Saturday To-Do: Three Dog Night

THREE DOG NIGHT
8 p.m., Timberwood Amphitheater, Magic Springs. $35.99-$45.99.

As reunions go, Three Dog Night acquits itself pretty well. Of the original seven-man line-up, four — including two of three lead vocalists, Cory Wells and Danny Hutton — remain in the incarnation of the band that closes out the Timberwood Amphitheater Concert Series at Magic Springs on Saturday. So you should count on this line-up to be able to approximate the band that, in the late '60s and early '70s, enjoyed massive success. To the tune of 21 consecutive Top 40 hits and 12 straight Gold LPs. Even if you weren't around to experience them, you probably know those hits. Many lent early exposure to their songwriters — “One” (Nilsson), “Eli's Coming” (Laura Nyro), “Mama Told Me (Not to Come)” (Randy Newman), “Joy to the World” (Hoyt Axton). Look for a hefty sing-along crowd to ring in this Magic Springs finale.
