Two decades have passed since the members of Abba could be found anywhere remotely near a stage or recording studio. Despite that, the shimmering Europop of Swedes Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad has maintained an uncanny resilience. Whether it's the wall-of-sound vocal production, synthesizing beats or just the group's eclectic, compositional exuberance, Abba's songs have survived through revitalizing covers, compilations and the hugely successful musical “Mamma Mia!” Among those continuing to pay tribute to the successful quartet is Abba the Music. Performing spot-on renditions of “Dancing Queen” and “S.O.S.,” Abba the Music is scheduled to perform at Innsbrook Pavilion on Wednesday, July 7, at 6 p.m. $13-$30.
