Beaverwood Club Cancelled. Riga Club Added!

Beaverwood Club show cancelled!

Unfortunately, we have had one of our shows cancelled. The Beaverwood Club in Chislehurst, Kent has had to cancel our show on Sunday 7th October 2012 due to a double booking with a private party.

If you have already bought tickets for this show then you need to contact the promoter to get a refund. This show was not organised by Mama so unfortunately we cannot do anything about it. If you were planning on attending this show, might we suggest you check out our show the night before at The Boom Boom Club, just up the road in Sutton? The Boom Boom Club always has a great atmosphere and you’ll not be dissappointed!

We will be working with The Beaverwood to put a new show in the diary for this venue, next year.

Riga Live Music Club

Riga Live Music Club booked!

On the upside, we now have a new show organised for you. This one will be on the same date (Sunday 7th October 2012) at The Riga Live Music Club in Westcliff-on-Sea. So if you’re in the area, please feel free to buy some tickets and come along to see the band. We’d love to have you along for the ride. Tickets for this show are priced at £6.00 advance and £8.00 on the door. You can buy tickets from The Riga Live Music Club website.

106.9 WHCR FM Radio logoMama featured on 106.9 WHCR Radio!

That’s right! Straight after the band came off stage at Tribfest, a rather excitable Andy Fea came bounding over to see us and wanted to do a short interview for the station. Andy is a Genesis fan – no surprises there! He thrust his microphone out and began telling us all about how much he enjoyed seeing the band on stage. We don’t think John was sure what to make of it until introductions were made and the interview got underway.

106.9 WHCR Radio, based in Hull, have kindly allowed us to use the interview on our website. You can listen to it in full here:

So remember, if you’re in Hull then tune into 106.9 WHCR FM and catch Andy Fea. He’ll be sure to tell you if there is anything Genesis related happening in the local area. In fact, why not wait until he’s on-air and then phone the station to tell him that you’re also a Genesis fan! I’m sure he’d love to hear from you.  🙂

Has Twitter gone mad?

In other news, we’ve noticed a serious surge in our followers on Twitter. We’re not exactly sure why these things occur but it’s all good. So if you’re not on Twitter, have a look at our Twitter Feed, join up and enter the party why don’t you?

As always, feel free to give us a shoutout on Facebook using the sharing tools below. Thanks!  🙂

Mama will perform their 2012 show at Moses Gate Farnworth, Saturday 8th September 2012

If you’re a regular at Moses Gate Live Music Venue in Farnworth, then you’ll know what great a great atmosphere this venue provides for the many live bands that perform there. Soon it will be our turn to hit the stage for the first time (though some of the guys in the band have performed many times at this venue in the past).

To celebrate our Moses Gate show, we’ve decided to release a new video that some of the guys in the band would have performed here in the past. It’s time for a Phil Collins number! We hope you enjoy!  🙂

 

Don’t forget to sign up to the Mama Email Newsletter for a chance to win a Google Nexus 7 Android Tablet! We’ll see you all at the show on the 8th!

We’ve just had some cool photos delivered from our top photographer and guitarist, MkCo PhotoDesign (thanks Mark!). Mark will be appearing with the band at Tribfest 2012, which is THIS SATURDAY! Head over to the Tribfest 2012 website for all the details and get your tickets before they sell out. We will be performing on the VIP Marquee Stage on Saturday around 5.00pm. We’re hoping for record crowds this year!

Funny Captions Required!

Once you’ve checked out the Tribfest 2012 website, have a go at our fun game here. All we want is suggestions for a caption that we can attach to this photo of John W performing (one would assume) Mama, the track we named the band after.

So, have a think of funny captions and post them below. We look forward to your suggestions.  🙂

See you at Tribfest 2012!
