Three Dog Night
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 THREEDOG NIGHT’s continuing popularity. Boasting chart and sales records that remain virtually unmatched in popular music, THREE DOG NIGHT had 21 consecutive Top40 hits, including 3 #1 singles, 11 Top10’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 over90dates 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 THREEDOG 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 acappella 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 over50years 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 3,000shows including two Super Bowls.
Danny McGaw is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and sound-engineer based in Ojai, California, currently touring with legendary Vocal Hall of Fame inductees, Three Dog Night.
Danny’s voice packs an emotional charge that commands any room. Whether it’s intimate acoustic ballads or explosive folk rock anthems, his incisive lyrics and emotional intensity leave an unforgettable impression.
Combining a practicing athlete’s approach with an eclectic taste for a wide array of musical styles, Danny has also benefitted from close relationships he developed with celebrated composer and producer, Greg Townley, (Black Hawk Down, Sideways) as well as being fortunate enough to have spent considerable time in the studio with legendary drummer/engineer/producer Simon Phillips (The Who, Toto, Mick Jagger).
Five well-received albums later, Danny’s latest record, “On The Outside,” was produced by Grammy Winner Tim V. Hutton, (Jimmy Cliff, Three Dog Night, Sugar Ray) and incorporates a lush sound inspired by the Britpop of Danny’s childhood — big hooks, guitars, harmonies, and a punk-like energy. The songs cover a stylistic range — from open-throated anthems to folkie pin-drop intimacy.
