History

Abbagirls Duo was conceived by our Kim Graham Cross (Frida) in March 1995. The idea was to bring the fantastic sounds and harmonies of Abba to venues that did not have the room for a full band. But such is our success we now perform in every type of venue, over 4000 shows in 40 different Countries & 5 Continents, from large outdoor concerts to large corporate events, hotels, weddings, golf clubs Etc. as well as the local village hall! Benny & Bjorn joined us for band gigs in 1999 giving us the option as a duo or live 4 piece band
