A JUMP suited, bearded, Elvis impersonator, fronting a band of dickie bow wearing musicians, playing Nirvana's music in the style of Las Vegas era Elvis Presley! As an idea, it is beyond bizarre.
And yet it works! Elvana, the "Elvis fronted Nirvana" tribute band has attracted acclaim and provided enormous entertainment to both fans and the curious. Vice magazine has called them, “The only band worth getting excited about this year”; Kerrang described them as "The World’s Number One tribute to Nirvana...Fronted By Elvis!”; while the Official Nirvana Facebook Page said: “The King Lives!” They have also earned praise from Billy Idol and DJ Rob Da Bank.
Galway will be able to see what the fuss is about when Elvana play the Róisín Dubh on Saturday December 9 at 8pm. Tickets are available at www.roisindubh.net, the Ticket Desk at OMG Zhivago, Shop Street, and The Róisín Dubh.
