Amazing! Simply amazing! I decided to buy this CD after finding out that my band, Electric Soul Method, would be opening up for them in Lincoln....and I was surprised, to say the least. The Tower-of-Power influence along with a seemingly fusioned Texas/New Orleans soul gave me shivers at times. I recommend it for anyone who likes Funk/R&B AT ALL!


Buy this CD!!!!
I saw this group in Salina KS and can't get enough. Love the music, tight horn section and they are a GREAT performance band. Buy their CD's and go see them live if you can, you won't regret it!


Great music with excellent horns and vocals
Telling everyone in Northeast about MINGO FISHTRAP. The horns,vocals and funky sound OUTSANDING. Can't wait to order the latest album from MINGO!!!


Get up and DANCE!!!
This has to be my most favorite find on this site. From the start to finish of this CD, you're toe-tappin', foot shufflin', and booty movin' all the way through. And if you get the chance to see them live...this band is funkin' great!


I loved seeing the band live in Austin. Just had to get the CD. CD BABY got it to my door within a few days. (I'm in Houston) Perfect!! Even my kids like the music!

Masters of music and entertainment, the music was tight, the tunes were big and moving. This is the kind of band that will swallow you in their talent. The music turns and twists, it curls up inside of you, this is a band you can't ignore.

Had heard about these guys from some Austin friends - never had the opportunity to see them. Took a gamble & ordered both CD's. Wow, can't not have one of the discs in at all times. Brings back memories of great horn sections. And many flavors to boot! I gotta catch some of this live.

Jill in San Antonio

Great CD. Fun, funky music that makes me want to dance. Keep up the good work! Can't wait for Mingo Fishtrap to come back to San Antonio!

Mingo Fishtrap rocks!
Heard Mingo for the 1st time on SBC13...what a great show! Got home and ordered 'From the Private Bag' and we love this CD! A little taste of their live performance on in and will definitely be ordering the newest 'Live from the Granada' CD..Thanks
