COVER BANDS FOR AFTER PARTY AND CONVENTIONS

 

We are a well established and successful corporate events cover band that performs mainly for private events such as conventions, fundraiser, after business parties.   GUN POWDER SOUP communicate with technical directors, electricians, and event planners before arriving to the venue.  The itinerary will be discussed in detail to ensure a perfectly timed event and we micro manage our productions to ensure high quality entertainment.   In-ear monitors and talk-back mics are used to communicate between members on stage for song selection, walk in/walk off cues, and scheduled announcements.  We monitor the crowd participation for deciding the next hit song and play most songs back to back. If your party theme is Country, the Band will dress in boots, jeans, western shirt, and skirts.   If your gala is formal or semi-formal, performers will dress in cocktail attire.  Tell us your theme! Our management is detailed throughout the planning stages and our music team delivers a great show.  And, the owners of GUN POWDER SOUP have an A+ from the Better Business Bureau and attend every job.  Prior corporate events we have perform include iFLY, Ryder Inc., New York Life, Jabil, Meitec, Humana Society, Oregon Ducks (final 4 at the Alamodome VIP party), etc…

FUN YET PROFESSIONAL

Denim and Diamonds, Fiesta, 70s and 80s party theme, Rodeo Time…GUN POWDER SOUP will enhance your corporate event with explosive entertainment! Members of GUN POWDER SOUP step off the stage and engage with guests to create an energetic party.  We invite people to sing on the mic, lead a train, dance, and play tambourine.  After many years in the music business, we know what corporate and convention planners need for the night to be successful. Since our sound engineer is a GRAMMY Award Winning engineer, our sound is a perfect blend of vocals and music without feedback and excessive volume.  Before every show, our sound engineer will calibrate our carotid speakers to the ballroom, run sound check to check for technical issues, and he can safely “tie into” house systems. GUN POWDER SOUP owns and monthly maintains our instruments (back line), professional technical gear and sound system (front line), LED and laser lights.  Because our engineer wants to control the quality of our sound, the band utilizes in-ear monitoring, electronic drums, and no amps on stage.  Quality sound!

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!

GUN POWDER SOUP

always ends the night with and encore and repeat business

Credentials
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.

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.  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.

Instrumentation
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.
