A St Christopher Just For Fun

A St Christopher Just For Fun

September 23, 2019

I may be 45 but once I was 21 and nuts about Nirvana.  At 45 I still remember how amazing I found their music, so full of drive, energy and passion.

Now as I've got older I still go to a lot of gigs, and one band I've seen several times are a Nirvana covers band with a difference - fronted by an Elvis impersonator from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne it really couldn't get any more bizarre. 

But Elvana are amazing.  Honestly.  The most raucous crowd surfing and mentalist mosh pit I've been in for years.  So good I went back for more.

The last time I watched them I noticed that the Elvis frontman was wearing a big silver Saint Christopher and I drunkenly warbled to my friend 'I want to make him a St Christopher with the Elvana logo on it!'

So in my sobriety I got in touch with them, said I'd like to to it just for the fun of it, and they said 'hell yes!" and this is a short vid about how it went down.  I'm now debating making them an official one they can sell on their merch store...stay tunes for deets!
