Buffalo ,New York – One of my favorite bands currently is the genre defying opus known internationally as The Bunny The Bear .Normally the founder and angry singer of this monster of music and melody is Matthew Tybor affectingly known as The Bunny .However recently there has been a change to the band and this time The Bear ( known to fans as the angelic singer ) is none other then Haley Roback the first female bear in the band .I know the word does not exist but I have sense dubbed her “ The Beareness “ Today we have a special treat in the form of an exclusive mini interview or as I like to say a little Q and A time . A thank you to Haley for agreeing to speak with us !
