The Bobby Flores Birthday Bash is right around the corner and the Grammy Award-winning performer has been hard at work with several projects.
“I am currently trying to finish work on a gospel album,” Flores said. “This is something that I have been working on for a while now, but with everything else I have been doing for myself and other artists, it’s been like a I’m a mechanic with a car sitting in his driveway; it’s a project.”
Flores has been working with several other artists on their respective albums while continuing to promote his own music.
“One of my really great friends has started playing with me,” Flores said. “Hank Singer, who has been featured with artists such as Hank Williams Jr., George Jones, Ronnie Milsap, and Leann Womack, has decided to play with us. We are truly honored to have him, as he is regarded as one of the best fiddle players on the planet. Singer actually gave me my first fiddle at the age of 14.”
Singer will be performing with Flores at the Bobby Flores Birthday Bash, set for Saturday, July 7, from 6-11:30 p.m. in the Floresville Event Center.
“It’s really one of my favorite times of the year,” Flores said. “Everyone out there is like family; it’s truly going to be a magical night. This year, I am planning on mixing it up a little bit by playing more steel guitar, mandolin, and classical guitar.”
As for the future, Flores said he has big plans for the coming months.
“Well, July 15 we are going to have the first Bobby Flores music camp out at the Coyote Resort in Wichita Falls,” Flores said. “There will be people flying in from Massachusetts, Mississippi, and New Mexico; it’s going to be a great time out there. Also, we are getting ready for our third annual Western Swing Cruise on Jan. 13. We will be giving away two tickets at the Bobby Flores Birthday Bash, so someone will be able to bring a loved one along for a great time.”
The Floresville Event Center is located at 600 S.H. 97 W. in Floresville. For more information on the birthday bash, contact Brenda Ullevig at 830-534-3569 or Brenda@bobbyfloresband.com.
