The itinerary will be discussed in detail to ensure a perfectly timed event and we micromanage 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 crowd participation to decide the next hit song and play most songs back to back.
Gunpowder Soup employees three lead vocalists who specialize in different genres of music. Our country music and vocals will sound country, our 80’s and Top 40 will sound pop, and our Classic Rock music will rock. And, who does not want to hear a little Spanish music while in the Hill Country! Or, learn to line dance! We kick off the party as soon as we arrive on stage and get your guests on the dance floor right away. Most importantly, 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 requests and most songs are performed back to back without interruption. Because Gunpowder Soup has been in the wedding and corporate business for many years, we know how to make your night special!

“If you are looking for a FANTASTIC PARTY BAND for a wedding or event, look no further — GUNPOWDER SOUP IS IT!!! My husband and I hired GPS for our daughter’s wedding in College Station, Texas on 2/22/20 and we were absolutely BLOWN AWAY! We contracted with them to provide every service they offered — from the wedding music, MC option, and of course, reception ENTERTAINMENT — and we could not be happier customers! Our daughter and new son-in-law — and over 150 guests — had to be pulled off the dance floor at the end of the night as one song was as FUN as the next! From the initial contact with Jeanine last January to the follow-up after the wedding, the whole process was extremely PROFESSIONAL and E-A-S-Y! We truly cannot say enough good things about GPS and will forever be thankful that they were a part of our special evening!”
“The best wedding band (or any occasion band, for that matter) EVER!! They are seriously amazing! They were the best part of our wedding. They know exactly how to engage an audience. Everyone was up on their feet dancing! Even some of my guests who I thought I’d never see dancing!! Our wedding was almost a month ago and people are still talking about the band and how much fun they were. They also make an effort to make the bride and groom feel special all evening! They are great about following the timeline of events for the evening. I loved that they bring a microphone in to the audience to let guests sing. And the tambourines they pass out are so much fun! I highly recommend this band, I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else :).”
“My husband and I had a blast with GPS!! They are so interactive and fun. All of our friends and family have talked nonstop about how great this band was! What I loved is that they actually listened to the requests of me and my husband. Everything we asked on a whim during the night the band executed. Highly recommend!!!.”
Gunpowder Soup will arrive to the venue prepared to entertain. Prior to the Big Day, we contact the venue for logistics, arrange our performance with your itinerary, download the 1st dance songs on our computer system, manage and emcee the 1st dance, bride/father dance, groom/mother dance, prepare your special song list, schedule band rehearsal, and calibrate our speakers for each show.
For cocktail hour, we will play some background MP3 music to enhance your conversations and cocktails. During dinner, people want to communicate without loud music so Gunpowder Soup will play quieter background songs from our repertoire or, we can play some low volume MP3 music. After the 1st dance, bride/father dance, groom/mother dance are finished, our sound engineer will turn up the volume and the Band will explode into action! Gunpowder Soup reads the crowd’s dance preferences and will make set changes “on-the-fly” in order to accommodate the dancers. Most songs are played back to back except when there are announcements or wedding customs.
We customize a new song list for each reception and you can help us by selecting songs from our repertoire under the SONG LIST & CUSTOMIZE YOUR SONG LIST! Click on our CONTACT BUTTON at the end of this page and fill out the form for a quote and in-depth information on all our services.
