Gunpowder Soup is the BEST!!! We hired them for our wedding reception this past Saturday at Luckenbach Dance Hall outside Fredericksburg, and they brought the PARTY! The band manager is so easy to work with, and accommodated all our requests…including our George Strait/Jon Pardi mash up first dance. They did an excellent job reading the crowd and adapted the playlist to keep the dance floor packed allllll night. One of the band members spent the entire night on the dance floor with us with a mic and guitar, rocking out and getting our friends involved. I could not have asked for a better band for our big night, and they were just so FUN! Central Texas, if you’re getting married, or having a party, or just want some amazing entertainment, HIRE THESE GUYS!!!

We selected Gunpowder Soup to perform and to entertain during the reception of Stephen and Morgan Whitmore on October 14th at Camp Lucy. They definitely put on a first class, five star performance. The song selection and the energy of the entire group had the dance floor hopping all night long. We have been told by many of the guests that Gunpowder Soup was the best wedding band ever. A special thanks to Jeanine for being so accommodating to us and working with us throughout the entire wedding process. You definitely surpassed all of our expectations!

“My husband found Gunpowder Soup while searching the web for a band. We saw the videos on youtube.com and decided to book them for our daughter’s upcoming wedding. We were a little nervous about hiring a band we had never really seen in person. On the day of the wedding, we were so happy to hear them play. The band is amazing! We had an awesome time the entire night. Our guests enjoyed dancing, singing and using their props. They did a fabulous job with the MC- ing all night long and getting the crowd involved. I would definitely hire them again for our next event. People are still talking about that night. Thank you Gunpowder Soup for an amazing job!”

Gunpowder Soup played at our son’s and daughter-in-law’s wedding this past weekend. The energy was exciting. We loved working with the group from the beginning until the end. They were professional and accommodating. A big thanks to Jeanne and Jayna for making it all happen! 10 stars!!!

The band was a great fit for my wedding. The singer has an amazing voice and they provided a lot of entertainment. They even stayed an extra hour since my family was having such a great time. The male singer was on the dance floor letting the crowd sing and was so delightful. The groom and I ran late so we were unable to hear a lot of the music, but they did great at livening up the party. Would recommend to anyone in the Hill Country. They work great outdoors too.

This band really knows how to party! We had them for our ceremony and the reception. The ceremony was classy and easy breezy, and the reception was awesome! We loved how they brought the mike to the dance floor for the guests to rock out and sing with the band. I didn’t know we had so many singers in our friends! They were lively, knowledgeable, and approachable. All the guests commented on how amazing the band was. The songs they played were perfect for my barn wedding on 4/8/2017, hip enough for the younger crowd to dance to and fun enough for everyone else to break into dances as well!

We recently had Gunpowder Soup play at our wedding reception and they were awesome!! Every guest at the wedding complimented us on the band, and they definitely kept the party going all night. The band is very personable, fun, energetic, and a breeze to work with. They even allowed my 5 year old niece to borrow the mic for a solo performance. I am so glad we hired Gunpowder Soup and cannot recommend them enough.

We had Gunpowder Soup play at our outdoor wedding in Leakey, TX at the Frio Pecan Farm. They were AWESOME! Everyone enjoyed them from our young guests to our older guests. I have had so many compliments about them. We loved how they came out on the dance floor and got the crowd involved. They were great to work with! I definitely recommend them!

Gunpowder Soup is absolutely amazing! We had them play at our wedding at Sisterdale Dancehall on June 4th. They played a wide variety of music and no one wanted to leave the dance floor. They had the microphone on the dance floor so people could sing a long and have a great time. They made all my dreams come true as to what my wedding should have been like. I would highly recommend them and I can’t wait to attend the next event they are playing at!

Best country band for my wedding…hands down! 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! I will hire you again when in need of a band.

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.

Gunpowder soup played at our Company Christmas Party. They are an awesome band! They played a variety of music and the sound was great! They did a great job keeping us entertained as the guitar player walked around the room handing out tambourines and cowbells while inviting the audience to sing along. The band manager was great to work with and the song selection was perfect! We will definitely keep Gunpowder Soup in mind for our next events.

Gunpowder Soup provided the entertainment for the 15th International Fragile X Conference Banquet dinner in San Antonio, June 23rd 2016… and Oh! Man! did they rock the house. Performing for a crowd of nearly 800, including nearly 150 individuals with Special Needs could very easily prove to be tricky, especially when many of our folks can easily be overstimulated by the sounds and the lights. The entire band navigated the evening perfectly. They were in sync with the crowd all night knowing when to bring the pace down and when to rock it out. We had so many people telling us how impressed they were with the band. Their crowd interaction was top notch, and even when a few people in the crowd may have gotten a little overzealous with the microphone, they handled it with professionalism and class. We could not have asked for a better experience.

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! Best Austin Wedding band there is!

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! Lori Bauml

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. Guests didn’t leave until the last song, they are still raving about how much fun they had with the band. The best wedding reception band..ever!  Thank you, Gunpowder Soup!

Gunpowder Soup is a wonderful band that is willing to work with you. They performed at the reception on our wedding in Boerne, Texas, and did a great job. They were professionally dressed, easy to work with, made all of our announcements throughout the night, kept the crowd entertained, and had great music!  Best wedding reception bands of all!!!! I strongly suggest using them as your band!
