Ambrosia
Wednesday, January 24, 2018

It was 1970 when 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, they created a new sound that was defined and recognized as “Ambrosia.” Originally labeled as American’s answer to the progressive invasion of such English acts as “Yes” and “King Crimson,” the group quickly proved it was all that and more as it’s albums painted aural landscapes covering the gamut of musical styles. Today, the band is more alive and compelling than ever, exploring new musical territory and continuing to wow lifelong fans and new coverts alike!

Carla Cooke – Daughter of the Legendary Sam Cooke
Wednesday, March 28, 2018

The legendary Motown recording artist Sam Cooke is all about music, religion, romance, and history. His youngest daughter, Carla, crafted her sound in the church similar to her dad. She never sought to use her father’s name but chose rather to build her own reputation and has become her own person, with roots connected through her father’s music. Carla’s style is diverse in Gospel, Christian, R&B, Soul, Pop and the contemporary sound that embraces today’s culture.

With a strong vocal range and warm personality, her stage presence commands the environment wherever she performs. Her CD entitled, “A Time to Remember,” covers renditions of her father’s hits including “A Change is Gonna Come,” “Summertime” and “Lost and Looking” as well as several compositions she has written. Carla proves that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as she gives the listener the raw talent, emotion, beauty and charisma that has her carrying the Cooke family torch musically into the new millennium.
