Pulse REALLY would like to see you at every event but June 9 at Club
316 is shaping up to be a do-not-miss event! See you there at 8:00 pm

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).

Please mark Saturday, May 19 on your calendar when Pinnacle and a great
band called Advent will play a concert at the New Jersey Proghouse.
Advance Tickets will be available at The secret
cover tune that Pinnacle will play is mmphglsmphffrm. ;-)

Reactions to Meld, our latest CD, is overwhelmingly great! We think

Meld is now at iTunes! If you have iTunes on your computer, go to:

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

Meld 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.

Our first CD of five original tunes and one extra bonus surprise (after
all this time, is it still a surprise?) is available at our website 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
