Mama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band is today seeking a new member!
It is with great sadness that Mama wish to announce that our bassist Dave Perry will be leaving the band in September. Since joining the band, Dave’s business has taken off and the demands on his time have become too great for him to continue in his role as bass player. We will all miss him and we would like to thank Dave for all his hard work not only learning and playing the songs, but the hours and hours he spent improving the lights for the band. We have had some great times together and there is no animosity whatsoever in this decision. It is not impossible that you will see him on stage with Mama again after his departure, should we need a dep for a show.
Want to wish Dave well? Leave him a comment below.
