THE ABBA GIRLS*
It's impossible to overestimate the impact Swedish recording stars ABBA, featuring lead vocalists Agnetha Faltskorg and Frida Lynkstad, have had on pop music. For almost a
decade during the 70s, ABBA, the first recording artists from a non English-speaking country to regularly top the world's record charts, owned the airwaves. ABBA's breakthrough came when their song “Waterloo” won the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest. Soon a string of international hits, including “Dancing Queen”, “Mamma Mia”, “Fernando”, “Voulez-vous” and many others followed. To further underline the immense
popularty of ABBA's music, all written by group members Benny Andersen and Bjorn Ulvaeus, “Mamma Mia” was transformed into an enormously successful stage play and
movie. And on Eurovision's 50th anniversary, “Waterloo” was voted the best song in the contest's history.
Jackie Grainge and Adrienne Marcucci had been featured singers in the busy “ABBA And More” touring band for more than four years, when they decided to create a new version of
their show, for the lounge, cruise and dinner show circuit. They had no way of knowing how audiences would react to it and were a bit nervous. But from day one, the Cambridge,
Ontario based duo's exciting tribute to the Scandinavian recording stars has been a smash hit.
Songs featured in the show include “Waterloo”, Dancing Queen”, “Mamma Mia”, “Knowing Me Knowing You”, “Fernando”, “Chiquitita”, “SOS”, “Winner Takes All” and
many more. And since ABBA's songs are great to dance to, the dance floor is usually packed at their shows, with the gregarious Jackie and Adrianne often joining the dancers.
On Thursday, January 31st
, The ABBA Girls will perform in Mexico for the first time, at
The Luna Lounge, in Bucerias.
