Demin and Diamonds, 70s and 80s party theme, Rodeo Time…Gunpowder Soup will enhance your corporate event with explosive entertainment. We are an established and successful entertaining band, performing mostly for private events. If your event is interested in background music only, we can play great cocktail music.
Members of Gunpowder Soup will step off the stage and engage with guests to create an energetic party. We invite people to sing on the mic, lead a train, lead a dance, and play tambourine.
THE RIGHT COMBINATION
After many years in the business, we know what corporate and convention events planners desire. Corporate events are managed different than weddings and this professional band knows the difference. Professional business mixed with fun energetic music is the right combination for your successful gala.
Attention to Details
Gunpowder Soup is a premier corporate cover band for entertainment. We communicate with technical directors, electricians, and event planners before arriving to the venue. The itinerary will be discussed in detail to ensure a perfectly timed event and we micro manage 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, and scheduled announcements. We monitor the crowd participation for deciding the next hit song and play most songs back to back.
The owners of Gunpowder Soup have an A+ from the Better Business Bureau.
Contact Us Directly
Our administration generates contracts for each event and engage in conference calls for clarity on scheduling. Our team will contact the venue manager for logistics and stage requirements.
Gunpowder Soup loves direct contact with clients because we want to know the theme, what genre of music for dinner, age of guests attending, type of function, and other services needed for a smooth event.
Gunpowder Soup encompasses two MC’s, one female and one male. The Band owns wireless mics for corporate announcements and speeches.
Our team is experienced with walk on cues and working with production managers.
If your party theme is Country, the Band will dress in boots, jeans, western shirt, and skirts. If your gala is formal or semi-formal, performers will dress in cocktail attire.

Corporate San Antonio Entertainment
“Gunpowder Soup was the feature performance at our Point S Tire & Auto annual business meeting in San Antonio. Performing to a room of 500 guests, they had so much energy and were excited to engage with the audience – cannot say that about every band. Pretty cool to see a band of five include two ladies. All of the band members are multi-talented; singing, playing instruments and dancing! They The guitarist worked the room, physically moving with guitar and microphone around the room, to encourage audience members to sing along with the band. The songs they chose were great; a variety of genres that all of our audience members enjoyed (some children and younger adults; mainly adults 35-65). We will absolutely consider having them come to future events as long as budget allows.”

For the show, Gunpowder Soup will start out with country and wedding favorites like Sweet Caroline, Crazy, or My Girl. Then we morph into 80s, line dance, and sing along songs like Friends In Low Places and Take Me Home Country Roads. The last set is dance favorites like Play That Funky Music, Kiss, and You Shook Me All NIght.
For corporate events, out-of-state guests want to dance the two step, learn how to line dance to Boot Scootin’ Boogie and Copperhead Road. Ask about line dance instructions, we will teach you!
“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 definitely look to use them in the future.”
