Fall entertainment at Seneca Resorts & Casinos just got a whole lot more exciting. Three major lineup additions are slated for the Seneca Events Centers in October and November, including Alanis Morissette on Oct. 4 in Niagara Falls, Bill Engvall on Nov. 16 in Salamanca and Steve Miller Band Nov. 21 in Niagara Falls. Five new acts also are booked between September and November for the smaller Bear's Den Showroom in Niagara Falls, including "A Tribute to Martin and Lewis," Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, John Hiatt, Marc Cohn and Coco Montoya.

One of the most successful female rockers of the 1990s comes to Seneca Niagara Events Center for a stripped-down, subdued performance. Alanis Morissette: Live, Intimate and Acoustic takes place Saturday, Oct. 4, at 8 p.m. in the 2,400-seat venue, with tickets starting at $35 and going on sale Friday at noon. Morissette has sold more than 60 million albums worldwide in her 20-year-plus career, and became a sensation in the industry upon the release of her 1995 album "Jagged Little Pill," which included hits such as the angst-y "You Oughta Know," the melodic "Ironic," and the upbeat tunes "Hand in My Pocket" and "You Learn." The Canadian-born singer-songwriter later scored two additional No. 1 hits in her home country with "Thank U" and "Hands Clean." She has earned more than two-dozen awards throughout her career, including seven Grammy Awards and 13 Juno Awards.

ComedianBill Engvall comes to Seneca Allegany Events Center on Sunday, Nov. 16, for a 5 p.m. performance. Tickets start at $25 and are on sale now. Engvall continues to tour periodically with fellow "Blue Collar" comedians Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy, and is known for the catchphrase, "Here's your sign." The former American Comedy Awards Comic of the Year also starred in numerous television, including "Mobile Home Disasters," "The Bill Engvall Show" and "Country Fried Home Videos." He also reached the finals of the hit reality TV competition "Dancing with the Stars" in 2013.

Classic rock group Steve Miller Band returns to Seneca Niagara Events Center for the first time since July 2011 for another spellbinding performance on Friday, Nov. 21, at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $40 and go on sale Monday, Aug. 11, at noon. Concertgoers can expect to hear many of Steve Miller Band's timeless hits, such as "The Joker," "Rock'n Me," "Fly like an Eagle," "Abracadabra," "Jet Airliner" and "Take the Money and Run."

The intimate 440-seat Bear's Den Showroom at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel will continue to be busy on weekends this fall, with an additional five acts booked for September through November. First up for a 7 p.m. performance on Sunday, Sept. 14, is "A Tribute to Martin & Lewis Starring Tom Stevens and Tony Lewis." Tickets start at $20 and are on sale now. The evening is billed as a show that "captures the essence of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis with not only looks and mannerisms, but also the music, the laughter and the love."

Three repeat performers to the Bear's Den Showroom return in mid-October, including Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes on Oct. 17, John Hiatt on Oct. 18 and Marc Cohn on Oct. 24. For all three shows, performances begin at 8 p.m., ticket prices start at $35, and the on-sale date is Monday at noon.

The New Jersey-based Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes often play with Bruce Springsteen, and their ever-popular booking at the Bear's Den always sells out quickly. Hiatt, who has a star on Nashville's Walk of Fame and earned the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting, is known for the writing the songs "Have a Little Faith in Me," "Thing Called Love" and "This Is How We Make a Broken Heart." His just-released album, "Terms of My Surrender," covers his blues roots. The Grammy-winning Cohn is cherished for heartfelt ballads such as "Walking in Memphis" and "True Companion."

Finally, on Saturday, Nov. 8, at 8 p.m., the Bear's Den welcomes guitarist Coco Montoya for an evening of blues. Tickets start at $20 and are on sale now. Montoya played in the band John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, following the footsteps of other blues guitarist greats such as Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor.

Tickets for all shows will be available at Seneca Casino box offices, www.ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations or by phone at 800-745-3000. A list of confirmed entertainment at Seneca Casinos is as follows:
