The 'Indian and the White Guy' Deliver Musical Comedy at Seneca Niagara Casino on January 4

The 'Indian and the White Guy' Deliver Musical Comedy at Seneca Niagara Casino on January 4

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. – Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel welcomes hilarious musical comedy on Saturday, Jan. 4, as Williams & Ree performs twice inside the intimate 440-seat Bear’s Den Showroom. The duo, commonly known as “The Indian and the White Guy,” has performed together for 45 years.

Great seats are still available and start at $20 for the 3 p.m. matinee performance and $25 for the 8 p.m. evening performance. Tickets can be purchased at Seneca Casino box offices, Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations or by phone at 800-745-3000.

Williams & Ree share a unique ability to make people laugh, even if it comes from laughing at themselves – a trait which first drew them together in 1968. Bruce Williams and Terry Ree met at Black Hills State College in Spearfish, S.D., and played together in a band. Their comedic banter between songs soon became an even bigger draw than the music, and the comedy team was soon born.

How?  What we are asking is that between now and December 9, 2013, the public submit their suggestions via an online form at the end of this post.  The top three most suggested churches will move on to a final round of voting by the public at large beginning on December 10 and ending on December 15, 2013.  The church with the most votes will be the next the Buffalo Mass Mob attends.

fifty

the crackle of the overhead speaker,
usually mute after morning announcements,
interrupted our lesson.
someone must have thought
we should know what had happened in dallas.

what happened in dallas
that sent us streaming into the halls,
sobbing and confused,
leaning against the shoulders
of teachers and friends,
pained and numb all at once.

pained and numb all at once
that he was gone, not yet
knowing it would all change now,
the bright future diminished, and our eyes
fixed on tv screens for days after,

tv screens during the day,
usually verboten until after dinner,
while history played out in front of us
inside the little black and white box:
the bloody pink suit, the riderless horse, the casket
lying in state
