Tony Orlando-LV Backstage Talk w/Comedian Michele LaFong

April 18, 2013-6pm-7pm PST 1230AM KLAV in LV & The Web

Tony Orlando is Paco!








Tony Orlando, one of our favorite guests on Las Vegas Backstage Talk Radio Show with Comedian Michele LaFong on 1230am KLAV returns in a hour long “Backstage Interview” from his suite at The South Point Hotel & Casino.

He will also be featured in Michele LaFong’s Monthly Syndicated Columns, “Las Vegas Backstage Talk,” and  Getting Personal with the Stars,” in both Gaming Today, and Casino Player Magazine.  Tony Orlando & Family, wife, and daughter, also sit down with Comedian LaFong, in a backstage interview that is posted on LV BackstageTalk website, and

Expect many surprises in this very fun and entertaining interview, including Tony’s dead-on impressions of his friends, Jerry Lewis, and Bill Cosby.

His show was surprisingly relevant, with a lot of Beatles music included, and was truly entertaining!

Tony Orlando brings to the stage a warmth and exhilarating energy that electrifies an audience. From million selling records (five number one hits), a popular television variety series, movies and Broadway (Barnum and Smokey Joe’s Café), Tony Orlando has conquered every facet of show business.

Through no plans of his own, Tony was coaxed into putting his voice on a demo record for a song titled “Candida” for his friends Hank Medress and Dave Appell at Bell Records. The record was released under the name of the record promotion director’s daughter, Dawn.

“I think it is really the rule of show business that every big break you get you back into it without knowing it at the time. A few weeks after recording ‘Candida’ I had forgotten all about it. And then Hank Medress calls me and says, ‘Hey man, we’ve got a hit!’ The crazy thing was the song kept climbing the charts till it hit number one,” says Orlando.

Hoping lightning would strike again, Medress had Orlando recorded “Knock Three Times.” The song not only became number one, it was the tip song of 1971 selling over six million copies worldwide. The immense popularity of the song is still evident today. Tony’s recording of the song was featured in the hit movie Now and Then.

Realizing it was probably safe to give up his successful career at CBS Records, Tony decided to jump full force into what was already a meteoric rise to the top. Along with Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson, Tony Orlando and Dawn became an international sensation.

Amazingly enough, Tony hadn’t even begun to scratch the surface of his stardom. In 1973 he recorded “Tie A Yellow Ribbon ‘Round The Ole Oak Tree.” The song was number one for the year, became Orlando’s theme song and grew into an American anthem of hope and homecoming, reunion and renewal.
