Born in the year 1944, Michael Anthony Orlando Cassavitis, more popularly known as Tony Orlando, is a popular American show business personality and also a member of the pop music ensemble of the seventies, Tony Orlando and Dawn. Orlando was discovered by record producer, Don Kirshner back in 1961 when Orlando was only sixteen. With Kirshner’s help Orlando was able to release records such as "Bless You" and "Halfway to Paradise". After releasing several chart topping hits, Orlando became a producer and started working at the CBS Records Company. Orlando was promoted to the vice president post within a few years where he became in charge of the April-Blackwood music department.
It was during the seventies that Orlando went on to become a part of the music group "Dawn" and started touring throughout the world. Releasing worldwide hits such as "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree", "Knock Three Times" and "Candida", the group changed its name to Tony Orlando and Dawn, due to the fame and popularity Orlando was bringing to the group. Apart from singing, the pop ensemble started hosting a variety show named after them on the CBS Network which they stayed a part of till the year 1978, after which the band broke up. Orlando, realizing his love for music decided to pursue a career as a solo musician and started touring throughout Missouri, Branson and Las Vegas.
Growing up in the city of Manhattan, Orlando moved to New Jersey where he spent most of his teenage years. His interest in music established since a young age and the very first group he founded was at the age of fifteen. The ensemble was a doo-wop group and was called "The Five Gents". With this band Orlando presented several hits that include "Chills" that was released in 1962, "I’ll Be There" and "Shirley" that came out in 1963 and "I Was a Boy (When You Needed A Man), that came forth in the year 1969. Orlando then started his producing career by first joining Columbia Records as a manager and then moving onto CBS Records.
While he was working Orlando was invited by musicians, Linda November and Toni Wine to record a demo named "Candida". Accepting the offer and the song was released under the group name "Dawn" as Orlando didn’t wish to disrupt his producing duties at CBS while recording this demo. With the hit of "Candida", the trio recorded another hit called "Knock Three Times". This song made to the very top of several charts. Dawn then decided to go on a national tour and invited Orlando to become a part of it. It was in the year 1973 that the name of the ensemble was changed to "Tony Orlando and Dawn" as the singers found out that there were six other groups on the tour with the same name. With the success of this ensemble, Orlando then decided to establish his name in the music industry as a solo artist. Battling with personal problems, addiction and depression, Orlando took a break from singing in the late seventies and was seen making a comeback in early eighties, after which he was seen touring massively throughout the world.
As a solo artist, Orlando has released six studio albums in total releasing the very first one in 1961 called "Bless You" and the most recent one in 1979 named "I Got Rhythm". These albums have presented songs such as "Halfway to Paradise", "Sweets for my Sweet", "Make Believe", "Don’t Let Go" and "I Was a Boy". Fans now have an opportunity to listen to some of these tracks at the upcoming concert, simply by purchasing Tony Orlando tickets immediately.
