Malford Milligan & The Southern Aces - t,Beest Goes (8 Maart 2019)
Een ontmoeting met Jack Hustinx vorig jaar tijdens het Bonnie Raitt concert in de Rivierenhof in Antwerpen.Het gesprek kwam op de komende tour van Malford Milligan & The Souther Aces in 2019.Het t,Beest mocht daarin naar mijn idee niet ontbreken,Een berichtje naar programmeur Frank was voldoende,die was gelijk overtuigd.en korte tijd later kreeg ik het bericht van Jack dat ze geboekt waren op dit mooie podium.Het gevolg, dit geweldige optreden in een lekker volle zaal.!

Malford Milligan was born in Taylor, Texas, to Frank and Mary Milligan. In 1981, after a period as a sociology student at Texas Tech University, Milligan moved to Austin to begin studies at the University of Texas. Instead, his Monday night blues jams became the beginning of a life in music. His first local band, Stick People, launched his career as a singer.

In 2002 Milligan recorded and released the Sweet Cherry Soul album, backed by a band from The Netherlands that was put together by Milligan's friend and Dutch musician/producer Jack Hustinx. The album contains original material written by Milligan & Hustinx as well as a blend of known and obscure Soul, Rhythm & Blues and Gospel classics. Also two songs written by Milligan's close friend Stephen Bruton were included. This band, The Malford Milligan Band, played three tours in The Netherlands in 2002-2003, as well as a tour in and around Milligan's hometown Austin, Texas, in 2003.

Also in 2017, Malford and Hustinx teamed up again. In May 2018, the two announced a new album they had been collaborating on for the last year, co-writing songs and exchanging ideas for a new Malford Milligan & The Southern Aces album that Hustinx would be producing. Life Will Humble You was released late October 2018 on the Dutch label Royal Family Records  (founded by renowned Dutch singer/songwriter JW Roy). Coinciding tours in both The Netherlands and Texas are also scheduled.
