World Tour of Scotland In Two Days!

Mama live at The Ferry, GlasgowMama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band would like to invite everyone for a holiday in Scotland!

Okay, it’s probably not a holiday if you already live in sunny Scotland, but it’s a great way to spend the weekend away with friends, soaking up the sights and partying to Genesis in the evenings.

So we have two shows for you. First, it’s The Ferry in Glasgow on Friday 23rd May 2014. The band has never played this venue before, so we are hoping for a great turnout. Our friends StillMarillion have been helping out with promotion and they tell us they’re pretty gutted they can’t come to see us because they’re out doing a show of their own. You can buy tickets for The Ferry from TicketSoup (search for “MAMA – A Tribute to Genesis”) or by calling the box office direct on 01698 360 085.

Mama, live at The Green Hotel, Kinross

The second show we have for you is the very next night, hence this weekend will now be known as “The Mama World Tour Of Scotland In Two Days!” The band played The Green Hotel in Kinross last year and had a great time. We did the show with a massively cut down lighting rig due to a misunderstanding with the venue on the use of smoke and their smoke detectors. This year, we’re planning on putting the whole light show into the venue for maximum Genesis revellery! You can buy tickets for this show from WeGotTickets (looks like there are 12 left at this time) or calling the box office on 01577 863 467.

Last Show KeyboardCam

Were you at our last show at Theatre On The Steps, Bridgnorth? Did you help us carry gear into and out of the venue? If not, why not? We only just recovered! Regardless of whether you assisted with the get in or just came to see the show, here’s some video from our “KeyboardCam” which we attached to the top of one of the keyboards to show our very own JC playing a section from In The Cage Medley. We hope you enjoy it.

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!

Mama, the UKs ‘all era’ Genesis tribute band would like to announce several new shows for 2013.

Saturday 9th February 2013 we will be returning to the venue of our second ever gig at Stoney Stanton Social Club, Stoney Stanton. Those who remember our first trip to this venue will tell you we had a great audience and hence a great gig! It might not be so sunny this time around though!

You can contact the venue for tickets on 01455 272 492 or visit the Stoney Stanton Social Club website.

Friday 1st March 2013 sees Mama performing at the world famous Cavern Club, Liverpool. I’m sure The Cavern needs no introduction, being the spiritual home of The Beatles. This gig should prove to be a rocking night! You can contact The Cavern box office on 0151 236 9091. Their website is www.cavernclub.org.

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?
