Musical group 'Ambrosia' will be in JAX for 1 night


In their continued effort to maximize intimate settings, offer exciting entertainment to their guests, and celebrate their 50th Anniversary season, the Alhambra Theatre & Dining is hosting the popular 70’s rock band, “Ambrosia”.  With its roots in the California rock scene, Ambrosia had five hit singles which included: “Biggest Part of Me,” “You're the only Woman” and “How Much I Feel,” each of which were nominated for Grammy® Awards.

Back 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 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 five Grammy® nominations, five 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 and compelling than ever.  With three of the original members plus the addition of guitar ace Doug Jackson on electric guitar and backing vocals, Mary Harris contributing amazing keyboards and vocals, and the powerful and contemporary lead vocals and acoustic guitar of Ken Stacey, Ambrosia is exploring new musical territory and continuing to impress life-long fans and new converts alike.
