There's an Elvis-fronted Nirvana tribute act coming to Bristol this year

Posted on: 20 Jun 2022

Yep, you read that right. Catch the live combo you never knew you needed at The Marble Factory.


Elvana will be tearing through Nirvana's iconic back catalogue live at The Marble Factory in September, splicing up the hits with the King's finest moments as they pay homage to two of the all-time great rock acts.


Having last played in Bristol in 2019, the band have gone from strength to strength in their short lifespan, garnering a reputation as one of the best - and most unique - tribute bands in the UK right now.


Tickets for Elvana: Unplugged at The Marble Factory on Wednesday 14 September are on sale now and can be found here.



Since forming in the mid-2010s, Elvana have played at major venues up and down the country, including sell-out shows at Shepherds Bush Empire, Nottingham's Rock City and Manchester Albert Hall.


Pre-pandemic the band hit a major peak, performing a huge UK tour before playing three triumphant shows at Glastonbury 2019, and they've been touring relentlessly since Covid-19 restrictions were lifted last year.


Their upcoming Bristol show falls slap bang in the middle of a busy live schedule, which will also see Elvana play in Nottingham, Dublin, Belfast, Birmingham, Newcastle, Salford, Milton Keynes and Glasgow between now and September.



In an interview with Rock at Night, the band shed some light on their curious beginning as Elvana, saying that the whole thing "pretty much started as a joke that snowballed into something we never imagined.


"We’ve been in ‘original’ bands for years," they continue, "but had all but retired to concentrate on the rat race, day jobs and family life. Then a friend of ours asked us to perform some cover songs at their fancy dress party."


Elvana is the embodiment of a joke that got out of hand, providing an intoxicating mix of a silly foundation and a glorious amount of top tunes.


Tickets for Elvana: Unplugged at The Marble Factory on Wednesday 14 September can be found here.
