East Meadow, NY - July 29, 2016 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced that Eisenhower Park’s Harry Chapin Lakeside Theatre will host the Salute to Veterans Concert starring Tony Orlando and the USO Liberty Bells on Saturday, August 6th. The program will begin with ceremonies conducted by the Nassau County Veterans Service Agency, when the 2016 Distinguished Service to Veterans awards will be presented to individuals who have shown extraordinary support to the veteran community. The concert will begin with the USO Show Troupe at 7:30 p.m., followed by Tony Orlando at 8:00 p.m.

No entertainer can move and excite an audience like Tony Orlando. One of America’s most endearing and enduring stars, Tony and America recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of his recording of Tie A Yellow Ribbon ‘Round The Ole Oak Tree. Tony brings to the stage 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 Cafe) Tony Orlando has conquered every facet of show business.

The officially chartered USO Show Troupe performers travel throughout the world performing for service men and women, their families, veterans and audiences that actively support the troops here and abroad. The USO Show Troupe is part of this American tradition that began with the muddy camp shows of the South Pacific 72 years ago.

Much of the programming at the Lakeside Theatre is made possible through the Nassau County Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which are proceeds from taxes on hotel and motel rooms in Nassau County. Since 2006, Nassau County has received more than ten million dollars from the Hotel/Motel Proceeds Grant, which also has assisted in historic building restoration and other cultural enhancements.
