BOOK US DIRECT

 

This ABBA Tribute Line-up is available exclusively via this website, thus not available anywhere else or through any music agency.

 

 

In 2018 this ABBA Tribute performed at the Farmer’s Christmas Parade in Aotea Square to 1000s and in 2019 head-lined at “Balloons Over Waikato” to an 80,000+ crowd as well as the Mangawhai Wine & Food Festival.  Each year there are public venues and private performances all over New Zealand.

 

 

The band’s lineup are vocalists Pauline Berry, Gabby West plus Dixon Nacey (guitar and vocals) and Stuart Pearce (keyboards).

 

 

THE ABBA TRIBUTE BAND SOUND

 

Benny & Bjorn have said that each recording is like a Swiss time piece, everything fits together precisely. The vocalists and the producer of this line-up align themselves with this aim.

 

This is a heartfelt, passionate reproduction and tribute to The Music of ABBA, rather than being an impersonation of the ABBA band members. ABBA’s music stands the test of time and is loved across generations, around the world.

 

This band’s producer Stuart Pearce spent 2000 hours in a recording studio creating the tracks for the show. Top session musicians from New Zealand and Australia were hired and recorded. Bringing to life, as authentically as possible, the sound of ABBA.  This included some some exotic instrumentation. Having put the work in on top of this superb musical foundation, the band are well pleased with their tribute to The Music of ABBA.

 

ABBA still sell a million albums each year. There is no chance of slowing down anytime soon. The soundtrack to “Mamma Mia: Here We go Again” was No. 1 around the world in 2018 – deservedly so! The soundtrack music was produced by Benny Anderson.

 

 

ALL LIVE VOCALS

 

All vocals are three part and live.  They are very detailed and the harmonies chosen are those that dominate on the original recordings. There are no pre-recorded vocals to be heard anywhere during this Tribute to ABBA performance.

 

 

THE ABBA TRIBUTE FUN FACTOR

 

Highly interactive, the audience and the band irresistibly take part in celebrating the love of ABBA. The audience often dresses up in their disco glories and glam 70’s gear, and always sings along because everyone knows the words. So much fun! ABBA fans travel sometimes 100’s of kms to attend this ABBA Tribute shows again and again.
