Just over three weeks to go to our much anticipated return to the London area with our show at O2 Academy in Islington. The show is on Saturday 21st June 2014 and you can get tickets from the O2 Academy website. Tickets are priced at £18.00. They’ve been on sale now for quite a while and a fair few have gone, so if you’re thinking of coming down, buy your tickets now.

Scotland tour

Those of you following our recent travels will know that we performed two shows in Scotland over the weekend. The first was at The Ferry on the Friday night. This was the first show we’ve performed at this venue and indeed for a Glasgow audience. The band went down very well we think, with several people commenting after the gig how much they enjoyed it.

The second show was performed the very next night at The Green Hotel in Kinross. We had an even better response to our previous show at this venue and our full light show managed to fit into the venue, which is always a plus!

We had lots of good food, good drink and laughed a lot catching up with some old and new friends, so speciall thanks to everyone who came to see the band on either or both nights. Much appreciated.

Audio recordings from Glasgow and Kinross!

We’ve got some audio clips recorded straight from our mixing desk at both The Ferry and The Green Hotel. You can also download them for free to listen to on your iPod or other device.

World Tour of Scotland In Two Days!

Mama live at The Ferry, GlasgowMama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band would like to invite everyone for a holiday in Scotland!

Okay, it’s probably not a holiday if you already live in sunny Scotland, but it’s a great way to spend the weekend away with friends, soaking up the sights and partying to Genesis in the evenings.

So we have two shows for you. First, it’s The Ferry in Glasgow on Friday 23rd May 2014. The band has never played this venue before, so we are hoping for a great turnout. Our friends StillMarillion have been helping out with promotion and they tell us they’re pretty gutted they can’t come to see us because they’re out doing a show of their own. You can buy tickets for The Ferry from TicketSoup (search for “MAMA – A Tribute to Genesis”) or by calling the box office direct on 01698 360 085.

Mama, live at The Green Hotel, Kinross

The second show we have for you is the very next night, hence this weekend will now be known as “The Mama World Tour Of Scotland In Two Days!” The band played The Green Hotel in Kinross last year and had a great time. We did the show with a massively cut down lighting rig due to a misunderstanding with the venue on the use of smoke and their smoke detectors. This year, we’re planning on putting the whole light show into the venue for maximum Genesis revellery! You can buy tickets for this show from WeGotTickets (looks like there are 12 left at this time) or calling the box office on 01577 863 467.

Last Show KeyboardCam

Were you at our last show at Theatre On The Steps, Bridgnorth? Did you help us carry gear into and out of the venue? If not, why not? We only just recovered! Regardless of whether you assisted with the get in or just came to see the show, here’s some video from our “KeyboardCam” which we attached to the top of one of the keyboards to show our very own JC playing a section from In The Cage Medley. We hope you enjoy it.
