About Three Dog Night

 
     

Legendary music icons, THREE DOG NIGHT, celebrate their 4th decade bringing with them some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music. In the years 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets than THREE DOG NIGHT.

THREE DOG NIGHT’s hits wind through the fabric of pop culture today, whether on the radio where they are heard day in and day out, in TV commercials or in major motion pictures -- songs like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come)”, “Joy to the World”, “Black and White”, “Shambala” and “One” serve to heighten our emotions and crystallize THREE DOG NIGHT’s continuing popularity.

This Grammy-nominated band is not content resting on their legacy alone. Always working to expand their audience, THREE DOG NIGHT have embraced and been embraced by 21st century music technology. New fans buy THREE DOG NIGHT’s music on iTunes as well as at record stores. In fact, their releases from this decade alone have sold over a million copies. On websites such as Facebook, Myspace, Last.fm, iLike, and Bebo, THREE DOG NIGHT have garnered millions of music plays.

In the fall of 2009, THREE DOG NIGHT began adding new songs to their arsenal by releasing their first double-A sided single in nearly 25 years. The ethereal a cappella ballad "Prayer of the Children” featuring the vocals of all 6 band members and their blistering performance of "Heart Of Blues" and are available at iTunes, Amazon, and other digital retailers as well as at the band’s official website (www.threedognight.com). The THREE DOG NIGHT iPhone app was also launched to keep fans up to date on new music, tour dates and other news.

THREE DOG NIGHT also pushed boundaries by recording with the London Symphony Orchestra, giving fans new and old a chance to experience their dynamic performances of the hits as well as two new songs. The project, recorded at the famous Abbey Road studios in London and released to coincide with the band’s 35th Anniversary, added exciting new orchestral arrangements to THREE DOG NIGHT’s signature sound.

THREE DOG NIGHT maintain an aggressive, year-round touring schedule of over 80 dates a year. Their well-loved hits plus some amazing new songs are performed for audiences spanning generations, by founding members Cory Wells and Danny Hutton on lead vocals, as well as original keyboardist Jimmy Greenspoon and guitarist Michael Allsup. Paul Kingery (bass and vocals) and Pat Bautz (drums) complete the lineup. Originally formed in 1968, the group was enormously successful from the start. Danny Hutton, who was a writer/producer at Hanna Barbera Records as well as a solo artist, met Cory Wells, lead singer of The Enemys which was the house band at the Whisky A Go- Go, while they were both touring with Sonny and Cher. 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".

Boasting chart and sales records that are virtually unmatched in popular music, THREE DOG NIGHT had 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. Their hits appeared on best selling charts in all genres (pop, rock and country). Their records continue to sell around the world, reaching beyond the borders of the U.S. into Japan, Canada, Holland, England, Germany, Spain and elsewhere. Over 50 million THREE DOG NIGHT records have been sold through the years.

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 band toured extensively in the late ’60’s and into the 70’s, but in 1977, the non-stop concerts and hit-making took its toll. According to Cory Wells, "we just quietly backed out of the picture". Their desire to "get away" from the hectic world of pop music was relatively short-lived however, and by 1981 they discovered that they wanted to perform again. "The old magic was still there", noted Danny. Audiences agree.

Now, as they mark 40 years on the road, THREE DOG NIGHT continue to grow their fan base and develop new ways of doing business. In 2010 they are pursuing an extensive 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.
