Jazz is alive and well in South Texas! Toro Flores brings you a truly original sound with influences of jazz, classical and latin traditions. His compositions center around the strengths of the individual musicians in the ensemble as well as featuring the ensemble itself. As always, our kitchen and bar are fully open for dinner service. See you at the show! More about Toro: Toro Flores is a multi-instrumentalist and music educator from San Antonio, Texas. Mr. Flores has been performing and playing music for 35 years making his mark on marimba performance. As well as being San Antonio's premiere mallet performer (marimba, vibraphone, and xylophone) Flores is also an accomplished guitar player, playing with many notable San Antonio area bands and musicians. He has covered all musical styles prized in Texas ranging from country to reggae, from Jazz to blues and beyond. However, Flores found his calling playing Latin Jazz. Flores, with his various bands including Zarabande and recently Hot Sauce, has thrilled audiences with his brilliant mallet wizardry and emotive guitar playing. Extremely well received performances in San Antonio's Jazz's Alive festival and the Texas Jazz Festival are notable highlights among others, and Flores has shared the stage with many international acts.

Toro Flores, aka Alfred Flores, continues to recreate and innovate his vast musical talents to always deliver a compelling and world class performance.
