In 5 years of booking Abba Fever I have had nothing but compliments from satisfied clients. Thanks Abba Fever for all your hard work."

Abba Fever, formed in 1996 by Steve Nelson (keyboards) and Pat Rudge (drums), has now been performing for longer than the real Abba! Steve and Pat met in 1993 as co-musicians in ‘Africa’, a band specialising in ‘live’ Queen stage shows. Playing to packed gigs and with tribute bands starting to appear across the country, they quickly realised the potential market for a ‘live’ Abba tribute band. It was important to both Steve and Pat that the show would be spectacular, full of energy and, most importantly, ‘live’. Following a UK search for Agnetha & Anni-Frid, Abba Fever hit the road. A 5 piece live band with 5 part harmonies the show transports you back to the 70’s through the biggest hits of the world’s favourite band. Live vocals, stunning musicianship, authentic costumes and exciting choreography all contribute to a spectacular show which gets audiences to their feet night after night.
With the music of Abba firmly in the spotlight with the release of Mamma Mia!, there’s never been a better time to bring an Abba tribute to your venue or function. Abba Fever perform throughout the UK and Europe and each show is customised to meet the needs of our clients. Able to play in any venue and our range includes hotels, theatres, leisure centres, racecourses and themed events.
Abba Fever also perform another show called Hairbrush and often put the 2 shows together to create an amazing double bill of party classics. More information on Hairbrush can be found here: Hairbrush
Steve & Pat met playing Queen in a ‘live’ show and it was inevitable that Queen would play a key role in the development of their next tribute band. In 2002, they spotted Steve Littlewood performing as The Great Pretender, one of the best Freddie Mercury tributes they had ever seen and the rest, as they say, is history –HRH featuring The Great Pretender was created. The band plays to sell out gigs – for more information click the logo.
