Cover Band for Texas Size Weddings


GUN POWDER 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, GUN POWDER 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.

GUN POWDER 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.  We have so many great cover songs which we perform and incorporate our own style.  Other bands will try to duplicate our success but there is only one Gun Powder Soup.

“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!”

If outdoors, a tent or cover must be provided.

Marius and Jeanine are building a new “state of the art” recording studio and own/manage a school, Audio Enginearing Institute, teaching audio engineering classes,  Our gear has been assembled by our GRAMMY award winning recording engineer, Marius Perron, who has a MS in Electrical Engineer from The University of Texas.  Jeanine Davis-Perron (owner) has a BS degree in Hospital Administration and team members have a BA degree in Music Education.

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 to accommodate conversations.  After formalities, we will fill the dance floor with dancers, interact with guests off-stage, enlist singers on our crowd microphone.  GUN POWDER SOUP started tambourines and crowd mics on the dance floor and we continue this client favorite 22 years later.

Our Business Model
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.   Clients call and book directly through our Contact page and we generate our own contracts.  Important: GUN POWDER SOUP carries general liability insurance for venues that require a one million dollar policy.  The owner is always on site and manages the Band during the event.

Gun Powder Soup employs 6 members on stage and 1 sound engineer: drums, bass, electric guitar, trombone, piano, keyboards, acoustic guitars (2).   If you want to add a full horn section to our instrumentation on stage, let us know, and we will bring the Motown sound to you!   You will love the variety of three different lead vocalists and wall of harmonies.  Our musicians are multi talented on different instruments so we have a full sound depending on the instrumentation of each song.
