2012 A Year In Review

Christmas? A Birthday? Or both?

It’s Christmas and the band is officially turning one year old! A mere year has gone by and we’ve racked up a steady 16 gigs in 10 counties, selling over 1,800 tickets. We’ve released 17 different videos on our Vimeo Channel and had 144 excellent comments on our website. We’ve picked up 1,300 likes on our Facebook page and our discussion forum has seen people discussing the band and Genesis themselves all year round. On Twitter we’ve had an excellent run, gaining over 1,000 followers from all over the world. In short, 2012 was a great year for the band thanks to you.

2013 beckons for Genesis fans everywhere

If 2012 was the year that the band was put together and built into a full show, 2013 is going to be the year we build our audiences and bring the show to new people. We’ve made significant investments in our sound equipment, our videos, merchandise lines, our promotion and of course put in a lot of work to perfect our set list over 2012, which we will be adding to for 2013. We also intend on building our light show to compliment the bands performance for 2013 and we have several new Genesis pieces in the pipeline to refresh the setlist. So, exciting times ahead!

Genesis Tribute Band Mama to Play Cavern

Saturday 16th March 2013 we’ve put a show in Yardbirds Rock Club. After Tribfest 2012 we had a lot of interest in the Hull and Grimsby area so we felt it only fair to try and find a venue over that way. This will be the first time Mama have performed in this venue so we are hoping for a good turnout. Tickets are available from Yardbirds Rock Club on 07771 520 374. Alternatively, they sell tickets from a number of other places which are detailed on their website; www.yardbirdsrocks.co.uk.

A special thanks must go out to everyone who attended our Playhouse 2 sellout show in Shaw. Thanks everyone for coming down and helping us celebrate the music of Genesis. Here’s some video footage of the band performing Spectral Mornings at this venue and if you haven’t already gone out and bought Steve Hackett’s new album, Genesis Revisited II, why not? It’s a great album and we highly recommend it! Buy it now!

Hope you enjoy the video. Why not let us know what you think of it on our forum?
