The Thingumajigs are a band made up from a musical collective of friends from Salford who play “good time music”. We don’t play moody experimental stuff or virtuoso self-indulgent technical music; instead we play sing-along stuff for you lot, our fans, who we love to bits. The music is a blend of pop, funk, folk, reggae, soul, rock and everything in between. We do what we do because it’s fun for everyone in both the band and the crowd.
