CCR, Diamond Rio Coming to Salamanca

SALAMANCA, NY – A vocally-talented country/Christian group and one of the defining rock bands of the early 1970’s will kick off entertainment at Seneca Casinos on a high note to start the new year. Diamond Rio and Creedence Clearwater Revisited (pictured) will play at Seneca Allegany Events Center respectively on Jan. 12 and Jan. 27, and tickets for both shows start at a bargain-priced $20.

Country/Christian band Diamond Rio comes to Seneca Allegany Events Center for a 7 p.m. show on Saturday, Jan. 12. The group scored a No. 1 hit with their very first single, “Meet in the Middle,” in 1991, and recorded four more No. 1 hits throughout their career with “How Your Love Makes Me Feel,” “One More Day,” “Beautiful Mess” and “I Believe.” In 2011, Diamond Rio won its first GRAMMY® Award for Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album for its most recent release, The Reason. They also have earned top group honors a combined six times through the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music.

Creedence Clearwater Revisited is anchored by the drummer and bassist of Creedence Clearwater Revival – one of the defining rock bands of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. The group – often referred to as simply “CCR” – was inducted into the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame in 1993 and has sold more than 30 million albums in the U.S. alone. Two of CCR’s albums reached No. 1 on the charts, and just some of its most popular hits that still play on the airwaves today include “Proud Mary,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Down on the Corner,” “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” and “Lookin’ Out My Back Door.” The ever-touring Creedence Clearwater Revisited today plays approximately 100 shows each year and comes to Seneca Allegany Events Center for a 5 p.m. show on Sunday, Jan. 27.
