“Amazing!!! I had no choice but to select Gunpowder Soup for my wedding because my family had seen them at another San Antonio wedding and my dad was hooked. I was so excited they were not booked for my wedding weekend. Their song list is amazing and gets the whole crowd dancing. The band interacts with the crowd bringing mics and tambourines to the dance floor. All our guests, young and old, commented on how much fun they had! My wedding day was the best day because of Gunpowder Soup. Clay and I had more fun at our wedding than any other wedding we’ve been too!! We did not want the night to end!!! Very professional, talented, and overall INCREDIBLE!!”

2019 Wedding Ceremony And Reception In New Braunfels Texas

Texas Wedding Band

“We hired Gunpowder Soup for our wedding in December 2018 and they were absolutely awesome. They have a very good blend of country, pop, rock, and Latin music. Very engaging and interactive with the crowd as well with a microphone you can sing from and instruments to play. They were also very reasonably priced compared to some of the other bands we looked into. Fair warning, if you tell the band that you like Bust A Move, you will be singing it on stage with them. I highly recommend this band for your wedding, they will get the crowd moving.”
