Smells Like Nirvana is composed of seasoned pros and die-hard-fans of Nirvana fronted by Paul Wandtke (ex Trivium, Dead Original), drummer Nick Shabatura (Absent Mind) and Chris Tobler on bass. Their live tribute to Nirvana is a haunting episode of grunge filled angst playing songs from Nirvana's albums Bleach, Nevermind, In Utero and MTV Unplugged as well as rare b-sides and more; played without click tracks or backing tracks, a trait that is rare in today’s contemporary musical landscape, a trait and philosophy that Nirvana lived by.
