Gunpowder Soup Band set a fun vibe throughout the evening. SO MANY good things to say! They have an impressive long song list. Everyone raved about how great they were and how fun the music selection was. Everything went off without a hitch and they perfectly nailed doing a seamless mix of country, line dance, Latin, disco, 80s and oldies. We got so many compliments from our guests who enjoyed their performance. We wanted a great band and y’all delivered!

A conflict came up that forced me to cancel our contract with Gunpowder Soup for our upcoming event and I must say that Jeanine Perron was the most professional, fair and understanding person I have dealt with for many years! She was so understanding and helped me with the cancellation to assure me that all will be ok! I will hire this band for any future event we may have. Great group with great people!

Great band for a non-profit fundraising event. They were a real crowd pleaser.

Gunpowder Soup was the best decision that we made for our wedding! They are so personable and down to earth and they go out of their way to make your wedding night memorable and FUN! We have received so many compliments from wedding guests in regards to how awesome GPS is. We will be using them for any event in the future that we can because they’re that amazing! Thank you Gunpowder Soup!

I had Gun Powder Soup for my wedding in Odessa, TX 2yrs ago and let me tell you they put on a show! It still comes up to this day! Singing along with the everybody on the dance floor rocking out and playing a wide variety of music from country to classic rock and wedding classics! Even some Selena to get our cumbia on!! We had a wedding around 400 people young and older and a lot of our family is involved in the music and event industry and they were obsessed with how good they sounded and played. 10/10 would love to have at our next family wedding 😉

Gunpowder Soup is a fantasic band. I've seen them perform 3 different times at public events. The lead singer is a great singer, performer & she really get into the songs. The drummer really rocks it all night & she directs the show. The bass guitarist mingles with the audience & engages them to sing along. They have a wide range of songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s & country. They are a very entertaining band that does a great job of contecting with the audience. Definitely would book them for a wedding or other event.

We hired Gunpowder soup for our parents 50th wedding anniversary. They did an outstanding job! Easy to work with during the entire process. Everyone was dancing all night and the guest of honor even helped sing a few songs. I highly recommend them for your next party.

Such a fantastic band!! You just can't ask for a more professional group of people and it is obvious how much they care about what they do. Gunpowder has it down and did a fantastic job at our wedding! I knew from the first moment that they were the band for us and now we have the best memories of our special day! They will engage your crowd no matter the audience and keep the night pumping! Thanks again for being a part of our wedding!!

Hiring Gunpowder Soup is seriously the best decision we made for our wedding. They had the crowd cheering for an encore after they finished their set! It’s been almost a month since the wedding and people are still coming up to me raving about the band. Couldn’t recommend them enough!!

Gunpowder Soup Band brought the party! Gunpowder Soup played at my daughter’s wedding this past weekend. They played all the best songs and they have extremely talented musicians! They also get the crowd involved. The entire wedding was dancing and had so much fun!! We were so sad when they told us it was the last song- it was still very crowded on the dance floor. Everyone at our wedding asked where we found this awesome band. My daughter was the one who found the band saying that it is always more fun to have live music - she was right! If you want to make your wedding or birthday celebration or other event exceptional, you absolutely NEED to book this band!! They were worth every dollar spent! I have not had so much fun on an evening out in such a long time!
