Coconut Creek, Florida 33073
Three Dog Night, one of the most successful American bands of the â€˜60s and â€˜70s, will bring â€œjoy to the worldâ€ on Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 8 p.m. at The Pavilion at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek.
Founding members and vocalists Cory Wells and Danny Hutton, original keyboardist Jimmy Greenspoon and guitarist Michael Allsup, as well as bassist Paul Kingery and drummer Pat Bautz will perform their beloved hits, plus some amazing new songs, sure to be enjoyed by South Florida Fans of all ages.
With their distinctive and sometimes extraordinary harmonic blend, the group became a sensation and their hits appeared on best-selling charts in multiple genres, including pop, rock and country. Boasting chart and sales records that are virtually unmatched in popular music, Three Dog Night had an impressive 21 consecutive Billboard Top 40 hits, including three number one singles, “Mama Told Me (Not to Come),” which was also a Top 10 hit in the United Kingdom, “Joy to the World,” and “Black and White.” Coincidentally, each one featured a different lead singer.
Three Dog Nightsâ€™ version of John Lennon and Paul McCartneyâ€™s â€˜’Itâ€™s For Youâ€™’ typified the band at their best, but it was their original arrangements of the work of lesser-known writers that brought welcome exposure and considerable royalties to fresh talent. The group recorded the music of the best new songwriters of their time, including Harry Nilsson (“One”), Randy Newman (“Mama Told Me (Not to Come)”), Elton John (â€œLady Samanthaâ€ and â€œYour Songâ€), Laura Nyro (“Eli’s Coming”), Paul Williams (â€œAn Old Fashioned Love Songâ€) and Hoyt Axton (“Joy to the World”) among many others. The band was noted for its creative arrangements and interpretations, and their cover choices gave exposure to several of these talented songwriters.
As they mark more than 40 years of extraordinary music and touring on the road, Three Dog Nightsâ€™ records continue to sell around the world, reaching beyond the borders of the U.S. into Japan, Canada, Holland, England, Germany, Spain and more.
