Genesis Convention 2007
  25 / 26 August 2007  
  A weekend of MUSIC from
Five of the UKs finest tributes
  Competitions and Prizes Rare Audio & video
  • Team of 6 on the convention committee.
  • Convention has never been held in Scotland before, so we wanted to change
  • Being held over the Saturday and Sunday of the August Bank Holiday weekend
    (25th/26th) in a great floating venue, called The Renfrew Ferry, which used
    to be a working ferry, but is now permanently moored on the River Clyde and
    is a great venue for concerts. It has bars and a restaurant, so thereīs no
    need to leave the venue during the event.
  • We have the UK's top five different tribute acts playing over the 2 days.
  • On the Saturday, the music kicks off with a performance by Doug Melbourne
    & Tony Patterson, both ex-members of a tribute band called ReGenesis, who
    will be performing some Peter Gabriel songs.
  • Followed by a band called G2, who cover the Gabriel and early Collins era
    of the band, during the 1970s. First time in Scotland.
  • Finishing up with Face Value, who normally perform a mix of Genesis and
    Phil Collins solo material, but are putting on a Genesis-only show for us,
    covering the 1980s and early 90s. First time in Scotland.
  • On the Sunday, the music starts with the Carpet Crawlers, covering the
    golden age between 1970 and 1982. First time in Scotland.
  • Finishing up the weekend are In The Cage, who have played the ferry before
    and cover the period 1970 to 1980.
  • On both days, the music starts at around 7pm and finishes when it finishes
    (we have a license until 1am!), but the event itself will start at noon on
    both days, for quizzes, rare video and audio shows, raffle etc.
  • Special guest appearance by John Mayhew, ex-drummer with the band. He
    played on Trespass and now lives in Glasgow. There may be other guests, but
    they canīt be confirmed yet!!
  • All members of the band, past and present, are aware of the convention and
    will be providing some very nice signed items for us to give away as prizes.
