100% Attention to Details
Gunpowder Soup will communicate with technical directors, electricians, and event planners before arriving to the venue. The itinerary will be discussed in detail through email or conference calls in order to ensure a perfectly timed musical show. In-ear monitors and talk-back mics are used to communicate between members on song selection and announcements. The Band manager will monitor dancers and crowd participation for deciding the next hit song. Most songs are played back to back and announcements will be timed perfectly.
Line Dance Instructions
Gunpowder Soup’s in-house line dance instructor will instruct the crowd on “Copperhead Road”, “Boot Scootin’ Boogie”, and “Footloose” before the band performs the song live. The instructor will take around 15 minutes to teach each dance before taking the stage to perform.
Variety of Fun
Gunpowder Soup will step off the stage and interact with dancers and singers to create an energetic party. The Band welcomes guests to sing along on the mic, lead a train, and play tambourine.
If your party theme is country, the Band will dress in boots, jeans, western shirt, and country skirts. If the gala is formal, Gunpowder Soup will dress in black slacks, cocktail dresses, and black blazers. Tell the Band your party theme and they will dress along with you.

December 2016 Rush Enterprise, Kim Valdez, TX
this band is awesome! They played to the crowd and were very accommodating when we asked to extend for one more hour over our contract! We had so much fun dancing the night away. 😉

Gunpowder Soup performed at our University of Oregon tailgate at the Alamo Bowl. The weather was terrible, but their great music, terrific interaction with guests and fun song selection really made the party. They were super flexible, easy to work with and had a great attitude under tough outdoor circumstances. We received numerous comments from our guests about how much they loved the band. We did too and will definitely hire them next time we are in San Antonio.

MiTek USA Customer Appreciation Dinner★★★★★ (FIVE STARS)
“Gunpowder Soup is an excellent band! I cannot say enough good things about them. I started working with them a few months before my company event in San Antonio this October. Jeanine is wonderful to work with when setting up an event! She is professional and has great ideas for songs on their set list will work for your event. Our company is based in St. Louis and she made me feel so comfortable with the process even though I did not meet her until the actual day of the event. I cannot say enough about what great musicians this band has. Their sound is perfect, all of their voices are fantastic, and their harmonies are beautiful. And to top it all off they are very generous in sharing the stage. I sing with a band here in St. Louis and from the beginning I was encouraged to sing with the band. I had a blast! Such a great band to work with and to play with. I HIGHLY recommend Gunpowder Soup for your wedding or corporate event. If my company ever holds another event in San Antonio I will definitely be hiring Gunpowder Soup again! ”- Denise Turner
Military Warriors Support Foundation
“Our event was a fundraiser for The Military Warriors Support Foundation and we hired Gun Powder Soup as our band. They were amazing! Not only were they a great band that played several different genres but they were the coolest people! We had them set up outside and of course facing the direction of the sun coming down… They didn’t complain once! They all just put on their sunglasses and put on a great show! They really got the crowd involved in their performance by having me play the cow bell, my husband and I to sing as we’ll as our friends! Everyone loved that! Gun Powder Soup is a fantastic band!” T.Leer
San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo
Thank you for performing at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo. Your band was fun, interactive, and a pleasure to have at our event. I appreciate the crowd interaction and felt that the music performed offered a broad appeal to our audiences. We wish you continued success in 2015! Mar 11, 2015 by Trisha Fitzgerald
Dear Jeanine, “Thanks once again for making our surprise dance such a memorable hit at Camp Capers. I’m not sure I’ll be helping lead a camp session next summer, but if I do, and if we bring in a band, I sure hope it will be Gunpowder Soup. I hope the rest of the summer passes slowly and peacefully, and that all your gigs are indoors for awhile! We hired Gunpowder Soup for a surprise dance at a Senior High camp session at Camp Capers in the Hill Country. The band was very easy to work with and flexible, happy to coordinate with our set-up people and our particular setting. Musically, they were outstanding, playing a great mix of older and newer country and rock, from George Strait to “The Locomotion” to AC/DC. And 70s disco, too. Even better, for us, was the band’s easy and gracious manner with our high school campers and the college-age staff. The band was definitely attuned to what would get them up and moving. They also welcomed campers and staff on stage to assist with songs, from lead and backing vocals, to (of course!) more cowbell. They even shared the spotlight with one talented but nervous camper who got on stage with her guitar and sang, backed by the full band. Beautiful! It was a magical July night. Gunpowder Soup was talented, professional, easy-going and lots of fun. They were a big hit with the young people and the “oldertimers,” alike. I wouldn’t hesitate to call on them again.” The Rt. Rev. David Reed, Bishop Suffragan, Episcopal Diocese of West Texas

Gunpowder Soup played just what we needed at our 15th Annual Winter Gala, and the crowd loved them…it was great to see so many people get out and enjoy themselves on the dance floor! The patrons really enjoyed your singer coming out on the floor and interacting with them! A great night for our school!

We had this band play at our ranch party a couple of weeks ago, and all I can say is fabulous! They helped carry the entire night along and the music progressed as the party did. They were wonderful with getting the crowd involved and getting them up and dancing. I would highly recommend this band and would look forward to having them play at my next party!

We had an awesome time with the band. They are fun and know how to entertain!. Their equipment is also top notch and the singers were very very good. Can’t go wrong with them. If we have another event, we will be repeat customers for sure.

We used Gunpowder Soup for a Halloween party this past October. The party was fun but once the band started up, the party ROCKED!!! They played such FUN dancing songs and such a variety!! Their interaction with the audience is great! I can’t wait to have another party so I can hire them. If you’re looking for a lively, energetic band-Gunpowder Soup will not disappoint!
8/10/2015 KELLIE J, SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS
We’ve heard Gunpowder Soup on a number of occasions and they never fail to meet our expectations for an evening of fun entertainment! They play a great variety in their set lists, depending on the event. We have loved 2-stepping to their country music, and enjoyed line dancing, and “boogie-ing” to songs like Play That Funky Music, Love Shack, and Uptown Funk! They are great vocalists and entertainers who make the evening fun, lively, and interactive. I highly recommend Gunpowder Soup!! 🙂

Super — Good — Time!
I do a few events a year and have now twice hired Gunpowder Soup as the entertainment. The first event was a benefit that my wife put on last year. She liked them so much that we went ahead and booked them for our wedding reception. They do a great job of keeping a smooth flow through the events. They keep the mood fun, energetic, and vivid.
I would recommend them in a heartbeat.
City Of Shertz Texas, 4th July Jubilee, 2015
Gunpowder Soup Band played the 2015 Schertz Jubilee celebration July 4; great music, great vocals. A special request was made of the band to sing the National Anthem before the scheduled Fireworks show…beautifully done.
Wimberley Frat Party

I just had Gun Powder Soup play a fraternity party at my home in Wimberley. Wow, what a band! Their selection of country music was great, and everyone really enjoyed them. Keep in mind that I am of the 60’s generation and I was entertaining college students in their 20’s, but the music fit us both. They arrived on time, played their hearts out and even helped in the kitchen during a break for dinner. My neighbor stopped me on the way to church and said, “I really like the music coming from you home last night”!Great band, great people, and great music!
“Gunpowder Soup was perfect for my wife’s surprise 50th birthday party at the River Rock Events Center. At the end of the evening, I wrote them a check for $200 extra – as a tip!”
