About Us

 
 

ABBANOW were formed in 2000 and are now in their 10th year entertaining audiences around the UK and the world.

Their musical expertise and attention to detail has ensured that ABBANOW is one of the UK’s leading Tribute bands.

ABBANOW produced and recorded their backing tracks in a recording studio, using a studer (tape to tape reel) and recorded in exactly the same way as the original ABBA.


The total cost to record these tracks was approximately £8,000 pounds so you can see just how determined they were to get the right authentic sound!


ABBANOW are the ONLY tribute band to play live using a 24 track hard disc recorder instead of a mini disc player. The sound is much clearer with 24 channels allowing the sound engineer to get a better quality of sound. With a mini disc it only has two channels, left and right and music recorded onto it will sound compressed.


24 track hard disc recorders are normally used in recording studios but ABBANOW made the decision to take it on the road.  This was to re-create that special sound staying true to ABBA.

Michele (Agnetha) and Angie (Frida) have paid particular attention to the vocals ensuring that they are sung in the same tone and harmony as Agnetha and Frida’s.


With both of them studying ballet when they were younger, their choreography and stage performance is very professional and they even have convincing Swedish accents!


All ABBANOW’s costumes are exact replicas of the original costumes originally made by Owe Sandsrom with painstaking attention to detail by their costume designer Anita Rose.

For many years ABBANOW have been entertaining audiences at many large outdoor events, music festivals, theatres, racecourses and hotels.
