Additionally “The Mermaids” has received superlative praise for their performance of these tunes – highly favourable comparison to the original Toronto stage show of “Mama Mia”, from Canadian and other international audiences.
The band members always wanted more ABBA in their repertoire – how to squeeze more than five into any evening’s entertainment? – by dedicating a show specifically to the genius of this Swedish juggernaut from the 1970’s and early 80’s. A show is born. What magnificent music – a privilege to perform, with great attention to detail, and genuine passion.
What magnificent music, from the incredible beauty of “Chiquitita”, to rockers like “Ring Ring” and the spirited high energy all-outness of “SOS” and “Waterloo”. With great love, admiration and attention to detail, “Joe Cotton & The Mermaids” perform with passion, a selection of ABBA songs from among more than 30 worldwide mega-hits the band achieved. All bow down to ABBA!
Tunes include: Chiquita, Dancing Queen, Does Your Mother Know, Fernando, Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight), I do, I do, I do, I do, I do, Knowing Me, Knowing You, Mama Mia, Waterloo, SOS, Ring Ring, Rock Me, Super Trouper, Voulez Vous, Take a Chance on Me & Winner Takes All.
The two hour show is followed by a one hour set of pure party music, classic and Top 40.

The concept of a ZZ Top Tribute show came about when 3 experienced musos (all mid 50’s) met at the Hamilton Blues Club. In place of only jamming the blues, they reawakened their love for 70’s /80’s rock music by paying tribute to Billy Gibbons and his band ZZ Top.
The driving blues rock inspires the players and the advantage of being able to hide their wrinkles and thinning hair behind wigs,beards and sunglasses is a bonus. The result being a tight- professional unit which does justice to the music and is visually appealing to both the young and the not so young.

Introducing The Johnny Cash Tribute Show "The Man Comes Around"
Grammy nominated Kiwi country singer Peter Caulton presents An acoustic Tribute to the music of Legendary Performer Johnny Cash
The show features songs from Mr Cash´S whole 48 year career. Peter has performed this show over the last 8 years at major events in Europe . There are many songs we all know in the show and some songs that people might not have realised John recorded all sprinkled with a liberal dose of humour
Some of the material Johnny recorded in his later years from his Grammy Award winning American Recordings were never performed live on stage due to his failing health. You will hear some of those songs performed live in this respectful tribute to The Man In Black.
Peter has been a professional entertainer for over 30 years performing in over 20 countries. He featured on some of New Zealand’s earliest country music TV programs. He has performed on shows with Emmy Lou Harris, Jerry Jeff Walker,Don Williams,Heather Miles,Dave Dudle,yKenny Rogers,Sheb Wooley,The Burrito Brothers,George Hamilton the IV and Slim Whitman to name a few. The show features songs from the entire career of John from his early Sun Record years,his hugely successful prison albums,which out sold the Beatles worldwide at the time,his ground breaking television show,his involvement with the "Highwayman" project with Waylon Jennings,Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson and songs from his hugely successful American Recordings up until his passing and beyond. His recording of "AiN`t No Grave Can Hold My Body Down" pretty much sums up Johnny Cash
This is a show for any age group who love songs with substance that touch the heart and soul. A joyous celebration of the music of a show business icon.
