TRAVELING!

This tour takes us all around the East in a few days.  Sometimes, that’s the way she goes. Here’s where we are going.

SAUCE BOSS LYRICS AVAILABLE
I’ve had some inquires about the lyrics of my songs.  Over the years, a lot of singers/bands have covered the Sauce Boss.  I’m always glad to hear a different version of my tunes.  So now you can access the lyrics from four of my albums.
Here’s the link.

SAUCE BOSS TO BE ON NATIONAL PUBLIC TELEVISION
The nationally syndicated show, “My Generation” will feature the Sauce Boss.  The program sent a crew to St. Louis to film eight hours of performance and interviews with Bill Wharton and his band.  Stay tuned for air times.

NOW IS THE TIME OF YEAR TO START THINKING ABOUT ORDERING CASES of Liquid Summer Hot Sauce or our new Peach Sauce. It’s a great way to share the love.

THAI SOONG 9448 COLONIAL DRIVE, ORLANDO, FL 34761    407-822-8200

I have eaten a lot of Thai food.  I’m a spicy guy. And there’s none spicier than your Great, Great Grandma from Thailand.  Whooooeee! Deeze guys will light you up!

So when I found Soong Thai, right off the Sunshine State Parkway, right on the way to south Florida, right at supper time, with a frightful hunger for a HOT meal, I was in heaven. Truly a great restaurant.  Not too pricey, but with an attention to detail which guarantees every dish is it’s own dining experience.  Here’s their description of their restaurant: “At Soong Thai, we take great care in preparing cuisine handed down for centuries, adjusted to today’s tastes and served in an authentic manner.”

I believe em. I had to try the frog legs. My friend Jeffrey Clements said, “If I had to choose my last meal, the Soong Thai frog legs would be it”. And, believe me, my friend Jeffrey knows his food. Pad Thai as light and flavorful as I have ever had.  Tom Kai Gai Soup. Yumm. I also tried the “Amazing Eggplant”.  Made me stupid. I kept saying, “Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!”  Hence the name.

Fried eggplant, over a bed of steamed broccoli, in a big puddle of spicy peanut sauce. Garnished with green onions and red peppers. And more glistening peanut sauce dribbled over the top.  “Over the top” is the operative term here.  The dumplings are sublime. I’m looking forward to my next trip south.
Lunch: Monday – Friday – 11:30 AM to 3:00
Dinner: Monday – Saturday – 4 to 10, Sunday – 4 to 9

SOUTH FLORIDA/MIDWEST TOUR, FLORIDITA, AND LIQUID SUMMER BLOODY MARY

August 4, 2010

WOW! What a tour.  Here I am in Ottawa, jamming with the Voices of the Wetlands. From the left to right, Cyril Neville, Sauce Boss, Tab Benoit, Johnny Sansone, Marsha Ball, and Anders Osborne. Lighting it up!  Thanks to all on this tour, Scott Sterling at the Dinosaur BBQ, Mark Monahan and everyone at the Ottawa Bluesfest, the great folks from the Cape Fear Blues Cruise, Daughter Mary who put us up at her country estate, the Washington DC Parrot Heads, for their generous benefit for Planet Gumbo, And the Big Owl Tiki Bar on the Maryland Shore for an unforgettable afternoon adventure.

Now its off to Miami, Key Largo, and the Midwest for another killer adventure. HERE’S THE SCHEDULE

HOT N HEAVY AIRPLAY
Sirius Radio’s Bluesville channel has been playing “Marquis de Swamp” a whole lot.  Justin’s mom said she heard it four times one day.  Keep it rolling. Here’s the link to request yer fave Sauce Boss tunes.

EL FLORIDITA SEAFOOD RESTAURANT
13501 S.W. 136 STREET MIAMI, FL 305-233-7575
8399 S.W. 40 STREET MIAMI, FL 305-221-1511

YUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMM!

A real find, a people’s restaurant, none of that Miami glitz. Just great fresh seafood, superior service, fabulous prices, and unpretentious friendly vibe.  This is what I’ve been looking for.  These folks are really proud of what they do, and there is an esprit that’s evident the moment you walk in the door.  It’s the Old World reverence for sustinance. The rice is light and fluffy, the whole grilled snapper is two pounds of marinated bliss.  Five kinds of Paella share the menu with varied preparations of seafood and home made pasta. A surprising $12 bottle of Napa Valley cab blew my mind.  Ten minutes after opening, it mellowed down into a smooth finish.  Breakfast  with dynamite café con leche included starts at $2.99, and it’s served all day long. Try that at Starbuck’s.
