NERDVANA – The UK’s youngest Nirvana Tribute Band

Welcome to the official website of NERDVANA – The UK’s newest (and youngest) Nirvana Tribute band.

Nirvana were one of the most influential bands of all time, achieving a huge following and selling millions of albums worldwide. Their “Grunge” sound developed from the Seattle music scene in the late 1980’s and their brilliant songwriting and electric performances soon saw them achieve huge success. The band ended tragically on the 5th April 1994 when their frontman Kurt Cobain took his own life. However their music still lives on…

Fast-forward to 2020 and amidst a global pandemic, 3 young musicians joined forces to create a Nirvana tribute band to celebrate their legendary music and bring joy to Nirvana fans.
