Three Dog Night
Three Dog Night
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 (www.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.
THREE DOG NIGHT maintains an aggressive, year-round touring schedule of over 70 dates a year. The hit filled concerts are performed for generation-spanning audiences by Danny Hutton (founder/lead vocalist) and Michael Allsup (guitar), Paul Kingery (bass/vocals), Pat Bautz (drums), Howard Laravea (keyboards) and David Morgan (vocals). 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”.
Boasting chart and sales 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). 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.
THREE DOG NIGHT recorded the music of the best (and mostly undiscovered) new songwriters of that 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 THREE DOG NIGHT dominating the charts for years. Now, marking nearly 50 years 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 over 2,200 shows including two Super Bowls.
Wanted by The FBI
Wanted by The FBI
Wanted by the FBI is a Rockin’ Blues band based in Lockport, New York. The
three members of the current line-up have been playing together extensively for the
past 25 years and were all members of the award winning (1988 Best Classic Rock
Band) Buffalo based band Kixx, which played throughout Western New York and
Pennsylvania during the late 80's and early 90's.

From 1986 till 1992, Kixx gained popularity performing extensively until their
drummer moved to Virginia to pursue a career in Engineering. Shortly after, the
remaining members needed a break and the group disbanded. For several years ,
Phil and Brian experimented with various types of music and played in other bands
until Phil established Wanted By The FBI in 2001. The band consisted of Phil and 3
new musicians and the band performed at small clubs and local events for several
years in the Buffalo area. The band underwent multiple personnel changes over the
years until 2007 when founding members of Kixx , Phil, Brian and Joe reunited and
Wanted By The FBI was reborn as a trio. With two CDs released in 2007 and one
DVD in 2008, their music is now played in 127 different countries. In 2008, their
song, It Takes a War, off their CD by the same name, was #2 on Indie radio for the
entire year. The band has recently performed at shows such as Evolution with The
Outlaws, Molson Concert Series with Kenny Wayne Shepherd the Tralf Music Hall
with blues legends Guitar Shorty and Walter Trout. The band is scheduled to open
for Rik Emmett on July 30 and Savoy Brown on August 28. Additional information

John Moore and Missing Star Band
John Moore and Missing Star Band
John Moore And Missing Star is a new musical project featuring John Moore frontman from the long standing Western New York based band 53 Days.

As songwriter for 53 Days he penned the song "Shelter Me" for the soundtrack album to the movie Lonestar State Of Mind. The movie featured John Mellencamp in a role. The songs "These Days" and "When it Goes 'round" were used in the film "Last Big Attraction", the latter over the closing credits. As well as many songs that have been heard on MTV, CBS and E!.

The upcoming Missing Star CD contains poignant, soulful songs on feeling sometimes out of place in a too fast changing world, mortality and appreciating 'what ya' got'. With a 70's and 80's R&B pop throwback and a dash of modern rock it touches on themes everyone can relate to for its introspective look at living life.
