He recently got a shoutout from President Jimmy Carter.

During the pandemic, Bill Wharton—aka Sauce Boss, who’s playing Dunedin on Saturday, June 17—had one of the biggest breaks of his life.

The gumbo chef/blues guitarist composed the score for “Jimmy Carter: Rock and Roll President,” a film of which was praised by 39 himself.

Wharton is also the subject of Jimmy Buffett’s 1999 song “I Will Play for Gumbo,” and while Dunedin Brewery has some kick ass wings, we’re definitely saving room for the Boss’ own homemade gumbo which he promises to dish out at this free concert.
