Concert for April 20 Legendary musicians representing two groups that make an indelible impact on music and culture will light up the stage at Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel on April 20. Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, and Blood, Sweat, and Tears will perform their classic, chart-topping hits.
While several colleges offered him scholarships to play basketball, music was always Chuck Negron's true love. He became a founding member of Three Dog Night, which created unforgettable hits with a blend of pop/soul vocals, great songwriting, and three-part harmony. By 1975, the group had sold 50 million records, including "One," "Joy To The World," "Easy to Be Hard," "Shambala," "Mama Told Me Not To Come," and "Old Fashioned Love Song."
By the time the group disbanded in 1976, Negron was battling his own personal issues. Negron says his life was saved by a miracle on September 17, 1991. He's been clean and sober since then.
Starting in the late 60's, Blood, Sweat and Tears set the standard by which all horn bands have been judged. They would eventually earn multiple Gold Records, ten Grammy nominations, and a Grammy Award for Album of the Year - which beat out The Beatles' Abbey Road. The album produced the hits, "You Made Me So Very Happy," "Spinning Wheel," and "And When I Die."
Although the band's lineup has changed over the years, the group continues to showcase superb musicians from around the world. IN 2011, the band played three sold-out concerts in New York City featuring legendary trumpeter Arturo Sandoval.
Audiences can expect to hear new arrangements as well as their hits, including "Hi De Ho," "Lucretia Mac Evil," and "Go Down Gamblin'."
Seats will go fast for this extraordinary concert featuring these renowned musicians.
