This high energy band will start the party as soon as we arrive on stage and get your guests on the dance floor right away.  Most important, we monitor the dancer’s preferences and change song selection in order to keep people singing and dancing the entire time.  Guests are welcome to make requests and most songs are performed back to back without interruption.  Because Gunpowder Soup has been in the wedding and corporate business for several years, we know how to make your event special.

Sometimes the Band will be hired for a public show or fundraiser and that information can be found on our Gunpowder Soup’s Facebook Page.

Cover Band For Galas

“I was looking for a well rounded band that played both great dance and country music for our daughter’s wedding. I found Gunpowder Soup on the internet and really liked their style, look and song choices posted on their website. It felt a bit risky for such an important event, never hearing them, but after talking to Jeanine, i was satisfied with her responses and the fair pricing. I was confident it was a good choice. However, it was a GREAT choice! The band was energetic, fun, professional, extremely talented, kept the dance floor full all night and made a wonderful wedding reception even better! We received comments all evening about the quality of the band and i’m sure we will hear it for a very long time! Thank you Jeanine, Marius and the rest of the band, you made it a fabulous party!!”

“AMAZING wedding band. I recently got married in downtown Austin at an upscale venue, and I’ll admit I had pretty high expectations for a band. My husband and I wanted our reception to be a GREAT party. We booked GPS based on online reviews and YouTube videos, without having seen them live. We absolutely made the right call. They kept the crowd on the dance floor and people were energized all evening. We got compliment after compliment on their ability and energy. I would absolutely book them again!”

“If you are looking for a FANTASTIC PARTY BAND for a wedding or event, look no further — GUNPOWDER SOUP IS IT!!! My husband and I hired GPS for our daughter’s wedding in College Station, Texas on 2/22/20 and we were absolutely BLOWN AWAY! We contracted with them to provide every service they offered — from the wedding music, MC option, and of course, reception ENTERTAINMENT — and we could not be happier customers! Our daughter and new son-in-law — and over 150 guests — had to be pulled off the dance floor at the end of the night as one song was as FUN as the next! From the initial contact with Jeanine last January to the follow-up after the wedding, the whole process was extremely PROFESSIONAL and E-A-S-Y! We truly cannot say enough good things about GPS and will forever be thankful that they were a part of our special evening!”

For the show, Gunpowder Soup will start out with country and wedding favorites like Sweet Caroline, Crazy, or My Girl.  Then we morph into 80s, line dance, and sing along songs like Friends In Low Places and Take Me Home Country Roads.   The last set is dance favorites like Play That Funky Music, Kiss, and You Shook Me All Night.

Guests want to dance the two step and line dance to Boot Scootin’ Boogie and Copperhead Road.  Ask about line dance instructions, we will teach you!

Gunpowder Soup specializes in weddings and creating fun for wedding customs and special dances.   Our professional team can also perform for your ceremony.


“The band was absolutely amazing!!! They were hired for our corporate event in Austin and everyone loved them.They played to the crowd and were very accommodating when we asked to extend over our contract! They know exactly how to engage an audience because everyone was up on their feet dancing and singing! If you need a well rounded, versatile, entertaining band this is a great choice.”
