Hot N Heavy is the eleventh CD from the Sauce Boss, featuring his own swampy slide guitar blues. Drummer Justin Headley, and tag team bass players, Robert “Freightrain” Parker, and David “Biscuit” Miller provide a slammin’ bottom, making this album, by far, the heaviest yet. Biscuit Miller has played with Lonnie Brooks for decades. Freightrain did a long stint with Florida Harp icon, Rock Bottom.
The “Marquis de Swamp” says “Welcome to my habitat” over a sonaral bed of frogs, bugs, and who knows what crawled out of the swamp for this noir party. Wharton threw caution out the window with this album, as “Get Naked and Surf” suggests. Is “Lonesome Rider” a mid life crisis, or just a fond remembrance of one of his long motorcycle odysseys?
“That’s How It Feels” walks homeless streets, with the singer walking down the dark alleys of existence. Then “Gonna Be All Right” throws it right in the face of despair and shines a light over it all. “Don’t Know How To Tell You” mellows down into a smooth groove like coming home to Mama.
The title cut is a salacious double entendre with a raucous back beat suitable for lap dancing. Peppered in amongst the songs are grooves of the gumbo. “Okra”, “Andoulle”, “Hot Sauce”, “Chicken In The Gumbo” give the whole proceedings spice and contrast.
After serving free gumbo to over 165,000 hungry fans, after playing and cooking in homeless shelters all over the country, after twenty years on the road, the Sauce Boss is going for it. Blues/ rock/ gospel/ surf / zydeco/ swamp/ funk in a blender. It’s a mess o’ fun.

HOT N HEAVY PEACH SAUCE
A few years ago we market-tested a sauce we called “Hot Q”. We have just recently tweaked the recipe and the packaging, and we are now releasing a fresh, new improved batch for all y’all. Everyone who had tried it is going crazy over it. Hot N Heavy Peach Sauce is the latest creation from the kitchen of Bill “Sauce Boss” Wharton. Although it is a great sauce for BBQ, its other applications are many. It can be used in soups, it can be a topping for seafood, pork, chicken, beef or beans and rice. It’s a refreshing salad dressing – sweet and tangy for stir-fry, and for dipping, it rivals Ketchup. Hot N Heavy Peach Sauce should not be over cooked because the peaches are so delicate, however it works great in a crock pot with chicken, or pork. For BBQ, wait until the meat is almost done to glaze it. Try chicken and ribs for an incredible edible, or even tofu. YUMMM!!!
Here’s a couple of recipes for Hot N Heavy Peach Sauce.
Jeanie Thompson’s recipe is simple.
Throw 4 chicken breasts in a crock pot.
Cover em up with Hot N Heavy Peach Sauce.
Turn it on and go to work.
When you get home, it’s ready.
Hot N Heavy Broiled Mullet
Ah yes, the much maligned mullet. The Florida Seafood Assoc. tried to change the name to “Lisa” a few years ago to improve its image. “Trash fish” it’s called, but to its critics, I say this. There’s nothing better than fresh caught mullet. Here’s an easy, delicious, and so much fun, Sauce Boss recipe for fresh mullet with Hot N Heavy Peach Sauce slurped all over it.
Jus take yer mullet, son, and grease it up good with olive oil, , and throw it in the broiler. When it feels so good , it might explode, when the fish is almost ready to pop, when yer done doin what yer doin, slosh the Hot N Heavy all over it and stick it in one more time. I bet bet it only takes a minute to finish the job. Feels so good. Rompin time guaranteed!
