Denny Doherty

1940 - 2007

Denny Doherty was born and reared in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and began his musical career there in a local rock band, The Hepsters, while working in a pawn shop. He had started singing in public at age 15, on a dare by performing "Love Letters In The Sand" in a skating rink-turned-dance-hall. In 1959 he formed his first folk trio, The Colonials, and after changing their name to The Halifax Three, signed a recording contract in New York. After recording two albums, the trio broke up, and Denny linked with Cass Elliot as a member of her group, The Big Three, which later became The Mugwumps, the first folk-rock group. Cass and Denny later joined John and Michelle Phillips of The New Journeymen to become The Mamas and The Papas. In 1965 the group relocated to Los Angeles where, over the next four years, they turned out a score of top-selling albums and singles featuring Doherty and Elliot's lead vocals, including "California Dreamin'," "Monday Monday" and "I Saw Her Again."
