    Slide guitarist / vocalist Bill ‘Sauce Boss’ Wharton’s musical act is an engaging mix of his own swampy Florida blues while cooking a big pot of gumbo and serving it to the audience. Wharton’s ‘Sauce Boss’ events are a soul-shouting picnic of rock & roll brotherhood—and at the end of the show, everyone eats. Between the musical performance and the cooking, Wharton’s headset microphone is integral to keeping it all moving and, for this, he relies on his ISOMAX headset… View this post
