We Create a Party for Celebrations

GUNPOWDER SOUP has performed for many galas, birthday parties, and fundraising events, since 1999.   Since each gala is different and we love to hear your ideas, coordinate our song set with your itinerary, and know what genre of songs your guests prefer.  With our great repertoire of songs, we can accommodate all generations and gender.  Our country music will sound country with great songs like “Drinking Problems, Amarillo By Morning, and Sweet Home Alabama.  For the pop lovers, our female performer will entertain you with Bust A Move, I Wanna Dance With Somebody.  The second female vocalist will perform Crazy and Wagon Wheel.  For the classic rock lover, our GRAMMY winner will be the vocalist for Satisfaction, Honky Tonk Women.  GUNPOWDER SOUP wants you to sing and dance with us and we will make it happen!

The band travels to Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Corpus Christi, Texas Hill Country, Dripping Springs, New Braunfels, Fredericksburg, College Station, Houston, and other towns throughout Texas.  For destination events, please contact us for travel arrangements.

Fundraisers

GUNPOWDER SOUP has performed for many fundraisers and these events need to be structured for live and silent auctions.  Auctioneers may use our wireless mics (2) and sound system for live auctions.  During the first set, we remind people of silent auctions happening, emcee any “on the fly” announcements, and follow the itinerary set by the planner.   For a sold out event, hire this Band to entertain your guests! Contact us direct because we handle in-house bookings and we love the one on one contact.  GunPowder Soup wants to know what services you need prior to arriving at the venue and we like to schedule our performance/dance, around the other events happening.    To enhance your fundraiser event, inquire about our list of other services.

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.

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