Colorado had seen its fair share of rain this spring and more came this weekend. While this might have put a damper on such activities, there were a lot of people that still enjoyed the weekend. And while many people were traveling I-70 or I-25 to get to destinations Sunday night, there were many fans who were on the Road to Shambala.
The Hudson Gardens and Event Center brought back a fan favorite Three Dog Night for a sold out performance Sunday night, June 7th. Even though the skies were threatening and waiting to drop more rain, the fans at The Hudson Gardens and Event Center. No threatening skies could stop the 3500 fans that have followed Three Dog Night for years.
Taking the stage and bringing back some music history, Three Dog Night opened with ‘Family Of Man’, ‘Black & White’ and ‘Never Been To Spain. From there, the musical journey dated back to the late 60’s and early 70’s. Three Dog Night was formed by three vocalist in 1969, who found their chemistry was the exact mix to make musical No.1 hits and top the charts. Danny Hutton, Check Negron and Corey Wells were very successful with the harmonies and decided to grow their band. They brought on a great group of backing musicians – Michael Allsup on guitar, Floyd Sneed on drums, Joe Schermie on bass and Jimmy Greenspoon on keyboards. The chemistry amongst all members was so amazing and the band had to make a name for the band and the chosen name – Three Dog Night. Their creations of music and lyrics have created 21 Top 40 Hits. Current members include founding members Danny Hutton on lead vocals, Cory Wells on bass and Michael Allsup. Add guitarist Paul Kingery since 1982 and drummer Pat Bautz since 1993 and the mix of vocals is still amazing.
The Hudson Gardens and Event Center was on fire as Three Dog Night performed 10 of those 21 Top 40 Hits and many more that fell short of being on the Top 40 by just a few marks away from 40. One of the best performances of the night was the new song ‘Prayer’ which proved the members of Three Dog Night have not lost much in the way of vocal range and harmony. In fact it was one of the most beautiful songs that you will ever hear. Add this band to the beautiful surroundings of The Hudson Gardens and Event Center, and the night was an amazing journey.
