The Pulsators have been ripping it up, tearing it down and rocking the house for decades. This is a band that truly loves what they do.
The Pulsators own brand of original music has been described as 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.”
The band consists of:
Johnny Campbell: lead vocals and drums
Doug McKenzie: guitar
Mick Whittington: bass
Rick Clifford: saxophone
Glenn Sullivan: trumpet
John Farey: keyboards and trombone
Johnny Campbell handles most of the lead singing chores enhanced by powerful background vocal ensemble work featuring every member of the band. They have a sound that’s all their own, a combination of many influences that produces a blend both unique and familiar. If you want to dance and party to some authentic “feel good” music, the Pulsators are the band for you. Legendary keyboardist Art Neville said upon hearing their live album: “I’ve known these guys a long time and I always knew they had it in them. They’re cold blooded and throwin’ bricks, they’re a great band!” This rock n’ roll pioneer should know, he’s one of New Orleans finest musicians and a founding member of the Meters.
Their repertoire is centered around their self-penned songs but they also like to throw in a few favorites by other artists such as Jimmy Reed, Huey ”Piano” Smith, Dandy Livingston and The Meters. The guys pepper their performances with gems from the Blues, Reggae, Ska and Rhythm and Blues genres. A longtime favorite of fans on their home turf and winners of three Press Democrat Reader’s Choice Awards, the band has played extensively from California to Louisiana. They are renown for being a consistent and
dependable crowd pleaser.
The Pulsators have 3 CDs available consisting of all original music: “The Pulsators”, “Here’s To You”, “Can’t Put You Down” as well as their 4th and latest “The Pulsators LIVE”. The latter was recorded at Sonoma County’s Last Day Saloon and confirms what their many devoted fans will testify: the Pulsators are one of the best live
Writer Phil Resh said of their music: “It’s a combination of ‘make your feet move’ dance music, great grooves
and soulful harmonies with a lot of tasteful horns” (Enjoy Magazine, June 2012)) .
