Wedding, Te Awa Winery

Hi Frances,

Thanks so much for coming out, everyone had a ball and you guys did an amazing job entertaining the guests.

I had so many compliments from all my wedding guests about Pulse Band, everyone was out on the dance floor, from young to old.  There were a few hoarse voices the next day from singing along!  The band went out of their way to try to perform all our requests, even from our rowdy Aussie guests (sorry guys).  I umed and ahed for a long time about getting a band but they totally made the atmosphere of the whole wedding and made for such a perfect day!  Highly recommend!

Thanks again.

Wedding, The Old Church

We had Pulse play at our wedding at The Old Church and they were amazing.  They had the dance floor packed all night and played the perfect mix of songs for the crowd.  Everyone who we talked to the next day had nothing but high praise.  I've played in cover bands for years and wouldn't recommend them if I didn't think they were top drawer.  They were also very accommodating with letting the family band do a few songs and gave me the mic to sing a few tunes later in the night.  Thank you so much for making our wedding even more amazing.

Cheers

Ben & Rach

 

Wedding, Linden Estate

We would like to say a huge thank you and that the band was amazing!  They had everyone up on the dance floor having a fantastic time.

We also appreciate how accommodating they were when we were running behind schedule.  All of the guests commented on how great they were and how they added a special touch to the end of our big day.

We will definitely be recommending Pulse to friends and family for future events.

Thanks again.

T&G Global Ltd Work Christmas Function, Ellwood Function Centre

Hi Fran

Your band were absolutely fabulous.  Our entire T&G team are buzzing today and raving about the music at the party last night.  Even many non-dancers were enticed out of their seats and onto the dance floor!

Our only regret is that we didn't ask you to play for longer, as 10.30pm was too early to finish. But, thank you for agreeing to play all the encores.

Thank you so much for a wonderful evening of entertainment.

Best regards,

Kristen Nash

 

Wedding, Te Awa Winery

We had Pulse play at our wedding and they were simply awesome!  We were a little nervous at first that the dance floor would end up slightly barren however it turned out that we had nothing to be nervous about.  With these guys playing I think anyone would find it hard not to get up and dance and they really did read the audience so well!

Pulse are not only a super tight, super awesome band but they're also wonderful to deal with and extremely professional.  To an;yone reading this that may be looking to hire a band we really could not recommend Pulse highly enough - they absolutely nailed the evening and really did bring another dimension to finish off what was an amazing day.

Thanks again guys,

Justin and Kerry

Thank you for making our wedding day extra awesome.  You guys were seriously amazing, we had so much fun.  All of our guests have been commenting on how fantastic the band was.  You sounded amazing, catered for all ages and had the whole group singing, everyone loved it!  We had a full dance floor every minute the band was playing and the evening ended with an encore.  It was everything we had hoped for and more.  We will be recommending you to all of our family, friends and anyone looking for a band.

A huge thank you.

Thank you and the band - they were so good about us running late and joined in with the team on having a few laughs until they could go on.

They were amazing!  We were blown away by the music and the professionalism of the guys.  The set music was incredible and just added to the overall atmosphere of our event.  We would highly recommend Pulse for any event and will most definitely keep them in mind for future events.

I recently had Pulse play for my 40th & I couldn't have been happier.  Right from the first point of contact which was prompt, professional & friendly to the most amazing night where they played the best music all night long with people constantly up dancing on the dance floor.  They were also very accommodating when my teenage daughter decided that she wanted to get up & sing with the band.  Pulse & their amazing music & song choice absolutely made the night of mine & my guests & I would highly recommend them to others & I look forward to having & hearing them again sometime.  Thanks again Pulse!

It is being hailed "the best party we've ever been to" by quite a few of our guests!!!  The guys are super friendly and the music was fantastic.  Great songs, and they had everyone dancing.  Would definitely recommend this band to anyone.  They made my party so memorable.

From set up to finish they were totally professional and all the songs were well known.

Thanks Pulse.  You guys rock!!

Joint 50th Birthday, Havelock North Private Address

We loved having Pulse play for our 50th party!  Lots of great music that we knew to sing to, and lots of dancing.  We had a great time.  And it was fabulous that the guys could tailor the volume of the band to the size of the venue.  We had lots of texts during the week about a great night.  I wouldn't hesitate recommending the guys for other events.

Thank you so much.  You made it a memorable 50th birthday.

The band were really great....my 23 year old daughter couldn't believe from the very first song to the last just about the whole hall danced!!  They made it a fun night and will definitely be recommending them.  The guys were great, actually for me organising the event you all have made that side of it very easy so thank you for that.  Anyone I've talked to have raved about the band.

Hi Frances, We had a fantastic day.  We received great comments about the band and the choice of music on the night.  It worked well with a good mix of old and new, fast and slow which got my brother up dancing (usually avoids the dance floor) and my 90 year grandmother up as well.

It was great to have you guys there and you made it all so easy from our first contact to the final dance of the night.

Thanks again.

2014 Air New Zealand Wine Awards, Pettigrew Arena, Napier

Team

I want to send my sincere thanks to you and your team for the mammoth effort made over the last weeks, and especially the last four days, to create and produce the 2014 Air New Zealand Wine Awards.

Without exception, every supplier on Saturday night met this standard.  The food, onscreen production, entertainment and the environment created all had their moments of brilliance.  Collectively, we met the brief and took the event to a new level.  Feedback from New Zealand Winegrowers is "Wow, outstanding, best awards ever", with CEO Philip Gregan describing the setting as 'magical'.

In our book, there isn't a better outcome, and in saying that we also recognise how that was achieved.

Please pass on our genuine thanks to everyone in your team.

Please pass on to the band our sincere thanks.

The Band were absolutely amazing and guests haven't stopped raving about them.  Everyone was up dancing by the second song which meant it was going to be a great night.  My Father in law has said he will seriously consider getting the band up to the Waikato when they next have a function!

Thanks again and we will recommend them to anyone wanting a great night in the Hawkes Bay.

Hi Frances,

Wanted to say thanks for Pulse playing at our wedding a few weeks back.  We had a great night and were so stoked to see everyone up dancing until the very last song. All our guests raved about how
great the band were. You guys played a perfect mix of oldies and new songs.
Thanks again!

Everyone I have spoken to loved the band.  The music was really up to date and
there was plenty of crowd interaction which was a good laugh.  I am not on
the committee next year but I will recommend Pulse very highly and expect that
they will want them again.

Trudi Connor

 

NZ Plant Protection Society Annual Conference, The Old Church

All the feedback I had on the band was very positive and most commented that you guys were the best band we had had at conference for many-a-year.  And personally I would back this.  Normally I would
expect a covers band to butcher a couple of songs during an evening and if you guys did, I didn’t notice it.

St Johns College & Sacred Heart College Ball, Napier War Memorial

Good Day Frances;

The Band’s performance on the night was magical. The band members are professional and have engaged their audience in a positive way. The music was great and so was setup and the structure of the presentation. I am happy that I have chosen ‘Pulse’ to entertain the Pupils of St Johns College and Sacred Heart College during their annual Ball.

Many Thanks

Wedding, Black Barn Winery

Hi Frances,

I for one, had the most fantastic time on Saturday night. I have never worked with a wedding band before (normally DJ's and Ipods are the go to source for weddings), however the atmosphere and energy from your band was just amazing.

I can speak for many of the guests who had spoken to me about the music and said that it was by far the best wedding they have been to so far.

What a great job you all did and I look forward to hopefully working with you again soon if at all possible.

Thank you and Kind Regards,

Dalline Leng, Event Planner (Luke & Zeenat's Wedding), www.fireflyeventsnz.com

Thanks so much to the guys for such an amazing night on Saturday! So many people commented after how awesome the band was and what a blast they had dancing the night away - I don't think there was one person who didn't get up on the d-floor. The music was perfect and I think mum wants to hold another party just so she can book Pulse again ;-)

You guys have been great to deal from the word go and we will definitely recommend your services to all of our friends. There is a reason why you guys have such a great reputation in Hawke's Bay and you definitely lived up to it this instance.

Hi guys,

The band was awesome! It really made the night and we got so many comments say how good you were!   

Thanks again,

Richard and Stacey

 

Wedding, Black Barn Winery

I just wanted to drop you an email (mainly because I still have no voice) asking you to let the boys know just how fantastic they played at our wedding at Black Barn on Sat night. We had an amazing day with perfect weather and no problems. It was a classy day where everyone was dressed up to the hilt.

But the truth is, it didnt really hit it's peak until Pulse started and the ties came off (along with some shirts) and the Van Morrison hits started rolling. You have now played at half a dozen of our family events over nearly 10 years and you continue to get the party pumping.
Wishing you all the best for the coming year.
Regards

The band was great, they played an excellent range of music that suited the wide range of our guests we had (7 years – 86 years).  I have to say it, the band topped the day.

Your songs sounded just as good as the originals.

Wedding, Hawkes Bay Opera House

We booked Pulse for our wedding reception after seeing them at a few different weddings. They did a great job at those weddings and we weren't disappointed at ours. The band set the mood for fun and dancing with some great tunes. Everyone was up and dancing even the wall flowers.

The band was really friendly and even took time out to congratulate to the bride and groom. They were really flexible and joined in the fun with our family. We have nothing but the highest praise for Pulse and recommend them for people looking for a great party band for their wedding reception. 


Kaaran and Michelle McCracken

 

Wedding, Marquee, Oruawharo Homestead, Takapau

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. We have had a lot of comments from our guests telling us how great the band was and we would especially like to thank you for singing our first dance song with 5 minutes notice!! For me it was awesome to see one of our friends who never dances stay on the D-Floor the whole night!! The music you played suited all ages and I loved that the band came in and set up during speeches without a sound!

We will definitely be recommending you to others looking for a band.

Thanks again,

Toni and Daniel Dooney

 

Wedding, Mission Estate

Hi Guys, 

A quick thank you for playing at our Wedding at the Mission on Saturday. 

We along with our guests were stoked with the incredible tunes you came up with. The set up was done quickly and professionally. No management of you guys required at all, everything was just sorted! 

We were especially happy with the way you presented and performed our wedding song. In all honesty, you as a band performed it to a higher standard than the original version. Both us and our guests were blown away. It was far more than we expected. 

As a group you have high standards, are great performers and would fit in at any venue. 

We would not hesitate to recommend Pulse Band to any of our friends. Thank you for your efforts and we'll see you at our next function! 

Regards,

Pulse were fantastic and got people out on the dance floor. Those dancing really let loose and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Heaps of our guests said how much they enjoyed the band and the dancing. We also really appreciated the fact they let Ollie (our young boy) play with them. He just loved that, as did the guests. Great fun.
Thanks,

North Island Mazda Pro7 Racing Association, Havelock North Club

We the North Island Mazda Pro7 racing Association recently employed the services of the band "PULSE" to play at our prizegiving evening which was held in Havelock North on Saturday 9 of June.

What a fantastic night we all had, and PULSE played a major roll in the success of the evening.

We would highly recommend "Pulse" to anyone who wants to organise a party where people get up and get dancing, and ultimately have a great memorable event.

These guys played all the music that everyone knows.

We would highly recommend "Pulse" to anyone planning on having a great night with good friends and great music!

Hi,

Thanks again,

Wedding, Sileni Estate

A huge thank you to Pulse for playing at our wedding. We had a fabulous time, we just wished the night carried on into the early hours of the morning. haha. Everyone mentioned how great the band was and they really get everyone up out of their seats dancing on the dance floor. The variety of songs that Pulse play caters for everyone's tastes also, so it gave everyone a chance to have a boogy to their favourites.
We had a fantastic day, everything ran really well. We wish that we could re-play the day and enjoy it all over again.
Again thank you so much for being apart of our special day and we will definitely recommend Pulse to any of our friends and family for any up-coming events.
Kind regards
Kerry


Wedding, Church Road Winery

You guys were fantastic.  really we couldn't thank-you enough for the excellent job you did at our wedding. Everyone commented the next day about the how good the band was and you even managed to get people up dancing who usually never budge from their seat. You guys were reliable, organised and a dream to work with. We booked you on a hunch and thankfully it all worked out and we would recommend Pulse Band any day.
Thanks guys.
Jules and Andrew
p.s There were alot of Hawkes Bay locals at our wedding and you certainly impressed so I hope you get some more work as a result.

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding! We've had so many great comments about you guys and we thought you played some awesome music - just what we wanted. You guys were easy to communicate with both before and during the big day, which made all the wedding organisation much easier!

21st, Marquee, Onga Onga

Just wanted to say thank you so much to all the guys for such a fantastic performance on Saturday night for our daughter's 21st. It was a mixed age group of parents, grandparents, uni kids and family. You struck just the right pitch and got the dancing going so the floor was packed and the atmosphere was pumping! As the night went on you changed the tone from old favs to current items as the kids got more and more into it and were able to adapt to their choices !! Lucky being in the country we had no noise restrictions….we thought the lights and stage set up worked really well, lead singer had a great voice and have some fabulous photos which we will send you a selection of….will definitely recommend you to others and if we get around to having another party will get in touch!
Regards
Bel Gunson.  PS Sarah says a big thank you, you made her night by making the party take-off!!=

 

Wedding, The Old Church

Thanks so much to the band, they were amazing!

All the guests really appreciated the 'last song', that was actually 4 songs long.

Nicole and I were blown away by the song the band learnt for us 'I'll Be', this was absolutely amazing to kick the night off.

Personal highlights for me was also 'Sweet child of mine' including full solos by the lead guitarist.

Thanks again, Sean Hamlin


Wedding, Hettinga Estate

Thanks so much for a massive night and learning our wedding song, it was
done perfectly. All the guests had a great time and the dance floor was
never empty. Your songlist is great with a choice for everyones taste. You
are a polished professional group, even when you got groped by the
bridesmaid you continued on unfazed. Sorry about that. Anyway keep it going
and we will definately recommend you to anyone.
Cheers, Yvonne and Brent


Joint 30th, Marquee, Hastings

AWESOME NIGHT! Largely due to the band's efforts! I've received loads and loads of comments over the last few days about how much my friends enjoyed the party and how amazing the band was. I can tell you, they have a bunch of new fans from Saturday night!

Can you please pass on a BIG thank you once again to Sean and the boys for making the night as good as it was. And thank them also for playing a little longer than expected, it's much appreciated! I'll definitely be recommending them to anyone who is looking for a band to hire. And when it comes time for me to get married, I'll be booking them again!

BIG thanks once again,

Jono Stone

“Just wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding recently. You were fantastic and kept the dance floor full the entire night! Everyone commented on how awesome you were. From beginning to end, you were extremely professional to deal with and we are very grateful for you helping make our wedding the best day ever!”

Thanks for everything J

Wedding, Cheval Room, Hastings Racecourse

The guys were AMAZING! and made our night just perfect! They were so good that I couldnt leave the dance floor - so if people wanted to talk to us they had to come and find us!!!
Having Pulse play at our wedding totally made our night! Right from the start they had everyone up on the dance floor (young and old) - and that's where everyone stayed all night. The break in between the two sets was well needed and gave everyone a chance to refuel before all the dancing and singing begun again! We have had had so many comments about the band and how impressed everyone was. Our 9 year old nephew was stoked when they played his song, and he got to sing along with the boys - he still had a beaming grin ear to ear the next day (and no doubt everyone at school on Monday heard about it too!) We would, and already have recommend to any up coming bridal couples to to secure a booking to have Pulse play at their reception, it is well worth every cent and will not be regretted!

Wedding, Clearview Winery

Just had to let you know how much we enjoyed & appreciate you guys playing for us on our wedding night, 18th march.

We have had so many people phone & email saying how much they enjoyed the night & the music ! we reckon there were as many sore muscles as sore heads the next day because people just had to dance!

Thanks very much once again for helping make our day fantastic!

Warm regards

Wedding, The Old Church 

We just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to Pulse for being such an awesome band at our wedding.  We have had so much amazing feedback about them and our dance floor on the night was continuously packed which really says it all.
The band read the crowd at our wedding perfectly and were so great with how they interacted with the guests and even let us get involved with a song or three! Thanks to Pulse the atmosphere was fantastic all night and we had the party of our life. Our guests are still raving about the band.
Would recommend to anyone and everyone!

Corinne and Mike King: Wedding, Brookfield Winery

 Hi guys, wanted to let you know we had amazing feedback from our guests. They all loved Pulse and had an awesome time, even my husband managed to pull out 3 caterpillars on the dance floor during the night! Thanks again, you guys did an amazing job and really read our crowd. Thanks also for playing the extra 3 songs our guests demanded much to the disgust of the woman in charge!

Can't thank you enough and have already recommended you to our friends!
Cheers, You guys rock

The staff had a fantastic time thanks to your band. I haven’t been to a do for years where every song played the dance floor is full! I would not hesitate in having Pulse play at other functions and have recommended you to other people since. Keep up the good work and job well done and worth every cent!

Brenden and Kerry Clark: Wedding, Mission Estate

We just wanted to extend out greatest thanks to you all for such a fantastic performance at our wedding on the 18th September at the Mission Estate.
The day was going just perfectly and when it was time for everyone to let there hair down the band certainly provided the best atmosphere for it which just topped the day off amazingly.
You guys were awesome and everybody has commented on how great you all were. The range of music was brilliant as we don't think anyone left the venue without having at least once dance.
Even the Aussies who we thought were going to be a tough crowd to please raved about it so cudos to you all.
The two things we were told as we were planning the wedding was to make sure we had good food and music and everyone would be happy. We certainly covered that. We can't recommend you highly enough and will be sure to pass on the good word about Pulse being the best band in Hawkes Bay.
Thank you all once again and don't stop doing what your doing. Its fantastic.
Kind regards
Brenden and Kerry Clark

Sorry this has taken so long but I wanted to tell you what an absolutely fabulous night we had on the 14th August for our 50th. The band was AWESOME!!!! and there were so many compliments for the band. The guys were so professional and of course the songs they played were an absolute hit. When I organised this party I knew that the success of the evening depended a lot on the music and WOW what a success. We enjoyed every minute of the band so please pass on our huge thanks for making our party so exceptional!!!!
Thank you

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the Pulse band for playing at our wedding reception on the 1/5/10. You did an absolutely fantastic job and were so enjoyable. I'm sorry i didn't get a chance to catch up with you on the night it just went so fast. We had many people asking about you on the night - very interested in remembering you for the future.
I also wanted to say thank you to Fran for all the arranging you did to make sure everything went smoothly.
Thank you once again.

I just wanted to say thank you very much to all of the band members for the awesome job that they did on Saturday night, and also the Op Shop song that they learnt especially for our first dance. It was great and we really appreciated it.
The guys created an awesome atmosphere and everyone was up dancing until the end which is what we wanted. We could not have asked for a better band.
I will definitely be recommending Pulse. You guys Rock.
Thanks again

EVENTS & MARKETING – The Old Church
During the summer months Pulse are just about a piece of the furniture here at The Old Church, playing at numerous weddings and other private functions. I am often asked whom I would recommend as a brilliant covers band and I can confidently give Pulses details to clients knowing that they wont be disappointed. Sean and the team are fantastic to deal with, nothing is ever a problem and they can be guaranteed to get all your guests up and grooving in no time.
I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for a brilliant covers band – and am looking forward to having them back again soon.

Wedding, The Old Church
Just wanted to say so much for playing at our wedding on thursday! You guys rocked!! And for reading the crowd so well and staying very late... always a good measure of a great wedding if the dance floor is never empty, and the bride dances all night and feels guity for not talking to everyone instead!
Thanks for being patient with my drunken sister too...
We will be spreading the word -
Sarah and Matt YOUNG

Wedding, Craggy Range Winery
We would like to say thank you to Pulse for playing at our wedding. It was such a special day for us and you really made sure that the guests stayed on the dance floor even though their tummy’s were full and they probably wanted to sit down for a sleep. You had the grace to play songs that were special to us, and chose songs that kept everyone dancing. The incredible skill you all have as musicians made sure our guests could not help but dance and enjoy themselves. We have had many comments both during and after the evening on how fantastic the band was and where did we find you.
I can whole heartedly say that we would recommend you for any wedding and would hire you again if we have a function in Hawkes Bay.
Best Wishes
Christina de Boer

Wedding, Te Awa Winery
I just wanted to thank you so much for playing at our wedding – Te Awa – 21st Feb. You guys were awesome…. We had such a good time and its all thanks to your band and the numbers you played.
Thank you for learning our song…. It was very well played and was such a great start to a night of great music! We know everyone enjoyed the music as I understand our best man extended your playing time with a ‘sweetner’!!! The setting was cool with the dry ice and lights, really felt like we were at a concert….and thank you for playing Kings of Leon like 4 times! Wicked!!
Will be recommending you guys to anyone having their wedding in the bay who want a cool band…. You rock!
Thanks so much,
Kate and Barry Boyden

Rural Directions B&S Ball, Hawkes Bay Showgrounds
When next year rolls around and Rural Directions is faced with organising a B&S style Ball for 600 people, one thing is for sure…Pulse will be there!!!
Rural Directions, a rural recruiting and HR company took the challenge of hosting the Saturday night entertainment at the Kelt Capital Horse of the Year Show in the first two-story marquee New Zealand has seen. The entertainment began with teams of shepherds showing casing their skills in a medley of events from mounted pony games, stock whip cracking through to mechanical bull riding – you name it they did it!
As the crowd cheered in support of their local teams while they battled it out for the title, Pulse took control of getting the party inside the marquee underway. Their ability to draw the crowd to the dance floor and keep them there was testament to the way Sean and the guys read the crowd and pitched their performance perfectly. It was great to work with a professional band who are excellent to work and communicate with and who deliver more than they promise.

Wedding, Marquee, Te Kaha
We thought Pulse were a fantastic band, they absolutely got the party going!! Not only were the oldies up there shaking their stuff, but the young were right in there with them! There was almost no room left on the dance floor!! Thanks so much guys for helping to make our wedding a party to remember! What was really awesome was they learned our first dance for us, not many bands will do that and it makes a huge difference. Not only are they a great band but they are really great guys to deal with, they travelled a long way to come and play for us. We would highly recommend going with Pulse, we can’t say enough good things about them. We had the time of our lives.
Cheers,
Vanessa & Ben Dickie

Wedding, Clifton Bay Café
I know we spoke to you on Saturday night, but thanks once again for a superb performance out at Clifton Bay. You gave us a great night.
Without any exaggeration - everyone we have seen since Saturday - have ALL made a comment on how great you guys were! And you were fantastic.
So I just wanted to pass on the positive feedback (cause that's always nice) and just to thank you once more.
Kind regards
Graeme and Gaylene

Sorry for the late reply returned home from Thailand on Saturday. Your guys band Pulse was absolutely amazing. People of all ages danced the night away and had a ball. Your relaxed laid-back approached was greatly recieved. We have had so many comments since the wedding raving the band. Thanks guys you top off what was a perfect and amazing day.
Cheers
Janelle and Hayden Hazlitt

Harry and Debi Jones
We had seen the band live at several gigs before, and were always impressed at their good solid performance of well known covers. Each band member is a truly likeable character, with a great sense of humour. Pleasing a crowd of widely differing ages at a wedding is not easy, and the entire day was a fairly stressful affair as it was..... So we called in the professionals, and they delivered, rocking us through to the wee smalls, and giving my wife and I some lovely memories. Lets face it.....whether we like it or not, people will judge your wedding (or any occasion for that matter) by two things: 1 - the food, and 2 - the Entertainment. We have no hesitation in recommending Pulse to anyone who wants a polished performance. Do yourself a favour, and hire some serious musicians.

New Zealand Sponsorship* Agency
To whom it may concern,
This reference goes out to Sean and the boys of Pulse who put on a performance and half at the inaugural Tui Force Back World Series in Mangatainoka. Our brief was to source a professional, classic rock band with energy that would "get the party started" and that's exactly what we got. Not only did they look the part, but the tight, solid sound they produced had the crowd amping for more. Our company manages many events and functions and it is imperative that you work with reliable contractors who are flexible and know their business. Pulse delivered on their promises and we found dealing with them an absolute pleasure. After working with the band and seeing these guys live I would have no hesitation in recommending them for private and/or corporate functions.

New Zealand Plant Protection Society
On behalf of the New Zealand Plant Protection Society I would like to thank you for your excellent performance at the conference dinner. The feedback that the Society's Committee received regarding your performance has been extremely complimentary. To be bale to get people of all age groups up on the dance floor and keep them there all night requires a lot of talent and insight.

The entire night was a great success and we would have no hesitation in recommending your band to perform at any future event.

T hank you once again
Sonja Reid
Secretary, NZPPS

Reignier School PTA Function
Thank you for making this event such a huge success not only for the committee but for out school. There was approximately 180 people who attended this function and the feed back was unanimous - everyone talked about what a great night was had by all and how much they enjoyed the music and your band. This was obvious with everyone continually being on the dance floor!

The committee commented on your band's professionalism and how great it was that you interacted with the crowd. you also catered for a wide range of music tastes and definitely played a huge part in this being a successful night.

The best recommendation we can give is that we would not hesitate to use your band again at any similar functions.

Once again thank you and we wish Pulse success.

Pauline Kluts
Secretary
Reignier School PTA Committee

Thank you so much for organising Pulse to play for our wedding. 


You were so prepared and helpful - you wouldn’t believe how much we appreciated it! As for Pulse, I was quite stressed up until the point when the band started, then I really felt able to relax and start enjoying myself! They were amazing – the meals and speeches etc caused a delay which the band members took in their stride, the play list was great and the quality of the band honestly was second to none.

We are still hearing comments about how “the band really made the night”, and I’ve also received phone calls from two couples who have since become engaged and were wanting Pulse’s details! (Which of course I handed on). Thanks so much Jason – please could you pass on our appreciation to the guys in Pulse also?

Thank you again Melissa and Darren

Hi Sean,

We have been meaning to email you and say thank you very much, you guys were great.
