While many people are familiar with Ambrosia's radio hits of the '70s, the songs on their five albums also range to progressive and experimental. They're as comfortable with ballads as with driving rock and roll. They can be serious, they can be playful -- but the music is always rich and the harmonies are beautifully blended. Some of their hits include "Holdin' On To Yesterday," "Nice, Nice, Very Nice," a cover of The Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour," "How Much I Feel," "Biggest Part of Me" and "You're the Only Woman." Steeped in the melodic past, King Washington reigns supreme with catchy rock hooks and three-part harmonies. They open the seated show along with DJ Claire. Learn More
