Cover Band

award winning variety band


GUNPOWDER SOUP is one-of-a-kind, reputable, professional cover band in Corpus Christi Texas, playing a variety of cover songs for weddings, corporate events, conventions, fundraisers, parties, and large galas. Once we step on the stage, our aim is to kick off the party and get your guests on the dance floor right away. After performing for many years, we know which songs will flood the dance floor and which songs bring people to our crowd microphone.  Most songs are performed back-to-back and clients have a choice in song selection for the event.

GUNPOWDER SOUP has been in the wedding and corporate business since 2013.  We know how to make your event special plus we have won numerous awards from The Knot and Wedding Wire for outstanding service in the wedding industry.


COUNTRY, POP/ROCK 80s, 70s, 60s

The Band has three to four lead vocalists who specialize in different genres of music such as Top 40, Country, 80s, 70s, Oldies, Disco, and Latin.  We try and duplicate the songs you know and love. Our country songs and vocals will sound country and the pop songs will not sound country.  Our 80s and Classic Rock music will rock. GUNPOWDER SOUP starts the dinner set with country and easy listening songs.  In the 2nd set, we play Disco, 80s, and sprinkle in Country songs.  For the 3rd set, the dance floor is packed because we play major dance hits.

Clients and guests can request songs and if we know the song, GUNPOWDER SOUP will play it!   If the event is a party without dinner or a “meet and greet” hour, we will start right away with our country two step and dance floor favorites.



In-ear monitors and talk-back mics are used to communicate between members on stage for song selection, walk-in/walk-off cues, emcee auctions closings, and change in schedule. GUNPOWDER SOUP takes extra measures to ensure all the details are finalized before the band arrives at the venue. The Band will contact the venue, electrical coordinators, planners, and wedding planners for scheduling and logistics.



There are many reasons why we have been around for so long.  Our strong business keeps growing.   

What makes GUNPOWDER SOUP successful and the most popular variety band in Texas?  It is our great lead and background vocals, talented musicians, engaging and dancing performers, detailed management, quality sound, Texas friendly service, and high end stage lights and PA system.

Owner has an A+ from the BBB for their businesses in entertainment and their engineering school.  We are experts in the entertainment business and other bands try to duplicate our business model. GUNPOWDER SOUP replies on client reviews and referrals for our business, not by placing ads on Facebook, Instagram, The Knot, Wedding Wire.

Read our 5 star reviews, listen to our music, watch our videos, and you will understand why clients recommend us to their friends and family.  Our busy calendar is because of our service and recommendation.   High end vendors request GUNPOWDER SOUP.

“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.”

“Gunpowder Soup was one of the best decisions we made about my daughters wedding. They were great at communicating and completely professional. They made the wedding reception so much fun from start to finish!

Everyone was on the dance floor the whole time. Their vibe kept everyone so pumped up. I felt like no one left the event early! Absolutely fantastic!”  Claudia T

Marius and Jeanine are building a new “state of the art” recording studio and run an audio school, Audio Enginearing Institute, teaching audio engineering classes,

Our gear has been assembled by our two time GRAMMY Award Winning Recording Engineer, Marius Perron, who has a MS degree in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas and a BA in Geometry from Trinity University.   Jeanine Davis-Perron is the owner and manages GUNPOWDER SOUP LLC with hands on every detail of the business.  Jeanine has a BS degree in Hospital Administration from Southwest Texas State University.    


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. GUNPOWDER SOUP started tambourines and crowd mics on the dance floor and we continue this client favorite.


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 can call and book directly through our Contact Page and we generate our own contracts.  We work with agencies but prefer direct contact with clients for detailed information gathering about the event. 

GUNPOWDER SOUP carries general liability insurance of one million dollars.  Have your venue contact Jeanine for a copy of the certificate.  The owner is always on site and manages the Band during the event.


Drums, Bass, Electric Lead Guitar, Piano, Synthesizer, Acoustic Guitar, and Horn (s) (depending on service).  Since GUNPOWDER SOUP is multi-talented on many instruments, our players will use different instruments depending on the song.   We may have two members playing electric guitar or two keyboardist playing at the same time.  We try to cover the songs as close to the original version.

If you want to hire a two or three piece horn section, email for availability.  You will love our variety of 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.
