Five-time Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist and vocalist Diana Krall will cap off November entertainment at Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino. Krall will perform inside the Seneca Niagara Events Center Nov. 29.

A variety of concerts inside the Bear's Den Showroom will take place throughout the month, including Thunderbird Joe & The Medicine Show, The Monkees lead singer Micky Dolenz, Williams & Ree: The Indian and the White Guy and Bobby Hendricks' Drifters.

One of the pre-eminent artists in jazz today, Krall will perform at Seneca Niagara Events Center at 8 p.m. as part of a U.S. tour in support of her upcoming new album, "Wallflower." Tickets start at $35 and are on sale now.

Krall has sold more albums than any other female jazz artist of the past 30 years, establishing herself as one of the best-selling and most beloved performers of her generation (and one whose recordings, thus far, have earned her nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum album designations).

"Wallflower," to be released Oct. 21, includes Krall's interpretations of some of the greatest pop songs of all time. It is produced by 16-time Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster and includes an unreleased composition from Paul McCartney ("If I Take You Home Tonight").

Kicking off November performances in the intimate Bear's Den Showroom Saturday, Nov. 1, is Thunderhand Joe & The Medicine Show, a premier Native American rock band led by a former drummer for the band Redbone. Tickets start at $20 and are on sale now. Thunderhand Joe and his band will provide an evening of rhythm and blues, rock 'n' roll, country and funk as part of an overall unique, cultural sound.

The Bear's Den Showroom will turn back to calendar to 1966 on Friday, Nov. 14, at 8 p.m., as The Monkees singer Dolenz performs timeless hits such as "I'm A Believer," "Daydream Believer" and "Last Train to Clarksville." Tickets start at $35 and are on sale now. Dolenz, the drummer and lead singer of the 1960s television band The Monkees, is an Emmy-winning, multi-platinum-record-selling, modern-day cult icon.

Williams & Ree: The Indian and the White Guy returns to the Bear's Den Showroom after a previous visit in January that had the crowd roaring with laughter. On Saturday, Nov. 15, the duo will perform a matinee show at 3 p.m. Tickets start at $15. That will be followed by an 8 p.m. performance (tickets start at $20).

Finally, on Friday, Nov. 21, at 8 p.m., Bobby Hendricks' Drifters will fill the Bear's Den Showroom with classic R&B and soul. Tickets start at $25 and are on sale now. As a solo artist in the late 1950s and early 1960s, Hendricks scored hits on the Billboard charts with songs such as "Itchy Twitchy Feeling" and "Psycho." He also joined The Drifters in 1957, and continues today to carry on the group's legacy with live performances.

Additional acts at the Bear's Den Showroom this November include Coca Montoya on Nov. 8, and the remaining three comedians participating in the eight-week comedy series sponsored by 97 Rock: Colin Jost (Nov. 6), Brent Morin (Nov. 13) and Michael Che (Nov. 20).

In addition, Seneca Niagara Events Center welcomes Roger Hodgson, the singer-songwriter formerly of Supertramp, Nov. 7, and Steve Miller Band on Nov. 21.

Tickets for all shows are available at select retail outlets inside the Seneca Casinos, via www.ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations or by phone at 800-745-3000.
