Before its world-class "Summer Rush" concert series begins, Seneca casinos will offer an exciting lineup of entertainment during the month of May. Just announced for Memorial Day weekend at Seneca Allegany Events Center is new wave rock group The B-52s.

The intimate 440-seat Bear's Den Showroom at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel also plays host to a wide range of newly added acts in May, including jazz guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli, classic R&B vocal group The Original Drifters, and impressionist and voice-actor Rich Little.

With hits such as "Love Shack," "Rock Lobster" and "Roam," The B-52s are a rock group that enduringly transcends all social categories. They consider themselves to be the "World's Greatest Party Band" and continue to sell out venues with the same founding members from 1976: Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, Keith Strickland and Cindy Wilson. The B-52s will deliver a party-like atmosphere inside Seneca Allegany Events Center on Sunday, May 27, at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $35 and go on sale Monday, March 26, at noon.

Critically acclaimed jazz guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli comes to Niagara Falls USA to play the Bear's Den Showroom inside Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel on Friday, May 4, at 8 p.m. Pizzarelli gained recent fame playing with the Boston Pops Orchestra and has appeared on more than 140 albums throughout his career - including guest performances with legendary artists such as James Taylor, Natalie Cole and Rosemary Clooney. Tickets start at $45 and are on sale now.

Vocal Group Hall of Fame members The Original Drifters deliver classic R&B hits inside the Bear's Den Showroom on Saturday, May 19, for two performances at 3 and 8 p.m. Rolling Stone magazine hails The Original Drifters as one of its "Top 100 Greatest Artists of All Time," and songs such as "Under the Boardwalk," "Save the Last Dance for Me" and "Up on the Roof" continue to be instantly recognizable after 50 years. Tickets start at $25 and are on sale now.

The Bear's Den Showroom turns into a comedy venue on Memorial Day weekend as impressionist and voice-actor Rich Little delivers the laughs twice on Saturday, May 26. Tickets start at $40 for shows at 3 and 8 p.m. and go on sale Monday, April 2, at noon. Little is called "The Man of a Thousand Voices" with his spot-on personas of Johnny Carson, Clint Eastwood, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Kermit the Frog and numerous other celebrity-icons and politicians.

Seneca casinos will announce its "Summer Rush" lineup of world-class entertainment, exciting promotions and special events in mid-April. The summer series includes events between June and early September.
