outdoors, and a lot of fun!

Pulse will be at the Maingate for their Bike Night on Tuesday,
August 12. Doors open at 6 pm and music starts at 7. It is important
that people attend live music performances or else the clubs stop
hiring living, breathing musicians. And you don't need to ride a
motorcycle to attend, either!

information about each club we play.

one band. This is no mean feat! This high caliber Classic Rock band
plays the music of Steely Dan, Santana, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Moody
Blues, Jethro Tull, Blues Brothers, 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),
and Billy Fenstermacher (drums and vocals).

Xeroid Entity will perform at the electro-music conference in
Kingsport, Tennessee. The festival is August 14, 15, and 16.

ProgDay is the longest running progressive music festival. Held in
Chapel Hill, North Carolina at Storybook Farm, this outdoor venue will
host two days of international acts August 30 and 31. On Sunday the
30th, Pinnacle is pleased to be the act at noon. Stay in a hotel or
go camping. It doesn't matter which you do just so long as you come
for a weekend of fun, sun, and music. has details.

On Friday, September 12, Pinnacle will open for Polish band Riverside.
Riverside will be playing at two music festivals in September and this
is their only non-festival show in North America this year. So catch
them while you can. Pinnacle will unveil some new music that night and
proceeds from this concert benefit the Metlar Bodine House Museum in
New Jersey. So while you're having fun, you can save history, too!

We've been asked to contribute a track to Tuonen Tytär Volume 2 which
pays tribute to Progressive Rock of the '70s from Finland. The final
mix has been sent in for this compilation to be released on Musea
Records later this year.
