Mama – The JW MegaMix!

Mama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band release new promo video online!

Thanks for visiting our website. We thought we would update you on the latest news after our Easter break. Happy Easter!

Today we’ve got an all new video for you. This is Mama, performing Mama, at The Hub in Bacup. It will feature in our new live DVD / Blu-ray Disc release which we are still working on (we are about half way through the video and audio work). The audio was recently mixed by our very own John W and we hope you enjoy it.

Sheffield show beckons!

Don’t forget, if you’re in the Sheffield area and want to catch the band live, we will be performing our show at the O2 Academy, Sheffield, on the 26th April 2014. That’s six days from now! You can purchase tickets for the show on the O2 Academy website.

The News, In A Flash!

Manc Floyd - Bury Met 2013Newsflash! Mama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute is about to issue some er, some news!

Evening people! It’s been a while since we updated our website with the latest news. We’ve been collecting little bits from here, there and everywhere to keep things informative and stimulating. I hope you agree. 🙂

Grimsby Local News Story

First up, we seem to have got a mention in the Grimsby Telegraph detailing our upcoming show on Saturday 16th March – that’s two days away! We’re not sure when the article is being published in the physical paper. In fact, it may already have been published. Let us know if you see it. You can also read the article online here.

The article features a fan video recorded at The Box in Crewe. Unlike a lot of fan videos, it’s rather good quality. Do check it out – anyone for the first 8 minutes of In The Cage Medley? Thanks Faye!

Radio Reactions

Also from the Grimsby area, or more precisely, the Hull area, we got a quick mention from Andy Fea on WHCR last Saturday. If you tune in this Saturday, we believe we might get another mention. What’s more, if you email, text, tweet and Facebook the radio station in an all out assault, you might be able to persuade Andy to play a couple of your favourite Genesis tracks while we are on the road. Go on, I dare you! Double dare you! View full article »

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!

You’ll get three bands each doing a one and a half hour set of the best prog rock pieces the world has seen, totalling four and a half hours of live music entertainment! What more could anyone ask for?

Tickets are now on sale for this event on the EventBrite website. They are £20.00 for a standard ticket or £30.00 for a VIP ticket. The VIP tickets will include a limited edition event T-shirt and other surprises on the night. Standard tickets will also be available on the door priced £27.00.

Closer to the show date, we will be sorting out an exclusive offer with a local hotel to enable everyone to get quality board and lodgings. This means you can get a train into Wigan from anywhere in the UK, stop over and generally have a blast hanging out with a great crowd! More info on that when we have it.
