BJ Thomas made a much awaited stateside return to the area after some seven years Saturday evening. While he did play the Fallsview Casino in 2016, it had been some seven years that he played a nearby show on this side of the border. He played to a near full house inside the cozy Riviera Theatre. The laid back atmosphere played a big part in the evening’s festivities. Continue reading

Country Legend Charley Pride made an ultra rare area appearance at the Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino Saturday evening.

Even at 84-years old the country crooner was able to wow the crowd with a near two hour performance. Pride belted out many of his 40 #1 country hits and sounded really strong in doing so.
