在组建和加入了一系列不成熟的乐队之后,Nugent终于在1966年加入了他的第一个正式乐队,The AMBOY DUKES。这支乐队凭借一首翻唱的Baby Please Don't Go进入了美国排行榜,不久后又有一首单曲Journey To The Center Of Your Mind大获成功,这首歌曲至今仍是Nugent在现场演奏时的常备曲目。和其他乐队一样,在取得了这一点点成功之后,乐队成员开始吸毒,那个时候乐队成员被Ted Nugent戏称为“一群无望的嬉皮士”。

在1975年乐队解散之前,The AMBOY DUKES转签过多家唱片公司,其中包括Frank Zappa的Discreet厂牌。乐队发行过几张专辑Journey to the Center of the Mind,Migration,Call of the Wild和Tooth, Fang & Claw等,不过商业销量一直并不太好。凭借他们无止尽的巡演,总算能够保持住一定的名声和收入。乐队在此期间也改名为TED NUGENT'S AMBOY DUKES,因为这个年轻的吉他手在乐队中的作用越来越重要,几乎所有的歌曲都是由他一个人完成。随着年纪的增长,Ted Nugent对自己的认识越发深刻,他意识到他自己身上所蕴涵的能量是无穷无尽的,在这样的乐队只会限制自己的发挥,因为乐队以前的音乐风格是比较传统的硬摇滚,而Ted需要的是更加刺激、更加热情、更富有能量的音乐。终于,在1975年的某天,由著名制作人Tom Werman引介,Ted Nugent以个人身份和大唱片公司Epic签定了一纸合同。


Ted Nugent, then 17, formed the band when he moved to Chicago in the 60's. Nugent had heard of a Detroit Rolling Stones cover band called Amboy Dukes that had just broken up, and took the name for his new band. The The Detroit Amboy Dukes had actually themselves stolen the name from a Brooklyn street gang of the same name (see Louis Buchalter). A book called The Amboy Dukes about teen-ager gang lifestyle was published in the 1940s. Written by Irving Shulman, it was circulated widely in mass market paperback and considered "hot stuff" in that more innocent time. In interviews Ted Nugent said he has been given the book on many occasions but still hasn't gotten around to reading it.[1]

The Amboy Dukes released a number of albums with Mainstream Records. Having run their course with Mainstream Records, they signed with Polydor Records around 1970. At this time Amboy Dukes song titles would display such period flavor as "Why Is a Carrot More Orange Than an Orange" and "The Inexhaustible Quest for the Cosmic Cabbage"; the latter number was a multi-part epic that incorporated both Béla Bartók and The Beach Boys.

The band quickly grew tired of Polydor Records and signed with Frank Zappa's DisCreet (Warner Brothers) label. They released two more albums and then broke up.

While the other Amboy Dukes receded into obscurity, Nugent, as the "Motor City Madman", became a very successful and quite visible solo musician, hunter, and political controversialist.

The disparity in career outcomes has led to differing recollections among the former Dukes about what happened during the band's lifetime. Nugent claims to have been the leader of the band, and at times the "babysitter" for the rest of the band, and that when he took a few months off the band fell apart. And despite the apparent drug references of many of their songs, Nugent fervently denies significant drug use.

The other members of the band, such as Steve Farmer, viewed the band differently. They say guitarist Farmer and singer Drake were the main songwriters and the de facto leaders of the Amboy Dukes; Nugent was not the "leadman". In an interview , Farmer deprecated Nugent's creative role in the Amboy Dukes, and mentioned some rather embarrassing personal details about Nugent. From Farmer's point of view, Nugent was the one who needed babysitting - he was a spoiled brat and none too intelligent. Farmer did emphasize that Nugent was the only member not involved in drug activity and promiscuous sex with groupies, so on that matter everyone is in agreement.
