Sauce Boss and the Planet Gumbo volunteers at Mexico Beach: Su Ecenia, Ruthie Wharton, Sally Morton, Tanya Hollady, and Jeanie Barrett

THANKS!
To all who contributed to Planet Gumbo‘s fund raiser for the Ground Zero Mexico Beach White Tent. We took $1200 in the form of Lowes gift cards. Great job, Linda Blythe at Ground Zero, and to all the Planet Gumbo volunteers who drove to Mexico Beach to help us. We had a great time on the beach playing and cooking gumbo with the survivors of Hurricane Michael! In 2006, Planet Gumbo also brought music and gumbo to New Orleans and Buras, Louisiana, where Hurricane Katrina hit so hard. The damage in Buras LA was similar to Mexico Beach, leveling houses and leaving only slabs of concrete. In Buras, I saw a refrigerator lodged in a tree fifteen feet off the ground. Watch the video that Mary Wharton produced from our trip to Louisiana.  

Planet Gumbo is self contained. Able to bring music and gumbo anywhere this van can go

Central Florida folks, check out my column in  Static Live Magazine and online

My Book
It’s a cookbook and a songbook with a memoir sandwiched between the photos, music, and recipes. There’s an address on the Internet to listen to the audio files of two-dozen tunes in the book, while you are reading. Listen to the song as you read the story, and also make a dish as you go along from the cookbook to get the taste of the Sauce Boss. The recipes are dynamite, the story is a page turner, and the music is smokin. All the recipes and songs follow the story of my life. It all fits together like the puzzle that is Bill “Sauce Boss” Wharton.  Available in paperback at all the shows and on Amazon.   Perfect gift for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day!

 


“100% Pure” Kickstarter, and a New Video

September 3, 2014

SyracuseSBThe vinyl is 180 grams of pure Sauce Boss
The “100% Pure” Kickstarter project is half way there. Recorded mostly in the one man band format, with a large rig, the sound is grand. Y’all!  Come and get it! The Kickstarter project ends on Sept 16. That’s not even two weeks away. Pre-order  “100% Pure”  autographed vinyl or CD HERE.  Also, PLEASE, share it with your friends.

BigTopHere’s a video of  “Peckerwood”, shot at the Big Top Chatauqua in Bayfield, Wisconsin. That gig rocks! Always nice to get a standing ovation. The video gives you an idea of what the album sounds like. Peckerwood is a mythical land somewhere in North Florida. Mythical because when you get there, it’s mainly in your mind.

 

 

 


This guy is the best
. From the Sound Shop in Detroit, Michigan. Easy does it, Motor City Josh. In the studio, he’s way cool, super chill, and highly efficient. Thanks for making it easy for me in so many ways. That’s what I like about Detroit. Good people doin good work. It’s a tradition.

And thanks to Eric Ilasenko for getting the shots.
