PERFORMANCEFor 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 22 years later.
GPS BUSINESS MODELWe 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.
INSTRUMENTATIONDrums, bass, electric guitar, piano, keyboards, acoustic guitars (2). If you want to hire a two or three piece horn section, let us know! You will love the variety of three different 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.
