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 definantly hire them again for any party

Gunpowder Soup was a great band who played recently for our convention in San Antonio. They had everyone up and dancing - so all had a good time! They "played" to our group and knew how to keep them on the dance floor.
