Legendary band, THREE DOG NIGHT, now in its 5th decade, 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 3 #1 singles, 11 Top
10’s, 18 straight Top 20’s, 7 million-selling singles and 12 straight RIAA Certified Gold
LPs. The hits appeared on best selling charts in all genres (pop, rock and country). Its
records continue to sell around the world, reaching beyond the borders of the U.S. into
Japan, Canada, Holland, England, Germany, Spain and elsewhere. Tens of millions of
THREE DOG NIGHT records have been sold through the years.
Created in 1968 by Danny Hutton, THREE DOG NIGHT maintains an aggressive, year round
touring schedule of over 90 dates a year, performing their hit filled concerts for
multi-generational audiences. 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 group’s eclectic taste, combined with its 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’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 over 50 years on the road, THREE DOG NIGHT continues to grow its fan base
by keeping up a full schedule of concerts at theatres, performing arts centers, fairs,
festivals, corporate events, and casinos. Since 1986, the band has performed nearly 3,000
shows including two Super Bowls.
