Question: How did a world-traveling musician end up cooking gumbo and playing for free at homeless shelters?
Answer: It started with my Liquid Summer Hot Sauce. I would carry a few bottles to my shows, then I began cooking gumbo to show the sauce off. I give the gumbo away. I fed well over 200,000 people for free at my shows. I then took it to a new level when I began to use my days off on the road playing and cooking for some folks that could really use a bowl of gumbo. I have played shelters nationwide and a few in Canada. It dovetails into my work and the rewards are deep in my soul.

I play electric bass and had the pleasure of jamming with the Sauce Boss at an impromptu session after a big Parrot Head event somewhere on the west coast of FL a few years ago.
He’s a truly wonderful guy and one heck of a fine musician! Happy to see him on your site.
btw, my new PR 35 should be here tomorrow 🙂
