Legendary music icons, Three Dog Night, celebrating nearly 5 decades, 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 wind 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.
Recently, Three Dog Night began adding new songs to its arsenal by releasing its first double-A sided single in nearly 25 years. The blistering performance of “Heart Of Blues” and the timely, beautiful a cappella ballad “Prayer of the Children” are available online at iTunes, Amazon.com and other digital retailers as well as through the official band website (ThreeDogNight.com).
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.
Charlie FARREN has long been known for great songs, great singing, and for outstanding live solo acoustic performances. Charlie captures an audience with his unique delivery, insightful lyrics, soaring vocal, and intricate and distinctive, ‘Full Band’ guitar style that distinguishes him among the country’s elite musical artists. Charlie’s solo performances have the energy and fun of a rock show, while maintaining in intimacy that makes for an entertaining and memorable evening. It has been said of his solo performances that it’s easy to forget that there is not a full band onstage! Charlie continues to be one of America’s most original and compelling musical artists. He takes the stage alone, and leaves the stage with a roomful of new believers.
Charlie FARREN emerged onto the national scene in the early ’80s as lead singer and guitarist with The Joe Perry Project. In that band, Charlie established himself as one of the hottest young singers to emerge on the Boston music scene, writing the hits “Listen To The Rock” and “East Coast, West Coast” and “I’ve Got The Rock And Rolls Again.”
In 1986, Charlie, along with Dave Hull (Joe Perry Project) and John Muzzy, formed Farrenheit and released a self-titled debut album on Warner Brothers, produced by Keith Olsen. Three singles from that album, “Fool in Love,” “Bad Habit,” and “Lost in Loveland,” as well as video exposure on MTV, established Farrenheit as one of the premier new rock acts–winning them the opening slot for the sold-out BOSTON Third Stage tour in 1987.
Now working on what will be his 17th album, Charlie has been described as contagious, displaying a candor rarely demonstrated by former arena rock stars. “It’s clear he has not lost the ability to captivate a room full of people no matter what the size,” writes Tom Dempsey of SoundCheck Magazine. His live solo performances remain the perfect forum for his remarkable talents.
