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.

We have been engaging with guests since 2010 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 can call and book directly through our Contact Page and we generate our own contracts.
