Nothing speaks better of PLATINUM's ability to captivate & mesmerize their audience with their live ABBA tribute show than the testimonials of those who've been on the receiving end of a PLATINUM performance, and been so enthralled by the experience of seeing a live ABBA tribute band that they've taken the time to put their feelings into words. The band would like to thank all those who have bothered to do so and look forward to continuing recreating the magic of "ABBA" to the highest possible standard..... and all absolutely LIVE!
"Better than the original."
London Evening Standard
"At first glance I'm thinking 'that's the real ABBA'... but that's you!"
BBC Newsreader, Charlie Stayt, on seeing a clip of PLATINUM performing as he interviewed PLATINUM's 'Benny' live on BBC Breakfast TV
"You is fantastic!"
Derren Brown - TV Illusionist
"These guys are seriously good...you will be blown away; close your eyes and they could just be the real thing; lots of energy and fun and all live!"
Paul Campbell, Hampton Pool
Immaculate vocals and music together with impeccable sound and top class lighting successfully create the atmosphere and capture every aspect of the original ABBA show.
Fabulously costumed to the highest degree with many breathtaking changes, these dynamic artistes offer a glittering superbly presented extravaganza that also portrays a visually amazing tribute to Agnetha, Frida, Bjorn and Benny.
PLATINUM strives for perfection each time they are on stage and are fastidious in their attitude to work. They deliver a fast moving, slick, perfectly crafted rendition of ABBA - exactly what the fans have ordered.
Their show stopping performances make this band a must for all audiences of every age everywhere.
There are many attempts to copy ABBA. Without doubt this magical interpretation is the most authentic ABBA tribute you will ever see or hear!
Be prepared - This is guaranteed to make the party happen!"
Russell Parrott - Racecourse Manager - Leicester Racecourse
"PLATINUM are one of the very best tribute acts currently touring the theatres. I say this with knowledge, because as a theatre manager, I see many different tributes to many different artists. PLATINUM stand out because not only are they as close to the real thing as you could get, but they actually play their own instruments, and very well too.
The whole show, from the set up through to the actual performance pays such attention to detail that one feels that this group are presenting the show especially for you and that your venue is the only one that they really want to play. That is the sign of true professionals.
They will definitely be back...."
Charlie North Lewis - General Manager, Tivoli Theatre
"PLATINUM was amazing. I've never seen a band do such a professional job of bringing the music of Abba to life.
They captured that Abba feeling and left the crowd with no option but to move to the beat of their music.
It's fantastic to see such a talented group of people recapture the essence and buzz of Abba, if you haven't seen them, you should!
PLATINUM are 'the' band if you want to turn your corporate event into something people will remember and talk about for many years to come."
Alan Chapman - Services Director, UK & MEA - Cognos
“….oh my god, what a night! We had the best time ever and you were phenomenal, such a wonderful atmosphere and to see everyone just relax and let their hair down was amazing. Thank you all, I cannot say it enough.”
Emma Guild - 40th Birthday Party
"Thank you so much for just the best evening! You and the band and your crew were absolutely amazing!! Every single person at the party has been raving on about how great you were even down to the Swedish accents!! We were even joking that the village should club together to get you back each year!
Any way, I wanted to pass a big thank you on to all of you!"
Frair Burgess - Birthday Party
"You were magnificent!! Your show was excellent! I’ve had nothing but great feedback – people really enjoyed it!!" Phillip Lee - Diaverum
“I had the great pleasure of seeing PLATINUM last night up close at a private Christmas party at Luton Hoo hotel & spa, may I say I am a big ABBA fan and just love their music and PLATINUM just blew me away, totally fantastic. I've not enjoyed a night like that in ages, incredibly talented. Well done PLATINUM.”
Dave Lewis, Runwood Homes
"The visual and vocal spectacular got off to a soaring start with ‘Lay all your Love on Me’ then ‘Mamma Mia’, by which time the audience were waving their arms in lusty tribute to the song that named the eponymous show and film. The first half drew to its close, with the band’s harder edge in the surprisingly rocky ‘On & On & On’, the taunting ‘So Long’ – “…you won’t have me tonight; alright, alright, alright…” trilled the girls – and the beautifully executed S.O.S. with a Hendrix quality guitar riff to usher in the interval. Perhaps this was a good time to reflect on the visual, vocal and musical spectacular that is PLATINUM with their immaculate costumes, step perfect routines and iconic Abba stances plus, most important of all, they play all of the music themselves. This is not some CD backed, Karaoke Abba tribute but a talented, dedicated band brilliantly reproducing the sound and style of a twentieth century popular music phenomenon. The musicians are all at the top of their game and the two girls epitomise that raunchy ‘girl next door’ allure that added ‘strictly Swedish’ to the lexicon of musical erotica.... An encore of the cheeky ‘Does Your Mother Know?’ and ‘Waterloo’ closed an evening that had flown by in a blur of happy familiarity and toe tapping pleasure. It was all written on the faces of the audience as they left; smiles, smiles, smiles."
John Hancock - Freelance Journalist - St Ives Guildhall
“Oh my word - you made the day!! Thank you so much for a wonderful evening you were amazing - everyone said so!! No one could have been better!!”
Angela & Alan Harper’s Wedding - Mamhead House
"You are amazing! :) Your show is really beautiful and everybody loved it!"
Francesca - 2Night, Italy - McArthurGlen Summer Festival Concerts
"You were absolutely brilliant... and have been talked about a lot ever since the wedding weekend. The 'surprise' factor was a huge success & made the party! You had everyone on the dance floor from the moment the curtains opened! I spent the whole time on the dance floor... not even needing a drink! It was quite simply - memorable. Thank you from all of us."
Sarah & all the Nicholls family - Wedding
“I was in Dorking Halls tonight with my two children. You were completely amazing. Energetic, authentic, spell-binding. Brilliant performances from all - including wonderful, witty Swedish accent banter from Benny on the keyboard.. the evening could not have been better." Dorking Halls
"Just wanted to say many thanks for Saturday night, everyone had an amazing time and PLATINUM are fantastic! You got everyone up and dancing and it was a fantastic sight. Thanks so much."
Claire Foster - PA to CEO Northern Europe & Asia Pacific and COO UK & Ireland, RES Group
"PLATINUM put on a brilliant show for us which made the birthday party. Excellent ABBA hits from the seventies, performed live, for our ageing rocker guests to dance madly to. We were delighted."
Sir Peter Bazalgette
"I can't begin to thank you all enough for such a fantastic day yesterday :) ....those who were there will remember the afternoon for a very long time!
Everyone is raving about what a great day it was. Thanks again to you and your crew for a truly memorable event."
Tony Long - Woodford Wells
"PLATINUM's girls were the spit of Frida and Agnetha."
"From the moment PLATINUM appeared on stage everyone was on the dance floor. PLATINUM are truly amazing. The entire performance was so professionally choreographed. The musical skills of every member of the band are incredible. Everyone who attended has contacted the Charity to say what an exceptional night. Thank you Andy - with such a successful evening many very poorly children will have their wish granted."
Russell Brickett – Wishes 4 Kids
"What can one say. It is as if you are listening to Abba. The music, vocals, costumes all added to the occasion making it a tremendous event - a celebration featuring so many of the hits of Abba. I think your ability to recreate the sounds of Abba is amazing as some of their songs are not easy to sing with the harmonies but you really pull it off - seemingly with consummate ease. I stayed until the bitter end (and would have stayed for another hour if you had given us more) it was that good. Virtually everyone was up dancing and singing along throughout the performance. So professional and perhaps equally as important, you all seemed to be enjoying yourselves - how often do you see pop stars looking miserable and glum? All I can conclude with is "Thank you for the music" and giving it to us!"
Chris Smith - FESPA - Munich
"The first time PLATINUM played for us was at a customer event. Such was the reaction from customers and Cognos employees alike, that we booked them for our staff Christmas Party in 2002. I have received nothing but praise for PLATINUM from our employees – they gave an outstanding performance and really captured the magic of ABBA. They made our evening complete. I have no hesitation in recommending Andy Nye Music Limited to you and, in particular, PLATINUM – a stunning live band that you just have to see!"
Graham Walter – Vice President of UK, Middle East & South Africa, Cognos Ltd
"If I didn’t know better, I’d say I was in the awesome presence of ABBA!"
Penny Dixon – HR Manager – Sybase UK Ltd.
“Thank you all so much for a fantastic evening on Friday – the members had a brilliant time; they haven’t stopped talking about it all weekend. Please thank the entire band from the bottom of my heart for such a successful event and congratulations to you all for being just perfect.”
Melanie Trim – Member & Events Manager, Phyllis Court Club, Henley
“The Festival favourite!!.... World class live concert …. you would be mad to miss them!!”
Ballymena Arts Festival
"I can’t thank you enough for the show and for the atmosphere you have created at the GUC that night, you and the band. It was great having you here with us.
Looking forward to our next event together (hopefully very soon)"
Mohammad El-Ghazaly Harb - Hi Wave Events, Egypt
"Thanks so much for travelling to our north east charity event and giving us a fantastic evening. Our prestigious guests (including local heroes Sir Bobby Robson and Mr Alan Shearer) packed out the dance floor from beginning to end. You all looked and sounded brilliant and your professionalism throughout could not have been faulted. A must for all die-hard Abba fans!"
Deputy Director - St Cuthberts Care’s Annual Corporate Ball 2008
“Pampered Chef Directors salute you guys - you gave us the best Conference event ever! Amazing!”
Pampered Chef Directors
"Thank you for a wonderful gig. You were all storming! Please extend a big, big thank you to the other members of the band.
The response from the punters has been amazing. They all love you!"
Paul Parsons - The Aids Project
"Just a personal note to say thank you so much for your brilliant performance at my stepson's wedding at Towcester Racecourse; all the family and guests are still talking about the day and in particular the evening entertainment and your spectacular show... off to see Mamma Mia next month I only hope it is half as good as you were. Again thank you for helping in making their day one to remember."
John Jenkins - Louise Curran / Tommy Jaszczun Wedding
"Thank you and the band for the superb performance on the night of our wedding. Without exception, everyone there of whatever age thoroughly enjoyed it and had a great time."
Alan Whiteley - Wales
"You certainly set the place on fire last night, everybody but just everybody were on their feet dancing.
The whole town is talking about the great atmosphere, and how much they loved your act, so from me personally, Padsow Rotary, and Padstow, many many thanks.
You were also so easy to work with, which was a blessing for me, and the committee.
Hope to see you all again sometime."
Peter Tamblin – Padstow Rotary Club
“It is fantastic to have such spot-on tribute acts for those who were too young to see the originals. PLATINUM fall into this description perfectly. They delivered the complete package - and two lovely girls fronting, who belted out the songs, along with some sexy dancing.
For those of a certain age, Abba songs are the soundtrack of their childhood and this showed with the fantastic reaction the band received! Not only do the band recreate totally live the sound and look of Abba, their 'Benny' has to be the funniest man alive.
The 'sold old' Keller sang their hearts out to every song and went home very happy indeed - me included. Thank you for the music.
For a fantastic night out - go and see PLATINUM.”
Pete Cole – The Keller
“There are many Abba Tribute Bands but we don’t need to concern ourselves with any of the others because yours was so good. Since we are judgemental when we go dancing or to concerts we are going to burden you with our views:
So we have to tell you that you are "Simply the Best" and we want to “Thank you for the Music”.
You clearly had great fun presenting this – so did we. Thanks."
Tim & Val - Theatre Show
"Thank you all for the wonderful performance you gave at the event in September 2003. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and your enthusiasm and energy got everyone on the dance floor!
The music was great and the costumes fantastic - it was an absolutely "Abba-tastic" experience!"
Dee Silver, Conference Organiser - British Renal Society
"PLATINUM is a superb live act; the atmosphere is electric when they perform those hits like Waterloo, Dancing Queen, Voulez-Vous and Mamma Mia. PLATINUM is not your average tribute act; not only do they look and sound like the fantastic foursome, but they perform completely live, with real instruments and no backing track, just like the real thing!"
Darren Connor - Manager of The Keller
"We all had a brilliant time and the band were excellent! We could have had them on all night and still have been shouting for more! They were very friendly and chatty too. Please thank them for us. We've never had the dance floor so packed!"
Elaine Newell - DAF Trucks
"Ambassadors, fellow diplomats and expatriates alike are all in agreement – PLATINUM was just what the doctor ordered for the British Embassy Ball – A truly fantastic night was had by all! When can you come back?"
Jayne Senior MBE, First Secretary, British Embassy - Beijing
"PLATINUM - Corporate Event of the Century!
As the company director of Academy Design, I just wanted to write and thank the guys who are 'PLATINUM' for the superb night they gave our company this Christmas. Can't remember when I saw so many people singing and dancing in mutual glee alongside and in admiration for a band.
OK, so everyone loves Abba, but having seen a couple of (very mediocre) tribute bands - and even 'Bjorn Again', I can honestly say that 'PLATINUM' were truly fantastic and unrivalled in their crowd-pleasing, stonkingly-good, live performance.
There wasn't a toe that wasn't tapping or a face that wasn't smiling during both their brilliant sets.... everyone can sing-along with all the words and there isn't a song on their set list that doesn't rally-up cheers of delight for yet another tremendous Abba hit.
I can't recommend 'PLATINUM' highly enough: one of the best nights out I've had in a long time, and the feedback from the young, the not so young, the musically critical and the just downright party animal in our company was that this lot are the tops - a sure fire way to give the whole company a tonic that we can't wait for an excuse to repeat!"
Mike Allpress - Director - Academy Design
"A huge thanx for Saturday evening. Everyone is still buzzing from what was a thoroughly enjoyable tribute and party night.
Unfortunately you could not fully appreciate on-stage how you sounded, looked and appeared. It was as close to Eurovision Brighton 1974 as we were ever going to get. Excellent."
Paul King - Events Organiser - Bromley Civic Halls
"Many thanks for your great performance, it was truly spectacular."
Zeljana Udovicic, Adriatic Luxury Hotels Group, Croatia
“What can I say? Thank you so very much for helping my birthday party go so fantastically well. I can honestly say it was the best party I have ever been to and your performance was in no small way responsible. I can't tell you how many people have said how good you were. Even those cynics who said they would never dance to an Abba band were bopping away happily. …… I think it was more to do with your wonderful reproduction of all those Abba classics.
If ever you need any references, and frankly I can't believe you do, then I would be delighted to give you a glowing one. From my first communication, through to setting up for the evening, you were so pleasant and easy to deal with and so professional.”
KH - private party
"…a wonderful evening's entertainment… We couldn't have asked for better… as the night went on and the wine flowed, hundreds of revellers danced their socks off… the atmosphere was fantastic and it was clear from everyone's faces they were having a great time too… everyone was up having a dance… a wonderful, enchanting evening… I will definitely be going along to more concerts in the future."
"May I take this opportunity to thank you all for a superb evening at The Tivoli Wimborne, what a pleasure to hear the Abba sound played live and so faithfully followed, without the usual tribute band recorded sound. As a stage manager having worked with many tribute bands your evening was a breath of fresh air. Please know both crew and audience alike will be pleased to welcome you and the PLATINUM sound back to our theatre in the near future."
Ashley Thorne, Resident Stage Manager - Tivoli Theatre
"We were extremely impressed by your performance of PLATINUM for our evening entertainment at our Away Day. We would like to thank you for your enthusiastic approach to your singing and dancing as well as your fantastic costumes. Thank you, your music was enjoyed by all guests."
Carin King - Head of PR - ClearSprings (Management) Ltd.
"A big thank you for Friday night. The evening was a great success and in particular the performance by PLATINUM which went down extremely well. Also the disco music played was a great mix for our group. The floor never emptied until we were told we had to stop! What a night!"
Edwina Buckner, British Airways
"Better than the original," they said. A bold claim when you are trying to emulate one of the most successful pop acts ever; a band which has sold more records than The Beatles.
Nonetheless, 400 Petersfield residents took them at their word and headed to the Festival Hall on Thursday to check out PLATINUM. ..... and they sound fantastic.
The opening few bars of Take A Chance On Me were enough to encourage the first fans out of their seats and up on to their feet and the tone was set for the rest of the evening.…. The grand old Festival Hall cannot be used to such scenes.... dancing in the aisles.
The authenticity of the sounds was matched by the costumes. Bjorn, Benny, Frida and Agnetha certainly looked striking in their tight white suits...
The string of hits kept the tempo high with every number a sing-alonger..…
....the show proved a real hit, engaging and entertaining the audience in equal measure."
Will Parsons, Petersfield Post - Festival Hall, Petersfield
“I booked PLATINUM to play at a black tie charity evening which I held in aid of Help for Heroes and wow what a night we had! PLATINUM were truly amazing and an inch of space could not be found on the dance floor from the minute they started playing. Two weeks on and my phone has not stopped ringing congratulating me on the professionalism of the evening and how very much they enjoyed the entertainment and the whole ABBA experience that was PLATINUM. Thank you so much for making our evening an outstanding success.”
Janet Honey – Help for Heroes
"Thank you so much for a truly amazing performance on Saturday night. We have been inundated with fantastic comments from all who attended. Can't wait to book you again soon!" Bridget Burnet, Winchester House School
"PLATINUM managed to create a fantastic party atmosphere with their unique blend of humour and high quality renditions of ABBA’s best hits. This is praise indeed when the audience is scattered with thirty something Swedes who were there for real!"
David Peach - Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken
(one of Sweden’s largest banks, and financial backers of the West End hit show Mamma Mia!)
