Mama at The Old Courts WiganMama to perform their 2017 show at The Old Courts in Wigan

It’s time to start promoting the next show and to do just that, we have some videos from our previous show at The Picturedrome in Holmfirth. We had a great time at that one!

So, here’s the date for your diary; Saturday 21st October 2017

If you want tickets for the show, you can buy them from Eventbrite here: www.eventbrite.co.uk

Charity walk with Jules

As you will no doubt be aware (if you attended our Holmfirth show), Jules signed up to do a charity walk in Chester over the weekend just gone. She did a bit of a collection at Holmfirth and the audience very generously donated £110.00 to The Brain Tumour Charity. Jules had this to say:

“Yesterday I took part in the Twilight Walk in Chester in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity in memory of Dale Bellis, who was a very close friend of all involved in Mama and friend of many who came to not only Mama gigs but other Genesis tributes as well. The audience at our Holmfirth gig on Friday very kindly donated £110, which I am very grateful for. As a group, Dale’s family and friends have raised around £2500.00. Thanks to everyone who supported us.”

So there you have it. Good news for our next gig, our charity efforts and now…. more good news with three videos from our recent show. First up is Ripples, which we closed the first half of the show with. There’s a bit of patter about the charity at the beginning too. After that, we have Follow You Follow Me, which seems appropriate, given the charity walk. Finally, we have Home By The Sea (Part 1). We realised this particular song hasn’t been featured much on our website, so we thought we’d post it.

Hope you enjoy the videos! Don’t forget to book your tickets for The Old Courts, Wigan!  🙂

Mama at The Old Courts Wigan

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!

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.

JC on Keyboards at AylesburyFirst Show of 2014

Our first show of 2014 took place at The Limelight Theatre in Aylesbury this past weekend and what a show it was! We had a great audience, the room had good acoustics and our light show worked really well after the upgrades we have made over the winter. Lot’s of positive comments were shared with the audience in the bar after the show and late on the band found a takeaway that had a teeny tiny restaurant in the back so we could stuff our faces with kebab, pizza and other worldly delights. Finally, the Holiday Inn proved to be a very comfortable hotel that, despite being built on a flood plain, didn’t flood. That was a bonus because it rained all weekend wherever we were in the UK!

Sound Desk Recording

So, to celebrate our show in Aylesbury, we’ve decided to share a short recording of Domino which was recorded straight out of the sound desk on the night. Well, we say short but Domino isn’t that short is it? Have a listen and see what you think: View full article »

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!
