Start with the deep rooted soulfulness of Austin Texas R&B vocalist Malford Milligan add an equally large portion of international guitar radical Greg Koch and let the flavors simmer and mingle. The resulting concoction is a mix of blues, soulful R&B, and American roots music - the band "Nation Sack." According to the Robert Johnson song "Come On Into My Kitchen," "Nation Sack" is a reference to a hoodoo pouch used back in the day by women to cast a spell over their men (and others). Deeply informed by blues, blues rock, jazz, funk, country and even classical idioms, Nation Sack stretches the boundaries of traditional blues orthodoxy - fans of blues will find them a delight. Front men Greg Koch (Guitar) and Malford Milligan (Vocals) are joined by veterans Tom Good (Bass) and Del Bennett (Drums). The resulting is a gumbo of organic goodness, bringing a new, refreshing voice to an idiom inundated with sameness. Recently interviewed, Nation Sack frontman Greg Koch recounted "Malford Milligan is someone I've always dreamed of working with since I first heard him sing. In addition to being a blues, soul and rock and roll, vocal titan, he commands the stage in a way that can frighten the meek. I knew that if we joined forces, it would be a Page-Plant pairing… more bold talk, but when we take the stage, anyone with any kind of antenna for unearthly musical moments knows they have just tuned into the Mother Load."
