In the late 1970s two singers Stevie Vann (aka Stevie Lange) and Chris Thompson met when Vann was performing backing vocals for a Manfred Mann's Earth Band album (who Thompson was the singer for). Thompson approached Vann to form a band, known as Night, soon after Vann's own backing group, Bones had split up. Night then later split in 1983 after releasing two albums. They had two Top 40 hits in the U.S. in 1979: "Hot Summer Nights" (#18) and "If You Remember Me" (#17). The latter single, recorded as the theme song for Franco Zeffirelli's remake of The Champ (1979 film), was originally credited solely to Chris Thompson; later pressings of the single were credited to "Chris Thompson and Night."
Night can be seen in the film The Monster Club performing "The Stripper"
