ABBA-Mania

"ABBA-Mania" recreates the music and feelings of one of the greatest pop music groups of all time! The fabulous vocal match and authentic look of Anni-Frid Lyngstad (Monica Tietz), Benny Andersson (Ewan Fernie), Björn Ulvaeus (Nick Pattison), and Agnetha Fältskog (Michelle Truman) allow you to re-live thos great memories of the 70's and 80's. Recapture the sounds of ABBA and take a trip down memory lane with some of their biggest hits: "Mamma Mia", "Dancing Queen", "Waterloo" and "Fernando"!

The four ABBA characters are backed by a live band (guitar, bass & drums), 2 backup singers, 1 electric violinist and full symphony orchestra! Complete with authentic costumes and concert lighting, this 10-piece show performs 20 or more of ABBA's hits.

The symphony show can also double-bill with the Bee Gees tribute "Night Fever" or other featured tribute guests such as Tina Turner and/or Rod Stewart "Forever Young" (see poster below), Neil Diamond "Solitary Man", etc.

"We saw Abbamania last August (2009) at the Minnesota State Fair and their performance was the best live performance I have ever seen."
S. Arnold - Minnesota, USA

"My husband and I and 8 other friends watched your performance last night (Aug 27 '07) at Stage West, Mississauga, ON. It was the first time we had ever been there, and won’t be the last. You were unbelievably great! I don’t know when we enjoyed anything so wonderful as you people and your whole band. Thanks for making our evening so wonderful, we were celebrating our 45th anniversary, best evening ever! Thanks again."
Linda and Jim – Brantford, ON

"We saw your show (Tina Turner/Rod Stewart/Tom Jones/ABBA-Mania) in Markham on Friday, Oct 17th ('08) and were absolutely floored! It was FANTASTIC! We were all overwhelmed! Thank you."
Dave & Laura - Mississauga, ON

"I just bought my tickets for Tuesday's show in Glace Bay (Nova Scotia - Savoy Theatre). Second row, center, how cool is that. I'm hoping to get to meet you guys this time. It's only the 6th time seeing Abbamania! I know I'll enjoy the show. Till then."
Michelle - Glace Bay, NS

"We have been to about 5 of their concerts since we first discovered them at the Orillia Opera House a few years back. We have since seen them at the King's Wharf Theatre in Penetanguishene (twice), Newmarket Theatres and Roy Thomson Hall (Toronto). They are awesome!!!! When can we see them again??? Also, at the concert in Orillia, there was a Bee Gees Tribute - equally awesome!!!"

"I saw them exactally a year ago in Iowa. I went one night with my family and they were so good I went the next night by myself. I talked to them for a while. They were very nice also."

"Just saw this band tonight on Long Island (NY, USA). They are Fantastic! The Best by far! You must check them out. I have been listening to all the other tribute bands, and the singing is far superior to all the others! BRAVO!
P.S. I think there is another Abbamania out there but not as good."
