“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 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! 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!”
“When I started the process over a year ago to find the best band for my daughter’s wedding, I searched the internet for bands from Oklahoma City, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Waco and San Antonio and I found GUNPOWDER SOUP. So I did my research and and spoke to 12 -15 of their clients. Not only to fathers and mothers of the bride but also the general managers of the venues that they have performed at over the years Every person I spoke with could not speak highly enough of Jeanine and the bands talents. So I did more research until I finally made the decision to hire GUNPOWDER SOUP. No doubt the best decision I could have ever made. I worked with Jeanine for many months and at every step of the way she walked me through all the decisions that I needed to make. She was simply a pro at this and I could tell that from the very first phone call we had. I was shocked by what all the band is responsible for other than just playing music at the ceremony, the cocktail party, the reception and to the introducing the bridal party. She had it all under control and I had nothing to worry about the day of the wedding. I will never forget the day she told me a year ago to just leave the music and entertainment to her and that is what I did. Thanks for that great advice!! The skills of all the musicians and the voices of the singers were simply amazing! Thank you GPS for making my daughter’s wedding day the most spectacular event that I could have ever imagined.”
Marius and Jeanine own a “state of the art” recording studio and run an audio school, Audio Enginearing Institute, teaching audio engineering classes, audio-eng.com. Our gear has been built and assembled by two time GRAMMY Award Winning Recording Engineer, Marius Perron, who has a MS degree in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas and a BA in Geometry from Trinity University. Jeanine has a BS degree in Hospital Administration from Southwest Texas State University and manages every business detail.
For cocktail hour, we play MP3 music from our stage speakers, unless you hire an acoustic musician from our staff. During dinner, music is played at a low volume with slow to mid-tempo songs to accommodate conversations at the table. After formalities, WE turn up the volume and dancers immediately fill the dance floor. Entertainers interact with guests off-stage and encourage guests participation. GUNPOWDER SOUP started tambourines and crowd mics on the dance floor and we continue this client favorite.
