“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!!”
