Four Days To The Big Show Of 2013!

Mama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band would like to share a couple of videos from our friends, StillMarillion and Manc Floyd.

Now we have a great excuse to feature two stunningly good bands on our website! Below you will find a couple of videos from StillMarillion and Manc Floyd. Both of these bands will be joining Mama for the ultimate Prog Rock Celebration, on Easter Saturday. That’s a mere four days away!

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!
