“Counterfeit Abba performed all the hits you would expect with their own style and anticipated costume changes thrown in. The four piece were energetic and were a magnet to the audience who again, were singing along to all to the Abba hits” – Samantha Tavernor (Events Development Manager, Stockport Council)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your efficient coordination and to the band (Counterfeit Abba) who were absolutely amazing, a pleasure to have over and who blew everybody’s socks off with their talent, personality and likeness to Abba. All the clients said how fantastic they were, in fact the next day they asked about booking them again and having them flown over for Christmas. As international event organisers they come highly recommended and we look forward to having them with us at the next available opportunity” – Emily Brown Managing Director (Iberian Events, Gibraltar)

“Just a message to say a great big thank you to Counterfeit Abba for a fabulous performance on Saturday night at Dudley Sport & Social for our Christmas party at DMBC Repairs Call Centre. Everyone enjoyed and danced the night away. Please pass on my thanks to Dave and the rest of the group. Thanks again!” – Gill Day

“We booked Abba through your agency and we just have to send a resounding “WOW” for such a fabulous afternoon. We are a centre for adults with learning disabilities and many friends were invited along to boogie on down. What a fabulous tribute band Counterfeit Abba were, close your eyes and it could have been them! The vocals, instruments and effects made it such a wonderful experience for all. Everyone was up and dancing all afternoon and the ‘girls’ kindly posed for photographs afterwards. Many thanks for such a memorable time” – Anne Brown (Chadwell Centre Instructor)

“Just a quick message to say ‘thanks’ for a fantastic performance last night. Such vigour and enthusiasm with the ability to connect and involve the audience made it a very enjoyable occasion. We would recommend Counterfeit Abba to anyone. Thanks for meeting with the group of young people and giving them posters. I think Jonathan, the one dancing, is in love!” – Keith Bowen (Leeds)

“Having worked with Counterfeit Abba 16-1-09 I was very impressed with the sound and lighting. True professionalism is the only way I can describe their performance. The lighting was switched to the various moods of the songs and they had 95% of guests dancing. They were so confident and relaxed thoughout their show. I have been in entertainment 40 years and worked with other Abba tribute bands but these are top artistes” – Chris Neave (Norfolk)

“Counterfeit Abba were great, worked with the crowd and had them all singing, dancing, jumping around and generally having a fantastic time. I would recommend them, totally professional, not a moments worry and very nice people” – David Fleming (Gillingham)

“Just to let you know the evening went great and Counterfeit Abba were fantastic, everybody was up dancing and singing all through the show, they were very friendly and professional and at one stage I didn’t think the crowd were going to let them go home. We raised £1,318 towards our local charity and everybody had a fabulous evening, lots of people said they were the best Abba tribute they had seen so that really pleased me, thanks John for all your help and I will be in touch again” – Janet Seymour (Windsor)

“Just have to say a huge big massive thank you to Abba on Saturday night at the County, they were superb and totally made the night and let me sing ‘Waterloo’ but for all the times I’ve sung it I didn’t know some of the words. I didn’t get the chance to thank them so if you could for me that would be great. I’ll book them again at the first opportunity I get to have another party. I hope they enjoyed us to as everyone was dancing from the start, brilliant stuff, thanks again!” – Sharon Wilson (Ashton-In-Makerfield)

“Watched them last night at Queens Theatre Burslem and what a night!, Counterfeit Abba are amazing, me and my friend had a great night must see them again” – Tracey

“I recently booked Counterfeit Abba to perform at a joint 40th birthday for myself and a friend. It was a joint party but I did all the organising as my friend currently lives abroad and was returning especially for the party. All the pressure was on me to find a tribute band for the evening! Well I can honestly say I need not have worried. They were absolutely fab! I have had so many guests even those non-Abba fans who have said how brilliant they were. They really made the evening and I didn’t get to say thank you on the night. Thank you for recommending them and please pass my comments onto them. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone looking for value for money and a fantastic evening” – Caroline Dowman

“I found Counterfeit Abba through Tribute Band Reviews on the internet, so booking a band for a very special occasion without seeing them first was a risk and a worry. I could not have been happier. Both Tribute Band Reviews and the band were very professional, very obliging, quick to respond to queries and an absolute delight to deal with. I will strongly recommend both parties. The band were fantastic and had our village hall rocking. They really did make my 40th birthday complete. Friends told me that they were the best tribute band they had ever seen and my brother who is as big an ABBA fan as me said he thought they were better than Bjorn Again. The band looked and sounded perfect, fabulous costumes and great accents. It was a show to remember. Can you please thank the band once again for letting me get up on stage with my husband and two friends to sing Mamma Mia. I was truly awful as I warned the band that I would be but I enjoyed every second. Thanks to the girls for filling in on the verse that we didn’t know, and the rest!! – I would definitely book them again, if I can think of an excuse. Thank you all once again, you have given me a birthday I will never forget” – Julie Pugh

“Counterfeit Abba performed at our community centre on Saturday 19th Feb, this is just a short note to say that on behalf of everyone who attended, may I just say what a fantastic night we had and that the band were fabulous. We will be in touch soon to sort out another act with yourselves and once again thank you very much” – Mark Richardson

“Thank you so much for arranging Counterfiet Abba tribute band for my 50th birthday last Saturday, they were brill! Please convey my thanks to the band as I didn’t have the chance to say it before they left. It has taken until now to recover from aching feet from all the dancing and losing my voice from all the singing! I’ve had lots of letters from guests saying it was a really wonderful evening. I will never forget my 50th thats for sure! There are some fab photos going around as well. Thank you so much and special thanks to Dave and Co. We will certainly use you again if we ever arrange a similar event” – Jill Vanderwolfe
