Hi folks!

On the back of our most recent show at Huntingdon Hall, Worcester, we were asked to do a radio interview back stage for a local radio station. The station kindly shared the audio with us, so we can present it here on our website. Hope you enjoy listening to it!

 

 

In other news, this weekend (Saturday 8th April 2017) we were asked by Bilton Working Mens Club to come and perform our show at their venue, so we decided that’s exactly what we are going to do. You can get tickets for the show, from the venue.

And finally, we have a survey for you. As you are probably aware, Mama is a group of like minded Genesis fans that want to celebrate the music of Genesis and we do this by putting shows together. We are having such a great time meeting people throughout the UK who are equally as into Genesis as we are, so it’s logical that we should “ask the audience” for their input into what is essentially, a Genesis party.

So this is your chance to have your say. The survey should only take you a couple of minutes, if that. Thanks for your support.

The survey is available here: www.surveymonkey.co.uk

New Mama Trailer / Promo Video

Mama Genesis Tribute Show at The Green Hotel, KinrossMama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band today releases a new promo video, soundcheck recorded track and radio interview. Busy day!

We’ve got a fair bit of news and content in today’s news post!

First up, we’ve been playing around with the video footage we shot a while back at our Bacup show. As you may recall, we shot this show on four HD cameras with the intention of creating a saleable DVD and Blu-ray Disc. We’re not quite there yet with the final product, but we have got a sneak preview which we created to promote our next two shows.

You can also watch this video on YouTube.

Kinross 2015

Speaking of which, you can catch the band in a Mama first on the weekend of the 25th & 26th September 2015. It’s a first because we will be performing two shows back to back. It’s also unique because one of those shows will be dedicated to the hits and other great songs that were produced not just by Genesis, but also by Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett and Mike & The Mechanics.

Rain Down

As if that wasn’t enough news for you, we’re going to throw in a new track you can listen to below. This track was recorded during the sound check at our last show in Thornton. It’ll no doubt feature on the Saturday night in Kinross.

Now you’re thinking, that’s everything right? Wrong. Shortly before our Hull show (North Ferriby), JW was asked for an interview by Andy Fea (a presenter on Beverly FM). If you’ve been following Mama for a long time, you may recall Andy interviewing JW at Tribfest one year (listen to it here). We got hold of a copy of this new interview and of course, you can stream it from our website to listen to it.

Local to Kinross or Scotland?

That’s pretty much it for this news post. If you’re in the Kinross area and you fancy coming down to see the band perform on one night, the other night or both nights, we’d love to see you there. You can get tickets from the Mundell Music website.

If you are NOT in the Kinross area or even in Scotland, might we suggest a weekend away? The Green Hotel is a great place to stay, central for golfers, serves stunning food and has Mama on all weekend to keep everyone entertained. Not to mention, we’ll be staying over ourselves, so you can help us keep the Genesis spirit going through the early hours by joining us in the bar!

So, if you haven’t already signed up for our email newsletter (so we can send you information like you’re reading here) then do so on our Newsletter page. Feel free to leave your comments below, telling us what you thought of the new promo video (it’s a work in progress, so we are looking for cool suggestions). That’s all for now. We hope to see some of you in Kinross.

Beaverwood Club Cancelled. Riga Club Added!

Beaverwood Club show cancelled!

Unfortunately, we have had one of our shows cancelled. The Beaverwood Club in Chislehurst, Kent has had to cancel our show on Sunday 7th October 2012 due to a double booking with a private party.

If you have already bought tickets for this show then you need to contact the promoter to get a refund. This show was not organised by Mama so unfortunately we cannot do anything about it. If you were planning on attending this show, might we suggest you check out our show the night before at The Boom Boom Club, just up the road in Sutton? The Boom Boom Club always has a great atmosphere and you’ll not be dissappointed!

We will be working with The Beaverwood to put a new show in the diary for this venue, next year.

Riga Live Music Club

Riga Live Music Club booked!

On the upside, we now have a new show organised for you. This one will be on the same date (Sunday 7th October 2012) at The Riga Live Music Club in Westcliff-on-Sea. So if you’re in the area, please feel free to buy some tickets and come along to see the band. We’d love to have you along for the ride. Tickets for this show are priced at £6.00 advance and £8.00 on the door. You can buy tickets from The Riga Live Music Club website.

106.9 WHCR FM Radio logoMama featured on 106.9 WHCR Radio!

That’s right! Straight after the band came off stage at Tribfest, a rather excitable Andy Fea came bounding over to see us and wanted to do a short interview for the station. Andy is a Genesis fan – no surprises there! He thrust his microphone out and began telling us all about how much he enjoyed seeing the band on stage. We don’t think John was sure what to make of it until introductions were made and the interview got underway.

106.9 WHCR Radio, based in Hull, have kindly allowed us to use the interview on our website. You can listen to it in full here:

So remember, if you’re in Hull then tune into 106.9 WHCR FM and catch Andy Fea. He’ll be sure to tell you if there is anything Genesis related happening in the local area. In fact, why not wait until he’s on-air and then phone the station to tell him that you’re also a Genesis fan! I’m sure he’d love to hear from you.  🙂

Has Twitter gone mad?

In other news, we’ve noticed a serious surge in our followers on Twitter. We’re not exactly sure why these things occur but it’s all good. So if you’re not on Twitter, have a look at our Twitter Feed, join up and enter the party why don’t you?
