The Pulsator’s brand of music has been described as California Gumbo, a spicy mix of hard driving Rockin’ Rhythm and Blues, New Orleans style funk and Rock Steady Reggae with a steady dose of the blues thrown in. That’s a mouth full, but it’s tasty and goes down easy.
Consisting of Johnny Campbell on vocals and drums, Doug McKenzie on guitar, Mick Whittington on bass, Rick Clifford on saxophone, Glenn Sullivan on trumpet, and John Farey on keyboards, their repertoire features self-penned songs, and also a few of their favorites by other artists.
The Pulsators have a straightforward yet rough and tumble sound, one that blends many influences in a way that is both unique and familiar. If you want to dance and party to a rootsy mixture of feel-good music, the Pulsators are the band for you.
Here’s how fans describe the heart and soul of the band, starting with the Press Democrat:
“Although the band is best-known close to home, it’s still packing the house at venues all over the North Bay and are admired for volunteering to play benefit shows whenever local musicians need help with medical costs or other crises, the band enjoys a sterling reputation among leaders of the local music scene.”
“This band continuously puts out quality music with the same commitment they had when they started. With their dedication to making music that matters, combined with an infectious dance beat, their audience will continue to grow” said Bill Bowker, adding
“Great music and dedication to the community are why The Pulsators are such an enduring band” said concert producer and music educator Jim “Mr. Music” Corbett. “It is not a simple task to keep a band together for even five years, much less 30 years. Under the direction of Johnny Campbell, the group not only survived, but thrived.”
“The Pulsators are cold blooded and throwin’ bricks, they’re a great band!” – Art Neville
The band has played extensively from California to Louisiana and is known for being a consistent and dependable crowd pleaser. As Phil Reser said: “It’s a combination of ‘make your feet move’ dance music, great grooves and soulful harmonies with a lot of tasteful horns.”
The public likes them, too. The Pulsators have repeatedly won local popularity polls, including three Press Democrat Readers’ Choice awards.
And with the success of their latest record “Let’s Play” the band is looking forward to working on a new recording in the near future to accompany their previous releases: “The Pulsators”, “Here’s To You”, “Can’t Put You Down” plus the Pulsators “LIVE” which proves that what many people say is true. The Pulsators are one of the best live acts around.
