Seneca Casinos is rounding out its winter and early spring entertainment lineup with a few new additions at Seneca Niagara Casino. Just added for late March are renowned "Blue Collar Tour" comedian Bill Engvall and Mary Wilson from The Supremes. In addition, the casino added a second performance of Sha Na Na in mid-February.

Engvall comes to Seneca Niagara Events Center on Saturday, March 24, for an 8 p.m. performance. He currently hosts the game show "LINGO" on GSN and continues to tour periodically with fellow "Blue Collar" comedians Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy. The former American Comedy Awards Comic of the Year also starred in numerous television shows, including "Mobile Home Disasters," "The Bill Engvall Show" and "Country Fried Home Videos."

Tickets start at $40 and go on sale Monday, Jan. 23, at noon.

The 440-seat Bear's Den Showroom features a "supreme" singer for two shows at the end of March. Mary Wilson of The Supremes will perform a matinee show at 3 p.m. and an evening show at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 31. Tickets for both performances start at $40 and go on sale Wednesday, Feb. 1, at noon.

Wilson, who anticipates the release of a new album this year, founded Motown trio The Supremes with Diana Ross and Florence Ballard. The group remains as one of the most successful female singing groups in recording history and recorded 12 No. 1 hits in the 1960s. Wilson also wrote a best-selling autobiography, performed on stage and screen, and continues to promote humanitarian efforts throughout the world to end hunger, raise AIDS awareness and encourage peace.

Seneca Casinos also recently added a matinee performance of Sha Na Na for Saturday, Feb. 11, inside the Bear's Den Showroom. The legendary band from the hit movie "Grease" and original Woodstock '69 lineup will now perform at 3 p.m. in addition to its already-scheduled 8 p.m. performance. Good seats are available for both shows and start at $45.

In addition to the new shows, the entertainment team at Seneca Casinos is working behind-the-scenes on its next season of "Summer Rush." Last April, Seneca Casinos announced a blockbuster 2011 summer concert lineup with acts such as Daughtry, Melissa Etheridge, Steve Miller Band, Martina McBride, Jeff Foxworthy and many more - and they promise another summer to remember for the Western New York and Southern Ontario regions in 2012.
