Initial reactions to Meld, our new CD, is overwhelmingly great! We
think you're in for a real treat when you buy the CD! Order now
because THEY'RE HERE!!!

WLVR, WDIY/WXLV, and WMUH are already playing tracks from Meld as well
as many internet radio stations!!!!!

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). The cover
art was done by Martin Kornick who has done covers for Emerson, Lake &
Palmer, Transatlantic, and the mighty Spock's Beard.

While you're web surfing, check out the Pinnacle web site at the NEW
address: You can order Meld there right now!
You can also buy the CD (and our first one, too) at CD Baby.

Our first CD of five original tunes and one extra bonus surprise is
available there and at CD Baby! 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 still love the results.
Check it out at

Pulse returns to Club 316 on October 28 for their Halloween party.
Fun, prizes, costumes!

In November, Pulse has its debut at The Classic Rock and Roll Café on
the 4th and returns to the Alburtis Rod and Gun Club on the 18th. In
December, Pulse returns to The Classic Rock and Roll Café on the 2nd.

PULSE plays at the level of a tribute band without specializing on any
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).

The Municipal Band of Allentown has completed its summer concert
series. Look here soon for information about the Holiday Dinner
Concert in early December.


Xeroid Entity is an electronic music ensemble consisting of Howard
Moscovitz, Greg Waltzer, and Bill Fox. Our debut CD is called "Moons
of Saturn" and is available at We've

released some of it on our second CD, "Live at the Deer Head Inn."
