We duplicate the songs you know and love with three (3) lead vocalists, everyone singing harmony, and musicians who play multi instruments.



GUNPOWDER SOUP has been around a long time because of our strong business model.  Management will ensure all details are finalized before arrival and we work with the venue and wedding planner for scheduling and logistics.  Female owned and operated.



During dinner or meet and greet, we play softly so people can congregate.  After dinner or the awards, we turn up the volume and turn on the party!   The dance floor will be packed with dancers and most songs are played back-to-back.  For straight “let's just party” situations with zero dinner or cocktail hour, we start the party when the doors open.  

We know which songs will flood the dance floor and will orchestrate the flow of the event.  Guests can request songs from our repertoire.  Everyone loves to sing on our crowd mic!   During break, we play MP3 music from stage.

Make your Event Unforgettable with Engaging Performers

“Marius walks around with this guitar and a microphone inviting guests to sing along with him”

“Our guests have repeatedly texted us RAVING about our band”

“Guests still talking about the band!  Numerous Texting after our wedding reception!”

“You will find they are very professional, organized, and genuinely sincere what they do best”

“They knew exactly how to engage the audience because everyone was dancing at our convention”

“I went to see three different bands and Gunpowder Soup won hands down”

“The biggest compliment we received was how interactive and entertaining our band was!”

“The dance floor was full and the guests were requesting an encore at the end of the night!”



“Gunpowder Soup played for our block party in Boerne. They got the people dancing in the streets and singing on mics. The songs they played were everyone’s favorites and customers keep asking my employees to hire the band for another party.”

Patti | Corporate | Black Rifle Coffee Company

“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!”

Doris L | Wedding | College Station

“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.”

“Gunpowder Soup was the featured band for the IKEA Live Oak Grand Opening and they were awesome! They kept the crowd engaged and entertained and were a pleasure to work with!”

Dawn | Google | Corporate | IKEA

“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.”

Candice | GOOGLE | Corporate | Point S Tire

“Gun Powder Soup was beyond amazing! Very energetic and played songs that appealed to everyone. A good time was definitely had by all! Jeanine was fantastic to work with as well and made everything super easy. I highly recommend them and look forward to booking Gun Powder Soup again in the future!”

Dawn | Google | Corporate | SkinCure Oncology

“I hired Gunpowder Soup to perform during an afterglow party for a corporate event, this was the best money ever spent! They were fantastic! They performed a very wide variety of music, and they keot the audience engaged! It was a remarkable performance, and remarkable evening! I highly recommend this group! We were so pleased!!”

Katherine | Google | Corporate | Pacesetters Homes

” Fantastic! I booked Gunpowder Soup for a work celebration and they were awesome! We have very diverse group with ages ranging from 20s to 50s and Gunpowder Soup played something for everyone! They were interactive and kept everyone on the dance floor. My team is still talking about the awesome band!!! Book Gunpowder Soup for your next event! You will not be disappointed!”

Shannan | Corporate | Arkansas Dental

“Gunpowder soup played at our Company Christmas Party. They are an awesome band! They played a variety of music and the sound was great! They did a great job keeping us entertained as the guitar player walked around the room handing out tambourines and cowbells while inviting the audience to sing along. The band manager was great to work with and the song selection was perfect! We will definitely keep Gunpowder Soup in mind for our next events.”

Ross | Google | Corporate | Caltex

“I hired them for the 4th for a neighborhood block party and everyone loved them, the music was amazing and the band made it so much fun – they were interactive and put on a fantastic show! Will for sure be hiring them again.”

Gina | Google | Corporate | Option One Real Estate

“We hired them for our company Open House and they were so great to work with! They are so much fun and know how to work the crowd. Played a wide range of music and made our event so much fun!”
