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, prepare special dances and song list, and calibrate our speakers for each show.
For cocktail hour, we will play background MP3 music. During dinner, Gunpowder Soup will play MP3 music or softer songs from our repertoire list. 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.
If your wedding ceremony is located on the grounds of the reception venue, there is no need to hire another wedding ceremony vocalist & musician when our team is already on site. Our professional team members have been performing wedding ceremonies for years, so strike that job off your list! Our wedding specialist will play acoustic music for prelude, sing for processional, bride’s entrance, and the recessional.
Other Wedding services Gunpowder Soup offers:
Wireless lavalier mic clip for the officiant
Reader’s mic on a stand
Monitor MP3 music for the ceremony
We engage guests right away and start the party quickly. You will become our friend at the end of the night! We are the Band that started interacting with guests back in 1999 and have performed over 750 weddings! 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”. 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 listening and dance music!
Read our reviews and watch our videos, you will see why we are the best Texas wedding band for your big day!
“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!”
