Even without a pot of gumbo, Bill “The Sauce Boss” Wharton can still heat up the stage. “(Bill) Wharton specializes in the blues, but also gets plenty of New Orleans R&B in the mix too,” says Vintage Guitar magazine. “In fact, at times he brings to mind The Radiators mixed with The Neville Brothers. His slide playing ﬁts the tunes brilliantly… His acoustic playing shines, too… Wharton’s vocals are just how you want them – rough and ready and they ﬁt the tunes perfectly.” The Washington Post says, “Wharton is not only a ﬁne slide guitarist… but serious about the blues in an almost evangelical fashion. He respects its origins as a ﬁeld hand’s survival kit.” Haven’t heard Bill Wharton play? You’ll never forget him once you do. With his distinctive slide guitar sound, wrought out of his ’53 Telecaster like a man beggin’ for mercy, and slung through a 1948 Fender amp like a dark horse running through the night, the Sauce Boss has a truly authentic sound that leaves you looking for something you thought you’d lost, but in fact you never knew you had.
