Formed in 2010 to pay tribute to the music of original grunge pioneers, Nirvana. The band has perfected all the mournful mumbling, in-key screaming, helicopter drum fills, blistering distortion, unconventional harmony and boot-rattling bass you need to blow your flannel shirt right off. Covering deep tracks, audience favorites, and most of the songs from Nirvana’s major releases, Near-vana feels as at home with an unplugged performance as with a high-energy rock show. A variety of 90s rock and other surprises also pepper the mix. Sometimes achieving technical perfection, sometimes goofing off, sometimes churning out a noisy mess, the band keeps the spirit of Nirvana alive.
