that people attend live music performances or else the clubs stop
hiring living, breathing musicians.

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).


We've been asked to contribute a track to Tuonen Tytär Volume 2 which
pays tribute to Progressive Rock of the '70s from Finland. Next week,
we will do the final mix to be sent in for this compilation to be
released on Musea Records.
