Legendary music icons, THREE DOG NIGHT are celebrating nearly 5 decades together, performing to sell-out crowds and boasting some of the most astonishing chart statistics in popular music with 21 consecutive Top 40 hits, including 3 #1 singles, 11 Top 10's, and 12 straight RIAA Certified Gold LPs. THREE DOG NIGHT will perform their hits including “Mama Told Me (Not To Come),” “Joy to The World,” “Black and White,” “Shambala,” “One,” “Liar,” “Celebrate,” and many more!
Their hit filled concerts, performed for generation-spanning audiences, feature Danny Hutton (founder/lead vocalist) and Michael Allsup (guitar) with Paul Kingery (bass/vocals), Pat Bautz (drums), Eddie Reasoner (keyboards) and David Morgan (vocals). The band’s now-famous name refers to native Australian hunters in the outback who huddled with their dogs for warmth on cold nights; the coldest being a “three dog night”.
Created in 1968 by Danny Hutton, 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.
Now, marking nearly 50 years on the road, THREE DOG NIGHT continues to grow its fan base by keeping up a full schedule of more than 70 concerts a year at theatres, performing arts centers, fairs, festivals, corporate events, and casinos. Since 1986, the band has performed over 2,200 shows including two Super Bowls.
