This collaboration between the amazing guitar firepower of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin’s Greg Koch, his son on drums, and the impressive Hammond B3 organ skills of Minneapolis’ Toby Marshall, produces a power trio not to be missed! Blues Rock Review writes “Koch’s compositions are an amalgam of rock, funk, jazz and country served up with heavy grooves and dynamic improvisations delivered with no small dose of humor and occasional wild abandon.” Koch is widely known for his lengthy tenure as an international ambassador for Fender Guitars. He is also a best-selling author and video instructor for music publisher Hal Leonard. 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.

A standout slide player, Tommy Bentz has often been touted as one of the best in the Midwest.

The Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge was formerly Patrick’s Cabaret and Chris Mozena’s space occupies an old firehouse near Hiawatha and Lake Street.
