Still Not Sure Whether To Book Abba's Angels?
With bands as in life, choosing the cheapest option can prove to be a false economy – here’s a comparison between what you get with a Pro level Tribute act established for 20+ years vs less well established Abba Tribute Acts:
Less well established Abba Tributes
Overall THE most authentic Abba experience from years of research / watching & re-watching all available archive footage
Less realistic portrayal of Abba, much lower standards overall, less effort made to look & sound like the real thing.
The Abba Tribute of choice by the BBC and SKY TV for interviews about all things Abba – see our media page for video clips
No national level publicity means less kudos to impress your guests and or ticket buyers and you will be less likely to sell out your event
We have many claims to fame from supporting name acts like the Bay City Rollers, Showaddywaddy and Rose Royce to name a few plus have performed all over the UK, Europe and the Middle East and even sung in the Arctic Circle!
As above plus we have noticed some acts claiming to have won awards that are entirely fictional. Worth challenging any claims made by less well know tributes.
One of the closest sounding tributes to Abba from years of emulating every intonation in their voices
Often no Swedish accents, barely any effort made to sound like Abba. Sometimes vocal parts are the wrong way round eg with Frida singing Agnetha’s part!
A well thought through & highly polished show with plenty of stage and audience interaction and fully choreographed dance routines
A band merely performing the songs as opposed to a show. Either no or poor dance routines, not as slick.
Chemistry between band members that comes from years of working together & confidence from 20+ years experience
Some of the less established acts are known to put teams of deps (stand ins) together that have never even met before!
Custom made backing tracks enhanced to make a bespoke & high quality show
Karaoke tracks with poor sound quality from the small file sizes
Live pro level musicians – keyboards & guitarist. Performers who have made music their careers
Some poorer quality acts have musicians who mime to the backing tracks. Often semi pro – combining a day job with performing on a Saturday night
Hand-made replica costumes and multiple costume changes in each show
Cheap e bay fancy dress outfits / not authentic copies of Abba’s outfits. One or two costumes max per gig
Extensive industry contacts with trained understudies so last minute high quality stand ins can be found for any emergencies etc
Less reliability – may cancel shows if one member ill for example as haven’t got the contacts.
State of the art sound and lighting with back up equipment in case of emergencies
Low quality tinny sounding PA systems & either no stage lighting or poor lights. Often no provision for emergencies
Public Liability Insurance for £10m and PAT tested equipment
May not have these leaving you or your venue liable for any accidents / fire caused by equipment fault etc
If you are holding a ticketed event – you are more likely to sell out with an Abba Tribute than any other act, and much more likely to sell out by booking a professional high quality Abba Tribute like Abba’s Angels
If you are holding a private party – you are more likely to please all your guests no matter what age group with an Abba tribute than any other act!
We do hope this has helped to inform your decision making and hope you will consider making a booking soon
