Rock out at ‘The Fred’ this Saturday night with Blood, Sweat & Tears, 3-Dog Night’s Chuck Negron
There will be some “Old Fashioned Love Songs” playing at The Fred on Saturday night, as Blood Sweat & Tears along with Chuck Negron perform the second show in the Lexus of South Atlanta Summer Concert Series.
A musical institution, Blood Sweat & Tears, has left an indelible mark on the American music scene since 1968. Considered to be one of the greatest horn bands in the history of popular music, Blood Sweat & Tears’ alumni roster reads like a Who’s Who of the world’s greatest jazz and rock musicians.
As BS&T has evolved through the years, it has maintained its commitment to high standards by including in its current roster the most talented musicians available.
Racking up sales in the millions, BS&T earned multiple gold albums, 10 Grammy nominations and won 3 Grammy Awards, including the most prestigious of them all, Album of the Year. Hit songs will include “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy”, “Spinning Wheel,” “And When I Die.”
Chuck Negron, formerly lead singer of Three Dog Night, will take the stage to perform with BS&T following their show. In 1967, Chuck Negron became a founding member of Three Dog Night: A vocal trio, whose roots would be in R&B, rock-n-roll and urban doo wop, but, whose music would be totally new and unique. Chuck felt one thing might be missing: Great songs.
A career within a career
The world was introduced to Chuck Negron and Three Dog Night in 1969 by the breakthrough, and the band’s first million seller, “One.”
Driven by Chuck Negron’s solo lead vocals on 4 million selling singles, three #1 records, (one which topped the charts for six weeks, “Joy To The World,”) five top 5 hits and seven top 40 hits, Negron put and kept Three Dog Night on the charts for six years.
His soaring, soulful, four octave range and unique vocal styling became a part of the American landscape. His gut wrenching performance on the band’s follow up hit to “One,” “Easy To Be Hard” is now a pop classic, as is his beautiful and smooth vocal on “Old Fashioned Love Song.”
Chuck’s unmistakable voice exclaiming “Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog” on the multi-Grammy nominated and 1971 Record Of The Year, “Joy To The World” is today a part of Americana, securing a place for Chuck Negron as one of the great singers in rock and pop.
While Chuck was with Three Dog Night they had a phenomenal 18 consecutive top 20 hits, 21 top 40 hits, 8 top 10 hits and 4 number one hits, not to mention 5 top 10 albums and 11 top 20 albums
Gates open at 7 p.m, with local opener Capo 3 taking the stage at 8 p.m. Blood, Sweat & Tears will perform at 9 p.m., with Chuck Negron joining them at approximately 9:45.
