MAMA plays the music of British supergroup Genesis and some pieces by former members. The band is based in the UK and currently plays 20-25 shows a year at venues across the country.
Four of the five band members are based in the North West England area, the fifth lives in Suffolk! We are led by front man and lead vocalist John Wilkinson, highly acclaimed for his ability to deliver on the Phil Collins vocal sound of Genesis with power, passion and total 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 David Jones on bass.
Our philosophy is very simple…we are not trying to BE Genesis..we are just five part time musician Genesis fans, aided and abetted by helper fans (more of you would be very welcome!) and a loyal crew, playing for other fans…”Simples!”
We are coming up on 3 years old as we go in to 2015 and have some great venues lined up for this year, so if you are a Genesis/Collins/Gabriel/Hackett/Rutherford/Banks etc fan or only have a passing interest in their music don’t get hung up on the tribute thing…just come along, catch one of us for a chat and have a good time!
