Seneca Gaming Corporation's Got 'The Right Stuff' In Entertainment



    NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- As the mercury continues to
drop, Seneca Gaming Corporation (SGC) is proud to feature some of the hottest
acts at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel (SNC) and Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel
(SAC) that are sure to bring the heat this winter and spring.

    That's right, the gang's all here -- Jordan, Joey, Donnie, Danny and Jon
of New Kids On The Block (NKOTB)! Fresh off a European tour, the guys will be
"Hanging Tough" at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel on March 28, 2009 at 7:30
p.m.  Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, 1/23 at noon and are priced at
$60, $80 and $100. There is a four ticket limit per purchaser. The Kids, now
five grown men, exploded into the music scene in 1986 and forever defined the
look and sound of the modern boy band.

    NKOTB released "The Block" in September 2008, their first album since
disbanding in 1994. The guys performed 39 U.S. shows since they reunited in
2008 and will only perform 16 shows across the U.S. on their recently
announced spring 2009 North American Tour.

facilities and resort properties, announced the entertainment lineup today.

seat arenas, while at the Seneca Niagara Events Center, we have a capacity of
just over 2,000 seats, making it possible to bring our guests even closer to
these music icons," he said.

    Both resort properties boast virtually non-stop entertainment as the
stages sizzle with today's up and coming performers and classic favorites who
have made their mark in the music and entertainment industries for years.

    The Seneca Experience entertainment line-up will kick-off this Friday at
8 p.m. as the legendary singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, STEVE
WINWOOD, who has played for bands such as "The Spencer Davis Group," "Traffic"
and "Blind Faith," takes the stage for the first time in the Seneca Niagara
Events Center to avid fans and rave reviews.  According to Victoria, Friday's
concert is just the beginning of a diverse entertainment lineup performed by
top-notch artists.

    "We've continued the theme of variety from our past lineups to bring you
a wide array of shows sure to appeal to a broad range of tastes and
interests," he said.  Victoria also noted that quantity as well as quality
reign supreme, with events going on virtually every weekend.
