“The Mermaids Dance Band” AKA “The Mermaids” are one of New Zealand’s most in demand musical lineups. Featuring three accomplished vocalists: Joe Cotton, Amber Claire and Pauline Berry, they are supported by musical whizz and much admired keyboardist/arranger Stu Pearce.

Visit our main website here:

“The Music of ABBA” concept occurred naturally, encouraged by superlative praise for their performance of the five ABBA tunes the band had already been performing in recent years (highly favourable comparisons to the original Toronto stage show of “Mama Mia”, from Canadian and other international clients), the band had also come to appreciate and hugely admire ABBA and were excited at the thought of doing many more personal favourites from the ABBA catalogue.

So with much love, admiration, appreciation and passionate attention to detail, “The Mermaids” now perform 27 of ABBA most famous and beloved songs. All hail the genius of ABBA!

The band’s sound files below were recorded to capture the band’s live sound. The vocals were sung together as live all at once, along with the keyboardist playing, down to tape, with no post production pitch adjustment. The video sound is as recorded at the same time as the video itself i.e. live sound.
