Sandra Dolores As a musician, you’ve got to hustle to pay the bills, and that’s exactly what Sandra Dolores is doing. She hosts and performs at two back-to-back open mics every Wednesday night -first at Torch Club and then at Old Ironsides. Plus, she’s recently released a new EP called “Anima” and will be performing at the Delta King Riverboat Saturday. Dolores joins us between her many performances to perform a song from her new album and talk about the hustle of a young woman with a voice and a guitar.
