FROM ABBA TO MAMMA MIA TO…

FABBA


In 1976, Abba was dominating the world with their popular music. Then in 1982, they decided to have a break…..but they never reunited.

The musical and movie, ‘Mamma Mia’, revived the popularity of Abba and also introduced a whole new generation to the magic of those wonderful songs.

In 2000, a group of musicians and musical theatre performers decided to take the music & costumes that made Abba famous, add the fun, glitz & glamour of the musical ‘Mamma Mia’ and create a show they call…….FABBA.

FABBA has now become a popular corporate, cruise ship and international act. While the members are dedicated to replicating the Abba sound, they have also added the theatrics and modern style to the songs as seen in the musical/movie “Mamma Mia”.

Every show is tailored to suit each individual event and function from costumes, scripting, and audience participation right through to the actual song list. They can work with a live band or be completely self -contained.

FABBA will take you on a fantastic journey from Eurovision to Mamma Mia and places even the Priscilla bus hasn’t been!!

The members of FABBA truly love what they do and they would like to ‘thank Abba for the music’…… but most of all they would like to thank Abba for never doing that reunion tour!
