Cleveland OH - The night was bitter cold but the venue was packed .The Bunny The Bear were in town last night as on their Winter 2014 headline tour . The Foundry Concert Club hosted the night as fans trekked across the Buckeye State to see one of their favorite acts . I spoke with fans from Massillon to Madison and Toledo and all points in between and this was an exciting night . The Bunny The Bear is an experimental duo that hails from the Buffalo New York area and is currently signed by Victory Records .The brainchild of Matthew Tybor and Chris Hutka ,they respectively perform as their alter ego aka The Bunny The Bear .The artists are joined onstage by a group of touring musicians very similar as how a conductor hires an orchestra. They are backed by Alex Matos on guitar ,Jose Garzon on bass, Tommy Vinton, drums and Nate Blasdell on guitars . In support of their critically acclaimed 2013 release “ Stories “ the group burst into much loved songs as “ In Like Flynn, Ocean Floor, Aisle ,Pale Green Eyes and The Seeds We Sow. “ This was a special night for me as I have seen this act before but never like this . Let me back track for a moment , like all great artists and acts there is always conflict that can arise over time and Chris Hutka left temporary and a replacement Bear was utilized for a while so I never had the opportunity to see the band in their original glory . Well I can say the wait was worth it . They shined , Chris hit the high notes like an angel singing to a chorus to and Matt brought the anger and inner turmoil we all have inside . Think of Jekyll and Mr .Hyde set to music . The band just finished recording their soon to be released album and this reviewer is looking very forward to it .They are currently finishing up their winter tour with a few more weeks to go A rumor is to look for a major tour in the spring being direct support to a major artist .
