Tony Orlando and Sam Moore have joined the very short list of D-list entertainers performing at galas around Washington the night of Emperor Cheeto’s coronation.
Orlando is best known for being the front man for Tony Orlando & Dawn. Nearly 45 years go in 1973 they had a hit with Tie a Yellow Ribbon, a favorite among servicemen and their families. Orlando, 72, is set to perform at Friday night’s Salute to Our Armed Services Ball. That ball is free by invitation only for members and veterans of the armed services and their families.
Also, Sam Moore of the R&B duo Sam & Dave has announced that he will perform at the Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration in D.C. The singer said in a press release,
“I was a participant in the civil rights movement and have seen many positive changes and advancement in my 81 years of living in this wonderful country, but I know we must all join hands and work together with our new President.
I honestly believe that if we can accomplish this, the best is yet to come. We all as Americans need to unite behind our new President and give him a chance. He needs everyone’s support to make America greater, stronger and an even better country.”
OMG. Oh well, he’s 81, so we’ll let that slide I guess. Disappointing.
Other musicians now playing events around the inauguration include 3 Doors Down, Jackie Evancho and Toby Keith.
