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
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.
This Grammy-nominated band is not content resting on its legacy alone. Always working
to expand its audience, THREE DOG NIGHT has embraced and been embraced by 21st
century music technology. New and existing fans buy THREE DOG NIGHT’s music on
iTunes as well as at record stores. In fact, releases from this decade alone have sold well
over a million copies.
THREE DOG NIGHT also pushed boundaries by recording with the London Symphony
Orchestra, giving fans new and old a chance to experience its dynamic performances of
the hits as well as several 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 maintains an aggressive, year-round touring schedule of over 90
dates a year, performing their hit filled concerts for generation-spanning 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”.
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

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.

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 over 2,500
