Pulse will hit Quakertown for the first time on Thursday, June 21, at
Montana West for Bike Night. It'll be a blast! We kick off at 7:00 pm
so get there on time, enjoy a full evening with Pulse, and be in bed at
a reasonable hour!

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 plan to join the band this summer for free outdoor concerts.
The first concert on May 20 at West Park in Allentown was rained out.
The replacement date is July 1.

Meanwhile, the next dates on the schedule will be on June 23 at Good
Shepherd and on June 24 at Allentown's West Park.

Pinnacle will be playing a benefit concert on July 7 (07/07/07). The
H.O.P.E. Concert features music from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm. We go on at
8:30 pm with a striped down, lean and mean, no frills, power trio line-
up of guitar, bass, and drums! The headliers are Daria (World Music)
and Jackie Tice (Singer Songwriter). The concert will be at The Forté
Building in South Bethlehem. For information, call 484-892-4120 or

Read the latest Meld review atProGGnosis:

"[Pinnacle] are able to competently infuse their obvious influences
with a good degree of originality..."
- MJBrady

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
