Presented by Mitsubishi, Boney M mesmerises Muscat at OAA
Maizie Williams, the original member of the legendary Boney M band, delivered a world-class performance to Muscat with a bevy of hits on February 05 at the Oman Automobile Association and presented my Mitsubishi. Fans were mesmerised by the band’s performance of favourites such as Daddy Cool, Ma Baker, Rasputin, Brown Girl in the Ring, Rivers Of Babylon and a host of other catchy songs on the menu as the band brought back the glamour of the disco era to the Sultanate.
Commenting on the sponsorship of the event, Rajesh Sharma, the National Marketing Manager of GAC, the official distributors of Mitsubishi vehicles in Oman, “The band Boney M was the epitome of the disco era and we are proud to have taken the people of Muscat on an unforgettable nostalgic journey back to the seventies. The likable band has always had a special place to those raised in the disco age.”
The Oman Automobile Association served as a venue for the over 3,000-strong nostalgic audience. Maizie Williams, the member of the iconic band along with an 11-member troupe performed for an audience that counted down the days to the performance anxiously. The event was a massive success and the audience certainly look forward to more iconic performers coming to the country.
Boney M - consisting of Farrell, Maisie Williams, Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett - were one of the most successful bands of the late 1970s famed for their dancing in the disco band. Between 1976 and 1984, Boney M released six studio albums and a handful of compilations. The group charted a multitude of hits across several European charts and four managed to chart in North America.
