AWARD WINNING COVER BAND

 

Winner of THE KNOT Best of Weddings 2022 Award

Wedding Wire Couple's Choice Awards 2022!

 

GUNPOWDER SOUP is one-of-a-kind, professional wedding band in Fredericksburg Texas, playing a variety of top hits for weddings, corporate events, conventions, fundraisers, and 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.  GUNPOWDER SOUP has been in the wedding and corporate business since 1999, therefore, we know how to make your event special.

 

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

The Band employees three lead vocalists who specialize in different genres of music such as Top 40, Country, 80s, 70s, Motown, Latin, and wedding dance favorites. Our country music and vocals will sound country, our 80's and Top 40 will sound pop, and our Classic Rock music will rock.  GUNPOWDER SOUP starts the set with country for grandparents and those who love Country music.  In the 2nd set, we start with 80s and sprinkle in country sing along songs.  For the 3rd set, major dance hits along with a rowdy country song or two.

 

ATTENTION TO DETAILS

The itinerary will be discussed in detail to ensure a perfectly timed event and we micromanage 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, wedding announcements, and change in schedule.

 

THERE IS NO OTHER FREDERICKSBURG WEDDING BAND LIKE US!

We are a professional popular Texas variety band with great vocals, talented musicians, engaging performers, detailed management, and owners with an A+ from the BBB. There is a big reason why we have been around so long and it is because we are experts in entertainment and our business model is above other bands.

As Seen on The Knot

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!

Everyone at the reception loved the band. They did an excellent job as DJ when the occasion arose. They were actively involved with the guests and some of our best pictures are with the guest singing with band members or dancing with abandon. I would highly recommend anyone needing music for a function look seriously at Gunpowder Soup.

CREDENTAILS

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. Jayna – BA in Music Therapy.

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. GUNPOWDER SOUP started tambourines and crowd mics on the dance floor and we continue this client favorite 22 years later.

GPS 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: GUNPOWDER 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

Drums, bass, electric guitar, piano, keyboards, acoustic guitars (2). If you want to hire a two or three piece horn section, let us know! 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.
