About Three Dog Night courtesy the Stiefel Theatre
Legendary band, Three Dog Night, claims 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 hits weave 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. Boasting chart and sales records that remain virtually unmatched in popular music, Three Dog Night had 21 consecutive Top 40 hits, including three No. 1 singles, and 11 Top 10s.
Created in 1968 by Danny Hutton, Three Dog Night maintains an aggressive, year-round touring schedule. 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.”
The band recorded songs of the best and largely undiscovered new songwriters of its time including Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Elton John, Laura Nyro, Paul Williams and Hoyt Axton among many others. The band’s music transcends time, bringing together both new and longtime audiences alike. Three Dog Night demonstrates its eclectic song choices once again with the new material being recorded for an upcoming album release. One of the new tracks, Prayer of the Children was discovered by Hutton who created an a cappella arrangement so that for the first time in the history of Three Dog Night, the vocals of all six members of the band are featured. The song is currently part of their live concert set and quickly becoming an audience favorite, marking more than 50 years on the road. Since 1986, the band has performed nearly 3,000 shows.
