Ross to play at Seneca Niagara; Guy at Seneca Allegany

The April entertainment announced today by Seneca Resorts & Casinos presents fans the opportunity to see performances by two musical giants at two top resorts.

On Saturday, April 9, the incomparable Diana Ross will grace the performance stage at the Seneca Niagara Events Center. Her hits with The Supremes helped put Motown on the musical map. Her wide-ranging solo career further elevated her to mega-superstar status. Through it all, Ross' voice has helped to define the history of popular music the world over.

Hit songs, ranging from "Where Did Our Love Go," Stop! In the Name of Love" and "Someday We'll Be Together" to "Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand)," "Touch Me In The Morning" and "Endless Love," helped spawn record sales of more than 140 million, leading Ross to be recognized as one of the most successful female music artists in history.

Tickets for this 8 p.m. performance start at $55 and go on sale at noon Friday, Jan. 22.

The Seneca Allegany Events Center in Salamanca will take center stage on Saturday, April 23, when legendary bluesman Buddy Guy performs at 7 p.m. The blues icon and six-time Grammy Award winner continues to produce powerful, important and chart-topping music, nearly 50 years after he first started recording. His 2015 album, "Born to Play Guitar," reached No. 1 on Billboard's top blues album charts in August.

The list of accolades Guy has accumulated throughout the course of his career, including induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, is nearly immeasurable. To generations of guitarists, including music's biggest stars, he is the standard by which all are judged, and his live performances are the stuff of legend.

Tickets for his show start at $25 and also go on sale Friday.

These two shows are part of a robust April entertainment lineup set for Niagara Falls and Salamanca. Other shows announced include:

•Funnyman and impressionist extraordinaire Frank Caliendo (April 2, Seneca Allegany Events Center).
