Bill Engvall at Potawatomi

Plenty of cowboys, ranchers and bull riders call Texas home. Various country artists do too. But comedians, they tend to come from elsewhere, unless you’re Bill Engvall. A native of Texas, Engvall found himself like many young adults after they graduate high school—in college with little direction. Dropping out of college and working a series of odd jobs basically led him to what ultimately piqued his interest, comedy. He performed at open mic nights in Dallas until he moved to Hollywood to pursue comedy full time. Bill’s comedy career is a storied one that follows a series of triumphs, which led to awards, and more work. He was featured on some late night talk shows here and there, and later, became a regular on others. But it wasn’t until pairing up with friend and fellow comedian, Jeff Foxworthy, that Bill’s star began to shine brightly. After a few successful appearances on The Jeff Foxworthy Show, Bill began releasing records of his own brand of satirical and observational comedy. Tickets $65/$55/$45 Performance in Potawatomi Expo Center Must be 21 years of age or older

Guests should bring their dancing shoes as the venue will house a giant dance floor for what is sure to be a lively performance.

Known as the “King of the Accordion,” Ayala is a master accordionist, vocalist and songwriter with a career spanning over 40 years and more than 105 recorded albums. Ayala began playing the accordion at age six and went on to record his first hit single as a teenager in 1963 alongside Cornelio Reyna. Ayala and Reyna revolutionized and re-invented modern conjunto and norteño music, elevating its mass appeal while recording more than 20 albums together. Ayala formed his legendary band Ramón Ayala y Sus Bravos del Norte in 1971. Over the years the group went through several transitions while topping the charts in Mexico and the United States with hits such as “Un Rinconcito En El Cielo” and “Chaparra de Mi Amor.” Ayala’s band members include Fidencio Ayala, Jose Luis Ayala, Mario Marichalar, David Laure and Raul Rosales. Ayala has earned four Grammy Awards during his career and has been nominated a total of ten times between the American and Latin Grammy Awards.
