Three Dog Night’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.” Created in 1968 by Danny Hutton, the group’s eclectic taste, combined with their ability to recognize and record hits in a unique, distinctive, and appealing style, resulted in years of chart and sales domination. Boasting 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 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). Their records continue to sell, reaching beyond the borders of the U.S. into Japan, Canada, Holland, England, Germany, Spain, and around the world. Tens of millions Three Dog Night records have been sold through the years.

The band’s hits weave through the fabric of pop culture today. Whether on the radio, 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” have crystallized Three Dog Night’s continuing popularity.

Marking over 50 years on the road, 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. Since 1986, the band has performed over 2,500 shows, including two Super Bowls.
