THREE DOG NIGHT
THREE DOG NIGHT enter their 4th decade bringing with them some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music. In the years 1969 through 1974, they delivered 21 consecutive Top 40 hits, including 3 #1 singles, 11 Top 10's, 18 straight Top 20's, 7 million-selling singles and 12 straight RIAA Certified Gold LPs.
Perfectly re-creating their larger than life songs with customary impeccable harmonies and exciting arrangements, THREE DOG NIGHT will perform their hits including “Joy to The World”, “Shambala”, “Mama Told Me (Not To Come)”, “One”, “Liar”, “Black and White”, “Celebrate” and many more of the tracks that drive to their chart and sales success.
THREE DOG NIGHT, which is made up of founding members Cory Wells and Danny Hutton on lead vocals, original band mates Jimmy Greenspoon (keyboards) and Michael Allsup (guitar) and completed by Paul Kingery (bass and vocals) and Pat Bautz (drums), now perform for audiences spanning several generations.
Initially brought together in 1968 by Danny Hutton and Cory Wells, THREE DOG NIGHT recorded the music of the best (and mostly undiscovered) new songwriters of their time including Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Elton John, Laura Nyro, Paul Williams and Hoyt Axton among many others. The group’s eclectic taste, combined with their ability to recognize and record hits in a unique, distinctive and appealing style, resulted in THREE DOG NIGHT dominating the charts for years. The now-famous name came from a story about Australian aborigines who, on cold nights in the outback, sleep with their dogs for warmth. The coldest evenings are known as "three dog nights".
Now, after nearly 40 years together, THREE DOG NIGHT continues to grow its fan base and develop new ways of doing business. They maintain an aggressive schedule of concerts at theatres, performing arts centers, fairs, festivals, corporate events, and casinos. Since 1986, they have performed over 2,000 shows including two Super Bowls.
Currently, THREE DOG NIGHT is recording material for a new studio release in 2009.
