New York subway band You Bred Raptors? (YBR?) is bringing its instrumental rock and variety of ever-present masks to Cincinnati as part of their Grand Rap-Tour, YBR?’s most ambitious tour to date. While YBR? has played countless subway stations and other venues in NYC and the northeast, this is their longest tour yet and their first visit to Cincinnati and the rest of the midwest.
You Bred Raptors? is an instrumental rock band that consists of 8-stringed bass, cello, drums, and glockenspiel.
YBR? is one of a handful of musicians licensed to perform in subway stations by the Music Under New York program. YBR? performs for 60,000 New York commuters daily in a variety of eye-catching masks.
YBR? has been featured in New York Magazine, Strings Magazine, and The A.V. Club and performed on Good Day New York. They are the house band for the acclaimed off-Broadway show Sleep No More and played at the New York Museum of Modern Art with Yoko Ono this spring. They are currently planning a southern tour for the fall.
