Next Mama Show – Thwaites Empire Theatre, Blackburn

Thwaites Empire Theatre Box Office NumberMama, the UK’s all era Genesis Tribute Band set for Blackburn show!

It’s that time of year again where we visit one of the top small theatres in the country to perform our show. If you’ve not been to Thwaites Empire before, you’re missing a trick! This venue is one of our favourites because it boasts great views of the band from every seat and great acoustics, so you can be sure of a night to remember, listening to your favourite Genesis tracks.

Here’s what John W had to say about our recent jaunt over to Yorkshire for Tribfest 2013!

We were very happy to be asked to appear at the 2012 Tribfest in the VIP tent (Marquee if you want to get all technical on us) and we must have made a good impression as a week later we were asked to appear on the main stage at this years event. The festival itself is billed as the largest tribute band festival in Europe and has been going a good number of years now. Most of the top UK tribute bands have appeared there at some time or another with quite a lot (Simple Minds and The Cure tributes leap to mind) from abroad. Tribfest is a three day festival with various stages and tents and has expanded into original bands and a DJ tent if the whole “tribute thing” doesn’t float your boat. 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 ยฃ20.00 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.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

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!
