Tony Orlando Information

As an original of the Five Gents, an early ‘60s doo-wop group, Tony Orlando was lured back into the recording world after becoming manager of Columbia Records. The switch proved successful- scoring the hit “Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” with backing vocals from the group Dawn. Tony Orlando soon became a staple sound of the ‘70s, with hit tunes “Knock Three Times” and a weekly variety show on CBS. Years after the initial fame of Orlando, “Yellow Ribbon” is still a national anthem, with a yellow ribbon having become a symbol of hope and homecoming in time of war amongst Americans. Tony Orlando now puts on successful tours giving a second live to his ‘70s hits, coming to the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on September 11th.
