Bill "Sauce Boss" Wharton 

When: Sat., Aug. 10, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $15-20
Bill Wharton is a blues guitarist with a tinny, piercing tone, and a blues singer with a hoarse, aged voice; on fiery renditions of standards, the Florida bandleader plays and howls with satisfactory gusto. But Wharton's reputation stems largely from his stage show, which finds him suited in a chef's outfit and cooking a massive pot of gumbo as he performs. Nicknamed The Sauce Boss, he pours his own hot sauce into the simmer and gets back to the blues before, at set's end, serving up the onstage food. There's a shtick worth seeing, hearing and tasting. –Grayson Currin
