Greg Koch

 Greg Koch has been called a “twisted guitar genius” and “eclectic virtuoso” by guitar pundits. Tucked away in Midwestern obscurity, Greg Koch was a diamond in the ruff, the best kept secret in the guitar firmament. But nine years ago, Koch decided to make his move and conquer the world with his unique brand of guitarmaggedon.  

Koch’s fascination with all things guitar began early. After getting his first guitar at age 12, Koch learned by copying records. He studied jazz guitar at the University of Wisconsin and his Milwaukee-based band, Greg Koch and The Tone Controls, has become one of the region’s most popular and acclaimed bands. The release of his 2001 Favored Nations debut, The Grip, was met with a flood of rave reviews which alternately described Koch as “a twisted guitar genius” and “fiendishly talented.” And suddenly the Milwaukee guitarist was obscure no more.

 In the last nine years, the towering Koch has moved well beyond local hero status in the upper Midwest by becoming an internationally renowned guitarist, session ace, top-selling guitar instruction book/DVD writer, magazine columnist, radio personality, and comedian.

 Koch has travelled all over the world and has grown to become an in-demand, world class guitar clinician for both Fender Musical Instruments, and Hal Leonard Publishing Co. As a premier clinician for Fender, the world’s largest and most prestigious guitar and amplifier manufacturer, Koch has developed an exceptionally effective clinic style by bringing together world class chops and a humorous ability to articulate sounds and techniques with a genuine devotion to all things guitar.

 Koch’s relationship with musical publishing giant, Hal Leonard Corporation, has resulted in an extraordinarily successful catalog of guitar instructional materials including the rewrite of the Hal Leonard Guitar Method with the original author, Will Schmidt, which has become the top selling guitar method in the world.  His latest Hal Leonard guitar instruction book, “Guitar Clues: Operation Pentatonic,” is geared towards guitarists of all levels where as his latest DVD, HLGM “Guitar Licks: Lead Lines and Phrases in the Style of 25 Great Guitarists” demonstrates tricky licks by everyone from Albert King to Steve Vai. Koch’s many books and DVDs that are published by Hal Leonard sell hundreds of thousands of copies each year.

 Getting back to his roots, Koch is currently fronting The Greg Koch Trio, taking on the role of lead blues vocalist and maniacal guitar showman. Once again, Koch exhibits not only his versatility, but his raw vocal talent, clever song writing, and commitment to the blues genre. Koch succeeds in playing out his vision of pushing the blues to new limits, while at the same time remaining mindful of its past. 

 Over the years, Koch has released 11 CD’s. Five have been released internationally and feature predominantly original material; 2 with Steve Vai’s Favored Nations label, 2 with Europe’s Mascot-Provogue Records, 2 currently out on Peppercake/ZYX Records, including the recently released CD Nation Sack, which was a collaboration between the Greg Koch Trio and Texas vocal legend, Malford Milligan.


 “Greg Koch is one those players with chops to spare. But he’s also got a wonderful sense of humor and despite his talent, doesn’t take himself too seriously. Great chops, great imagination, and again, his sense of humor. It doesn’t get much better than this.”- Vintage Guitar Magazine, John Heidt, Editor

 “It seems Greg Koch can do the impossible. Not only can he rotate your head in a full Linda Blair 360 with his fiendish guitar chops, but he can also render spot-on imitations of favorite players while managing to assert a powerful artistic identity all his own.” - Tom Wheeler (Former editor-in-chief, Guitar Player Magazine, author “American Guitars,” “The Stratocaster Chronicles” and “The Soul of Tone.”)

 “Greg Koch is one of those rare guitarists that can blend various styles with a light hearted approach and a tremendous amount of technique. Hearing him play is inspiring to a guitar player to try to achieve greatness on the instrument.” - Steve Vai

 “I believe Greg Koch is pound for pound the best guitar player in the world today. His tone, feel and style are unrivaled in today’s guitar playing community. He is scary good. It was a true honor to do shows with him.” - Joe Bonamassa
