The Genesis Tribute Band
MAMA faithfully reproduce the sights and sounds of the high octane, contemporary Genesis rock concert with fantastic musicianship from well acclaimed musicians.
British Supergroup, Genesis are among the highest selling recording artists. With over 130 million albums sold worldwide, they were inducted into the 'Rock and Roll Hall of Fame' in 2010.
MAMA will take you on a journey from Genesis' early Peter Gabriel years, through the Phil Collins' era of the 70s and 80s and right up to their final studio album, 'We Can't Dance'.
Lead singer, John Wilkinson, delivers the Phil Collins vocal sound with power, passion and precision. On keyboards, the band benefits from the technical wizardry of John Comish. Stunning guitars are provided by Mark Comish, backed up with the rock solid technical playing of James Cooper on drums and Dave Jones on bass, bass pedals and backing vocals
Formed in 2011 the band has established itself as one of the top Genesis tribute bands in the UK. From their debut show at The Pacific Road Arts Centre in Birkenhead in March 2012 the band has captivated their audiences playing tribute to the music of Genesis to a very high standard.
Alan Hewitt: Author of The Waiting Room the longest established Genesis webzine had this to say about the band's first show:
'The performance at the Pacific Road Arts Centre in Birkenhead rates as one of the most impressive debuts I have ever seen. Musically spot on the money. Vocally, uncannily like Genesis and visually, convincing enough for me to suspend my disbelief. At times it was as if Genesis themselves were on stage. Either that or they had been cloned - impressive stuff!'
The band set list comprises Genesis's greatest hits such as Mama, Turn It On Again and Invisible Touch, as well as album tracks such as In The Cage and Ripples.
