Tickets for The Met at Bury

Mama, Genesis Tribute Band. The Met, Bury, 15th November!Mama, the UK’s all era Genesis tribute band today releases three new videos from Blackburn 2014

It’s time for some more live videos people! But first, we need to tell you about our next two shows.

The first is on Saturday 15th November 2014 at The Met in Bury. This show has been on sale for a while now and already we’ve sold around two thirds of the tickets (actually, that figure is three days old). So, if you’d like to see Mama perform one last time in the North West before we head to Yorkshire for our final show of the year, this is the one to go to. Buy your tickets on The Met website now.

Last show of 2014

We haven’t much covered Yorkshire in the past, largely because it’s hard to find good venues when we are not familiar with the area. However, we think we’ve found one in The Trades, Rotherham. On Saturday 6th December 2014, we will be performing our final 2014 tour show at this venue and that’s it until late January, where we will likely have a different show or at least a hugely revised set list. Want tickets? Head over to The Trades website and purchase them.

Videos come in threes, it would appear?

Continuing our effort to release all the tracks from our recent Blackburn show on video, we’ve decided on tracks four, five and six. First up is Selling England, which leads into Carpet Crawl (so it’s actually two tracks I suppose):
 

 

No Son Of Ours

No Son Of Mine is next up. Again, recorded at Blackburn.
 

 

So it’s FIVE tracks really?

Well, I guess you could say we are actually releasing five tracks today. Bringing us to a close is our version of Many Too Many which leads right into Musical Box. These two tracks always go down very well, we presume because Many Too Many was never performed live by Genesis themselves and Musical Box is, well, it’s Musical Box init?
 

 

Let us send you emails from time to time

As you may know, the show that Mama puts on is quite expensive for us. We have to pay out for venue hire and all our advertising and promotion. Sometimes we also have to pay for hotels for the entire band and crew. A show like our recent road trip to Islington can often cost us way over £1,000.00 even before we’ve sold a single ticket (which is why we find it hard to cover far away places with shows).

Mama at The Met, Bury

We think our show is great quality for the price of the tickets but to make it work, we have to sell as many tickets as possible. This means we need to spread the word as far and as fast as possible, to all Genesis and live music fans. Our email newsletter is one of the only free methods we have for promoting our shows to our audience. The more people we can reach, the more will come to our shows. The more tickets we sell, the more likely it is that we can put the show into places we have not yet visited. You can sign up for our email newsletter below, simply by putting your first name and email address into the boxes, clicking Subscribe and then clicking the link in the confirmation email we send you:

We hope to see some of you in Bury and Rotherham before 2014 is all but over.

Welcome back to the Mama website! It’s less than three days to our next show which is at Benn Hall in Rugby. This is a new venue for the band, so we’re hoping and praying that we get a good audience. Tickets are selling faster now, so if you’re thinking of coming down, we would suggest you buy today. To get tickets, visit the Benn Hall website. Tickets are priced at £15.00 with a small booking fee. You can also reach the booking website by clicking the ad to the right.

This show will feature our full light show and it’s the second show to feature our new bass player David.

New Video: Ripples

We had been in the process of releasing videos of most of the tracks we performed at our Thornton Little Theatre show a few months back, but as we have a new band member onboard, we decided to continue by releasing the second half of the show as filmed at Thwaites Empire Theatre in Blackburn last Saturday. To kick us off today, we’ve got Ripples, which we didn’t include in our Thornton releases here, here, here and here. Enjoy!

New Video: Mama

Next up, we have Mama. I think this is a band favourite, not just because we took our name from it!

New Video: In The Cage Medley & Afterglow

This one is always a mammoth task to play live and it’s possibly one of the highlights of our show currently. Here’s the full version of In The Cage Medley with Afterglow tagged on the end for good measure.

 New Video: Los Endos

The last video we have for you is Los Endos. I guess today, we are featuring some of the older Genesis material that we perform.

We may post some more videos tomorrow, depending on how much time we get to put a new website post together (no promises!).

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!
