ABBA

Fronted by original front vocalists Tara-Jane Stern and Caron Strydom and introducing Heidi Jansen, Kerry-Lee Jeffrey and keyboard maestro James Smith to the Centrestage fold, the perennial favourite feel-good revival coincides with the long-awaited movie sequel to the smash hit Mama Mia, which opened in cinemas recently.

The cast of ten includes Centrestage stalwarts Andre Strydom on bass and Wayne Kallis and acoustic, both also members of the very first 2006 lineup, along with Fenlin Pietie on keys, Sandy Robbie on lead guitar and Kevin Mattheus on drums.

The evergreen Abba songbook includes beloved hits such as Waterloo, Super Trooper, Chiquitita, Fernando, SOS, Voulez Vouz, Gimme Gimme, Knowing Me Knowing You, Money Money and Dancing Queen.

Brand new additions made popular again by the movies comprise of As Good As New, If it Wasn’t for the Nights, Our Last Summer and Hole in Your Soul, whilst Does Your Mother Know, Take A Chance on Me and Rock Me make for popular lighter moments, contrasted by the big Abba ballads such as The Winner Takes It All, Thank You for the Music, I Have A Dream and Andante Andante.

A distinguishing signature of the Centrestage approach is the authenticity with which the complex studio vocal arrangements of the Abba sound are recreated live on stage. This, along with impressive musical virtuosity of the band, the rollicking entertainment factor and the inter-generational appeal of the Abba music is what has made this show the most appealing of all.

Next up at the Boardwalk Amphitheatre 27/28 Dec 2018 & 03 Jan at The Links St Francis Bay
