The reason people love Gunpowder Soup is because we are friendly.  We have fun performing and we like each other!
Gunpowder Soup is ONE band, not a business that incorporates many bands under one management.  The 5 members you see on stage are Gunpowder Soup.

We do our best to keep the price down!  Bushiness that run many bands must overcharge for their services.  We can charge you the high price and do everything but we are here to help.
