Texas Cover Band for Texas Size Weddings


GUNPOWDER SOUP will arrive to the venue prepared to entertain and make your wedding day special.   

For cocktail hour, we will play background MP3 music or you can hire one of our performers for an acoustic treat.  During dinner, GUNPOWDER SOUP will play songs from our softer side so everyone can have a conversation.  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.  Our job is to keep everyone entertained and keep the reception party rolling until the send off.

wedding pros

We engage guests right away, start the party as soon as we start our first set, and by the end of the night, you will become our friend!  We are THE Band that started interacting with guests back in 1999 and have performed numerous weddings!  GUNPOWDER SOUP has lots of wedding experience, we have a great business model, owners are on site, and we employ great musical talent. One of our lead male performers will engage with guests for sing along songs such as “Take Me Home Country Roads”,  “Friends in Low Places”, and “Chicken Fried”.   

Our lead female vocalist will demonstrate line dance steps for “Boot Scootin Boogie” and “Copperhead Road”.  Another lead male performers will take you back to Classic Rock and the Oldies era.   Gunpowder Soup has built up a great client base and we see many people over and over again at different weddings and we love it!  Our goal is to energize and entertain all guests, keep the reception fun and moving, and bragging rights on throwing the best reception ever!! 

Of course, if you want Gunpowder Soup to remain on stage and play songs back to back without interrupts, we can take the sidelines and play great music!

“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!”

“AMAZING wedding band. I recently got married in downtown Austin at an upscale venue, and I’ll admit I had pretty high expectations for a band. My husband and I wanted our reception to be a GREAT party. We booked GPS based on online reviews and YouTube videos, without having seen them live. We absolutely made the right call. They kept the crowd on the dance floor and people were energized all evening. We got compliment after compliment on their ability and energy. I would absolutely book them again!”

We have a recording studio and own a school teaching audio engineering,   Our gear has been assembled by a Masters in Electrical Engineering and our GRAMMY engineer, Marius Perron, will monitor our balanced sound.   Gunpowder Soup specializes in sound quality and techniques.

The Performance

For cocktail hour, we play MP3 music from our stage speakers, unless you hire an acoustic musician from our staff.  During dinner, the Band will play low volume and slow to mid-tempo songs.    After formalities, we will fill the dance floor with dancers, interact with guests off-stage, enlist singers on our crowd microphone. 

The Business

We have been engaging with guests since 1999 and are experts in the entertainment business.  Detailed local female management and an A+ from the Better Business Bureau set us apart from other bands.   Call and book directly through our Contact page.    The owner will always be on site and manages the Band during the event.   


Gunpowder Soup employs 6 members on stage: drums, bass, electric guitar, trombone, piano, keyboards, acoustic guitar (2).   If you want to add to our horn section, let us know and we will hire musicians from a list of musicians in San Antonio.    You will love the variety of three different lead vocalists and wall of harmonies from our members.
