The Diamond Venue - MansfieldMama to perform at The Diamond in Sutton-in-Ashfield on the 10th June 2012

Mama, the UKs ‘all era’ Genesis tribute band will be performing their 2012 show at The Diamond, Nottinghams premiere tribute band venue, on the 10th June 2012.

The Diamond is renowned for its great atmosphere and hosts the best tribute bands the UK has to offer. Constructed in 1884 during Queen Victoria’s reign, The Diamond has played its own unique part in the social scene of North Nottinghamshire ever since.

In the post WWII era the place buzzed as a dance hall and casino. In the Swinging 60’s and early 70’s the venue attracted big name bands and solo artists, such as The Troggs, Procol Harem and Lulu. In the late 70’s disco fever hit The Diamond and throughout the 80’s and 90’s DJ’s played the latest tunes to a lively crowd.

The Millennium saw a return to The Diamonds’ roots of live music and bands of a high standard, but with a difference! The Diamond specialises in Tribute Bands almost every Saturday night throughout the year.

In their own words, this venue is ‘for grown-ups who remember what fun used to be’ which sounds like the perfect venue to extend the 2012 Mama tour! We hope to see you there!  🙂

Mama Rehearsal – 8th January 2012

Yesterday, the guys in the band put together a rehearsal. This was to be the first time that all the band members played together so it was going to be interesting. As a professional videographer, I thought it would be cool to share some video footage of the session but before I do, I’d like to add an official disclaimer….

These are not professionally shot and edited videos! I simply threw something together in a single take, using two cameras. I didn’t even put them on tripods or white balance them! Neither did I spend more than ten minutes editing them both.

So, now you know that you’re not supposed to be judging my professional video skills, here is the first of two videos. You will need to visit our Facebook page to find out the password to access it. It’s posted on our Facebook wall. Whilst you’re there, please ‘like’ our Facebook page. We hope you enjoy the video! 🙂

In anticipation of a few questions:

  1. Yes that is me running around on the stage with a video camera.
  2. No I did not know my bald patch was that big.
  3. Cameras were Sony Z5E and Sony FX1 models, edited on Premiere Pro CS5 with Magic Bullet Looks 2.0. Recorded in 1080i HDV with mono audio.
