Tony Orlando is one of America’s most endearing and beloved iconic entertainers. 2024 finds Tony bringing his exhilarating energy, warmth and humor to a tour of
live concert shows across the nation as he celebrates over six decades in the entertainment industry. Tony is recognized by his peers and the public – as simply
the best!

Grammy Nominee Tony Orlando has sold millions of records, including Five #1 hit records: “Tie A Yellow Ribbon ‘Round The Ole Oak Tree,” “Knock Three Times,”
“Candida,” “My Sweet Gypsy Rose” and “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You).”

He has 2 Platinum and 3 Gold albums and 15 Top 40 Hits. “Tie A Yellow Ribbon” was the #1 Billboard Song of Year 1973 and became Orlando’s theme song and
grew into an American anthem of hope, homecoming, and renewal.

Tony was honored to be inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame at the New Jersey Performing Arts center on October 29th, 2023.

Orlando kicked off his sixty years in music and entertainment with a series of new projects, including the hosting of “Saturday Nights with Tony Orlando” on
77WABC Music Radio, which airs from 10pm to Midnight and streams worldwide on WABCMUSICRADIO.COM, and the release of “Timeless: The Big Hits” CD
(via Time Life), features re-recorded versions of his million-selling songs as well as a bonus track, “America Is My Hometown.” Tony debuted the new track on
77WABC Music Radio during his weekly radio program, which was also the first station to play Orlando’s debut single, “Halfway to Paradise” when in his teens
Tony was the first vocal pop artist to sign with Epic Records and hit the national music charts in 1961.
Few entertainers have excelled in so many realms as Tony has, a top selling recording artist, songwriter, concert headliner, network television star, Motion Picture
actor, Broadway performer and author. Tony was also General Manager and VP of CBS-Music Division April-Blackwood Music from 1966-1970. He represented
such songwriters as James Taylor, Laura Nyro, Blood Sweat and Tears and signed and produced Barry Manilow’s first recording and represented James Taylor’s
music publishing while working for the legendary Clive Davis.

The enormously popular Tony Orlando and Dawn television variety show ran for four seasons, from 1973 to 1977, on CBS. The show catapulted Tony Orlando
and Dawn from popular recording artists into major stars. Tony Orlando and Dawn was the first television show to feature a multi-racial singing group and Tony
is the first and only Latin American to host a network variety television series. Tony Orlando and Dawn rank among the Top 100 Billboard Magazine artists
of All-Time.

For outstanding achievements to the entertainment industry Tony was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the American Eagle Lifetime Achievement
Award for Latin performers, the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, and the Lee Greenwood Patriot Award. In 2022, Tony was honored with the Lifetime Achievement
Award from the East Coast Music Hall of Fame.

Tony is a recipient of two American Music Awards and the People’s Choice Award for Best Male Entertainer. He has been awarded the Casino Entertainer of the
Year Award, and “Best All Around Entertainer” multiple times in both in Las Vegas and Atlantic City.

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
