GUNPOWDER SOUP has been in business since 1999, therefore, WE ARE definitely doing something right!

We specialize in high end galas, weddings, fundraisers, conventions, and corporate events.  When you hire GUNPOWDER SOUP, you receive more than the fantastic performance.  There is planning with the event or wedding planner, itinerary scheduling, numerous emails back and forth, you have control over the songs we perform, and we acquire logistics and electricity requirements from venues before we arrive.  You receive a lot of service when you book with us!

Call or email before your date is booked.  Some clients have changed their date because GUNPOWDER SOUP was booked for another event, but if you cannot change your date, prep early and contact us!

There is only ONE GUNPOWDER SOUP!   We are an unique band able to perform country and rock/pop songs with 3 lead vocalist and multi talented musicians.

Credentials

Marius and Jeanine are building a new “state of the art” recording studio and own/manage 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 Engineer from The University of Texas.  Jeanine Davis-Perron (owner) has a BS degree in Hospital Administration and team members have a BA degree in Music Education.

Performance

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 22 years later.

Our Business Model

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.

Instrumentation

Drums, bass, electric guitar, trombone, 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.
