Greg Koch: Milwaukee native Greg Koch has forged a successful career as a guitar player's guitarist. He has been called "fiendishly talented" by author and former editor- in-chief of Guitar Player Magazine Tom Wheeler and "scary good" by guitar phenom Joe Bonamassa. In addition to his 15 releases on multiple record labels which feature his unique take on a variety of American guitar styles and his versatile compositions, Koch is also a best-selling author and video instructor for music publisher Hal Leonard. Greg is a contributing columnist for a variety of guitar magazines including Guitar Player Magazine which listed Greg’s “Chief’s Blues” in their “40 Badass Blues Solos You Must Hear” and Premier Guitar. For the last few years Greg is renowned for his wildly popular internet videos (which number in the thousands with views exceeding 50 million) originating from the legendary Colorado guitar shop Wildwood Guitars.

Jim Liban is the reigning harp player in Milwaukee, and although he toured the Midwest and both coasts for 15 years fronting his band, Shortstuff, he’s generally kept close to home, all the while developing a word-of-mouth reputation as one of the "great undiscovered" on his instrument. He’s also known as a fine writer, penning songs for John Mayall, Johnny Winter and the Legendary Blues Band, among others, and his live set list has long been built around a mix of his own songs with favorites and rarities from the blues and roots traditions. Accolades from national and international blues harmonica players attest to Liban’s artistry: “one of the greatest harmonica players in the world” Kim Wilson “Jim is one of the great harp players of all time. He was doing it before it was a fad, he scared me” Rod Piazza “…simply one of the very best to ever pick up a harmonica” Rick Estrin

Jimmy Voegeli: Leader of award-winning band The Jimmys, keyboard whiz/vocalist Jimmy Voegeli is a Hammond Organ Artist who's won multiple MAMA (Madison Area Music Award) and WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) awards for "Keyboardist of the Year.” During the day Jimmy helps out on his family's fifth-generation dairy farm. They till 1,500 acres of crop land, milk over 200 Brown Swiss dairy cows; and export embryos, bull semen, and live animals all over the world! 

Third Coast Blues Collective: Anchored by Milwaukee blues veterans Matt Liban on drums and Kurt Koenig on bass, Third Coast Blues Collective is a loosely affiliated group of musicians bound by friendship, mutual respect, and a love of blues and roots music. We present unique combinations of the best blues talent from SE Wisconsin and Chicago in performances that deliver exceptional quality, excitement, and energy.
