"Michael Thomas is leading a conga line of kids through a tunnel at the Magic Jungle in Collegeville,Pa. Like the Pied Piper with a guitar instead of flute he snakes the line around the dance floor, bypassing the ball pit and eventually through the audience of parents. When the song ends the kids are giggling and wiggling all over the dance floor." "What makes him extra-special to his young fans is that he writes much of his own material in a rock-n-roll-Saturday morning tv-style that tells a story and you can dance to it.",T.G. Rasmussen, The Township Voice, Chester, Pennsylvannia
