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 »

Tickets for The Met at Bury

Mama, Genesis Tribute Band. The Met, Bury, 15th November!Mama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band today releases three new videos from Blackburn 2014

It’s time for some more live videos people! But first, we need to tell you about our next two shows.

The first is on Saturday 15th November 2014 at The Met in Bury. This show has been on sale for a while now and already we’ve sold around two thirds of the tickets (actually, that figure is three days old). So, if you’d like to see Mama perform one last time in the North West before we head to Yorkshire for our final show of the year, this is the one to go to. Buy your tickets on The Met website now.

Last show of 2014

We haven’t much covered Yorkshire in the past, largely because it’s hard to find good venues when we are not familiar with the area. However, we think we’ve found one in The Trades, Rotherham. On Saturday 6th December 2014, we will be performing our final 2014 tour show at this venue and that’s it until late January, where we will likely have a different show or at least a hugely revised set list. Want tickets? Head over to The Trades website and purchase them.

Videos come in threes, it would appear?

Continuing our effort to release all the tracks from our recent Blackburn show on video, we’ve decided on tracks four, five and six. First up is Selling England, which leads into Carpet Crawl (so it’s actually two tracks I suppose):
 

 

No Son Of Ours

No Son Of Mine is next up. Again, recorded at Blackburn.
 

 

So it’s FIVE tracks really?

Well, I guess you could say we are actually releasing five tracks today. Bringing us to a close is our version of Many Too Many which leads right into Musical Box. These two tracks always go down very well, we presume because Many Too Many was never performed live by Genesis themselves and Musical Box is, well, it’s Musical Box init?
 

 

Let us send you emails from time to time

As you may know, the show that Mama puts on is quite expensive for us. We have to pay out for venue hire and all our advertising and promotion. Sometimes we also have to pay for hotels for the entire band and crew. A show like our recent road trip to Islington can often cost us way over £1,000.00 even before we’ve sold a single ticket (which is why we find it hard to cover far away places with shows).

Mama at The Met, Bury

We think our show is great quality for the price of the tickets but to make it work, we have to sell as many tickets as possible. This means we need to spread the word as far and as fast as possible, to all Genesis and live music fans. Our email newsletter is one of the only free methods we have for promoting our shows to our audience. The more people we can reach, the more will come to our shows. The more tickets we sell, the more likely it is that we can put the show into places we have not yet visited.
