Professional Business Model with Party Attitude  

Why do we have ALL 5 star reviews?  Why do we see so many familiar faces on the dance floor?  Why do venues and planners suggest GUNPOWDER SOUP for entertainment?   Everyone knows live music is just better.

GUNPOWDER SOUP has been in business since 1999, therefore, we are definitely doing something right.  We only perform for hired events such as wedding, corporate events, and galas.  When you hire GUNPOWDER SOUP, you receive a fantastic performance and stressless planning. 

Our management team will work with you to plan the perfect flow for weddings and After Party dance for corporate.  Your guests will be entertained and the dance floor will stay packed for the entire event.  You pick the songs!  Will your choice be all pop and rock?  80s and County?  70s and 80s?  All Country?  You decide!  Our manager will also pick songs that we know will be a dance floor magnet!!

We are not a franchise or part of a conglomeration of musicians filling positions.  This band is composed of the same 5 musicians and some of our standby musicians are hired by special request from the client.   Request our horn players!

Make live music a priority and create memories with this fun cover band!

Marius and Jeanine are building a new “state of the art” recording studio and run a school, Audio Enginearing Institute, teaching audio engineering classes,

Our gear has been assembled by our GRAMMY Award Winning Recording Engineer, Marius Perron, who has a MS in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas. Jeanine Davis-Perron (owner) has a BS degree in Hospital Administration and stock trades during the week.



For cocktail hour, we play MP3 music from our stage speakers, unless you hire an acoustic musician from our staff. During dinner, the Band will play low volume and slow to mid-tempo songs to accommodate conversations

After formalities, we will fill the dance floor with dancers, interact with guests off-stage, enlist singers on our crowd microphone. GUNPOWDER SOUP started tambourines and crowd mics on the dance floor and we continue this client favorite.



We have been engaging with guests since 1999 and are experts in the entertainment business. Detailed local female management and an A+ from the Better Business Bureau set us apart from other bands. Clients call and book directly through our Contact page and we generate our own contracts.

Important: GUNPOWDER SOUP carries general liability insurance for venues that require a one million dollar policy. The owner is always on site and manages the Band during the event.



Drums, Bass, Electric Lead Guitar, Piano, Synthesizer, Acoustic Guitar, and Horn (s) (depending on service)

If you want to hire a two or three piece horn section, email for availability.  You will love our variety of lead vocalists and wall of harmonies. Our musicians are multi-talented on different instruments so we have a full sound depending on the instrumentation of each song.
