Duck Soup performs throughout the United States and has played other parts of the world as well. Affectionately known as “The Unofficial Band of the PGA Tour”, they’ve played for events ranging from weddings to presidential galas, as well as various stops on the PGA Tour.


One of the best party bands in the business!

With their strong vocals and incomparable devotion to their instruments, America’s premier party band has been entertaining party goers and wedding guests since 1984.

Duck Soup plays an incredibly wide range of musical genres that span generations from the forties to the present day. This dance band from Austin, Texas always entertains, “playing music that makes you feel like you’re back in high school.”

If your event or party is looking for great music and appeal, Duck Soup is for you. The band is very talented, and like all thoroughbreds, yearns to run.

USA Today

“On Saturday night… Robert (That’s Bob to you) Seger wed Juanita Dorricoft… Duck Soup, a band imported from Austin, Texas, provided rock and R&B classics … and displaying impressive chutzpah by cranking out Seger’s own “Old Time Rock ‘n’ Roll.”


Sports Illustrated

“Anybody on the Tour who wants to live his rock-and-roll dream will always be embraced by Duck Soup. The Austin-based, eight-piece ensemble—which proudly calls itself the unofficial band of the PGA Tour—entertains at a dozen regular Tour, Senior Tour, Nike Tour and LPGA events a year and recently cut an album titled Dead Solid Perfect, on which several Tour players, not to mention golf fanatic Willie Nelson, sang. In live performances Duck Soup provides a regular haven for frustrated singers Peter Jacobsen, Andrew Magee and Fuzzy Zoeller, guitarists Mark Lye and Larry Rinker, mouth harpist Payne Stewart and cowbell junkie Robert Gamez.”


The Washington Post

“The Armey’s did a quick twirl to “Brown-Eyed Girl,” but the Gingriches stayed on the floor for song after song — including a version of the Village People’s “YMCA, “complete with arm movements spelling out the letters.”


Austin American-Statesman

“Talk About A Hot Band’ Duck Soup played recently at the Michigan wedding of rock’n’roll star Bob Seger… [and] has played at so many Professional Golf Association tournaments that it’s known in golfing circles as the “unofficial” band of the PGA Tour, we hear.”


Houston Chronicle

“Austin’s own Duck Soup has performed at a number of tour events… So it should come as no surprise that the long awaited debut album by the group features vocals by some of the leading golfers on the PGA Tour, as well as country icon Willie Nelson.”

“Irwin has an expressive face, which he constantly contorts on stage. He is not averse to scratching his body like a monkey. He will make you laugh.”
