Abba's Angels - Abba / 70's Disco Tribute ( some shows are abba + 70s / abba + party set)
We are based around the New Forest / Wilts / Hants border and shows are mainly SW, S SE within 1- 2 hrs of Salisbury with the odd exception
YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN TRANSPORT – PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CAR
You are ideally 25-55, you will ideally have had a professional music background, ideally be a good enough vocalist to sing songs like “Does Your Mother Know”, “You To Me Are Everything” etc and be good at backing vocals / harmonising also, be reliable and organised with your diary so that once you have committed to a show you stick to it, punctual, a good team worker willing to muck in with set up, easy going and flexible.
We need someone with great on stage charisma, who is confident talking to the audience sometimes ( in a Swedish accent) and can play the role of very upbeat and energetic Bjorn. If your face doesn’t hurt from smiling when you come off stage you’ve not been smiling hard enough;-)
If you have performed with another Abba Tribute you will have an advantage but not essential.
