Top Auckland Dance Band For Clubs, Corporate & Private Events

Pauline Berry – Vocalist and Manager

Pauline is both a vocalist and manager of “ABBA Heaven!” and “Sugar Town”. Her previous line-up, which she also managed, was “The Mermaids”, which disbanded in 2019 after being one of the top covers band in NZ for over a decade, subsequently replaced with “Sugar Town”, which shares all members with “ABBA HEAVEN!” NZ’s own ABBA Tribute Band.


In October 2023 ABBA Heaven won the Castaways Resort Top Group Award at the Variety Artists Club Awards Evening, also known as The Bennys.


Pauline is a career vocalist, performing covers with her own lineups, including 90s Auckland circuit rock band “No Paparazzi”. Prior to that she was a resident nightclub and session singer. She has worked with an array of superb NZ musicians, including current, highly sought after keyboard player Stuart Pearce, who is also producer of the band’s sound. Before that her line-up featured legendary late guitarist Martin Winch.


As a result of delving into and performing many different vocal styles, she developed a love of too many to choose just one, so she happily performs R & B, pop, country, soul, funk, rock, rock n roll, 1950’s style jazz and blues plus European power pop – in the form of ABBA!


In the recording studio Pauline has sung on many artists albums including her own original CD,  a huge number of jingles and still works in the recording studio as a session vocalist.


She is also involved as the USA & UK Pop Dames Show, as a sometime Marilyn Monroe impersonator, both vocally and visually.  This is included in the new show alongside award winning vocalist Barbie Davidson, who performs as Shirley Bassey and Cilla Black. They cover a range of music from this era of female pop music including Lulu, Sandi Shaw and Nancy Sinatra.




Pauline is the client’s point of contact and prompt to respond to any queries related to live music and the event.  She is able to provide a strong overview of a function.  She connects with venues and communicates with clients.
