Sandy, Tony and Small Paul
Probably our most precious story involves brothers Santiago (Sandy) and Tony Flores and “Small Paul” Hamilton. Starting way back when they were teenagers (ages ranging from 13 to 19 yrs old) these three local legends performed together in a Sandy Flores–led R&B / Soul band, The Soulsations, a top Phoenix-area band in the 1960’s. Throughout the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s the three crossed paths performing with each other in many popular R&B /Soul bands that worked with many local stars as well as performed with and/or backed up many National Acts. Forty years since the start of their professional careers as teenagers, they are back together providing the driving rhythm and lead vocals of COLD SHOTT and The Hurricane Horns and entertaining audiences all around Arizona!!!
