We are recruiting a talented and charismatic keyboard player to play the role of Benny In Abba for the following show:
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.
Approx 2 shows per month (but have have access to deps if you can't commit to every one)
YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN TRANSPORT – PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CAR
You will most likely have had a professional music background, be ok 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 & pack down, easy going and flexible.
We need someone with great on stage charisma who can play the role of a very energetic and permanently smiling Benny. 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 before you will have an advantage but not essential.
