Premier Variety Band

 to Enhance Your Gala

We have dedicated lead vocalists for each genre!


GUNPOWDER SOUP is multi-talented with three lead vocalists who specialized in different genres of music: male vocalist for Country, Texas dance hall music, Motown; show stopping female vocalist for 80s, Top 40, Latin music; male vocalist for Classic Rock and 60s music.   

We kick off the party as soon as we arrive on stage and get your guests on the dance floor right away.   The Band monitors dancer’s preferences and change song selection in order to keep people singing and dancing the entire time.  For galas, we provide non-stop music during the set, take guests request from our repertoire, and play MP3 music while we are on break.  The party never ends with Gunpowder Soup!

Read our 5 star reviews, listen to our music, watch our videos, and you will understand why vendors and past clients recommend Gunpowder Soup!

We had so much fun with Gun Powder Soup! They are Extremely talented, fun and professional. They interacted with the crowd by playing guitar and had an extra microphone for guests to sing along...(because we all know that after a few cocktails, everyone thinks they are a rockstar.) One of the things I really appreciated is that the music wasn’t so loud that you couldn’t talk. I’ve been to weddings before where, the band is way too loud and hard on the older guests attending. Thank you Jeanine for helping me navigate through the selection process. I would Highly recommend this band.

GUNPOWDER SOUP has performed for many birthday and anniversary galas, since 1999.   And, since each event is different,  we love to hear your ideas, coordinate our play set with your itinerary, and know what genre of songs your guests will  prefer.  With our great repertoire of songs, we can accommodate all generations.  Our country music will sound country with great songs like “Drinking Problems, Amarillo By Morning, and Sweet Home Alabama.  For the pop genre, our female performer will entertain you with Bust A Move, Man I Feel Like A Woman, I Gotta Feeling, and she will sell it to the crowd.  For the classic rock lover, our GRAMMY winner will be the vocalist for Satisfaction,  Honky Tonk Women, and Born To Be Wild, etc.  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.

Business Entertainment

Gunpowder Soup is into details for fundraisers since the event is structured for auctions, awards, and dance.    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 Gunpowder Soup 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, inquire about our list of other services.  

I was looking for a band to play at our fundraiser. I looked at about 12 different bands online and went to see 3 of them perform and Gunpowder Soup was at the top of the list. They are very professional and excellent musicians and they really get the guests engaged. I had so many compliments about their performance. We will look to use them in the future.
