Five new shows are part of the entertainment lineup at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel from November through January 2013, including blockbuster performances by Jackie Mason and Earth, Wind & Fire at Seneca Niagara Events Center. In addition, the Bear's Den Showroom welcomes Canadian rocker David Wilcox in December and the return of Kelley Hunt in January, as well as two New Year's Eve performances by Chuck Negron - formerly of Three Dog Night.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 5, at noon to see comedian Jackie Mason perform at Seneca Niagara Events Center this November. Mason has enjoyed a career of more than 50 years in the business and is regarded as one of the top 50 comedy acts ever by fellow comedians and comedy insiders. His performances are described as combining "pungent political satire, insightful observations on the foibles of modern life and impeccable timing - making audiences laugh until they cry and critics raving show after show." Mason earned numerous awards for his Broadway act, "The World According to Me," in the 1980s, and in 1992 was the first guest star to win an Emmy for his role on "The Simpsons" as Rabbi Hyman Krustofski. Tickets start at $45 for Mason's 8 p.m. show on Friday, Nov. 9.

Earth, Wind & Fire will deliver hit after hit in Niagara Falls at Seneca Niagara Events Center on Saturday, Dec. 29, at 8 p.m. The group is widely regarded one of the 20th century's most influential musical acts, and delivers a unique mix of soul, rock, disco, R&B, jazz and dance. Earth, Wind & Fire has sold more than 90 million albums worldwide, earned six Grammy Awards, and wrote numerous No. 1 hits, such as "September," "Let's Groove," "Shining Star" and "Sing a Song." Tickets go on sale Monday, Oct. 15, at noon and start at $75.

The intimate, 440-seat Bear's Den Showroom plays host to David Wilcox and Chuck Negron to close out the final two days of 2012, followed by the return of Kelley Hunt on Jan. 19. Canadian rocker Wilcox brings his wit, tunes and talent to the stage, with powerful guitar riffs in songs such as "Hot, Hot Papa," "Riverboat Fantasy" and the hilarious "Layin' Pipe." Tickets for his Sunday, Dec. 30, performance at 8 p.m. start at $50 and go on sale Monday, Oct. 8, at noon. Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, is the lead singer on smash hits like "Joy to the World," "One" and "Old Fashioned Love Song." He performs two shows on New Year's Eve at 8 and 11 p.m. Tickets for each show start at $55 and go on sale Monday, Oct. 8, at noon. Returning to the Bear's Den for the third time in as many years on Saturday, Jan. 19, is singer-songwriter Hunt, who delivers a blend of gospel, blues and jazz in her soulful performances. Tickets for her 8 p.m. show go on sale Monday, Oct. 29, at noon and start at $30.

Tickets for all shows are available at Seneca Casino box offices, www.ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations, or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
