Hearing their music being played live seems to bring out the funky elements, which is awesome for people who like to get their groove on” Kiwi fans  will be treated with ‘Californication’, ‘Under the bridge’, ‘Can’t stop’ and many more memorable Chili tracks!

Nirvana disbanded at the height of their success following Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994. Twenty three years on their music is still relevant today and  still has an enormous following.” – according to singer/guitarist Erik Graham. ‘Lithium’, ‘Come as you are’, ‘Heart shaped box’ and of course ‘Smells like teen spirit’ and many more from all Nirvana’s studio albums will be performed on the night.

Both bands were formed in Auckland and have been performing to sold out venues since their inception in 2016.
