Smells Like Nirvana Tribute

Celebrate the legendary sounds of Nirvana & Kurt Cobain with national traveling Nirvana tribute 'Smells Like Nirvana’ as they perform songs from Nevermind, In Utero, Bleach, and more (b sides/rare songs).

The band is from Chicago, IL and features ex-member of the Grammy-nominated metal band Trivium and hit musical Rock of Ages vocalist Paul Wandtke, with bassist Mike Petrasek and drummer Joey Kus (World War Me). Smells Like Nirvana has been traveling all around the country for the past 8 years celebrating the legend of Nirvana and Kurt's music and they one day said "you know dudes, let's write some original music too"! So they launched 'Dead Original', and since then Dead Original has toured and supported the legendary rock band Candlebox and has even supported bands such as Seether, Jonathan Davis (Korn), 10 Years, and more.
