Tonight at The Barns, pop-rockers Ambrosia make their Wolf Trap debut with their sleek hooks and harmonies.
Formed in Los Angeles in 1970, Ambrosia released its first album in 1975 which included hits “Holdin’ on to Yesterday” and “Nice, Nice, Very Nice.” Through the decade they ruled the airways with smooth hits “How Much I Feel”
and “Biggest Part of Me.” Known for their masterful harmonies, smooth
synthesizers, and memorable choruses, California-based band Ambrosia had five
Top 40 hits and five GRAMMY nominations in the 1970s and early 1980s. After disbanding in 1982to pursue solo projects,three members of the original quartet reunited in
the mid-1990s and released their greatest hits album, Anthology, in 1997. Since then, they have been frequently touring,
released live the album Standing Room Only,
and are working on a new studio album. The band includes original members Burleigh Drummond (drums, vocals), Christopher North (piano, keyboards, vocals), Joe Puerta (bass, guitar, vocals) along with new addition Doug Jackson (guitar). "After 40 years, Ambrosia still has some of the best harmonies in the
business. Their show was tight, the musicianship unmatched, and they are
obviously still loving playing all of their classic hits. ”—Kim Yaffa of Infinity Hall Norfolk Ambrosia performs at The Barns on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 7:30 pm.
