People may not remember the flowers, table swag, food, etc., but they do remember having a great time dancing and singing with GUNPOWDER SOUP!

We have been performing for weddings since 1999 and know the wedding business very well. The Band has 6 core members on stage and we can add a horn section upon request. Our audio engineer is a 2 times GRAMMY Award Winning recording engineer, so our sound is not overly loud and we run audio test before each reception.

GUN POWDER SOUP provides a lot of service for each wedding reception: corrdinating your itinerary, our fantastic sound quality, dynamic show lights, emcee for wedding customs, high quality musician and vocal talent, and professionalism above other band standards.

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.

Band of a lifetime for my daughters special day

Gunpowder Soup was the BEST decision I could have ever made in selecting entertainment for my daughter's wedding . Not only did Jayna sing at the ceremony, which was simply the best i have ever heard, but also Paul played guitar at the cocktail hour as our guest waited for the wedding party to arrive. Without a doubt the most amazing band to entertain our family and guest. Thank you Jeanine for everything! I will always be grateful to you and your band members. A PERFORMANCE I WILL NEVER FORGET!!

Incredible Band!!

GPS was incredible! I knew I wanted a band for my wedding and they were beyond what I had envisioned. My wedding planner, Always Blissful (Amy), recommended GPS and there were no regrets! I loved that GPS interacted with my guests and made sure the dance floor was always full! The tambourines and microphone was a huge hit! All my guests complimented GPS and asked where I found them. GPS helped make my wedding beyond special and memorable. I would definitely use them again!

GPS was the icing on the cake!

We hired GPS for my step-daughter's wedding outside under a tent at our place in the country near La Grange and they were fantastic. The energy level was amazing - the audience participation was so fun - the music was perfect for a beautiful night under the stars in July. They were responsive and easy to work with. Our friends still stop us and talk about how much fun they had at the wedding and GPS was an integral part of that! Thanks so much for helping to make Ashley's wedding perfect. And that lead singer Jayna is destined for greatness!
