“Wow wow wow, notorious J.I.G came to Oswestry and they were simply amazing, my feet are killing me this morning, from dancing all night!!!” 

Gilly S

“An energetic and purely original approach to ceilidh dancing, clearly loved by all ages. Went down well at Warwick, I would have them back for sure!” 

Dan B - Warwick Folk Festival


notorious J.I.G is the brainchild of electronica aficionados, trad tune devotees and ceilidh dance cognoscenti. Mixing the hottest breaks from old school and modern hip hop, disco and funk with blistering traditional tunes on fiddle and accordion.


A ceilidh is the perfect way to bring new family and friends together. But whilst we love folk music, we know that it might not be everyone’s cup of tea.
With notorious J.I.G., you get the best of both worlds; guests can join in the dance, freestyle or simply chill out and listen.
Better still, absolutely no experience is necessary; MC Dan will walk guests through and “call” the dances, giving everyone the confidence to get up and bust some moves!


Equally at home amongst ceilidh aficionados, family first-timers, festival fashionistas and full on beat seekers. notorious J.I.G. bring a slick, smooth, quirky and quality experience to your event.


Whatever your cause to celebrate, make your party one your guests will remember.

Forget the awkwardness of an empty dance floor, notorious J.I.G. appeals across generations, cultures and abilities to make sure that everyone has a great time.


Perfect for the PTA, superlative for the scouts, cracking for a corporate do, just right for the Rotary Club and wondrous for work's Christmas Party.
Drop us a line to see how we can make your event go with a bang.
