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 »

The Trades, Rotherham – TOMORROW NIGHT!

Buy tickets to see Mama at The Trades, Rotherham. Saturday 6th December 2014!Mama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band will be performing their final show of 2014 at The Trades in Rotherham!

Seems we managed to con JW into writing us a new website update because it’s been so long since we last updated it! Take it away JW!

The final show of 2014 is upon us. Thanks to all who came to The Met in Bury for making that a truly memorable night for the band. This weekend we are at The Trades in Rotherham. Tickets are selling well and the venue have advised us that they do tend to get a lot of people wishing to pay on the door on the night of the show so please get there early if you are thinking of attending. Better still, book your tickets in advance right now! You can book tickets on the WeGotTickets website.

Roll on 2015!

Looking forward to 2015, it looks like a great year for Genesis fans with Mike & The Mechanics touring and now Steve Hackett has announced his 2015 tour. Full details of these tours can be found on the Mike & The Mechanics website along with the Steve Hackett website. For our part, 2014 has been a great year for the band and 2015 looks like being an even better one with return shows booked at The Citadel (St. Helens), The Met (Bury), Theatre On The Steps (Bridgnorth), The Cavern (Liverpool) and many more venues. Also we are spreading our wings with some shows in Essex, Sussex, Scotland and a new Newcastle venture. We have some new Genesis songs in the pipeline which we know you are going to love so keep an eye on the site. A live CD and our long awaited DVD / Blu-ray Disc will be released next year too.

Delving into the video archive, here’s Mama performing Duchess at Thornton Little Theatre, 2014:

New guitarist? Old guitarist?

Some news we can announce is that Mark has decided he loves playing Genesis music so much he is unable to tear himself away from the band so he will be staying with us for 2015. We are thrilled at this news.

We know that the reason you guys enjoy what we do is that you are Genesis fans first and foremost and that always helps when the hours are long and we get home at 4:00am after a show. We are fans playing for fans and the response you all give us, not just by coming to the shows but by the many messages on our Facebook page and support in Genesis forums makes it all worth while. Thanks to you guys for allowing us to continue.

A very Perry thank you!

Last but not least we wanted to say another thank you to our ex-bassist Dave Perry for all that he did for us during his time with the band. Thanks matey!

Happy Christmas and all the very best for 2015 from all of us here at Mama HQ!

Why not tell us what you think of our recordings and videos by posting a comment below or joining the conversation on our Facebook Page? We’d love to hear from you.

MarkCo, guitarist with Mama has been busy!

This recording was previously posted on our exclusive content page but we’ve brought it out onto a public page to make room for some other content that’s coming up for our newsletter subscribers on the exclusives page. MarkCo informed the band he’s been working on some Genesis stuff with his acoustic guitar. We thought we’d share it here. Hope you enjoy it!

People ask us how they can help spread the word about Genesis, Genesis tribute bands and Mama in particular. We have one simple answer for you. Sign up to our email newsletter in the top right hand corner of every page of this website. How does this help us? Well, it massively reduces our costs when it comes to advertising our shows to you, the Genesis fans. This in turn allows us to spend the savings we make on new equipment, new lights and sound gear, better features for our website and above all allows us to branch out to different areas to put shows on. Our show is massively expensive to put into a venue. It needs ten of us to set it up and pull it down when the curtain closes. To bring Genesis to you requires a lot of hard work, time and money so any way we can save money makes the show that bit better. So you know what to do…. sign up to our email newsletter! We won’t spam you. We only ever send you an odd email when we have something exciting to tell you and we certainly won’t sell your details to some random email marketing company. So what’s to lose?  🙂

See you in St. Helens!
