The Manteca Sunrise Kiwanis Pumpkin Fair this past weekend included a performance by Delta College custodian Robert Flores.
Flores is a member of SteelGlass.
“We could play anywhere from one’s or twice a month to ones every three months depending on what we are doing. We mostly do events and large that’s why we don’t do so Manny gigs if can take smaller gigs we can play a lot more,” said Flores.
Flores band includes Santos Gonzales on lead vocals and bass, Myron Small in on lead vocals and horn and John Wise on guitar.
Gonzales has a Delta connection too – he’s a former student.
Flores has played at Delta many times in the past with various bands and has been playing throughout the valley for more than 20 years.
“We played at every event across the valley at one time to another,” Flores said.
Those events and locations include: Lodi Street Fair, Tracy Dry Bean Festival, Sacramento Radisson Hotel, Lincoln Center Friday Night Live and the Stockton Asparagus Festival.
“We do classic rock band with up to date songs,” he said.
Flores has preformed with SteelGlass, the local band out of Stockton, for 3 to 4 years now.
“We usually practice once a week and if we have a gigs coming up we practice twice a week and we practice in Stockton in two various area, one is location in a basement at a friends house and one at a storage shed which is actually we’re people go to storage at the company and we rent out the storage unit and practice in it, other times we’ll go to fellow band members house and go practice, do that,” he said.
The Pumpkin Festival was a two-day event with live music on two stages, food booths, vendors and rides for children.
Flores was a hit at the fair and plans to return next year to preform.
