Join us at The Bend Theater for an ultimate grunge tribute night with Smells Like Nirvana featuring Listening Party!

Get ready to be transported back to the '90s with their electrifying performance 

This is a night of pure nostalgia you won't want to miss!


Composed of seasoned pros and DIE-HARD FANS of Nirvana, Smells Like Nirvana’s live tribute to Nirvana is a haunting episode of grunge filled angst and rock prowess played without click tracks or backing tracks a trait that is rare in today’s contemporary musical landscape, a trait and philosophy that Nirvana lived by.


Celebrate the legendary sounds of Nirvana & Kurt Cobain with national traveling Nirvana tribute 'Smells Like Nirvana’ as they will perform songs from Nevermind, In Utero, Bleach, and more (b-sides/rare songs).


Vocals, Guitar / Paul Wandtke (ex Trivium)
Bass / Mike Petrasek (Bedlem)
Drums / Benny “Boomba” Piazza

Listening Party:

Over the last decade, Milwaukee-based band Listening Party has sought to create songs that deeply resonate with their listeners. Their folk and Americana-steeped sound expertly and reverently takes the pulse and traditions of their genre while adding their own charm. Milwaukee-based Shepherd Express even compared the band to The Avett Brothers and The Lumineers. They’ve stayed busy with shows ranging from dive bars to regular main stage performances at Summerfest. Pounding the pavement for over 120 shows a year throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest has led them to a road-tested live performance.




Doors open at 6:30 PM to give you time to find your seats, visit our historic lobby, concession stand and fully stocked bar!

Show begins at approximately 7:30 PM
