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!

The best wedding band (or any occasion band, for that matter) EVER!! They are seriously amazing! They were the best part of our wedding. They know exactly how to engage an audience. Everyone was up on their feet dancing! Even some of my guests who I thought I’d never see dancing!! Our wedding was almost a month ago and people are still talking about the band and how much fun they were. They also make an effort to make the bride and groom feel special all evening! They are great about following the timeline of events for the evening. I loved that they bring a microphone in to the audience to let guests sing. And the tambourines they pass out are so much fun! I highly recommend this band, I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else. 🙂

“⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Amazing!!! I had no choice but to select Gunpowder Soup for my wedding because my family had seen them at another San Antonio wedding and my dad was hooked. I was so excited they were not booked for my wedding weekend. Their song list is amazing and gets the whole crowd dancing. The band interacts with the crowd bringing mics and tambourines to the dance floor. All our guests, young and old, commented on how much fun they had! My wedding day was the best day because of Gunpowder Soup. Clay and I had more fun at our wedding than any other wedding we’ve been too!! We did not want the night to end!!! Very professional, talented, and overall INCREDIBLE!!

Highly Reccommend this band!
I researched numerous bands in the Texas area for our wedding day, but it was a struggle getting my husband to like any. When we stumbled upon Gunpowder Soup on a San Antonio TV show, we both were so impressed and loved them instantly! It was a bit nerve-wracking not being able to hear them perform live in person as they are primarily a private-event band, but they did not disappoint one bit!!! They are very organized and professional during the contract phase, and I didn’t have to worry one bit with setup during our wedding day. They knew exactly what to do! They performed piano keys during our ceremony which was beautiful, and we were able to request the songs we wanted which they learned for us. And for the reception, the band was so interactive during each song, getting everyone up and dancing, singing, and even playing instruments along with them! When I say “everyone” I mean even our grumpy uncle who doesn’t talk to anyone was dancing and singing! Truly an amazing, talented, fun group of people. Highly recommend this band for any event!

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 main singer has an incredible voice. 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). Our group is not an easy crowd to get excited and up to dance, after a full day of meetings – but half way through the performance a small group gathered to dance and we’re given tambourines. This band was also was happy to play MC for part of the business portion of the evening event, ie. “Please welcome Clint to the stage” and played an entrance track. Jeanine cracked a few jokes and added commentary to make the performance feel personal. Gunpowder Soup met all of our expectations, plus some. We will absolutely consider having them come to future events as long as budget allows.

The best band ever!

THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!! We’re from Colorado so when we started looking or a band for our nuptials we didn’t know where to begin. Luckily, we found Gun Powder Soup on YouTube and were confident that they would be great. They were 100x better than we expected which is saying a lot considering we knew they would be a blast. They interact with the guests and make it so fun to be part of the party. I’ve never had so much fun at a wedding reception and it’s just a bonus that it our wedding. My only regret is that we didn’t have a longer reception because we could’ve danced all night long to their entertaining set. You will not regret hiring them for your event.

We hired Gunpowder Soup for our wedding in December 2018 and they were absolutely awesome. They have a very good blend of country, pop, rock, and Latin music. Very engaging and interactive with the crowd as well with a microphone you can sing from and instruments to play. They were also very reasonably priced compared to some of the other bands we looked into. Fair warning, if you tell the band that you like Bust A Move, you will be singing it on stage with them. I highly recommend this band for your wedding, they will get the crowd moving.  Best Texas wedding band!

Gunpowder Soup played our wedding last wedding, and they were AMAZING! I had read all the reviews so I had high expectations – they exceeded them all! They were so fun and such great musicians. A couple of friends mentioned they were every bit as good if not better than the original artists. I could not more highly recommended this band!

Best party band!
This band IS the party! They were amazing. We had this band for my daughter’s wedding and could not have been happier. They played all genres and had everybody on the dance floor. The best memory is of 3 generations on the dance floor singing karaoke. I have been to several events with this band and all have been a blast!
As far as the business side, they were very straightforward and easy to work with. No surprises.

They showed up early for set up. They did an excellent job interacting with our guest and getting the whole crowd involved with the performance. They even allowed my youngest 2 daughters to perform a song and dance they made up 24 hours prior to our wedding, even though it was not on our wedding itinerary.
We for can’t wait for another function so we can book the band again.  The best Austin wedding band!

Gun Powder Soup was amazing! After hearing them for the first time, we immediately knew who to book for our daughter’s wedding on June 16th. They are fun, energetic, super talented, personable and all around great people! They play any genre you want…..and they perform it even better than the original artists!! Marius walks around with this guitar and a microphone inviting guests to sing along with them. Our guests have repeatedly texted us RAVING about our band.

If you want THE BEST entertainment for your event, you have to book this band. They are the epitome of fantastic!!!! We’ll be following them to every public event JUST to hear them play again.

Thank you, GPS, for making our daughter’s dream wedding come to life!

We hired Gunpowder soup for our parents 50th wedding anniversary. They did an outstanding job! Easy to work with during the entire process. Everyone was dancing all night and the guest of honor even helped sing a few songs. I highly recommend them for your next party. June 2018

Gunpowder Soup is the BEST!!! We hired them for our wedding reception this past Saturday at Luckenbach Dance Hall outside Fredericksburg, and they brought the PARTY! The band manager is so easy to work with, and accommodated all our requests…including our George Strait/Jon Pardi mash up first dance. They did an excellent job reading the crowd and adapted the playlist to keep the dance floor packed allllll night. One of the band members spent the entire night on the dance floor with us with a mic and guitar, rocking out and getting our friends involved. I could not have asked for a better band for our big night, and they were just so FUN! Central Texas, if you’re getting married, or having a party, or just want some amazing entertainment, HIRE THESE GUYS!!!  We researched many Austin bands and this is it!  Wedding History…

We selected Gunpowder Soup to perform and to entertain during the reception of Stephen and Morgan Whitmore on October 14th at Camp Lucy. They definitely put on a first class, five star performance. The song selection and the energy of the entire group had the dance floor hopping all night long. We have been told by many of the guests that Gunpowder Soup was the best wedding band ever. A special thanks to Jeanine for being so accommodating to us and working with us throughout the entire wedding process. You definitely surpassed all of our expectations!

“My husband found Gunpowder Soup while searching the web for a band. We saw the videos on youtube.com and decided to book them for our daughter’s upcoming wedding. We were a little nervous about hiring a band we had never really seen in person. On the day of the wedding, we were so happy to hear them play. The band is amazing! We had an awesome time the entire night. Our guests enjoyed dancing, singing and using their props. They did a fabulous job with the MC- ing all night long and getting the crowd involved. I would definitely hire them again for our next event. People are still talking about that night. Thank you Gunpowder Soup for an amazing job!”  Choriza de San Miguel Inc.

We had Gunpowder Soup for our company Christmas party and they did not disappoint! They kept the crowd engaged and energized with the variety of music they played, and were super accommodating for music before event and during the breaks. I HIGHLY recommend them, such a reasonable price for an amazing band!  

I just wanted to thank you guys for such an amazing night. We took a risk getting a live band after having a d.j. for so many years and I was nervous, BUT, I had nothing to be nervous about because you guys were AWESOME!! I appreciate you were set up and ready to play on time, played Christmas music before the event started to make it cozy, let us bother you during the time you were eating for issues with the mic. I asked Marrius if he could mix it up with hip hop during break he was like SURE, and Jeanine had a playlist ready to go that was perfect!  Marius was in the crowd making people dance, you just know how to really get people engaged.  You all have amazing talents, at one point I was like “is the radio on or is it the band” and I looked up and it was the BAND?? Seriously so good, I can’t say enough good things about you guys!

You made the party rock!! I have already given you a review on google, too bad they don’t allow for more stars!

Gunpowder Soup played at our son’s and daughter-in-law’s wedding this past weekend. The energy was exciting. We loved working with the group from the beginning until the end. They were professional and accommodating. A big thanks to Jeanne and Jayna for making it all happen! 10 stars!!!  Best of All Austin wedding bands we researched.

The band was a great fit for my wedding. The singer has an amazing voice and they provided a lot of entertainment. They even stayed an extra hour since my family was having such a great time. The male singer was on the dance floor letting the crowd sing and was so delightful. The groom and I ran late so we were unable to hear a lot of the music, but they did great at livening up the party. Would recommend to anyone in the Hill Country. They work great outdoors too.

The band was absolutely amazing!!! We so enjoyed the energy they brought. The party was nonstop and the bands crowd interaction was perfect. Everyone commented on how much fun the band was. One of the guests even asked for contact information to book them for their wedding! Would 100% recommend!  The best wedding band we ever heard!  The best wedding band. Really!

This band really knows how to party! We had them for our ceremony and the reception. The ceremony was classy and easy breezy, and the reception was awesome! We loved how they brought the mike to the dance floor for the guests to rock out and sing with the band. I didn’t know we had so many singers in our friends! They were lively, knowledgeable, and approachable. All the guests commented on how amazing the band was. The songs they played were perfect for my barn wedding on 4/8/2017, hip enough for the younger crowd to dance to and fun enough for everyone else to break into dances as well!

We had Gunpowder Soup play at our outdoor wedding in Leakey, TX at the Frio Pecan Farm. They were AWESOME! Everyone enjoyed them from our young guests to our older guests. I have had so many compliments about them. We loved how they came out on the dance floor and got the crowd involved. They were great to work with! I definitely recommend them!

Gunpowder Soup is absolutely amazing! We had them play at our wedding at Sisterdale Dancehall on June 4th. They played a wide variety of music and no one wanted to leave the dance floor. They had the microphone on the dance floor so people could sing a long and have a great time. They made all my dreams come true as to what my wedding should have been like. I would highly recommend them and I can’t wait to attend the next event they are playing at!

Best country band for my wedding…hands down! So many compliments from our wedding guests. Everyone loved the interaction the band provided with allowing our guests to play instruments and be a part of the band. They even put a microphone in the middle of the dance floor so everyone could sing along. Not alot of empty seats at the wedding which makes for great memories and pictures. As the bride I got my 15 minutes of fame and was the lead singer on stage. Loved it. The band is a great group of people. I consider Jeanine and Marius friends even though we have only met twice. Just those kind of good people having fun at what they do and doing a great job. If you need a well rounded, versatile, entertaining band this is a great choice. The band really makes or breaks the wedding at the end of the day and they know what they are doing. If no one is dancing or there is a lull they notice it and move on to something else. Highly recommended. Thanks Gunpowder Soup! I will hire you again when in need of a band.

Gunpowder Soup performed at our University of Oregon tailgate at the Alamo Bowl. The weather was terrible, but their great music, terrific interaction with guests and fun song selection really made the party. They were super flexible, easy to work with and had a great attitude under tough outdoor circumstances. We received numerous comments from our guests about how much they loved the band. We did too and will definitely hire them next time we are in San Antonio.

Gunpowder soup played at our Company Christmas Party. They are an awesome band! They played a variety of music and the sound was great! They did a great job keeping us entertained as the guitar player walked around the room handing out tambourines and cowbells while inviting the audience to sing along. The band manager was great to work with and the song selection was perfect! We will definitely keep Gunpowder Soup in mind for our next events.

Holy cow…I cannot say enough good things about Gunpowder Soup! They made our reception a blast – from letting guests play tambourines and sing into the mic to letting my husband and I come up on stage to rock out to the last song! Our guests were asking us where we found this band throughout the evening and after the wedding. They truly made our reception a night to remember for both us and our guests! Great value and quality, too!

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.

“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.”
