Gunpowder Soup was fabulous! They played for my daughter’s wedding, and I am so glad she chose them. The band members are very talented and are great musicians. And, they get everyone involved in the music and dancing…from the youngest guests to the oldest. Their group made our reception extremely fun and memorable. I didn’t want the reception to end! The band was easy to work with also and very professional. I would highly recommend Gunpowder Soup for your wedding or event!

Holy cow…I cannot say enough good things about Gunpowder Soup! They made our reception a blast – from letting guests play tambourines and sing into the mic to letting my husband and I come up on stage to rock out to the last song! Our guests were asking us where we found this band throughout the evening and after the wedding. They truly made our reception a night to remember for both us and our guests! Great value and quality, too!

There is no better band for your event or wedding in the San Antonio area than Gunpowder Soup. They provided sound for the ceremony, soft music for dinner and kept the party going all night.

The KNOT Reviewed On 11/26/2015 Michele S

Gunpowder Soup is a fun and creative band. I had them perform for my wedding reception at Bella Springs Ranch. They had the guests up and dancing the whole time. Multiple times through out the night Marius came down into the audience with the mike and let the guests sing to the songs. They kept everyone up and on their feet laughing and dancing. I had multiple guests say that we had the best wedding reception they had ever been to and are still talking about it. I wholeheartedly believe it is because of this fun-loving group. I couldn’t have asked for a better band!


There is no better band in the San Antonio area for your event or wedding party! Gunpowder Soup professionals took care of the ceremony music, soft dinner music and gave us a reception party everyone is still raving about! Guests started singing along during dinner, even before the dancing began. Gunpowder Soup musicians are tops for getting the party going and keeping the guests rocking well into the night! THANK YOU, band members for an epic party!


Gunpowder Soup Band played at our wedding in Corpus and they did an AMAZING job! They were easy to work with and always got back to us right away. They were awesome! They had everyone dancing, singing, playing the tambourine and having a great time! They really involve the crowd and make sure everyone is having a wonderful time! Gunpowder Soup Band made our reception so much fun and brought a ton of energy!! We could not have asked for a better band for our wedding! Everyone had such a blast!!  I would  HIGHLY  RECOMMEND THEM!


We hired Gunpowder Soup to play at our wedding reception and let me just say that they were FANTASTIC!!!!!! I received numerous compliments on how great the band was and was repeatedly asked where on earth did I find them?!?! They created the party atmosphere that I was looking for, were very interactive with the crowd and encouraged people to sing solo or with the band. They did an outstanding job!!!!!!!!!!! 5 stars from this happy bride and groom.

The Knot Review  5/26/2015     CHESALON P.  BOSTON, MA

I asked Gunpowder  Soup to play a BBQ for our rehearsal dinner and then the cocktail hour the next day. Jeanine answered emails incredibly quickly and was more than helpful with all questions and requests. Our guests had a blast, but be warned – they will require you to sing and dance with them!


Deliciously Great Band…

Mar 03, 2015 by Dan Ahrens

Being products of the 1950’s my wife and I weren’t sure what to expect from this party band with the quirky name we hired to perform at our kids’ recent wedding in Corpus Christi. But Gunpowder Soup lived up to their billing and were a big hit with all our guests (which spanned several generations). Their ability to get everyone involved and use of surprise props made for a very enjoyable evening. Their music selections blended perfectly with choice selections the bridal couple had requested. It all made for a magical evening…five stars

Mrs. Ahrens’ Live Review


GOOGLE REVIEW  Albert DanceHall, La Donna Slaughter, 2014

“Great time. So many compliments from our wedding guests. Everyone loved the interaction the band provided with allowing our guests to play instruments and be a part of the band. They even put a microphone in the middle of the dance floor so everyone could sing along. Not alot of empty seats at the wedding which makes for great memories and pictures. As the bride I got my 15 minutes of fame and was the lead singer on stage. Loved it. The band is a great group of people. I consider Jeanine and Marius friends even though we have only met twice. Just those kind of good people having fun at what they do and doing a great job. If you need a well rounded, versatile, entertaining band this is a great choice. The band really makes or breaks the wedding at the end of the day and they know what they are doing. If no one is dancing or there is a lull they notice it and move on to something else. Highly recommended. Thanks Gunpowder Soup. Will hire you again when in need of a band.”


River Rock  Wedding

“My husband and I were fortunate enough to have Gunpowder Soup agree to perform at our wedding. They’d come highly recommended and, luckily, played country (my favorite) and oldies (my husband’s favorite). The band was approachable, allowed us to cater the play list to best suite our guests and even entertained my father and allowed him to play cowbell on a song or two. They allowed guests to join in on the microphones and came out from behind the stage to integrate with the crowd and enhance the overall experience. The guests loved it. We did too. As an added bonus, the band flawlessly edited our first dance song so that it wasn’t too long but the edits weren’t obvious. Their music was fantastic. We expected as much. Their flexible was astonishing. It couldn’t be replaced. The enthusiasm and crowd engagement turned an otherwise typical wedding dance into a topic of conversation. We couldn’t have made a better decision on hiring this group and would eagerly share our enthusiasm with brides and grooms to be.”  Jen Faulk

Kemmy Wedding Reception

“And then there was the band. Wow! Grammy Award-winning Sound Engineer Marius Perron and Gunpowder Soup were all the rage. Partygoers of all ages got their groove on and seemed to never leave the dance floor. They even invited my sister, a musician from Austin, to sit in and sing a few tunes with them; the bridal party took over the mic during another song and at one point Marius made me take the cow bell and beat it like crazy Will Ferrell on the famous Blue Oyster Cult Saturday Night Live skit.”  Terry Kemmy

“Gunpowder Soup was so amazing! Night before, I asked them to download 2 songs for the wedding and they did it without asking for an additional fee. 2 hours before the wedding, i asked them to download two more dance songs for the first dance and they did so without question!!! WOW… they DJ’d during the break for the kids to dance and they made everything so easy! They were so easy to work with and i would definitely hire them again for any party.”  Rebecca Hudson

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

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.

Camp Capers

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

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.

YELP REVIEW  10/31/2014   JIMI D.  Boerne, TX

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!


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.

Wimberley Frat Party

Apr 16, 2014 by jerry d fields
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!
