About ABBA Chique

Frida

ABBA Chique are pleased to be celebrating their 10 year anniversary this year.

In May 2009 the band performed their first ever gig in Wingham, near Canterbury, raising money for the local football club.

Since then, the band have gone on to become one of the most popular and sought after ABBA tribute bands in the country, regularly performing sell-out shows across the UK and abroad.

It has been a very exciting and interesting 10 years, that seem to have flown by and the band hope to be rocking audiences for many

more years to come.

The band members

Ainsley - Frida

Ainsley started her career in the music business in 2002 as a solo singer,

but always felt there was something more fun that she could

be doing for the music scene.

Fiive years later, whilst working in a band, she met guitarist, Perry, who suggested they start an ABBA tribute and the two of them worked

tirelessly to replicate ABBA's sound and look, designing and making costumes, and listening to ABBA songs over and over to get that perfect ABBA sound.

In 2009, after months of preperation they advertised for an Agnetha

and after meeting Leanna, ABBA Chique formed from there.

Ainsley adds that personal touch to ABBA Chique by managing the band,  answering enquiries and taking bookings, she also edits the band videos and promotional photos, as well as performing as Frida.
"We believe in providing not only the best entertainment, but by dealing with

our clients directly, they get the best possible service."

Georgie - Agnetha

After graduating with a Musical Theatre Diploma in 2009, Georgie's first

job as lead vocalist/dancer saw her touring Crete for 6 months

with  'Around the world'' show.


Georgie then started work on cruise ships; as part of the show team on the Fred Olson's 'Braemar' and 2 contracts as Dance Captain on the 'Saga Sapphire.'


Georgie has danced for One Direction and Duffy, and been on TV, in EastEnders, Holby city & Silent Witness.


  Georgie knew she wanted to be in an ABBA band and after one look on ABBA Chique's website, her mind was set!  Since taking over from Leanna as

ABBA Chique's full-time Agnetha, she can't wait for her exciting future

with the band!!

 

Perry - Bjorn

After many years of playing the guitar for various bands,

Perry is a true rock God!  
 "He is a fantastic guitarist and a real credit to the show,"

says band leader, Ainsley.

Over the years Perry has worked in various other bands,

including two ABBA tribute bands.
He run his own glam rock bands, country & western band and punk band 

and plays he the 'Bjorn' part perfectly.
He's also a dab hand with a sewing machine and painstakingly

made all of the band's stage costumes himself! 

Perry enjoys writing and recording his own music,  he recently wrote a country song with ABBA Chique's Ainsley which
was played on BBC radio.

Paul - Benny

Paul is a born musician - and enjoys every minute of it!

Over the years he has played in various bands and ensembles, travelling

up and down the country. 

Paul writes and produces his own music - really getting into the spirit

of Benny Andersson! 

 

During the day he teaches piano and keyboard skills in local schools.

His passion for music is also matched for his interest in Tai Chi and

other healthy living practices. 

 

Here you can watch the most recent music video Paul made for a

piano track he recorded:

ABBA tribute reviews
Andy - Benny

The 'Bouncing Benny who never stops smiling.' Andy is a favourite with the crowd when he performs with ABBA Chique and rebookers always ask if he will be on the next gig. Andy has been with ABBA Chique from day one and since his promotion at work he is a busy bee, but still performs with the band a few times a year.
