Mama, the ‘all era’ Genesis tribute band have been busy rehearsing once more!

With the Mama launch gig at Pacific Road Arts Centre, Birkenhead a mere twenty four days away, the guys have been putting the finishing touches to a number of Genesis pieces that I’m sure everyone knows they’re going to be performing in 2012. We’ve also added a few surprises to catch everyone out and these will remain secret until the evening of the gig.

We shot a number of videos at the last rehearsal and here is one we can feature. We hope you enjoy!Β  πŸ™‚

Don’t forget to head over to the Pacific Road box office website and get your tickets! They are now on sale for Β£13.00 and have been selling quite fast!

As always, you can discuss all thing Genesis on the Mama Forum. We’d love to hear from you!

Mama, the ‘all era’ Genesis tribute band held another rehearsal on Sunday 19th February 2012.

Below you will find a video that we shot of Los Endos. This is the first time the band has got to grips with this excellent track from Trick Of The Tail. We hope you enjoy watching!Β  πŸ™‚

Feel free to discuss the video on the Mama Forum. We’d love to know your thoughts!

 

We Can't Dance - Album CoverWe Can’t Dance at Mama HQ either!

We’ve not updated the website for a while, so we thought we’d go hunting on the Mama Forum for some interesting conversation and we came upon We Can’t Dance.

Did you know?

Genesis recorded We Can’t Dance as their 14th and last studio album before Phil Collins left the band. Even though this is the last Collins studio album, it’s that old you could buy it on shiny new CD, double LP and cassette. Remember cassettes? πŸ™‚

Success In The 90s

The album reached No.1 in the UK and it stayed in the charts for a total of 61 weeks. Hits for Genesis taken from this album include; I Can’t Dance, Jesus He Knows Me, No Son Of Mine and Hold On My Heart. The previous album released by Genesis was the internationally successful Invisible Touch.

As you’re probably already aware, Collins spent a lot of the 90s singing about failed relationships, yet Since I Lost You isn’t about a failed marriage or relationship. Anyone know what it was about?

Touring The World Once Again

Genesis toured during the summer of 1992 to support and promote the We Can’t Dance album. They did 55 concerts in total, 15 of which were here in the UK. Most of this tour is documented on The Longs and The Shorts albums. This was the last time Phil Collins was to appear live on stage as the lead singer of Genesis until the reunion tour of 2007.

Not a lot of people know that! Why not join the discussion over on the Mama Forum? We’d love to hear your views about all things Genesis and hear your stories. See you over there!Β  πŸ™‚

Everyone at Mama HQ would like to thank all the fans and followers of Mama for supporting us through putting the band together. A lot of hard work is going on behind the scenes every day to make this the best Genesis tribute show we possibly can.

Here at Mama HQ, everyone is a mad Genesis fan and we’re dying to get to the big launch day with a great show that everyone loves. We’ve still got loads to do. Genesis music is complex musically and technically. Genesis are famed the world over for their shows with amazing lighting and effects. I’m sure you can appreciate it takes a lot of hard work to put something this big together, for a new band with no resources whatsoever.

So, we thought we would share some of the amazing statistics we’ve gathered on our journey so far. Firstly, our Facebook page now has over 370 ‘likes’ which is great considering the band have yet to appear on stage! Since we launched the website back in December 2011, we’ve had 1,849 unique visitors right here. You lot visited the site 3,839 times between you and whilst you were here, you looked at 12,169 pages! Madness! But all the same, we thank you.Β  πŸ™‚

So what next? Well, we’d love to build up our Facebook fan base. If you haven’t already, please, please, please ‘like’ our Facebook page using the LIKE button below. Then when you have a moment, why not pay us a visit? There’s lots of like minded Genesis nuts on our page and you can interact with the band and those that work tirelessly in the background trying to build the show for you.

See you out there! Like it now. No really, scroll down and click LIKE!Β  πŸ™‚
