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 specialize in galas, weddings, fundraisers, conventions, and corporate events. When you hire GUNPOWDER SOUP, you receive a fantastic performance, experience handling itineraries, 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. Our specialty, from client's reviews, is how well we sing and play country music and one hour later, we rock the dance floor with 80s and top dance hits. YOU PICK the songs and the dancers let us know what they want to hear! Will your choice be all pop and rock? 80s and County? 70s and 80s? All Country? YOU decide!
We are not a franchise or part of a conglomeration of musicians filling positions. What you see on our website is what you will receive on stage.
Make live music a priority at your event and make 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, audio-eng.com
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.
GPS BUSINESS MODEL
