Pulse returns to Mixx Nightclub at 15th and Sumner in Allentown on
Friday, March 12. The fun starts at 9:00 pm. Sounds like a great
way to relax after aa hectic work week.

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).

Having a party? Hire Pulse to play and your friends will talk about
your party for months to come.

Pinnacle is the Lehigh Valley's premier Progressive Rock band. They
craft a big sound of accessible music. They have played at festivals
(Prog Day and ProgOctoberfest) and theaters (Crossroads in New
Brunswick, NJ; Forum in Metuchen, NJ), backed Nick D'Virgilio (Genesis,
Tears for Fears, Spock's Beard) in concert, shared the stage with
Riverside (Poland), Spock's Beard (California), and performed at The
New Jersey Proghouse concert series multiple times. Influences
include Kansas, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis, Beatles,
Marillion, Spock's Beard, Dixie Dregs, Steve Morse Band, Rush, and
others. The music is hook-based songs that include musical flights of
fancy that you can really sink your teeth into.
