The Genesis Legacy is a unique show among the other regular Genesis tribute bands that chooses to celebrate the musicians surrounding the iconic band rather than Genesis itself.
Formed in 1967, the band’s name has become one of the most recognisable brands in the music world. While members Mike Rutherford, Steve Hackett, Anthony Phillips and Tony Banks haven’t had as illustrious commercial careers themselves, their involvement in Genesis made household names out of it’s most famous sons: Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel.
Alongside the biggest hits of Genesis, Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel, The Genesis Legacy’s show includes hits from Mike Rutherford’s Mike and the Mechanics and Steve Hackett’s solo career – providing an evening of entertainment that appeals to general music loves alongside die-hard fans of the music.
Featuring 6 world class musicians, The Genesis Legacy re-produces the iconic recordings with an unparalleled accuracy with so much love and attention being paid to the sounds as well as the music.
Fronting the band is Phil Collins tribute Chris Hayward, who won the coveted “National Tribute Band Award” in 2016 for his “Phil Collins” – and it’s a title he wears well. Chris has the mannerisms and unmistakable sound of Phil down to a tee and the band delivers their unique show as if the world postulated the question: “what would happen if Genesis performed the music from your solo careers too?”
The Genesis Legacy, in conjunction with Julian Lewry Music and Farnecombe Music Club , bring their wonderful show to St James’ Church in Weybridge on the 11th May.
