Sauce Boss not only plays slide, sings his tamales off, makes gumbo, and feeds everybody… he also plays 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.”
The Sauce Boss has cooked gumbo on stage for over 200,000 for free. He mixes his spicy slide guitar with his Liquid Summer Hot Sauce right into every night’s performance of his own gumbo recipe. It’s a multi-sensory soul shouting picnic of rock and roll brotherhood. And at the end of the night, everybody eats.
“The Sauce Boss does his cooking on stage
Stirring and a’ singing for his nightly wage
Sweating and a’ fretting from his head to his toe, playing and buffetting with the gumbo”
from “I Will Play for Gumbo”
