The Book Of Genesis
The Book of Genesis - A tribute to Genesis
Nigel Betteridge (as Peter Gabriel/Phil Collins) has many years of experience singing the early Genesis songs. This coupled with the theatrical costumes and masks that Gabriel used (including “The Flower”, “Bat Wings”, “Magog”, “Crested Britannia” and more) makes for a truly dramatic performance;
Howard Boder (as Tony Banks) our classically trained keyboards maestro, has gone to a lot of trouble to re-create the early ‘Genesis/Banks’ keyboard sounds. Generous to a fault, Howard tells you how to get these vintage sounds on YouTube (now with over 99,000 hits);
Dave Mason (as Steve Hackett) Dave is our newest member and plays guitars. As a pro guitar teacher and tech he has the right background to take on the demanding role of Steve Hackett. Equipment: Black "les Paul" Gibson, various pedals.
Kirk Watson (as Mike Rutherford) not only has a multi-instrumentalist role (‘Rickenbacker’ double neck-bass/12-string, bass guitar, bass pedals, 12 string acoustic guitar), but sings backing vocals too – his contribution is, quite simply, awesome!
Andy Welsford (as Phil Collins) Andy is the drummer from Romeo’s Daughter and the former drummer for Meatloaf and Then Jerico.
His experience and precision is a great bonus to the band. Equipment: drums and percussion.
