Premier Cover Band




dance floor hits



GUNPOWDER SOUP will entertain everyone, young and old, with a variety of songs from different genres and 4 lead vocalists.  Every event is different and our management team specialize in ensuring corporate clients hear a little country, maybe some line dancing songs, little Spanish, and dance hits at the end of the evening.

Weddings are totally different than corporate entertainment and we start the first set with dinner music, slow with controlled volume.   The second set is 80s, mixed with country and “sing along songs”.  The third set is “let's take it home” with all top dance hits performed back to back and some sing along country in-between.

Fundraisers require a different thought process and our Band leader will generate a song list with 80s, Country hits, and Groove genre.  GUNPOWDER SOUP will create a festive mood right away so that bidding continues throughout the evening and while on stage, we will emcee the itinerary.

Of course, if you request all country or pop/rock genre, message the band below and GUNPOWDER SOUP will honor your request.   We accomodate guests requests and change the song list immediately if the client decides to change the genre at the last minute.   GUNPOWDER SOUP utilizes talk back mics to signal song changes.

Marius and Jeanine are building a new “state of the art” recording studio and own a school teaching audio engineering,  Our gear has been assembled by our GRAMMY award winning recording engineer, Marius Perron, who is also an electrical engineer.  Jeanine Davis-Perron (owner) has a BS degree in Hospital Administration and the other band members have a BA degree in Music.

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 microphones on the dance floor and we continue 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: 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.
