Background on the show.

“The Mermaids Dance Band” AKA “Joe Cotton & The Mermaids”, are one of NZ’s most in demand musical lineups. Featuring three accomplished, (and some are kinda famous), vocalists: Joe Cotton, Amber Claire and Pauline B. Are supported by the musical genius and much-admired keyboardist-arranger Stu Pearce.

“The Music of ABBA” concept occurred naturally, as the band members, having performed five ABBA tunes included in performances over recent years, appreciate and hugely admire the talent, songs and supreme musicality of ABBA. Additionally “The Mermaids” has received superlative praise for their performance of these tunes - highly favourable comparison to the original Toronto stage show of “Mama Mia”, from Canadian and other international audiences.

The band members always wanted more ABBA in their repertoire - how to squeeze more than five into any evening’s entertainment? - by dedicating a show specifically to the genius of this Swedish juggernaut from the 1970’s and early 80’s. A show is born. What magnificent music - a privilege to perform, with great attention to detail, and genuine passion.

What magnificent music, from the incredible beauty of “Chiquitita”, to rockers like “Ring Ring” and the spirited high energy all-outness of “SOS” and “Waterloo”. With great love, admiration and attention to detail, “Joe Cotton & The Mermaids” perform with passion, a selection of ABBA songs from among more than 30 worldwide mega-hits the band achieved. All bow down to ABBA!

Tunes include: Chiquita, Dancing Queen, Does Your Mother Know, Fernando, Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight), I do, I do, I do, I do, I do, Knowing Me, Knowing You, Mama Mia, Waterloo, SOS, Ring Ring, Rock Me, Super Trouper, Voulez Vous, Take a Chance on Me & Winner Takes All.

The two-hour show is followed by a one hour set of pure party music, classic and Top 40.
