"Ambrosia" at the Cave
Nov 29, 2014 | 06:00PM - 11:00PM
In the year 1970, 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.
In its brief recording history,
Ambrosia garnered 5 Grammy Nominations, 5 Hit Singles, Heavy FM Airplay, and
the admiration and respect of the musical community. All this was in addition
to Sold Out concerts around the world.
Today the band is more alive than
ever. The band recently rocked the Jimmy Fallon show with accolades from Jimmy
himself ("that’s how you do it!") and has shown it's musical
versatility with the ability to play a prog set of music with Yes and Genesis
or glide into their pop hits "How Much I Feel and Biggest Part of Me"
with a romantic soul.
