Next Show: The Old Courts, Wigan

Mama at The Old Courts WiganMama to perform their 2017 show at The Old Courts in Wigan

It’s time to start promoting the next show and to do just that, we have some videos from our previous show at The Picturedrome in Holmfirth. We had a great time at that one!

So, here’s the date for your diary; Saturday 21st October 2017

If you want tickets for the show, you can buy them from Eventbrite here: www.eventbrite.co.uk

Charity walk with Jules

As you will no doubt be aware (if you attended our Holmfirth show), Jules signed up to do a charity walk in Chester over the weekend just gone. She did a bit of a collection at Holmfirth and the audience very generously donated £110.00 to The Brain Tumour Charity. Jules had this to say:

“Yesterday I took part in the Twilight Walk in Chester in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity in memory of Dale Bellis, who was a very close friend of all involved in Mama and friend of many who came to not only Mama gigs but other Genesis tributes as well. The audience at our Holmfirth gig on Friday very kindly donated £110, which I am very grateful for. As a group, Dale’s family and friends have raised around £2500.00. Thanks to everyone who supported us.”

So there you have it. Good news for our next gig, our charity efforts and now…. more good news with three videos from our recent show. First up is Ripples, which we closed the first half of the show with. There’s a bit of patter about the charity at the beginning too. After that, we have Follow You Follow Me, which seems appropriate, given the charity walk. Finally, we have Home By The Sea (Part 1). We realised this particular song hasn’t been featured much on our website, so we thought we’d post it.

Hope you enjoy the videos! Don’t forget to book your tickets for The Old Courts, Wigan!  🙂

Mama at The Old Courts Wigan

Mama at Holmfirth PicturedromeHi all!

It’s time for another website update to promote our next show at Holmfirth Picturedrome. This is a big show for us, because it’s our first one back after the Summer and it’s a rather spectacular venue!

So, want tickets for Mama on the 29th Sept 2017, at Holmfirth? Then head over to the box office and grab them while they’re still hot.

We’re pulling out all the stops to make this our greatest Genesis party yet! We’ll be performing our “all era” set list and if there was any doubt about it being an authentic all era set, be sure to read on and discover how true that really is.

Charity fund raising

As many of you knew our friend and Mama follower Dale Bellis, we thought you might like to know that Julie (our resident lighting programmer, brewer-upper, toast-maker and financial fairy) has signed up to do Chester Twighlight Walk in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity. We asked Julie what exactly was involved and she told us thus: “Well, I think we just walk around Chester a bit and do some shopping?” We’re not sure if she was asking us or telling us, so we did a bit more digging and it turns out that the walk is actually from the racecourse to Chester city centre and all around the walls of the city. Apparently, it’s a 10k walk, which as Mo Farrah would agree, is no small feat.

So, if you’d like to support Julie, head over to her JustGiving page here: www.justgiving.com

We’re sure that she would welcome any donations for this worthy charity, however large or small. View full article »
