The Pulse is a superb group of musicians. Their performance far surpassed my expectations. Their repertoire was polished, but they were also easily able to handle requests and keep the crowd happy. Mike was easy to work with and flawlessly professional in his management of the wedding reception. The band developed a great rapport with their audience and showed that they really cared that we had a good time and that they wanted to create a memorable event for all of us. Without reservation, I would hire the Pulse again and I would recommend them to anyone looking for expert musicians. They handled everything beautifully.

Mike Martinez and The Pulse were outstanding with handling the music for our ceremony and playing at our reception! They were set up well in advance of our guests arriving at both locations. All of our music selections were played as requested. The bands performance was very professional and entertaining. Mike was excellent with handling the events (our arrival, cake cutting, bouquet and garter, father daughter/mother son dances, etc.) throughout the evening. Our guests really enjoyed themselves, dancing through the last song of the night. The Pulse is a great wedding band!

We are so happy to have found The Pulse. Mike was just so easy to work with. Their skill and sound was unbelievable and all real too. No fake-sounding, cheesy backing tracks. They do any type of music and even learned new songs for us. The PA, the lights, wireless mic, all of it was top notch. They made our wedding a huge success and our guests haven’t stopped raving about how great our band was. Everything was simply PERFECT. If you’re having any type of event, do yourself a favor and hire this band. You will be so glad you did. Thank you Mike! Thank you to The Pulse! Thank you Gigmasters!

The Pulse is the most amazing band I’ve ever seen! From the moment I met Mike, he made everything so easy. Their song list is huge. Mike offered stylized shows (Motown, Country, Classic Rock, etc.), but we opted for a variety show. Mike worked with me up until the day of the event. They even learned songs just for our party at no extra charge. The Pulse were not only the ultimate professionals, they were also so much fun! They played hits from all decades and all categories. We had guests ranging in age from 6 to 73 and everyone danced all night. Their sound is superb! So talented! We’ve used other bands before, but this is the only band we’ll use from now on.

We had no experience in hiring a band, but wanted one for my husband's 40th birthday celebration. The Pulse made the process easy. They were professional and made the process easy. The event went off without a hitch, and all of our guests had a great time. I especially liked that they played DJ music between sets to keep the party going while they took a break. The colored light show was an added bonus. We loved their sound and will hire them again for future events! Thanks!

Janelle and Craig, For not having any experience dealing with Bands, you sure gave us some red carpet treatment. We enjoyed you and your crowd so much and we're really looking forward to doing another event with you soon! Warmest regards, The Pulse

The Pulse was FANTASTIC!! They can play everything, which is exactly what we wanted for our wedding reception. They're the only band we could find that can perform a variety of music. We wanted oldies, Motown, and R&B for the older crowd earlier in the night, and then classic, 80's, 90's and modern rock and pop music later in the night for the younger crowd, and this band does ALL these styles PHENOMENALLY!! The plan was perfect thanks to this band: parents & grandparents were living it up the first half of the reception, and our friends, siblings and cousins were jumping around to "All the Small Things" by the end. I honestly couldn't recommend them more!!

We had The Pulse play at our wedding and they were amazing. So very accommodating and professional from day 1. Classical guitar and piano were played before and during the ceremony, softer music during dinner and then more dance music for the remainder of the night. The evening could not have gone better. Thank you so much! I would highly recommend The Pulse and would use them again for future parties.

I cannot thank you enough for the great evening you provided my wife and I for our wedding at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club. I quickly realized we were not just dealing with any band. Mike was extremely accommodating and put my wife and I at ease. He was accessible for any changes including right up to the week before the wedding. Words cannot say enough about how thrilled we were with their performance throughout the entire evening. Every guest raved about the entertainment, and I have never seen so many family and friends dance for an entire evening. Once they began to play, the dance floor was never left empty. Thank you for everything, Daniel & Alda Stahl

You could not ask for a better group to perform at your next event. Not only was The Pulse one of the most talented bands I have seen for wedding/birthday events, but they accomodated all special requests and managed the entire process with professionalism and courtesy. The band members walked me thru all of the necessary details and was willing to make my event the best I have ever attended. You would have thought that my event was the only event that The Pulse played, or will play this year. Not one guest did not say that this was the best band they had ever experienced. Highly recommended!!
