THE SOUNDS of supergroup Genesis will echo throughout the Benn Hall on Friday September 26.

Tribute band Mama take to the stage to honour the music of Collins, Gabriel, Hackett, Rutherford and Banks which made Genesis one of Britain’s most successful rock acts

A spokesman for Mama said: “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 and a loyal crew, playing for other fans.”

And their philosophy would seem to paying off by the reaction of Genesis fans to their shows in the three years they have been together.

The band currently plays some 25 shows a year at venues across the country.

Frontman and lead vocalist John Wilkinson has one paticular praise for for his ability to deliver on the Phil Collins vocal sound of Genesis with power, passion and precision.

On keyboards, the band benefits from the technical wizardry of John Comish, while guitars are provided by Mark Comish, backed up James Cooper on drums and David Jones on bass.

Tickets, priced £15, are available by calling 01788 533719, or visiting, where further information is also available.
