Biography

York PA, United States (2007 – present)

There are at least 8 artists which use the name “Night”

1) Night is a rock band dating from the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. Night’s vocalists Stevie Vann (aka Stevie Lange) and Chris Thompson had met when Vann had provided backing vocals for the 1978 album Watch by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band then fronted by Thompson. Soon afterwards Thompson invited Vann to join him in a new outfit, Vann’s session group known as Bones having recently disbanded and Thompson having reduced his involvement with Manfred Mann’s Earth Band.

Richard Perry produced two albums by Night for his Planet label; the group’s eponymous 1979 debut album “Night” yielded two US Top 40 hits: “Hot Summer Nights” (#18) and “If You Remember Me” (#17).

“Hot Summer Nights”, a cover of a minor Walter Egan hit, featured Lange on lead vocals and gave Night their one international hit most significantly in Australia at #3 with more moderate success in Canada (#23), the Netherlands (#21) and New Zealand (#28).

“If You Remember Me”, recorded as the theme song for the film The Champ, was introduced the Night album but in its single release credited solely to Chris Thompson with another album track “Cold Wind Across My Heart” - featuring both Thompson and Vann - being marketed as the second Night single; the latter track failed to chart and the Night album peaked at a moderate #113, the group’s gig opening for the Doobie Brothers failing to significantly boost their popularity.

    There is at least 2 bands with this name. Night was a loose, L.A.-based assemblage of session pros including Stevie Lange, who sang behind Graham Bonnet and Elton John; Chris Thompson, who contributed to War of the Worlds and worked for Manfred Mann's Earth Band (MMEB); and keyboard wizard Nicky Hopkins, who played with everybody. Night first released a cover of Walter Egan's minor single, "Hot Summer Nights." The track cracked the Top 20, but was to be the only chart appearance for the band. Auteur producer Richard Perry distributed the accompanying eponymous debut on his Planet label in 1979. A second LP, Long Distance, popped up the following year, but quickly faded. Thompson returned to MMEB, and Night fell in 1982. The talented Lange would go on to contribute to his solo record, High Cost of Living, and also work with numerous greats, including Gang of Four, Johnny Hates Jazz, the Mighty Lemon Drops, and Swing Out Sister.
