event -- so there's no special request that can't be covered to keep your guests dancing all night long!

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.
