“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.”

Texas Cover Bands

…we are the best!  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.”
