    Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How is the Abbasession Duo and Trio able to sound authentic without a band?

Q.Why doesn’t the Abbasesion Band use a live drummer and bass player? 

A: Abbasession use high quality pre recorded drums and bass which enables us  to have the same dynamics and presence of a full band without the added costs of extra musicians.

Q. I really love Benny and Bjorn, how does the Abbasession Duo show  work without them?

A. Most people love to hear the ladies sing but for those who do miss the guys, Abbasession offers a 4 piece band with Benny and Bjorn.  Please specify at the time of booking if you would like 2, 3 or 4 piece as sometimes we are unable to arrange for the guys to join us closer to the date of your event.

 Q. Do I need to have a big stage setup for Abbasession?

A.  Abbasession can adapt to almost any situation and the stage can be big or small and the sound will still be fantastic. Sometimes we find we are without a stage and become a floor show and that is fine with us as the girls never stay the whole time on stage,they like to dance and sing with the crowd and turn it into an interactive show.  

Q.  How long does Abbasession play for?

A. Abbasession generally plays a 1 x 45 minute set,  a 1 hour set or  2 x 40  minute sets . Abbasession can also offer 2 x 40 minute sets + 1 x 40 minute covers set to extend your evening  entertainment.  For those that like the dynamic sets but would like more costume changes, we offer the 2 x 30 minute sets. We also have the option of of a dual tribute show with the Indian from the Village People http://abbasession.com/abbasession-meets-the-village-people/

Q. Which is better the Abbasession Duo, Trio or 4 piece band?

A. All options are fantastic and every member is a professional and of course you still get the full sound system but it ultimately depends on your needs for your event, which may include budget,space and time of the event.
