As the summer comes to an end, so do the outdoor concerts at Hudson Gardens and Event Center.
To close out the summer season Hudson Gardens and Event Center hosted Three Dog Night.
From 1969-1974 nobody had more Top 10 hits than Three Dog Night. and now Three Dog Night is celebrating their 4th decade as one of America's favorite bands. With such hits as "Mama Told Me (Not To Come)", Joy to the World", Black and White", "Shambala" and "One", Three Dog Night still has the founding members Cory Wells and Danny Hutton on lead vocals, as well as original keyboardist Jimmy Greenspoon. Rounding out the band is guitarist Michael Allsup, Paul Kingery on bass and vocals and Pat Bautz on drums.
Taking their name for the Australian expression describing the low tempeatures in the outback, the colder the night the more dogs were needed to keep themselves warm while sleeping. The coldest being a three dog night. And so it came to be. After a few unsuccessful attempts at music, more musicians were hired on. The band then started to become more of a vocal harmony that stormed the nation. The hits kept coming and soon Three Dog Night was a household name and started to climb the Top 40 charts.
The venue was a sellout and Hudson Gardens and Event Center saw that it was time to "Celebrate" and even though the rain came, "The Show Must Go On".
Thank you for a great summer, a great lineup and the chance to see why once again, Hudson Gardens and Event Center is one of the best venues when it comes to enjoying a summer night filled with some of the best music. And a class act Three Dog Night ended what was a summer to remember.
