    Even if you are among the two-left-feet crowd, you'll enjoy the energy and superb musicianship of this album"
    Sing Out! (USA)

    "The playing is spirited, with plenty of bounce and energy; best enjoyed, I find, when played loud. The percussion does its job well, driving the tunes along, without being an end in itself. Once the tunes are established, then there's time for the occasional bit of cross rhythm for that injection of energy. ...ThingumaJig fare well on several criteria. ....the album is fun to listen to, the music gives a good impression of the group's strength as a dance band, and there's lots of useful information to get beginners started on dancing."

    The band plays traditional tunes at danceable lengths and speeds, so the CD is perfect for dance-clubs and dance-parties. These acoustic six don’t overdub yet mix perfectly and play it seems to me, with smiles on their faces. Nip down to Hobs and get one”

    "... a few of the tracks did have me hopping around in the front room ...Altogether a good idea by a good band of musicians.."
    Shreds & Patches

    all played to a high standard - exciting and easy listening to non dancers. Be warned - the cover caption says the CD may cause involuntary physical movement. It is very difficult to keep still whilst listening, very

    The beauty of this album is that it's multi-purpose: for listening at home, playing along, having a party and getting familiar with the dancing, especially if you plan to hire the band. You know these tunes even if you don't recognise the titles."
    Tradition magazine

    In typical Hobgoblin style, it is a practical DIY tool for making 'dance'.
    A booklet is available to go with the CD that explains snippets of Irish, English, Scottish and other dances, and whereas it makes no pretensions at being ‘authoritative' in this field, it is directed to 'informal social gatherings, school events, parties, weddings' and so on, to make up their own ceilidhs. Nice idea! The music is excellent...This is great stuff
