ABBA Revival - performing (2)

ABBA tribute band ‘ABBA Revival’ thrilled fans at a packed gig at Nantwich Civic Hall, writes Jonathan White.

They opened and closed their show with ABBA’s breakthrough hit ‘Waterloo’.

Their set was full of other floor-fillers from the supergroup including Mamma Mia, SOS, Super Trouper, The Name Of The Game, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!(A Man After Midnight), Money, Money, Money, and Voulez-Vous.

The band consisted of John as Benny Andersson, Lisa as Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Nina as Agnetha Faltskog and Kenny as Bjorn.

Anni-Frid and Agnetha sang in harmony and had several costume changes, while Benny played an original white Yamaha CP70 piano and Bjorn was a virtuoso on guitar.

Stage props, which included a large flashing ABBA sign, and fantastic lighting added to the atmosphere.

Several audience members dressed up in wigs, flares, catsuits and platform boots.

The hall was bedecked with snowflakes and flashing snowflakes suspended from the ceiling, and a large Christmas tree on the stage added to the venue’s Yuletide ambience.

The evening finished with a disco featuring several party classics.

Tickets were only £10 and represented excellent value for money.

The event was organised by Warble Entertainment in partnership with Nantwich Town Council.

Event manager Jon Mitchell said: “2015 has seen some well attended events run by Warble and the Nantwich Town Council.

“We thank everyone for coming along and supporting these events.

“We look forward to running more in 2016.”
