BEST IS GUNPOWDER SOUP

 

GUNPOWDER SOUP is one-of-a-kind, reputable, professional cover band in Texas, playing a variety of cover songs for weddings, corporate events, conventions, fundraisers, parties, and large 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 for the event.

GUNPOWDER SOUP has been in the wedding and corporate business since 1999, therefore, we know how to make your event special.  And, we have won numerous awards from The Knot and Wedding Wire for outstanding service in the wedding industry.

 

COUNTRY, 80s, DISCO, BALLADS, POP HITS

The Band employees three lead vocalists who specialize in different genres of music such as Top 40, Country, 80s, 70s, Oldies, Disco, and Latin.  We will duplicate your favorite songs, just like you remember.

Our country songs and vocals will sound country and our Disco and Top 40 will sound like they should.  Our 80s and Classic Rock music will rock.  Different singers and different instrumentation.

GUNPOWDER SOUP starts the dinner set with country and easy listening songs.  In the 2nd set, we play Disco, 80s, and sprinkle in Country songs.  For the 3rd set, the dance floor is packed because of major dance hits we play back-to-back.  Clients and guests can request songs and if we know the song, GUNPOWDER SOUP will play it!   If the event is a party without dinner or a “meet and greet” hour, we will start right away with our dance floor favorites.

 

ATTENTION TO DETAILS

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.  The Band will contact the venue, electrical coordinators, planners, and wedding planners for scheduling and logistics.  This professional cover band has an owner who run the organization like a business.  We do have a fun and friendly side!

“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

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.

GPS 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, 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.
