Because of the rise in popularity of both the movie and broadway play Mamma Mia , DANCING DREAM was able to do just that!  Since then, they have been invited to many summer concerts across the country attracting audiences of all age groups. The same year they had formed, they were featured on The Colbert Report with comedian Stephen  Colbert which had placed them on the map for top tribute acts in their country! This opportunity had also helped them land gigs in large venues all across the nation.

Since then, the band has toured Florida with performances in theaters, colleges and popular clubs as well as outdoor concerts and Scandinavian festivals in California, North Dakota, New York and New Jersey. They also perform often in New York casinos (Empire Casino and Resorts World Casino) and famous clubs (BB King’s) in Times Square NYC.  Many concert venues and theaters across the country are featuring the band on a regular basis.

So, what can you expect at a DANCING DREAM tribute to ABBA show? Expect our team of seasoned musicians and talented lead singers (“Agnetha” and “Frida”) to take you on a nostalgic trip back to the glitz and glamour of the 70s with their beautiful harmonies, elaborate costumes and exciting choreography
