Premier Cover Band




GUNPOWDER SOUP is one-of-a-kind, reputable, professional country band in Texas, playing a variety of cover songs for weddings, corporate events, conventions, fundraisers, and galas.  Once we step on the stage, our aim is to kick off the party and get your guests on the dance floor right away. After performing for many years, we know which songs will flood the dance floor and which songs bring people to our crowd microphone. Most songs are performed back-to-back and clients have a choice in song selection. GUNPOWDER SOUP has been in the wedding and corporate business since 1999, therefore, we know how to make your event special.



The Band employees three lead vocalists who specialize in different genres of music such as Top 40, Country, 80s, 70s, Motown, Latin, and wedding dance favorites. Our country music and vocals will sound country, our 80's and Top 40 will sound pop, and our Classic Rock music will rock.  GUNPOWDER SOUP starts the set with country for grandparents and those who love Country music.  In the 2nd set, we start with 80s and sprinkle in country sing along songs.  For the 3rd set, major dance hits along with a rowdy country song or two.



In-ear monitors and talk-back mics are used to communicate between members on stage for song selection, walk-in/walk-off cues, emcee auctions closings, and change in schedule.  GUNPOWDER SOUP takes extra measures to ensure all the details are finalized before the band arrives at the venue.  Manager will contact the venue, electrical coordinators, planners, and wedding planners for scheduling and logistics.  This professional cover band has a manager/owner who runs the organization like a business.






We are a professional popular Texas variety band with great vocals, talented musicians, engaging performers, detailed management, and owners with an A+ from the BBB.  We received this rating from another one of our other businesses in the music industry.  There is a big reason why we have been around so long and it is because we are experts in entertainment and our business model is above other bands.

“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 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!

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!”

“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.”

“Gunpowder Soup was one of the best decisions we made about my daughters wedding. They were great at communicating and completely professional. They made the wedding reception so much fun from start to finish!

Everyone was on the dance floor the whole time. Their vibe kept everyone so pumped up. I felt like no one left the event early! Absolutely fantastic!”  Claudia T
