"I’ve been booking bands all over the world for 30 plus years and have worked with Groove Now upwards of 15 of those years. All of my artists are treated like family. Groove Now is a favorite of my artists and a must for anyone looking for a good blues fest to attend in Switzerland/Europe.”  Rick Booth - President, Intrepid Artists International, November 2023

"Consistently booking the cream of the crop of American and international artists, Groove Now is undeniably one of the very best blues festivals in Europe—and indeed, the world. Thank you, Groove Now, for being such true friends and supporters of the Blues. The work you do in the service of international arts and culture is invaluable!"  Rick Estrin - Multiple US Blues Music Award Winner & Band of the Year, November 2023
