Little River Band

Little River Band was the first Australian band to successfully conquer foreign markets from an Australian base. Within eight months of their birth, LRB had already scored three Australian Top 20 singles and two Top Ten albums. In 1976, after their self-titled debut album was released in the USA, the long grind of 13 US tours in eight years had begun.

From Portland to Fort Lauderdale and New York to LA, fans of the band are treated to an entertaining mix of classic songs and new material, delivered as always with that trademark blend of impeccable vocals, soaring harmonies, kick-ass playing and the unmistakable feeling of a band really enjoying itself.

2015 marks the band’s 40th Anniversary, keeping alive the enduring appeal of recognizable and powerful classics, as well fresh new rock/country crossover hits.


Exploring the possibilities of progressive classical and world influences, yet rooted with the soul of the blues and R&B, Joseph Puerta, Christopher North, David Pack, and Burleigh Drummond created a new sound that was defined and recognized as Ambrosia. In its brief recording history, Ambrosia garnered 5 Grammy Nominations, 5 Top 20 singles, heavy FM airplay, and the admiration and respect of the musical community. All this is in addition to several sold out concerts around the world.

Today the band is more alive than ever. The band recently rocked the The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon show with accolades from Jimmy himself and has shown its musical versatility with the ability to play a prog set of music with Yes and Genesis or glide into their pop hits “How Much I Feel and Biggest Part of Me” with a romantic soul.


In January 1978, Player had an international number one hit with their first single: “Baby Come Back”, which was co-written and sung by Beckett. The self-titled album went platinum and the band toured extensively. Four albums followed rendering four more top forty singles, including “This Time I’m In It For Love”, which reached number ten on Billboard’s chart. Player started performing again in the year 2003, always featuring an all star line-up, which has included at various times members of The Cars, REO SpeedWagon, Foreigner and Little River Band.

Band member Peter Beckett has written hit songs for many artists including: Heart, Olivia Newton-John, Kenny Rodgers, The Temptations, Poco, Janet Jackson, The Commodores, Cliff Richards, Survivor, Grace Slick, and more recently Vanessa Hudgens of “High School Musical” fame.

Between the years 1989-1997, Peter was a featured member of The Little River Band and has written several singles for them. Peter and Ronn were part of Sail Rock 2013 and toured the country with Christopher Cross, Orleans, Firefall and many other great musicians. In 2014, the entire band toured Australia and appeared on national TV shows like General Hospital and Home and Family.

    You may not recall but my wife and I met you and Mrs. Jeff Eats at the Plaza Ballroom a few months ago. We were there for LRB concert. It was fantastic. It wasn’t good, it was fantastic. LRB was amazing. My wife and I loved every minute of the concert. The venue was terrific.
    Now we have LRB with two other great bands coming to The Amp. This shapes up to be an absolutely fabulous concert.
    My wife and I are going.
    I wanted to personally thank you for mentioning all of these types of concerts long before the general public ever hears about them. It was because of your that I heard about the Plaza show and now this one. By the way, we also got Morris Day and BST tickets because of your timely articles. Both times we were dead center ROW 2 which are incredible seats. My wife and I are also going to MJ show on 11/21 and hopefully we’ll bump into you at that show.
    Once again, love the site and the great effort you put in for your readers.

    I have seen LRM 2X in the past 2 years. Once at Mardi Gras Casino and once at the Plaza Ballroom. Both times I got great tickets because you scooped every other site as to when tickets were going on sale.

    I just bought 2 tickets to LRB at Pomp Amp and I am really looking forward to seeing Ambrosia and Player as well.

    I have to tell you that I have been to pomp Amp several times and the best show so far that I have seen there was Morris Day & The Time. The man was amazing. I will tell you that before reading about Day here I had never heard of the band. Your Jeff Eats’ story got me to check him out and I am so glad that I did.

    If I can be honest with you, I also saw the BST show and thought that it was just okay. Nothing terrible but it was bit too long for what it was 9 players who weren’t even close to being original members.

    I am planning on seeing the Michael Jackson show. I see that Goldstar has tickets so I am going to pick up 2 later today. I know that it’s just a tribute act, but after all MJ is no longer around so you can’t really see the real deal, can you?

    I know that this is a LRB board but I also wanted to mention that the Boca Black Box which you spotted long before everyone else has a ton of great concerts and shows lined up. This past Sunday I saw the Beatle Maniacs and they were terrific.

    Your contests and your take on things is so refreshing. You don’t pull punches and you really tell people what you really think.

    Looking forward to MJ show and hope to see you there.

    Saw the LRB a few years ago at Mardi Gras Casino in Hallandale Beach and the band was terrific. Looking forward to this show.
