best Live San Antonio Band - Gunpowder Soup


Gunpowder Soup is a premier variety band that entertains your guests with great vocals, stage performance, and LED light show.  We will create a party on the dance floor and surrounding tables by engaging with guests off stage for group singing and dancing.  Gunpowder Soup will have your guests bragging about the fun they had at your event!


“We recently had Gunpowder Soup play at our wedding, and they MADE THE NIGHT!!!  Everyone was dancing the entire night, even at the beginning of dinner!  Right from the first song they started playing, people were out of their seats dancing.  Our guests were chanting “one more song” over and over when Gunpowder Soup announced for everyone to line up for the send-off.  They made everyone sing in a microphone around the crowd and had people who don’t usually dance sore the next day from dancing so much! Highly highly highly recommend this band.  They play everything- from country to popular oldies and new, current songs! You can’t go wrong with them.”

Austin Wedding bands

“Gunpowder Soup was the feature performance at our Point S Tire & Auto annual business meeting in San Antonio. Performing to a room of 500 guests, they had so much energy and were excited to engage with the audience – cannot say that about every band. Pretty cool to see a band of five include two ladies. All of the band members are multi-talented; singing, playing instruments and dancing! They The guitarist worked the room, physically moving with guitar and microphone around the room, to encourage audience members to sing along with the band. The songs they chose were great; a variety of genres that all of our audience members enjoyed (some children and younger adults; mainly adults 35-65). We will absolutely consider having them come to future events as long as budget allows.”
Candice B – Point S Tire Inc.

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.

For corporate events, out-of-state guests want to dance the two step, learn how to 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.

Fun Austin Variety Band

“I was looking for a band to play at our fundraiser. I looked at about 12 different bands online and went to see 3 of them perform and Gunpowder Soup was at the top of the list. They are very professional and excellent musicians and they really get the guests engaged. I had so many compliments about their performance. We will definitely look to use them in the future.”
