  • Pulse set to play Eyemouth Golf Club Christmas Party Night 07 December 2014 | View comments

  • A fortunate set of circumstances alerted the band to the possibility of performing at Eyemouth Golf Club’s Christmas Party Night, on the 20th December – a rare public outing for the wedding and private party specialists.

    Guitarist, Chris Fairbairn of Berwick became aware of the free space, when his mum overheard in the hairdressers that the original band had pulled out of the gig!

    Pulse, a five-piece wedding and function band from the local area have been established for many years, having played dozens of weddings and parties.

    Chris said; “Having come to the end of a busy wedding season, performing across the North East and Scotland, we were fairly quiet, not really focusing on gigs – and just looking to record and practice.

    “Knowing the fantastic atmosphere at Eyemouth Golf Club, and also knowing the Bay View Restaurant manager, George, I phoned up on the off-chance that we could get the festive gig.

    “George seemed delighted, as he didn’t think he would be able to get our services, and he knows the band very well – agreeing straight away.

    “The guys are really looking forward to the gig – it’s nice to get a chance to play some of the Christmas tunes from the repertoire – they always go down a storm!”

    The party is open to the public, who can turn up later in the evening, or can book to enjoy a fabulous four-course meal.
