The Sauce Boss, a Tallahassee native and 2017 Florida Music Award-winning Bluesman and will play the High Dive in downtown Gainesville Sunday, June 10, 2018.

The legendary performer (as chronicled in Jimmy Buffett’s 1999 hit “I Will Play for Gumbo”) Bill “Sauce Boss” Wharton brings his Florida slide guitar Blues, his gumbo, and his own hot sauce to every multi-sensory performance. His show includes a culinary demonstration with audience stirring and sampling the gumbo.

Blues rising star Albert Castiglia’s 2016 album Big Dog featured Wharton’s song “Let the Big Dog Eat” and the album was atop the Roots Blues Charts for 12 weeks.

The Sauce Boss is a powerhouse of energy with his one-man band. Florida swamp-funk slide guitarist Wharton has been a musician for over a half a century. On his 1989 New Year’s Eve gig, The Sauce Boss splashed a bottle of his Liquid Summer Hot Sauce into a huge pot of simmering gumbo, feeding the entire audience. The rest is history. 200,000 bowls later, he’s still feeding the masses for free at his shows. The Sauce Boss show is a soul shouting picnic of bluesy, rock and roll brotherhood.

NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Morning Edition” have both covered the Sauce Boss. CNN and EXTRA sent film crews to New York City Sauce Boss extravaganzas, The Food Network’s series “Extreme Cuisine” visited the Sauce Boss on location in New York, and another Food Network series “Keith Famie’s Adventures” filmed a Sauce Boss show in Miami. The Sauce Boss is the only personality that’s been featured in “Living Blues”, “GQ”, AND “Gourmet Magazine”.

Also performing will be Gainesville’s Big Time Juke & the Joints, a band that gives a particular Florida spin on Chicago and Texas Blues styles.

General Admission is $15, with NCFBS members getting in for $8. Students and veterans with ID get in for $5.
