Renee and Gerry at Pulse 8 comprRenee and Gerry performing as a duo at Pulse 8.
Both sing lead, backing and harmony vocals to high quality backing tracks with Gerry on either acoustic or electric guitar.
They can perform completely acoustically for the more intimate venues and occasions.
As well as their long list of prestigious clients, they have held residencies at The Hilton Hotels in Park Lane, Olympia, Watford and Bracknell.
An excellent choice for smaller venues and budgets.
When performing as a trio, their keyboard player joins them using drum machine and excellent brass, bass and piano sounds on keyboard.
They too, have an excellent client list and have held residencies at Littlecote House Hotel for Warner-Leisure and aboard The Val de Loire for Brittany Ferries.
Perfect for those clients who require a little more than a duo but cannot accommodate a full band.

Everybody had a great night and were very complimentary about the music you provided. You managed to read the mood perfectly and adapt your set to suit. Truly professional, and you are all such lovely people. Thank you so much once again, and we look forward to booking you for our next ladies night.
    All the very best
