Pinnacle with opening act Fear of Flying
$25 in advance on-line ONLY at
$30 at the door the day of the show... IF there are any left to be had. Seating
capacity is only 75!!

Pinnacle will play a concert in support of the release of its second CD "Meld"
on Saturday, March 25 at the New Jersey Proghouse! We're practicing our asses
off to play some very complex material that is faithful to, yet independent of
the CD. If the CD is half as good as we think it is, then you're going to be in
for a real treat when the CD is ready! Pre-order now because they're due to be
ready NEXT WEEK!!!

The CD was mastered at Star City Recording by Carl Cadden James (of InsideOut
recording group Shadow Gallery) under the supervision of legendary producer Jeff
Glixman (Kansas, Yngwie Malmsteen).

While you're web surfing, check out the Pinnacle web site at the NEW address: You can pre-order Meld there right now!

Our first CD of five original tunes and one extra bonus surprise is available
there and at CD Baby! Check it out at . You can
also see any member of the band to buy your very own copy of our first release
called "A Man's Reach..." We had fun putting it together and love the results.
We hope you will, too. You can read the CD's first public review at the
ProgGnosis web site:
Their database has an artist listing for us, too, at:

The next Pulse gig is scheduled for Saturday, July 22, starting 9:00 pm at the
Alburtis Rod and Gun Club. Don't worry. Now that we have a fine sounding demo
CD in hand, we'll be beating the bushes for more gigs before then! Meanwhile,
check out the new look at the website.

Former members of ShadowPlay, Strange Brew and the Critters have combined their
talents to form this high caliber Classic Rock band which features great dance
material as well as great listening music (ear candy!) by groups such as Steely
Dan, Santana, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, Jethro Tull, Blues Brothers,
Joe Cocker, Beatles, and other top shelf groups. The group includes Greg Van
Allen (guitars and vocals), Rod Gilkeson (vocals), Bob Ashmore (Keyboards), Bill
Fox (bass and vocals), Billy Fenstermacher (drums and vocals), and Rob Stewart
(guitars, percussion, and vocals).
