Gunpowder Soup was the best decision that we made for our wedding! They are so personable and down to earth and they go out of their way to make your wedding night memorable and FUN! We have received so many compliments from wedding guests in regards to how awesome GPS is. We will be using them for any event in the future that we can because they’re that amazing! Thank you Gunpowder Soup!

We are thrilled we chose to work with Gun Powder Soup! Jeanine was professional and responsive leading up to our wedding day. The biggest compliment we received after our event was how interactive and entertaining our band was! Thank you to GPS for making our reception everything we dreamed of!

Gunpowder Soup is a fantasic band. I've seen them perform 3 different times at public events. The lead singer is a great singer, performer & she really get into the songs. The drummer really rocks it all night & she directs the show. The bass guitarist mingles with the audience & engages them to sing along. They have a wide range of songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s & country. They are a very entertaining band that does a great job of contecting with the audience. Definitely would book them for a wedding or other event.

We hired Gunpowder soup for our parents 50th wedding anniversary. They did an outstanding job! Easy to work with during the entire process. Everyone was dancing all night and the guest of honor even helped sing a few songs. I highly recommend them for your next party.

This band is top shelf. Their covers are perfectly executed and have just the right touch of personality and originality. They’re also really fun and congenial with the crowd. Way to go!

Such a fantastic band!! You just can't ask for a more professional group of people and it is obvious how much they care about what they do. Gunpowder has it down and did a fantastic job at our wedding! I knew from the first moment that they were the band for us and now we have the best memories of our special day! They will engage your crowd no matter the audience and keep the night pumping! Thanks again for being a part of our wedding!!

Hiring Gunpowder Soup is seriously the best decision we made for our wedding. They had the crowd cheering for an encore after they finished their set! It’s been almost a month since the wedding and people are still coming up to me raving about the band. Couldn’t recommend them enough!!

We had GPS for my daughters wedding. BEST DECISION EVER!! They were so much fun and everyone had a great time! Interaction with the crowd with tambourines (we had some that had too much fun ), and singing on the microphones! The dance floor was full all night. We could not have had a better band! Book them now!!

Gunpowder Soup Band brought the party! Gunpowder Soup played at my daughter’s wedding this past weekend. They played all the best songs and they have extremely talented musicians! They also get the crowd involved. The entire wedding was dancing and had so much fun!! We were so sad when they told us it was the last song- it was still very crowded on the dance floor. Everyone at our wedding asked where we found this awesome band. My daughter was the one who found the band saying that it is always more fun to have live music - she was right! If you want to make your wedding or birthday celebration or other event exceptional, you absolutely NEED to book this band!! They were worth every dollar spent! I have not had so much fun on an evening out in such a long time!

Gunpowder Soup is the best band!!! My sister originally used this band for her wedding so I got to hear and see them play in advance. We decided to book them for my wedding for the big reason of how great of entertainers they are! They really get the crowd going and dancing. They interact with the crowd and let the crowd sing in the microphone. The band is a great mix of all different talents and both men and women are in it. They play all types of genres of songs and really listen to your wants and needs. If you have the means to book this band for your wedding, DO IT!!!!! Highly recommend!

We hired GPS for my step-daughter's wedding outside under a tent at our place in the country near La Grange and they were fantastic. The energy level was amazing - the audience participation was so fun - the music was perfect for a beautiful night under the stars in July. They were responsive and easy to work with. Our friends still stop us and talk about how much fun they had at the wedding and GPS was an integral part of that! Thanks so much for helping to make Ashley's wedding perfect. And that lead singer Jayna is destined for greatness!

You will not be disappointed when you book Gunpowder soup to play at your wedding, party or any other event. They were amazing from the start, especially through all of the admin work, picking songs, etc. They are very professional and they sound really awesome! Great Great Band. They played at our wedding on 10/17/20 and We are so glad we were able to have them! Nothing but class! They do it all from DJ Services, Emcee, Ceremony Music and of course the Reception music. We had such a great time at our wedding. Thank you Gunpowder Soup! Logan & Kyle

“When I started the process over a year ago to find the best band for my daughter’s wedding, I searched the internet for bands from Oklahoma City, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Waco and San Antonio and I found GUNPOWDER SOUP. So I did my research and and spoke to 12 -15 of their clients. Not only to fathers and mothers of the bride but also the general managers of the venues that they have performed at over the years Every person I spoke with could not speak highly enough of Jeanine and the bands talents. So I did more research until I finally made the decision to hire GUNPOWDER SOUP. No doubt the best decision I could have ever made. I worked with Jeanine for many months and at every step of the way she walked me through all the decisions that I needed to make. She was simply a pro at this and I could tell that from the very first phone call we had. I was shocked by what all the band is responsible for other than just playing music at the ceremony, the cocktail party, the reception and to the introducing the bridal party. She had it all under control and I had nothing to worry about the day of the wedding. I will never forget the day she told me a year ago to just leave the music and entertainment to her and that is what I did. Thanks for that great advice!! The skills of all the musicians and the voices of the singers were simply amazing! Thank you GPS for making my daughter’s wedding day the most spectacular event that I could have ever imagined.”

“Gunpowder Soup was the featured band for the IKEA Live Oak Grand Opening and they were awesome! They kept the crowd engaged and entertained and were a pleasure to work with!”
Dawn | Google | Corporate | IKEA
“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! 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). Our group is not an easy crowd to get excited and up to dance, after a full day of meetings – but half way through the performance a small group gathered to dance and we’re given tambourines. This band was also was happy to play MC for part of the business portion of the evening event, ie. “Please welcome Clint to the stage” and played an entrance track. Jeanine cracked a few jokes and added commentary to make the performance feel personal. Gunpowder Soup met all of our expectations, plus some. We will absolutely consider having them come to future events as long as budget allows.”
Candice | GOOGLE | Corporate | Point S Tire
“Gun Powder Soup was beyond amazing! Very energetic and played songs that appealed to everyone. A good time was definitely had by all! Jeanine was fantastic to work with as well and made everything super easy. I highly recommend them and look forward to booking Gun Powder Soup again in the future!”

” Fantastic! I booked Gunpowder Soup for a work celebration and they were awesome! We have very diverse group with ages ranging from 20s to 50s and Gunpowder Soup played something for everyone! They were interactive and kept everyone on the dance floor. My team is still talking about the awesome band!!! Book Gunpowder Soup for your next event! You will not be disappointed!”
