“We recently had Gunpowder Soup play at our wedding, and they MADE THE NIGHT!!!  Everyone was dancing the entire night, even at the beginning of dinner!  Right from the first song they started playing, people were out of their seats dancing.  Our guests were chanting “one more song” over and over when Gunpowder Soup announced for everyone to line up for the send-off.  They made everyone sing in a microphone around the crowd and had people who don’t usually dance sore the next day from dancing so much! Highly highly highly recommend this band.  They play everything- from country to popular oldies and new, current songs! You can’t go wrong with them.”

“I was looking for a well rounded band that played both great dance and country music for our daughter’s wedding. I found Gunpowder Soup on the internet and really liked their style, look and song choices posted on their website. It felt a bit risky for such an important event, never hearing them, but after talking to Jeanine, i was satisfied with her responses and the fair pricing. I was confident it was a good choice. However, it was a GREAT choice! The band was energetic, fun, professional, extremely talented, kept the dance floor full all night and made a wonderful wedding reception even better! We received comments all evening about the quality of the band and i’m sure we will hear it for a very long time! Thank you Jeanine, Marius and the rest of the band, you made it a fabulous party!”

“THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!! We’re from Colorado so when we started looking or a band for our nuptials we didn’t know where to begin. Luckily, we found Gun Powder Soup on YouTube and were confident that they would be great. They were 100x better than we expected which is saying a lot considering we knew they would be a blast. They interact with the guests and make it so fun to be part of the party. I’ve never had so much fun at a wedding reception and it’s just a bonus that it our wedding. My only regret is that we didn’t have a longer reception because we could’ve danced all night long to their entertaining set. You will not regret hiring them for your event.”
