Ambrosia:The year is 1970, and four young musicians from the South Bay of Los Angeles, come together to create a new invigorating style of music exploring the possibilities of progressive, classical and world influences; rooted with the soul of the blues and R&B.

Originally labeled as America’s answer to progressive English acts such as “Yes” and “King Crimson”, the group quickly proved that and much more, garnering an impressive 5 Grammy Nominations, 5 Hit Singles, heavy airplay, and the admiration and respect of the musical community. All this was in addition to sold out concerts around the world; attracting collaborations with such cultural icons as Leonard Bernstein, Kurt Vonnegut Jr., and Alan Parsons.

Today, the band is more alive and compelling than ever, touring year-round with the additions of Doug Jackson on electric guitar, Mary Harris on keyboards, and the powerful and contemporary lead vocals, and acoustic guitar of Ken Stacey… Together Ambrosia is exploring new musical territory and continuing to wow life-long fans and new converts alike !

John Ford Coley, singer, musician, actor and author, continues to play for a worldwide audience. Most famous for his work as half of the grammy-nominated duo “England Dan and John Ford Coley”, where he's received double platinum and gold records, John also did teen films and a few TV roles in the 1980s, has written songs for films, and continues to produce other artists.
