The Interview



Where do you come from.

I understand that you also was a member of Boneym with Bobby Farrell

Anthea: Yes, That is where I met Maureen. I met Beckie during the formation of The Tribute to Boney M.

How did you begin with Bobby Farrell

Anthea: Well Bobby was looking up a British directory of Artistes and he came across my name. I think he must have found it interesting because our surnames are similar. His is Farrell and mine is Ferrell but I don’t think we are related. I had to go to Holland to see the show. A few weeks later We were performing in a Discotheque in Germany.


What was it like working with Bobby Farrell.

Anthea: Well it was a fantastic experience working with him, a true pop legend. As he was fond of saying we had good times and bad times. His nickname in his country, which was Aruba, was piazza which means a practical joker. Many times he had us crying with laughter with the stories he would tell. I often think of him.


What is it like now performing with The Tribute to Boney M.

Anthea:Well we have a unique interpretation of the songs. We have injected a lot of our personality into the show.


How do you get on in reality

Anthea:We get on really well. We are practically family. Beckie and Maureen were there for me when my Mother died and their support kept me going. We always keep in contact away from work and spend time together.
