Lorrie Morgan Brings 'Enchanted Christmas' to
Seneca Allegany Events Center

SALAMANCA, NY – Seneca Resorts & Casinos will get in the holiday spirit with five days of holiday concerts. And with tickets starting at just $10, the performances will not only be festive but also very affordable. Lorrie Morgan will take the stage at Seneca Allegany Events Center in Salamanca, N.Y. from December 3 through 7.

Celebrating her 30th anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry this year, country sensation Lorrie Morgan will share the spirit of the holiday season with “Lorrie Morgan: An Enchanted Christmas.” One show will take place each day at Seneca Allegany Events Center – with 2 p.m. matinee shows on December 3, 4 and 7, and 8 p.m. evening shows on December 5 and 6. Tickets start at $10 and are on sale now. In addition to holiday favorites, Morgan will perform many of her hits from the past 25 years, such as “Five Minutes,” “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength,” “Watch Me” and “What Part of No.” A singer, songwriter, worldwide entertainer on the performing and theatrical stage, a producer, duet partner, wife, mother and now, a grandmother, Morgan has sold more than six million records, achieved 14 Top 10 hits and won four Female Vocalist of the Year awards in the 1990s. Her duet partners have included music icons such as Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis, Andy Williams and The Beach Boys. When inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1984, Morgan at the time was the youngest sister ever to achieve the honor at age 24.

Singer, actress and entertainer Deana Martin, the daughter of legendary crooner Dean Martin, will provide a jazz-and-standards twist on holiday favorites from December 10 through 14 at Seneca Niagara Events Center with “Deana Martin Christmas Show.” She will perform seven times throughout the five-day stretch, with 2 p.m. matinee shows on December 10, 11, 13 and 14, and 8 p.m. evening shows on December 11, 12 and 13. Tickets for all shows start at $15 and go on sale Thursday, Sept. 18 at noon. Martin debuted on her father’s television series, The Dean Martin Show, as a teenager in 1966 and later trained professionally in England, appearing in productions such as Romeo & Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew and Hamlet. Back in the U.S., she continued on a successful theater career before venturing into both music and television. Martin also is a New York Times bestselling author with the book Memories Are Made of This: Dean Martin through His Daughter’s Eyes. In 2011, she released a holiday album called “White Christmas,” and was joined by Andy Williams on the title track.
