Good Morning, Friends and ABBA Fans,
I have not made it public knowledge until now, but I will no longer be touring with MANIA - The ABBA Tribute Show. I have had some of the best times of my life performing and touring with MANIA - The ABBA Tribute (Formerly ABBA MANIA). But after almost nine years in satin and silk, I felt it was time to put away my disco ball and relinquish my boots to a younger Benny. The tours are getting longer, the years are getting shorter, and time is marching on, making it a little more challenging to rally after a long tour. Also, I have A1A, other musical projects, and personal responsibilities demanding more of my time at home, time which is already close to impossible to find.
I would not trade any of my time with MANIA for the world. I feel enormously blessed and fortunate to have had the opportunity to fill those boots for as long as I did, and I will treasure the memories I made for the rest of my life. The show is still incredible, so plan to attend when they visit your town. Who knows? You may see me in the audience, in white boots, and if you play your cards right, I might even dance with you.
Thank you for the music...
