Marius and Jeanine are building a new “state of the art” recording studio and own/manage a school, Audio Enginearing Institute, teaching audio engineering classes, audio-eng.com. Our gear has been assembled by our GRAMMY award winning recording engineer, Marius Perron, who has a MS in Electrical Engineer from The University of Texas. Jeanine Davis-Perron (owner) has a BS degree in Hospital Administration and team members have a BA degree in Music Education.
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. GUN POWDER SOUP started tambourines and crowd mics on the dance floor and we continue this client favorite 22 years later.
Our 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: GUN POWDER 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.
Gun Powder Soup employs 6 members on stage and 1 sound engineer: drums, bass, electric guitar, trombone, piano, keyboards, acoustic guitars (2). If you want to add a full horn section to our instrumentation on stage, let us know, and we will bring the Motown sound to you! 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.
