Of course this is not the first international or European Abba performance for individual band members, with Richard & Karen (Bjorn & Agnetha) the bands managers, having performed in the early naughties with their first few ABBA bands, touring Holland & Germany. Karen performed a stadium and theatre tour of Brazil in 2011, performed for Richard Branson on the Island of Barbados and has also performed to Russian government officials at The Kremlin Palace, Moscow back in 2004.
Is ABBAfact?: Karen actually made her Abba debut on a tour of Pakistan back in 1999 with a top function band she was performing with at the time!!
Other members of the Bjorn Identity, have also toured Europe, played internationally with various professional theatre companies, tribute shows and are also are members of Ulster Orchestra, their list of credits is endless.
The Bjorn Identity are unrivalled in their dedication and achievement in looking and sounding as close to the real thing as possible. Performing the music of Abba should not be but if often underestimated both from a player-musician & vocalist point of view. There is no greater challenge to be met than trying to emulate the vocal sounds and physical charachters of admired musical icons such as ABBA. Their legacy is long and strong and their fan base can be critical of imposters trying to make a lazy quick buck off their music, of course there are those who just love the music and don’t mind who performs it and thats ok too, but as fans of Abba, the Bjorn Identity and it’s performers strive for perfection and their dedication and work ethic from production to performance has been noted and noticed by fans and event bookers all over Ireland, UK and now overseas.
Is it any wonder with such an experienced group of tribute artistes and musicians that word had spread across the UK and the band were highly recommended, head hunted but above all, and this is key; trusted as the main entertainment for such an important event for their Corporate client in Rhodes. The event manager was so overwhelmed by the band performance on the night… they ran back stage to hug and kiss this top Abba group and have vowed to champion the band to get more exposure across the water! thats would wonderful but the band are grafters with humble beginnings, middle and hopefully will still be as humble and grateful at the end of their amazing journey as a tribute band.
“We would love more opportunity for the band to travel more with their show and have hope that promoters here and in the UK will finally see them as a credible tribute show that is worthy of the larger stage & audience. It’s been a long road to where they are now and thank fully the brilliance of the music of ABBA is still being discovered but audience of all ages thanks to Mamma Mia” expressed Karen Rush, Manager at Musicon Entertainment.
“Yes, it’s been hard to break through a certain market and some larger venues due to visiting companies coming over from England, its hard to shake to ‘Local’ tagline but as long as we have the stamina to keep up with the huge demand for our current venues here in Ireland we will continue to strive to create a high class, authentic tribute show that always goes the extra mile to make your event” adds Richard.
