JOHN BALOGH - Big Time Productions & Entertainment Director for Dundas Cactus Festival
“Andy G and Friends delighted the children and adults with their performances at Dundas Cactus Festival’s 2021 live in-person festival, and 2020 virtual festival. It was so much fun to see families up dancing again, and the delight when they joined in song.
They are professional musicians and a pleasure to work with, and we will do so for many future events.”

ERICA CHARLES - Community Engagement Coordinator
“Andy G. and Friends are fantastic performers, and great advocates for the Burlington community. They played two family shows here in the BPAC Main Lobby as part of our Family Day event (Feb 17, 2020), and everyone was so engaged. They got all of the kids up and moving, marching around the lobby, dancing, singing, playing with puppets, and having a great time. We saw a lot of new faces to BPAC that day, and I think Andy’s enthusiasm secured us some repeat clients! We’re always happy to welcome Andy G and Friends to BPAC.”

LORY MacDONALD - Artfest Ontario Artistic Director and General Manager
"Andy Griffiths' charm, melodic voice and lovely guitar music won over the visitors at the Artfest Toronto art festival at The Distillery Historic District on Labour Day weekend. His vast repertoire of favourite tunes was impressive. We had great feedback from both the crowd and the exhibiting artists. They commented on not only his performance, but specifically his skill and natural ability of interacting with the crowd. Charming is what they said. Especially with the kids, and he added in some of his fun original children's tunes from his new CD."

THE SOUND OF MUSIC FESTIVAL 2016, 2019, 2020, 2021
RIAN MALLOCH - The Sound Of Music Festival Programming Manager
"Andy Griffiths was one of the best artists that our festival worked with in 2016. From booking to performance, he was professional, creative and positive. The Sound of Music Festival has always supported local musicians and we were proud to work with Andy's folk rock project at our Streetfest segment. The crowds loved him and he delivered a show that was better than expected.
We also presented Andy's second project, Kidzent, at our Children's stage, throughout the entire weekend. What I noticed was a show that was engaging, positive and fun. Andy worked hard to ensure every child there had a unique experience. The songs, the laughs and the involvement, made for a fantastic experience. Not only do I recommend Andy for any festival or event, but I won't hesitate to book him again in the future. If you're looking for an artist that is easy to work with and delivers more than you would expect, I highly recommend Andy Griffiths!"
