NERVANAtribute

NERVANA <br /><br />Both Steve Kilroy (Drummer) & Dave Eve (Bassist) had been a part of 'Australian Nirvana' for the better part of the last 5 years, touring more than 7 European countries constantly before setting out on their own to find a new singer. This was a tough decision though as the success of 'Australian Nirvana' was substantial and they both knew that building on that success would require finding the ultimate Kurt, so to speak. Especially because at the groups inception, 'Kerrang' interviewed 'Chris Watts' and he 'reckons it was even better than Nirvana live'. That being the case, we knew we needed the best the world had to offer, and our patience paid off." <br /><br />It took nearly two years to find Nervana's new front-man 'Jon O'Connor' in countless youtube searches, wading through the seemingly endless sea of disappointing Kurt wannabees. Both Dave and Steve, having put together a killer Tool tribute, (The Perfect Tool) were determined to find a singer that had it all. Some had the look but sounded nothing like Kurt and vice-verse. We also knew the guy would have to be young. Nirvana is about youth and angst and we wanted to give the fans what they really want to see and hear when they come to see a Nirvana tribute. <br /><br />Jon had been perfecting his technique and had been searching for the right rhythm section in his hometown of Waterford, Ireland with little luck and had just about given up hope when drummer Steve Kilroy contacted him and in a matter of two weeks, flew to the states to rehearse, record and do a tour in the US. It was obvious after the first rehearsal that it was going to be better than expected and when they hit the stage, it was if they had been playing together for years not days! <br /><br />Touring is what the boys in Nervana live for, so expect to see them soon! <br /><br />"We're looking forward to seeing all you crazy Nirvana fans out there,. and don't forget to help spread the word through sites like myspace, youtube, twitter etc" <br /><br />+ Peace + <br /><br />Nervana
