Tony Orlando to Perform at Nixon Presidential Library on July 4th

Pop singer and 70s TV star Tony Orlando is scheduled to appear as a special guest at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda on July 4.

Orlando, a 69-year-old Republican who enjoyed exceptionally close ties to President Gerald R. Ford, will present the library with his "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" Gold Record for a display honoring Vietnam prisoners of war.

After Orlando's 11 a.m. performance, the library plans "a dazzling concert of patriotic favorities" by the 90-member Placentia Symphonic Band.

The holiday will conclude with a free workshop on how to burglarize the offices of your political opponents*.

On July 6, Nixon's library will host the Huntington Beach Concert Band.

Go HERE for the complete schedule of events.

*Kidding, I think. At least, the public schedule doesn't list this workshop.
