“We are so excited to travel back in time to the ’70s and ’80s with the Rock The Yacht tour coming to The Event Center,” said Linda Powers, vice president of marketing at SugarHouse Casino. “Each artist’s timeless classics are sure to get the audience singing along!”

Headlining this year’s tour, Ambrosia consists of its three original members — Joe Puerta, Christopher North and Burleigh Drummond. The ’70s rock band is famous for its Top 20 single “Holdin’ On To Yesterday” and first gold single, “How Much I Feel.” Ambrosia continues to tour worldwide, performing its greatest hits, as well as more recent material.

Stephen Bishop
Also appearing on the tour, Stephen Bishop is known for the hit singles “Save It For a Rainy Day” and “On and On” from his debut album, “Careless,” in 1976. Bishop’s tracks can also be heard in many feature films, including Animal House, White Nights and Tootsie with the theme “It Might Be You.”
