Fronted by four of LA's most sought after singers, Impulse takes their audience on a concert like tour through genres spanning the last six decades... Whether it's Queen, Journey, Michael Jackson, and Frank Sinatra, or Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and the Black Eyed Peas, you'll wonder how they did that and beg for more.
Collectively, the members of Impulse have toured all through Europe, Africa, Asia and South America and have recorded and shared the stage with such legendary performers as Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Prince, Boys II Men, Natalie Cole, Babyface, David Foster, Seal, Christina Aguilera, Brian Setzer, and Ringo Star. Credits include the The Emmy's Governors Ball, The Academy Awards Ball, Oprah Winfrey, and Vice President Al Gore just to name a few.

There are no words to describe amazing the band was. The combination w Impulse & The New Classics was over the top. "Best wedding band I have ever seen " was the constant comment and these kids are at a wedding every week hearing the same songs and bands (probably most from you). It felt fresh, fun, and right for the group. The crowd didn't stop , the band didn't stop , the additional pieces were off the charts and made the evening.
Jim was there. I think I saw him dancing. You couldn't help it. I think the additional singers and Impulse gave it an even more modern coolness. The girl singer was incredible beautiful. They were amazing and made the night.
With gratitude and sore feet,
Lynn Williams (MOB)
I wanted to thank each & every one of you for making Hanna+ Mark’s “Big 120” such an incredible event.
I spoke with Hanna earlier, and she was super happy with everything. We also received amazing feedback from all of the guests!
It was a pleasure to partner with each of you on this event. I truly look forward to the next time when we can do it again!
All the best,
I think my Mom hit all of the points but I just wanted to chime in and say thank you SOOO much for the amazing party. Everyone was incredible to work with and so accommodating and worked so hard to make the night so special. The only thing getting me through the summer is knowing I have two friends' weddings where Impulse is the band so I get to rock out with them all again! Thanks again.
Renee Gilbert (MOB) & Lindsey Gilbert (Bride)
As always - absolute perfection!

Amazing, as always Jim. It is a pleasure to work with such a group of nice and professional people. We love having them here and our members enjoyed it very much. Everything was so perfect.
Thank you , thank you !!
Patricia Armenta (Planner)
It was amazing!
All of the musicians were perfect. Home run.
Everything went really great! Everyone seemed to enjoy the band! Impulse was a perfect fit for the Gramberg wedding. The sound was great and the guests were on the floor dancing all the way up until the last song!
Alissa Hussey (Planner)
I wanted to thank you and your entire team for delivering spectacular performance. Everyone is complimenting us on your work and Amanda and Patrick loved the music. You made the wedding and reception very special. I hope we weren't too difficult to work with :).
By the way, we saw you hamming it up on the drums!!
Alan and Raquel.
Thank you so much for helping to make the 2016 Ball so fantastic. I wish you could hear all of the calls and read all of the emails that we have been receiving. According to all, “the band was THE BEST EVER!!!!” You and your teams – each and every one of them – were amazing. Everyone was gracious, kind, professional, patience, and of very good humor. I am genuinely appreciative to all of you for making The Huntington shine.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, from the Fellows Staff, Pamela, Emily and Abby.
We wanted to write and say thank you for such an amazing experience at our wedding. Our friends and family cannot stop talking about Impulse. Everyone had the best time and they (and we) were happy and dancing all night. We were blown away hearing the songs they learned for us. Thank you for working with us and please pass along our thanks to the band. They are truly one of a kind.
Rosie & Derick
Words cannot even begin to describe how INCREDIBLE Impulse was. They truly exceeded our expectations in every way. Suffice to say, they made our wedding! They were able to read the crowd well and chose songs to keep the energy up and the dance floor full. The entire night, guests were coming up to us and telling us how much they loved the band, and the rave reviews continued well into the next day. Our only regret is that we didn't get a picture with the amazing band who helped to make our special day truly epic.
Thank you so much!! The ENTIRE West Coast Team was fabulous to work with - please pass along our gratitude and appreciation to all!
Carol and Benny
Will you please give Impulse a huge THANK YOU from Matt and I, and from our family and friends. They were out of this world amazing!!!!! Matt and I danced for 4 hours straight.... I didn't even get to say hi to some of our guests because we didn't want to leave the dance floor. Every song was better than the last. I have had multiple people ask who our band was, they were unbelievable and I can't thank them enough for creating the best dance party ever. Thank you so so so much!!!!! Xo
Connie Peterson (Bride)
Jim, I first want you to know how super awesome Impulse was on Saturday. What an awesome band--they have to be one of your best. Rudy is always so accommodating and such talented singers/musicians. I loved working with them.
Liz Brown (planner)
I wanted to write to all of you and thank you so much for everything on Sunday!! You all were truly amazing to work with from start to finish. The process was so efficient and smooth and your level of professionalism on the day of the wedding was unlike anything I have ever encountered.
The client is also OVER THE MOON about the performances and truly loved everything. They danced all night long until the very last song!! Impulse was truly the icing on the cake of the weekend and took the actual Wedding Reception over the top!
THANK YOU THANK YOU for everything!!
I hope that we get to work together again very soon!
Just wanted to send you a humongous thank you for your flexibility yesterday! The band was AMAZING (half of Impulse still makes me twice as happy!), everyone could not stop talking about how good they were and the Paris contingent were convinced we’d hired celebrities of some form (I heard so many times “I think that one was a contestant on The Voice”).
They were so fantastic! We only have rave reviews from our guests and Todd and I were so pleased with the great energy and talent they brought to our wedding.
Thanks for everything!
Jessica Ritt (Bride)
We were very pleased with their performance, everyone raved about them.
Please tell Jim thank you for us.
They are the BEST! No exaggeration, they are our favorite band hands down. They look and sound amazing, their energy is unsurpassed and Rudy and the team are so easy to work with! We can’t wait to have them back!
Ryan Mausner (planner)
I've been a professional wedding planner since 1991 and have been working with West Coast Music since 1999. I LOVED the Impulse Band and the pre-planning professionalism of West Coast Music. They maybe on the higher end in price but the outcome and energy that prevails throughout the party was beyond my expectations. They sound just as great as the original artists.
Mary Dann Events
The music Saturday night was flawless! Impulse was absolutely fantastic. I cannot tell you how many people (everyone!) commented on how fantastic the band was. There was not a lull or a glitch. It was an energetic and fun party with continuous dancing. Thank you, thank you. We had an amazing event that we will never forget.
"The best part was definitely the band Impulse. I never even tasted the cake which I heard was absolutely delicious because I was scared that I would miss a dance. They were absolutely the best! Everyone said it was the best wedding that had ever been to."
Last night was fabulous! Thank you, Ryan and the entire WCM team. We look forward to working with you again soon:-) I just received the email below from my client (clearly the entertainment was the hit of the night)!
I guess if you want the best you work with the best. Absolutely made my job the easiest, and I got all the credit! You and the whole team did a wonderful job on everything! The whole event was superb, and the music flow and build up for the night was outrageous, so much more than I expected! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
See you very soon!

Impulse rocked the house! They were awesome and the client’s loved them! It was definitely a dance party!
Impulse unequivocally made our night!!! Our family couldn't stop dancing, and our guests kept repeating this was the most exuberant, fun wedding they had ever been too! Of course, half the time they even forgot a band was playing (in the best way possible!) We feel so fortunate that Impulse was available to play at our wedding. They're happy energy, flexibility, professionalism, and willingness to learn our first dance made the evening so special. I highly doubt Impulse, or West Coast Music for that matter, need recommendations, but we will certainly mention no other name should friends and family be looking for big time entertainment! Thank you for the phenomenally memorable evening!!!
All the best,
Elana and Brandon
They were AMAZING, INCREDIBLE and OUTSTANDING!!! Will definelty recommend them to all of my clients and friends for future events.
Thank you for checking in. The band Impulse was absolutely amazing. Such a wonderful group of people who love what they do.
It was a delight working with the talented Rudy!
"We wanted to personally thank you for the amazing performance that Impulse gave at Kali & Jonathan’s wedding! They were absolutely perfect. The client was so happy and everyone was dancing away! Thank you for helping us make this wedding such a huge success. We can’t wait to work with you again very soon!"
They were fantastic. BEST dance response in the past 6 years. Tons of compliments!
(Side Effect, Opera Trio)
"Impulse Band was the most amazing band in the world!!! They were absolutely wonderful!! So much talent, great voices, awesome dancing, excellent timing and reading of the crowd. The Hora was phenomenal!! Our guests never left the dance floor!! I wish I could hear them again."
Beyond expectations. The timing, song selection and energy Impulse had was flawless. It was the perfect edition to an amazing night. Everyone was dancing and having a great time. Crush was a great addition as well. I will contact Jim direct when I get back from the honeymoon to personally thank him for everything.
Thanks again everyone,
The bands blew my mind. Crush was amazing. Every woman and girl was on the dance floor as though it were a concert. Everyone is still talking about the music. Please tell the members of the bands that we are forever thankful for an incredible addition to our special event. They made the night and everyone is still talking about them.
The band was absolutely amazing. The band was mind blowing and they worked so hard. Nothing but good reviews for both of the bands.
Oh my gosh, THANK YOU!!! They were so fabulous! Everyone loved them, I think they will be getting lots of calls!
Thank you Jim for the great music through the night! We still have another wedding in the future, you will be one of the first calls!!!
"The band was fantastic!! The energy in the room was great and everyone I have talked to has made a point of telling me how much they enjoyed the band. And, the Motown Quartet was a big hit. Thanks for everything."
"There is only one thing that Stanley and I can say to you and that is with a resounding bravo, bravo, bravo! Here is a resonating encore! What a night. The evening would have never been the same without your expertise and professionalism. The music set the whole tone and exceeded our expectations. There was never a moment where we were wishing they were playing something else and that has never happened to us or anyone we know. All the calls we have heard from the last few days have told us that is the best music they have ever heard. We can't wait to do more happy events in the future!"
Ilene & Stanley Gold
Last night was amazing! Impulse was the absolute best I've ever seen! Steve was incredible! The Supremes were wonderful! Ryan and his team were fantastic!
The guests danced and danced and applauded after nearly every song.
All of our guests are raving about the amazing music at Monica and Keith's wedding. The ceremony gave us all goose bumps with the beautiful renditions of all of our carefully chosen selections. They were just perfect! Then we all had aching feet from the party because even when we wanted to, we couldn't sit down. We definitely made the right choice is choosing Impulse for our music and in upgrading the sound system. It was evening we will never forget!!! Thank you for everything you did to make it all happen. We are so grateful!
Martha and Barry
Monica and Keith
I was just about to send you an email about this wedding! Impulse was absolutely AMAZING, FANTASTIC and so impressive to us once again... We love Rudy too! He is the best band leader and we love dealing with him on-site. Our Clients, Bridget & Chris, had never seen a West Coast Music band before and they (along with their guests) were blown away. Thank you so much for helping to make us shine for our Clients! They were extremely happy we introduced them to Impulse/West Coast Music for their wedding day. We also loved having Ryan on-site with us as the lead tech. We knew we were in good hands with both cocktail reception and dinner reception!
Exceeded all expectations. Literally beyond amazing everyone still can not stop raving about them!!!

Could not have asked for better
You are to be congratulated for the band we had for Mrs. Bressler. She is over the moon and continues to get emails and phone calls telling her the party was amazing. Your people are all very professional and I really enjoyed working with Ryan.

IMPULSE played for an event I chaired at the Beverly Hills Hotel. This is a week night event and not usual a fun one. They made it an incredibly wonderful evening. They looked good, they sounded amazing and the dance floor was CROWDED - unusual for this group. People stayed until the "last dance," and were unhappy when they departed.
Thank you West Coast Music!

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say that I LOVED the band. Rudy was amazing! Very talented and SO easy to work with. Thank you, thank you! Please tell Rudy that I said he is amazing! I think these guys will be my new go to band!
Hello there....EVERYTHING was over the top wonderful.
Rudy....accommodating, handsome and energetic as usual.
Davis: ditto. He took GREAT care of the volume, coming and checking with me frequently.
Band looked so great....white jackets and white gloves. The Big Band music was wonderful and the guests loved it. Nice to have to mix of 40s music and the current Song of the Year!
'Til next year...if not before...
The guests at are our event loved Impulse!! Some of the comments that we got were “best band that we’ve ever had,” “where did you find these guys?”, “they are so much fun to dance to,” etc. I was surprised to see how many people got up and started to dance between the salad and entrée. Impulse was very high energy and I don’t think that people could have been more enthusiastic.
Happy New Year!
I was at the event last year, but this was my first time actually working directly with that band. Rudy was wonderful to organize details with and was very open to last minute changes. As far as their music, I honestly don't think we could have had better entertainment! Like Mark said, everyone loved them and were very pleased with their show. And from an El Dorado operational side with the band, it couldn't have gone more smoothly.
Thank you again for everything!!
Ms. Jayme White (member services)
The band was absolutely exceptional. I heard many people comment that they have never heard a band that good! Thanks!
Jay - Father of the Bride
The band was absolutely AMAZING! Never before have I seen such a well orchestrated act. The music was just superb and the band members were top class.
Everyone at the wedding was asking about the band and i have already recommended them to several people. All i can say is what a CLASS ACT. Just brilliant.
Thank you so much for organizing this for Sabrina and myself and helping make this a night to remember!
Jake and Sabrina - Groom & Bride
I have no words to express how amazing "Impulse" was. People can not stop talking about how fabulous the music was. Their voices, presentation, appearance and overall vibe as a group was just superb.
I can not thank them enough for being there and helping to make my wedding so special! I have never heard a band perform like they did. Guests were cheering them on for one more song as we didn't want their music to end!
Please let them know what a fabulous job they did and how much we appreciate everything about that night. Without "Impulse" there is NO possible way that our wedding would have been the same.
Thank you all so much!
Kimberly Kantor Pitson - Bride
I wanted to thank Impulse and the whole West Coast Music crew for making Claudia and Skyler's reception entertainment AMAZING! Impulse was fabulous to work with, and their vocals were better than I could imagine. Not to mention the band was very easy on the eyes! The band leader, Rudy, was very accommodating, too. Claudia, Skyler and the guests throughly enjoyed every minute! I am looking forward to the next wedding with Impulse. Thank you.
Carrie Johnson - Planner
Thank you for everything you did for our Client's wedding this past weekend at Bacara Resort! Everything was FANTASTIC and our Clients were extremely thrilled with the ceremony, cocktail reception and dinner reception music. The quality of the sound system at the ceremony was incredible, loved the surround sound effect. Impulse was unbelievable and every single guest in the ballroom was in awe by their performance. Big thanks to Ryan for heading up the audio and to Rudy for leading Impulse!
We love working with all of you. Thank you so very much!
Erin Sprinkle - Planner
Impulse was absolutely incredible! They set the tone as we opened up the ballroom doors and the MC was one of the best we have heard.
Truly a fantastic experience.
Look forward to the next!
We love WCM - Impulse was amazing and true pros! We extended 30 minutes and they were well received of course!
Lisa Lippe - Cordinator
They were absolutely wonderful! So easy to work with on the planner end and INCREDIBLY entertaining on the guest end. I was seriously in awe of how great they were.
We all really enjoyed them and I am certainly going to put them at the top of my list!
Thanks again, you were great to work with and Impulse helped set the tone for an truly wonderful evening.
Jessi - Coordinator
As always, the band was spectacular! It was really fun to see them do more contemporary music this time. They were absolutely amazing and the dance floor was packed all night long.
Maren - Coordinator
Every bit was incredible as always :)
Lindsay Gores - Client
The band was excellent! Everyone loved them!

Lauren - Bride
THANK YOU!!! What a HUGE success. The guests RAVED and RAVED about the band.
Thanks for all your hard work.
Lisa - event planner
Unbelievably awesome are the first words we can think of. The most consistent compliment we had was about the band, the quality, the choice of songs, the adjustments to match the crowd. Truly professional, off the graph. We are happy to pay the bill, and worth every penny!
Mike Winget - groom
Impulse was wonderful! Everyone from the sound engineer to the band leader to the band itself was professional, friendly, easy to work with, and focused on making the Gala a success. The band sounded wonderful, and our guests loved them!
Eileen - events manager
My daughter's wedding was truly magnificent, and I have to tell you that the music played by Impulse took the show! All the guests wanted to know where we got the band .They were amazed at the beautiful music played, my dance with Johara I was told had people in tears, as did Johara's dance also with Cesar her husband. I can't tell you how grateful we are that we got such a talented group of musicians. The singing was incredible, the female singer and the male singers were truly beyond belief!!
They had the room rocking all night long! Your staff needs to be congratulated for a performance with a rating of 10+++++++!!!!
When my younger daughter Allegra, gets married in the future, you can rest assured that Impulse will be playing at her wedding.
Thanks for all your help.
John Sonza - Father of the bride
The band and music were fantastic! We heard many compliments throughout the evening, but the biggest testament was the amount of people on the dance floor, right up until we made them all leave. ;-)
Thank you for the great job by everyone on the team - we appreciated your excellent communication with us throughout the whole process, it was a great experience for us. Frankly, for as complicated as this whole event was, I think it was pretty close to flawless.
Thank you again and we look forward to working with you again soon!
Angela Stone - Event Planner
You have an incredible band. Everyone has agreed that it was the best music they ever experienced.
I will never look for anyone else for entertainment.
Isaac - Father of the Bride
As always they were amazing. Everyone had a great time and we really appreciated them entertaining the suggestions of the medical staff leaders. Thank you so much!
Debbie - Client
I must tell you what a fabulous party Gary's 70th was at the Biltmore in Santa Barbara on September 24th. Most of the perfection was due to the Impulse Band. WOW!! They could not have been more perfect. The letters, emails and phone calls from all our guests said that they loved being at this party, and especially were raving about your band. Gary and I loved every song and their musicianship was spot on. Thanks so much to Impulse Band and to you for suggesting them!!
Della and Gary Rolle'
Truly no words can describe the talent and performance that Impulse provided us on our special day. They are phenomenal in every way imaginable. Guests cannot stop taking about the evening and how incredible the band was. I shall share your name with the world. Thank you so much for your services.
Peace and love,
Jamie - Bride
The band was simply put...PERFECT! Nikki and I loved them which is obviously the most important, but every single guest young or old and everything in between was in agreement with their voices, sound and overall energy. From the introductions with Dynamite to our wedding song You and Me to James Taylor and literally everything during their set we were overjoyed with.
Thank you to Impulse and Jim a million times over! The wedding was a smashing success and the most important day for Nik and I and everyone at West Coast Music played a part.
Sincerely, Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Quinn - Bride & Groom
They were amazing. Because of them, we had the "Big Fat Catholic Wedding" we hoped for. Please tell Jim how much we appreciate his help and input. The evening went perfectly and the band was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!!!!
Kris Amon - Mother of the Bride
Thank you so much for the great job last night with your band. They were truly fantastic! Impulse is definitely a band to keep high on the list for all of our clients. What great energy, talent and fun!!!
Thanks a lot!
Jocelyn - Event Planner
Wow. Words cannot express what an incredible performance Impulse gave at our wedding on Saturday night. From the moment we walked into the tent, everyone was blown away by the band, and the rest of the night proved to be the greatest rock concert any of our guests have ever attended. Everyone agreed it was the best wedding band they had ever seen, and many guests commented that they felt they had a personal connection with the band members that truly enhanced the experience. Our first dance song was executed perfectly, the song we performed with the band was a total blast, and the song selections throughout the evening kept the dance floor packed and the energy high all night.
Thank you thank you thank you for helping make our wedding not only the best day of our lives, but also the most fun.
All the best,
Ali and Tim
The Band was AWESOME...once again people LOVED IT. I would figure next award season we will be back. They were amazing.
Kelly Austing - Manager, Creative Development - IN STYLE MAGAZINE
We heard repeatedly from all of our guests that "Impulse was the best band ever!" We echo all of their sentiments. Impulse was by far the best band EVER! They were incredibly talented, versatile, not to mention very good looking. Thanks for the wonderful suggestion, Jim. We wanted all of our guests to be on the dance floor and that's exactly what happened. We had the most amazing party of our lives. Thank you West Coast and Impulse.
Please extend a special thanks to Jim, for directing us to the FABULOUS Impulse Band....really a treat for all to listen and dance to such accomplished musicians and vocalist. Their sound, their range and their arrangements were truly amazing!!
Barbara Wagman - Mother of the Bride
It was fantastic!! Impulse band was absolutely amazing! Thank you for everything!
Mary Wright Shah - Diamond Affairs
Just wanted to say that Impulse was absolutely amazing, hands down the best wedding band I've seen and heard and I am not alone in saying this. Almost every guest asked me who the band was and all had stunning compliments for them. My friends, a lot from the east coast who have heard some great NY bands, all told me that these guys were one of the best if not the best they have heard. From the moment they took the floor, the dance floor was packed. They got the crowd going and you can tell they fed off our energy as well. I've never seen a dance floor like that at a wedding, and there were a lot of sore people on Sunday. It was a pleasure working with you. Thank you for all of the help in making our wedding so perfect and special. We would not change one thing from the entire weekend. Please send our thank yous to the rest of your team over there....
Absolutely WONDERFUL as always. Our guests are still raving about the great band and showed it by dancing til the very last song was played. Our thanks go out to all involved.
Julie Bejsa, Ball Chairman
I just wanted to thank you for IMPULSE and the fabulous strings. The band did an amazing job. Truly extraordinary. Everyone loved the swing/jazz/40s style music at the beginning, which was perfect, & everyone totally loved the dance music at the end...
It was amazing! Everyone was 'blown away'. If we had the band play two more hours we still would have had a full dance floor! The Neil Diamond act & the Jersey Boys act were a huge, huge success! Though rock is big, our guests went crazy with the Latin music & the oldies!... Our gratitude forever for making our wedding such an unforgettable memory! Please give our best to Jimmy and all at your wonderful office!
Sean & I would like to thank you so much for the amazing music you provided for our special day. The band was absolutely, amazingly great! They really had the party going. We are also so glad we added Karin (International Vocalist), she was great & really worked well with the band. I promised I wouldn't cry, but when I heard the music while I was walking down the aisle, I couldn't help it. It was perfect! Thanks!
Sean Sassounian & Jasmine Seda
