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!

Mama at Warrington Parr Hall & PyramidMama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band presents their next show at Warrington Parr Hall / Pyramid Complex!

It’s summer time. We’re just about recovered from our last show at Thornton Little Theatre. Thanks to everyone who bought tickets and came down to see the band perform. It was very much appreciated. The audience plays a big role in making a show great and Thornton was one of our greatest yet!

Our next show is at Warrington Parr Hall & Pyramid Complex on Saturday 2nd August 2014. If you want tickets, we would suggest buying in advance because our last show at this venue pretty much sold out. We’ve already sold half the tickets and normally we tend to sell the main bulk of tickets in the week running up to the show, which is er, right now! So get on it pronto if you want to come to our Genesis party! Tickets are once again available from our EventBrite box Office priced £15.00 plus a small booking fee.

Scotland tour

Those of you following our recent travels will know that we performed two shows in Scotland over the weekend. The first was at The Ferry on the Friday night. This was the first show we’ve performed at this venue and indeed for a Glasgow audience. The band went down very well we think, with several people commenting after the gig how much they enjoyed it.

The second show was performed the very next night at The Green Hotel in Kinross. We had an even better response to our previous show at this venue and our full light show managed to fit into the venue, which is always a plus!

We had lots of good food, good drink and laughed a lot catching up with some old and new friends, so speciall thanks to everyone who came to see the band on either or both nights. Much appreciated.

Audio recordings from Glasgow and Kinross!

We’ve got some audio clips recorded straight from our mixing desk at both The Ferry and The Green Hotel. You can also download them for free to listen to on your iPod or other device.

Here’s the beginning of the show at Glasgow, presented as it happened. First up, Behind The Lines:

Mama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band will perform their 2013 tour show at TheWinding Wheel, Chesterfield.

That’s right, it’s only two days to the next Mama show at The Winding Wheel in Chesterfield. Saturday 6th July 2013 you could be basking in the awesome music of Genesis so what are you waiting for? Get your tickets now before they all go!

As promised a while back, we’ve been busy working on the audio and video clips we recorded back in March 2013 at our Prog Rock Celebration show at The Rose Club in Hindley. The video clips of StillMarillion, Manc Floyd and Mama are not ready yet, but we do have some great audio to share with you.

The Winding WheelBelow is an audio recording taken straight from our front of house sound desk at the gig. Whilst desk recordings don’t give a good, accurate representation of what the band sounded like on the night, these recordings are pretty good. So, if you’re thinking of buying tickets for Chesterfield on Saturday, this will tell you everything you need to know about how the band sounds. We hope you enjoy the clip and if you’d like more, we have posted a couple of different tracks from the same show on our exclusive content page. Find it here.

PS One of our Twitter followers just booked tickets and hotels for this show and then posted a unique pre-show drinks guide online. Find it here. A bit bonkers I know, but he’s a Genesis fan so we can’t say we disapprove.  🙂
