SALAMANCA — Memories, songs and laughter will fill the Seneca Allegany Event Center at 8 p.m. Saturday with a presentation of “The Terry Bradshaw Show.”
Legendary quarterback, sportscaster and living personality Terry Bradshaw will entertain audiences with his jokes, singing skills and stories from his unique career. On his fast-paced variety show, he will interact with audiences by sharing his personal, first-hand accounts of a life lived on and off the football pitch.
“There will be lots of stories, laughs and songs. You never know what we’ll talk about,” Bradshaw told reporters in an interview. “Besides having a great time, I hope people will say I can sing. I just want them to leave feeling good and smiling.
