A talented Doncaster-based Abba tribute act have proved they are bjorn to perform after scooping a prestigious industry award.

Tribute Band Abba Revival were screaming gimme, gimme, gimme when they got their hands on the award for the ‘official UK number one Abba tribute’ act in the The Agents’ Association National UK Tribute Awards 2013.

The Doncaster-based group were saying thank you for the music after beating off stiff competition from 33 other UK-based Abba acts to received the accolade.

John Reilly who performs as Benny in the band said: “We are absolutely thrilled and very proud to receive this award, particularly in view of the fact that Revival are in such a high profile category with such high quality competition.

“Congratulations to everyone in the Revival Team. We would like to thank the ‘Agents Association of Great Britain’ and to all of you for your continued support on our amazing journey.”

The event described as at the industry equivalent of the BRITS.

This is the first time in the history of British Tribute Acts that an award scheme has been established and aimed specifically at the Tribute industry.

It is hoped the event will become an annual thing.

Each act was been judged on criteria such as reality, production and marketing

The band have been performing at weddings, parties, both in the UK and abroad for the past six years.
