Mama at The Maltings, FarnhamMama to perform their 2016 tour show at The Maltings, Farnham. Plus, a lineup change and some new video from our recent show in Solihull!

Howdo fellow Genesis fanatics! We’ve got a lot to get through today, so let’s get straight in there…. First up, our next show!

You can catch the band a little more South than usual on Saturday 12th November 2016 at The Maltings in Farnham. This show has been on sale for quite a while and tickets are now starting to move quicker, so if you’re coming down, get them in advance.

You can buy tickets for the show from The Maltings website.

James calls time on his Mama duties

It’s sad we know, but James has taken the decision to spend more time with his family and working in his new job, so he’s informed us that he would like us to find a new drummer for the band. We’d like to thank James for his incredible commitment to the band, right from the word go (actually, he committed before Mama was even written down on paper in fact). James will continue to perform with the band until his final show in 2017 at The Cavern. We hope many of you will be joining us at this historic venue to say goodbye and wish him well for the future.

Mama to perform two unique shows at The Citadel in St. Helens, this coming weekend!

It’s been a busy few weeks, driving up and down motorways to perform shows in Kinross followed by Newcastle. Time for a local show we say! But, not just one local show. This time, we are bringing both our Genesis set and our hits set featuring the works of Collins, Gabriel, Mike & The Mechanics (and maybe a Hackett number), to St. Helens.

So, if you want tickets for either of these shows, grab them while they’re still on sale (because you can’t grab them when they’re no longer on sale can you?). Don’t wait until Monday. Monday is too late, mostly because the shows are on Friday and Saturday nights!

So, here’s everything you need:

Friday 7th October 2016 – Mama – Genesis set – The Citadel, St. Helens

Saturday 8th October 2016 – Mama – Collins, Gabriel, Mechanical Mike set – The Citadel, St. Helens

And with that little bit of news out there on the information superhighway, we’ve got a couple of videos to share with you. View full article »

Busy, busy, busy…. Bring on Kinross!

Mama at The Green Hotel KinrossMama bass player Dave is dying to tell you about the new Nerve Toy Trio album, so we let him loose with a pen and paper and after he drew some weird musical symbols and bowed down before the spirit of Mr. C Squire a couple of times, this is what he penned….

As you know it can be a busy life if you love music. Take the five members of Mama for instance. We are all up to our top C’s in music at the moment!

I sympathize with Darren, who has spent the last few weeks getting up early before work to practice then going to work, coming home, spending time with his family then when they go to bed, it’s back to the guitar for a couple of hours – all to prepare for a Mama concert. But it paid off, because he was sensational when we played at Thornton recently. View full article »

Mama at Thornton Little TheatreThornton-Cleveleys & Kinross

Today we’ve got a website update written by our bass player, Dave. He stepped up with some thoughts on his time with Mama and our recent news about the changes we are making within the band. But first, a quick reminder about our upcoming shows.

On Saturday 3rd September 2016 the band will be performing their 2016 tour show at Thornton Little Theatre in Thornton-Cleveleys. This show always sells well and we have a great time performing Genesis music for you. If you want tickets to the show, be sure to book them online at our EventBrite booking page (with no booking fees!).

If you’re in Scotland, you’re probably aware that we always make it to The Green Hotel in Kinross every year for what has (for us) become a band social event because it involves two shows back to back, far away from home, in a great hotel, with a great crowd of like minded Genesis fans. Needless to say, we think going to Kinross is great! We probably drink too much. We certainly eat too much and it’s impossible to play too much Genesis for you. What more could we want?

This year we are doing two shows on Friday 16th September and Saturday 17th September. Tickets have been on sale for a while and are selling better than usual. So again, if you’re thinking of coming down to one or both nights (two different shows incidentally) then consider booking in advance by heading over to the Mudell Music website. View full article »
