Expect John Ford Coley and AMBROSIA to also perform a few of their classics TOGETHER on stage – a truly memorable evening at the King Center – L3Harris Theatre!
The story of AMBROSIA begins in 1970 where four young musicians from the South Bay of Los Angeles, came together to create a new invigorating style of music. Exploring the possibilities of progressive classical and world influences, yet rooted with the soul of the blues and R&B. Joseph Puerta, Christopher North, David Pack, and Burleigh Drummond created a new sound that was defined and recognized as, “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 its albums painted aural landscapes covering the gamut of musical styles and attracting the collaboration of such cultural icons as, Leonard Bernstein, Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and Alan Parsons.
The group is well into the recording of a new CD and continues to tour throughout the world delighting audiences everywhere they perform. Ambrosia wants to thank its fans for 43 years of musical support and give a promise for much more great music to come!
