Ambrosia hit the scene in the early 70s with a progressive rock style that caught the attention of millions. 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. In its brief recording history, Ambrosia garnered five Grammy nominations, five hit singles, including “How Much I Feel” and “Biggest Part of Me;” and earned the respect and admiration of the music community.

Today the band is more alive than ever with three of the bands four original members, Burleigh Drummond, Christopher North, and Joe Puerta, still performing. New additions to the group are David Lewis on keyboards, Doug Jackson on guitar, and Ken Stacey on vocals.
