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!

Get your tickets for our Gimsby show at Yardbirds Rock Club here.

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 »

Valentines Day Free Prize Draw!

Happy Valentines DayMama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band is giving away free tickets!

Hello! It’s Valentines Day everyone! So from all of us here at Mama HQ, we thought we’d wish you all a very nice day and we decided to give away some freebies so that you can treat your loved ones to a romantic evening filled with prog rock music.

No seriously, what’s more romantic that prog? What could possibly be more romantic than the music of Pink Floyd, Marillion and Genesis all in one four and a half hour show?

Okay maybe not. But still, it IS Valentines Day and we ARE going to give out two free pairs of tickets for our Prog Rock Celebration show that’s coming up on Easter Saturday, 30th March 2013. We will be doing a free draw from our mailing list, so if you’re already subscribed, thanks and well done! If not, why not?

Get signed up now on the right hand side of the website. It’s free, we don’t and won’t spam you and it’s dead simple. Just pop your email address in the box along with your first name in the other box and hit ‘register’. Then our website sends you a quick confirmation email and you just open it and click the link within to confirm. We use this method to stop people from signing others up to our email newsletter without their permission. It’s very clever, but if you’re using a Hotmail or Google account, sometimes the confirmation email gets stuck in your spam folder.

So remember, if you didn’t click the link in the email, you’re not on the mailing list and you cannot possibly win two free tickets to the show (worth a whopping £20.00 each I might add!) because you won’t be entered in the free draw.

So that’s almost it from us here at Mama HQ. You can find details of our next show at the historic Cavern Club on The Cavern website and you can find everything you ever needed to know about our Prog Rock Celebration show on the EventBrite website, including details of the hotel deal we’ve worked out for you.

Get signed up, get some tickets for The Cavern and enjoy the remainder of Valentines Day, probably by doing something that’s not related to prog.  🙂

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!
