Groove Now — The Blues Giants

Atlantis Basel
Fri 21.06. | Sat 22.06.

In 2017, Groove Now put together an all-star troupe called The Blues Giants for the first time, taking its cue from the 1985 "Showdown" project with blues greats Albert Collins, Robert Cray, and Johnny Copeland. The Blues Giants brings together international blues greats of the present day who perform the music of their ancestors and draw on their songs. The 2024 edition of Blues Giants once again features the great singer and entertainer Sugaray Rayford, who was absent two years ago. Also back are Mike Zito, Albert Castiglia, Jimmy Carpenter, and bass legend Jerry Jemmott, as well as the great drummer Jimi Bott.
Due to popular demand, there will be two concerts of The Blues Giants on two consecutive evenings. The last time The Blues Giants performed at Groove Now in 2022, both concerts were recorded. Visitors to this year's Blues Giants performances will have the unique opportunity to buy and have signed the CD of those live recordings, months before the official release. The planned double CD will be released on Zito's label, Gulf Coast Records.
The audience can once again look forward to a double dose of blues and soul, interpreted by the best contemporary blues musicians in the world. Buy your tickets early to this breathtaking show as they are guaranteed to sell out once again.
Tickets are CHF 76.90 and can be purchased through; seats are limited so come early or enjoy grooving to the music in standing room area.
