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.

Experiencing David Brighton's Tribute to David Bowie made for a truly remarkable evening…" says Harry Maslin, the Producer of David Bowie's YOUNG AMERICANS and STATION TO STATION Albums.
Brighton's credits include performing side by side with David Bowie himself in the TV commercials for Vittel Mineral Water and for Reality - Bowie's CD. The career spanning ads, in which Brighton portrays many of Bowie's most legendary personas, have been airing in the United States, Great Britain and throughout Europe.

"David Brighton's charisma keeps the audience mesmerized and his vocals are flawless… His likeness to Bowie is eerie… The crowd actually gasped in amazement as he took the stage... You wondered if it wasn't really Bowie himself… Everyone was leaving their seats and kicking up their platform heels to the sounds of chart-topping hits like Fame, China Girl, Let's Dance and Modern Love… What (Brighton and band) give is nothing short of the opportunity to go back in time…" - The LA Review
