Abbsolute Abba Tribute Testimonials and Reviews
Sat 13 September - Abbsolute band at The Forum North Allerton. "Thank you guys for a great night - We had great feedback even after the first half and it's been one of, if not the best night we have had here so far". The Forum North Allerton.
“Thank you Abbsolute for your brilliant Abba show here in Rushden last Sunday. You covered all the great hits and our audience thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Thank you for being so reliable and professional throughout all the booking process. Fabulous were your voices, costumes, routines, light display and more.....in fact, every attention to detail was made. It was a relief for me that you arrived nice and early and worked so hard on a full set up of the stage. Your professionalism was displayed at all times whilst you were with us and you certainly gave 100%. You could have packed away your equipment and departed mid evening after your set. However, you preferred to wait one and half hours more, till the event was fully over, just to keep things looking professional around the stage area. Many, many thanks girls for doing that. Its pleasing that you are so committed, passionate and serious about your work. We are very much looking forward to you both returning to our hall in September for another superb Abba style performance. As you are so reliable, I am totally confident about your role in this next show”. Kind regards, Seamus Vickers.

We booked Abbsolute Abba Tribute band for our wedding in July 2018 at The Ramada Hotel and what a night it was! Even though the air conditioning wasn't working and it felt like 100 degrees in the venue, Abbsolute played and sang brilliantly and professionally and made my wedding night such a success. Thank you so much, I will be highly recommending you!! J. Wager, July 2018.
Abbsolute played at The Lounge in Boldmere on Saturday and the only poor part of the night was when they had to finish! Just an awesome band, professional and a pleasure to have. Can’t wait for them to come back. A Thompson, Manager, The Lounge, Boldmere, Sept 2018.
