Why not boogie your way into the New Year?

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

You might not ever get to see British rock singer Rod Stewart live in person.

But hearing a live tribute band belting out iconic hits like Maggie May and Tonight's the Night might be a close runner up.

Event promoter 441 is urging residents to “boogie their way into 2015” with help from three international tribute bands — Rod Stewart, ABBA and the Bee Gees. The family friendly event promises a “high energy evening of disco” on New Year's Eve from 9pm until 2am.

The acts have spent countless hours honing their craft and are considered among the best tribute performers in the world.

It's even common for people to mistake them as the ‘real deal', said producer Garry Lichach.

“Steven Spielberg has even been in contact with us for our Bee Gees lead singer (John Ralphs). They're interested in having him play Barry Gibb in the Bee Gees movie.

“They do each song note for note, sound for sound, exactly like the record.”

People can expect high energy performances from all three of the bands, he added.

“They will see and hear the songs that made each of these acts number one in the world,” Mr Lichach explained. “For instance our Abbamania tribute band is the only Abba production to perform twice for the cast of Mamma Mia.

“In my opinion this is the greatest way to bring in the New Year.”

The live music event will kick off in the Poinciana Ballroom at Fairmont Southampton at 9pm.

The show costs $99 per person or $59 for children under 12. Tickets are available from www.bdatix.bm.
