WEDDING REVIEWS

“When I started the process over a year ago to find the best band for my daughter’s wedding, I searched the internet for bands from Oklahoma City, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Waco and San Antonio and I found GUNPOWDER SOUP. So I did my research and and spoke to 12 -15 of their clients. Not only to fathers and mothers of the bride but also the general managers of the venues that they have performed at over the years Every person I spoke with could not speak highly enough of Jeanine and the bands talents. So I did more research until I finally made the decision to hire GUNPOWDER SOUP. No doubt the best decision I could have ever made. I worked with Jeanine for many months and at every step of the way she walked me through all the decisions that I needed to make. She was simply a pro at this and I could tell that from the very first phone call we had. I was shocked by what all the band is responsible for other than just playing music at the ceremony, the cocktail party, the reception and to the introducing the bridal party. She had it all under control and I had nothing to worry about the day of the wedding. I will never forget the day she told me a year ago to just leave the music and entertainment to her and that is what I did. Thanks for that great advice!! The skills of all the musicians and the voices of the singers were simply amazing! Thank you GPS for making my daughter’s wedding day the most spectacular event that I could have ever imagined.”

“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!”

“Everyone at the reception loved the band. They did an excellent job as DJ when the occasion arose. They were actively involved with the guests and some of our best pictures are with the guest singing with band members or dancing with abandon. I would highly recommend anyone needing music for a function look seriously at Gunpowder Soup.”

“Such a fantastic band!! You just can’t ask for a more professional group of people and it is obvious how much they care about what they do. Gunpowder has it down and did a fantastic job at our wedding! I knew from the first moment that they were the band for us and now we have the best memories of our special day! They will engage your crowd no matter the audience and keep the night pumping! Thanks again for being a part of our wedding!!”

” We had GPS for my daughters wedding. BEST DECISION EVER!! They were so much fun and everyone had a great time! Interaction with the crowd with tambourines (we had some that had too much fun 😉), and singing on the microphones! The dance floor was full all night. We could not have had a better band! Book them now!!”

“Hiring Gunpowder Soup is seriously the best decision we made for our wedding. They had the crowd cheering for an encore after they finished their set! It’s been almost a month since the wedding and people are still coming up to me raving about the band. Couldn’t recommend them enough!!”

“Gunpowder Soup Band brought the party! Gunpowder Soup played at my daughter’s wedding this past weekend. They played all the best songs and they have extremely talented musicians! They also get the crowd involved. The entire wedding was dancing and had so much fun!! We were so sad when they told us it was the last song- it was still very crowded on the dance floor. Everyone at our wedding asked where we found this awesome band. My daughter was the one who found the band saying that it is always more fun to have live music – she was right! If you want to make your wedding or birthday celebration or other event exceptional, you absolutely NEED to book this band!! They were worth every dollar spent! I have not had so much fun on an evening out in such a long time!”

CORPORATE GALA REVIEWS

“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! 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). 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.”
