The Garage – Swansea

The Garage Live Music Venue, SwanseaMama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band to play The Garage Live Music Venue in Swansea!

That’s right everyone. It’s time to get your tickets to see the next Mama show which is this Saturday coming, in Swansea. It’ll be our first time at The Garage Live Music Venue and we are really looking forward to it. Already we have had many emails from people in the area to tell us they’re really looking forward to the show, so if you want to ensure entry, buy your tickets up front from the venue priced £13.00. They’re £15.00 on the door and we reckon the £2.00 saving is valuable beer money!

Those of you who are subscribed to our email newsletter (subscribe right now on the right hand side!) will no doubt have heard about our two surveys for 2013. The idea is to collect some quality information about what you, the Genesis fans want from us, the Genesis tribute band. The survey came in two parts. First there was the general Mama Survey 2013 for those that could spare us a couple of minutes and then for the uber mad Genesis geeks that can’t get enough, there was the Big Song Poll Survey which is likely to take you several days to complete! Brave.

Our Survey Says?

Survey results? Well, they’re not quite ready to publish yet because we need to get some more input from other areas. But what we can tell you is early results indicate Los Endos is by far the most desired track at a Mama show! So we dug around in our digital archives and pulled out a relatively recent recording for you. We hope you enjoy it. Here’s Los Endos performed live at The Winding Wheel in Chesterfield, a couple of weeks ago:

If you’d like to have your say, we’d love to see you have a go at our Mama Survey 2013. We promise, it’ll only take three minutes tops! As previously mentioned, you can also have a go at the Big Song Poll Survey anytime you like, to register which Genesis tracks are your favourites. We’ll be consulting this survey when we add more tracks to our growing set list choices, so there’s all to play for (why do I feel like I’m hosting an 80’s TV game show?)!

So, what do you do now? If you’re in the Swansea area and you love Genesis (which you should if you are reading this) then book your tickets for The Garage now. Box office: 01792 475 147 or online here!

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 »

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?

As always, feel free to give us a shoutout on Facebook using the sharing tools below. Thanks!  🙂
