Mama at The Lion Quays Hotel

Mama Genesis at The Lion Quays Hotel OswestryMama to perform their 2017 tour show at The Lion Quays Hotel & Spa, Oswestry!

Well 2017 got off to a cracking start with two very well attended shows in Chester and Liverpool. We had a fantastic time performing for you at both The Forum Theatre and The Cavern and we are in the process of booking a show back in Chester for 2018. The Cavern has already booked us for 2018 and details are now on our shows page.

Thanks to everyone who made the trip out to see us both in Chester and Liverpool on what turned out to be very cold nights! We do appreciate it very much.

On with this weeks news….

Tim Rothwell drummer with Mama GenesisA New Drummer

We are thrilled to announce that we have found the replacement for James on the drum stool. Step forward Tim Rothwell (ex “SeYes” drummer). Tim really impressed us at auditions and we offered him the role almost at once. Thankfully he said yes and his first show is planned for the first night at New Brighton Floral Hall on Friday 3rd March 2017.

James will retake the drum stool for the “hits” set on Saturday 4th March 2017 however, which will be his final planned show with Mama. Of course it goes without saying that we wish James all the very best for the future. Mama wouldn’t have been the success it is without him. It is highly likely he may decide to join us for some double drum madness in the future….

The Lion Quays Return!

The next show for us is this Saturday (4th February 2017) at The Lion Quays Hotel & Spa complex in Oswestry. We hope you can join us there for what promises to be a fairly unique show. Why? Well, we plan on having a bit of an unplanned set list. Planning the unplanned, you might say. There’ll be chance for the audience to have their say with requests and we may or may not throw in some tracks we haven’t performed for a while. View full article »

100 Shows for Mama!

An evening of Genesis music The Cavern LiverpoolMama chalks ups 100 shows this weekend at The Cavern in Liverpool!

Someone once said, “Time flies when you are having fun,” and for the members of Mama, never a truer word was spoken.

Formed in late 2011, Mama announced their arrival with a website headline, The World is about to be rocked again by the music of Genesis. Rehearsals started in January 2012 and over the past five years the band has worked hard to perform the music of Genesis live in theatres all over the UK.

A first time for everyone

The first show was at the Pacific Road Arts Centre in Birkenhead on Friday 23rd March 2012 and by sheer coincidence the band are back on the Wirral to celebrate their five year anniversary in March 2017. Two performances are lined up at the Floral Hall in New Brighton on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th March. View full article »
