Ramblin’ Ambassadors at The 2016 Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival
Formed on a dare, The Ramblin’ Ambassadors learned to surf the hard way. Since 2002 they have been riding the waves of prairie dust in their hometown of Calgary, Alberta, Canada and the surrounding turf.
Members are Huevos Rancheros’ guitarist Brent J. Cooper, Scott Nickless, former Agriculture Club bassist, and Tyler Pickeringon on drums.
The band’s debut Avanti features local celebrities David Alcock, Russell Broom (Jann Arden’s right-hand man), R&B favourites the Mocking Shadow’s Ian Hartley, and world-famous saxophonist Michael Ibrahim (on organ!!). The list of notorious, almost made it to the studio to help out luminaries is longer than the Ambassadors’ set list! (Wait for the next one.) Also, a song from Atomic 7/ Shadowy Men guitarist Brian Connelly (“Twenty Original Fembots”) is featured (perhaps high jacked is more appropriate.)
Still on their steady rock ‘n’ roll swagger, the Ambassadors released their third album Ramble On in 2012 via Mint.
