Today my guest is Dolores Manzanares, who will share her experiences working with bands in California
Dolores Manzanare's Bio
1951 - 1960: Began singing in church choir, school chorus in grade school, middle school and high school.
1960 - 1965 Joined a band and we played mostly Rock and Oldies But Goodies (5 years)
1965 - 1975 Took a break and raised a family.
1975 - 1990 Returned to college, took singing classes, and formed a band of my own, "The 2002 Band." I studied to become an educator and worked on week-ends with my band. I was the lead singer and we played throughout Southern California for various groups and organizations, fund-raisers, weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, hospital Christmas parties, New Year's Parties, and played for the Arthur Murray Dance Studios.
We played all genres of music from Oldies to Swing, ballads, latin music, polkas, tangos, waltzes, fox trot, rock and disco.
I was able to juggle raising my two boys, attending college, graduated in 1981 with my Bachelor's and a Teaching Credential in Bilingual Education, then, my Master's Degree, also in Bilingual Education in 1988. I continued to perform with my band until 1990, at which time, I felt I needed to just focus on my teaching career. I totaled 20 years as a vocalist and musical percussionist. I thoroughly enjoyed entertaining groups and organizations throughout Southern California.
I must say that Teaching and a Musical Career were two very rewarding careers for me. I was able to sing on television, radio, and record at a recording studio, at age 21. Those were exciting times for me.
In her memoir Dolores De Luce, a five-foot Diva in six-inch heels, takes us on the bumpy ride from her grey days in New Jersey through her escape to the refuge of the tumultuous post-Stonewall days in ‘70s Los Angeles and Gay San Francisco. After giving birth to a mixed-race daughter and being rejected by her Italian American family, Dolores created a new family with the most unlikely people under the most unusual circumstances.
Dolores confesses to living with the notorious film legend, Divine, and being baptized in the filth of John Waters, selling barbiturates to most of the pill-popping homos on the West Coast, and then sleeping with half of them once their high kicked in. Edie Massey, Divine’s film mother, proclaimed Dolores the illegitimate daughter of Divine and Rip Taylor declared her the winner of $1.98 Beauty Show. Even Joan Rivers approved of her racy video that the Fox censors, deemed too dirty to air on her late night talk show.
Readers who devoured the Counter Culture Diva's confessions in her first memoir, My Life, a Four Letter Word, will be delighted to know that Blow Jobs, picks up where that book ended. It takes the reader up and down the ladder to stardom, and brings you up to date, revealing the fate of this aging Diva.
While dropping more names than the Beverly Hills 'Who's Who', our Diva brings unique insight to the lives of the rich and famous from her fly-on-the=wall view. From being Dean Martin’s maid to a bimbo’s slave that led to pubic hair trimming on XXX film sets she spares no details.
