best Live San Antonio Band - Gunpowder Soup



Gunpowder Soup is a premier cover band that entertains guests with great vocals, exerts high energy with dance and props, performs songs back to back, MC service during the performance, and dazzles the stage with a light show.   The Band is well known for creating a party on the dance floor by engaging with guests off stage for singing and dancing.  The song list is full of dance hits from genres: Country, 80s, Classic Rock, Tejano, and Top 40.

We love country music and so does every Texan.  This Texas country band will play a variety of music for all generations, but for the first set, we play country for dinner and two stepping.  In the second set, we start with 80s hits and play more country music for sing along.  The last set is filled with Top 40 hits for aggressive dancing!  Sometimes, guests request slow country songs in the last set, and we oblige.

Gunpowder Soup will have your guests bragging about the fun they had at your event!

“Gun Powder Soup was amazing! After hearing them for the first time, we immediately knew who to book for our daughter’s wedding on June 16th. They are fun, energetic, super talented, personable and all around great people! They play any genre you want…..and they perform it even better than the original artists!! Marius walks around with this guitar and a microphone inviting guests to sing along with them. Our guests have repeatedly texted us RAVING about our band.  If you want THE BEST entertainment for your event, you have to book this band. They are the epitome of fantastic!!!!  We’ll be following them to every public event JUST to hear them play again.  Thank you, GPS for making our daughter’s dream wedding come to life!”  Stacy S. 2018



There are many cover and country bands in Texas but Gunpowder Soup is top in entertainment. We have three lead vocalists who specialized in different genres of music.  Our country music and vocals will sound country and our Top 40 and Classic Rock music will sound rock and pop.

We kick off the party as soon as we arrive on stage and get your guests on the dance floor right away.  Most important, we monitor the dancer’s preferences and change song selection in order to keep people singing and dancing the entire time.  Guests are welcome to make request and most songs are performed back to back without interruption.  Because Gunpowder Soup has been in the wedding and corporate business for several years, we know how to make your night special!

Sometimes the Band will be hired for a public show or fundraiser and that information can be found on our Gunpowder Soup’s Facebook Page.

The Band travels to Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Corpus Christi, Laredo, Del Rio, Dripping Springs, Driftwood, and small towns throughout Texas.  Research Gunpowder Soup on the internet and you will soon realize we are THE entertainment for your next event!

“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.”
Candice B – Point S Tire Inc.

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!

Gunpowder Soup specializes in weddings and creating fun for wedding customs and special dances.   Our professional team can also perform for your ceremony.

“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.”
