Premier Party Cover Band


 GUNPOWDER SOUP delivers the right attitude for each event

We are a well established and successful corporate events cover band that performs mainly for private events such as conventions, fundraiser, after business parties.  GUNPOWDER SOUP 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. 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.  Tell us your theme! Our management is detailed throughout the planning stages and our music team delivers a great show.  And, the owners of GUNPOWDER SOUP have an A+ from the Better Business Bureau and attend every job.

Denim and Diamonds, Fiesta, 70s and 80s party theme, Rodeo Time…GUNPOWDER SOUP will enhance your corporate event with explosive entertainment! Members of GUNPOWDER SOUP step off the stage and engage with guests to create an energetic party.  We invite people to sing on the mic, lead a train, dance, and play tambourine.  After many years in the music business, we know what corporate and convention planners need for the night to be successful.

Since our sound engineer is a GRAMMY Award Winning engineer, our sound is a perfect blend of vocals and music without feedback and excessive volume.  Before every show, our sound engineer will calibrate our carotid speakers to the ballroom, run sound check to check for technical issues, and he can safely “tie into” house systems. GUNPOWDER SOUP owns and monthly maintains our instruments (back line), professional technical gear and sound system (front line), LED and laser lights.  Because our engineer wants to control the quality of our sound, the band utilizes in-ear monitoring, electronic drums, no monitors, and no amps on stage.  Quality sound from an expert.

“I hired Gunpowder Soup to perform during an afterglow party for a corporate event, this was the best money ever spent! They were fantastic! They performed a very wide variety of music, and they keot the audience engaged! It was a remarkable performance, and remarkable evening! I highly recommend this group! We were so pleased!!”

Katherine | Google | Corporate | Pacesetters Homes

“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

“Gunpowder soup played at our Company Christmas Party. They are an awesome band! They played a variety of music and the sound was great! They did a great job keeping us entertained as the guitar player walked around the room handing out tambourines and cowbells while inviting the audience to sing along. The band manager was great to work with and the song selection was perfect! We will definitely keep Gunpowder Soup in mind for our next events.”

Ross | Google | Corporate | Caltex

“I hired them for the 4th for a neighborhood block party and everyone loved them, the music was amazing and the band made it so much fun – they were interactive and put on a fantastic show! Will for sure be hiring them again.”

ends the night with an encore and repeat business


Marius and Jeanine are building a new “state of the art” recording studio and own/manage a school, Audio Enginearing Institute, teaching audio engineering classes,  Our gear has been assembled by our GRAMMY award winning recording engineer, Marius Perron, who has a MS in Electrical Engineer from The University of Texas.  Jeanine Davis-Perron (owner) has a BS degree in Hospital Administration and team members have a BA degree in Music Education.


For cocktail hour, we play MP3 music from our stage speakers, unless you hire an acoustic musician from our staff.  During dinner, the Band will play low volume and slow to mid-tempo songs to accommodate conversations.  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 22 years later.

Our Business Model

We have been engaging with guests since 1999 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 call and book directly through our Contact page and we generate our own contracts.  Important: GUNPOWDER SOUP carries general liability insurance for venues that require a one million dollar policy.  The owner is always on site and manages the Band during the event.


Drums, bass, electric guitar, trombone, piano, keyboards, acoustic guitars (2).   If you want to hire a two or three piece horn section, let us know!   You will love the variety of three different lead vocalists and wall of harmonies.  Our musicians are multi talented on different instruments so we have a full sound depending on the instrumentation of each song.
