Three Dog Night showed why they were considered one of the premier groups of the late 60’s and early 70’s when they played at the Star of the Dessert Arena inside the Buffalo Bill’s Casino and Resort. The voices of this melodic group were still as clear and strong as they were forty years ago.
While there are many of the older musical groups still touring and performing, Three Dog Night can boast that it still has the majority of its founding members: Danny Hutton and Cory Wells on vocals, Michael Allsup on guitar, and Jimmy Greenspoon on keyboards. The familiarity of playing together for so many years shines through when they are on stage as the music flows with the greatest of ease.
While Wells and Hutton share anecdotes and stories of the group and their years together, when they begin playing their music, it is like listening to a greatest hit album being played live. They play an anthology of hits from their twenty-one top 40 hits and three number one Billboard chart toppers: “One”, “Mama Told Me not to Come”, and “Black and White”. There could not be a Three Dog Night concert without them playing the song they are most recognized for recording, “Joy to the World”. Everyone left the arena humming along to their favorite Three Dog Night “Old-Fashioned Love Song”.
