Boston, MA, United States, 2011/04/21 - Ambrosia Members Joe Puerta, Christopher North, Burleigh Drummond, Rick Cowling, Doug Jackson, Tollak Ollestad Sweeping New England With Three Shows End of April.
In the year 1970 four young musicians in the South Bay of Los Angeles came together to create an invigorating style of music that explored the possibilities of Progressive, Classical, and World influences yet rooted with the soul of the Blues and R+B. In Joseph Puerta, Christopher North, David Pack, and Burleigh Drummond a new sound was defined and recognized as AMBROSIA.
Ambrosia originally labeled as America’s answer to the progressive invasion of such English acts as Yes and King Crimson the group quickly proved it was all that and much more as it’s albums painted aural landscapes covering the gamut of musical styles and attracting the collaboration of such cultural deities as Leonard Bernstein, Kurt Vonnegut Jr., and Alan Parsons.
In it’s brief recording history Ambrosia garnered five Grammy nominations, five hit singles, heavy FM airplay, and the admiration and respect of the musical community. All this in addition to sold out concerts around the world.
Today the band is more alive than ever with three of the original four members intact and the addition of the very talented and inspiring David Lewis on keyboards, Doug Jackson on guitar, and Ken Stacey on vocals. The group is well into the recording of a new CD and continues to tour throughout the world delighting audiences everywhere they perform.
Ambrosia has played with Heart, Doobie Brothers, Boston, Rush, Edgar Winter, Dave Mason, Stephen Bishop, John Ford Coley, Terry Sylvester, Leonard Bernstein, Christopher Cross, Al Stewart, Jimi Jamison, and many others.
