The Sauce Boss - 5:30pm
https://www.sauceboss.com/home
Over a million miles on the road, over 200,000 bowls of gumbo served for free, thousands of gigs, tons of hot sauce, scores of free concerts at homeless shelters..Bill “Sauce Boss” Wharton brings his high energy, gumbo stirring, swamp funk to the gig. For those who don’t know about the Sauce Boss, he brings his own hot sauce to the gig, and he cooks gumbo while smoking his slide guitar. At the en...d of the Show, everyone gets a bowl. Now he's added some new flavors to the “stew”. Sauce Boss not only plays slide, sings his tamales off, makes gumbo, and feeds everybody… he will also be playing a drum kit with his feet. “You take that 53 Telecaster, pump it through that 48 Fender amp, add a bass rig, mix in some drums, all simmered down over some funky swamp blues, and smothered with gumbo, and you got a recipe for the largest one-man band on the planet.”
