Asleep at the Wheel
Rosie Flores (born September 10, 1950 in San Antonio, Texas) is a rockabilly and country music artist. Her music blends rockabilly, honky tonk, jazz, and Western swing along with traditional influences from her Tex-Mex heritage. She currently resides in Austin, Texas, where August 31 was declared Rosie Flores Day by the Austin City Council in 2006.
Guitarist Rosie Flores was the namesake of the punk rock band Rosie and the Screamers before joining a rowdy countrified all-female band called Screamin' Sirens. The latter band produced a series of 7-inch singles and tracks for compilation albums before releasing a single full-length recording in 1987, an album called Voodoo.
