What's with the name "BambiRaptor"? Well, it sort of relates to their sound. With mesmerizing lyrics backed by catchy guitar hooks and bombastic bass and drums, BambiRaptor creates a sound that's constantly shifting, toying with all things light and dark, calm and the name BambiRaptor might suggest. Gentle and aggressive vocal melodies intertwine to compliment beautifully detailed, effects driven guitar riffs. The music is inspired by art, literature, pop culture, personal experiences, humor, obscure subcultures and kittens on the internet. The sound parallels Bloc Party, Modest Mouse, Arctic Monkeys, The Pixies...

Formed in Chicago in 2009, BambiRaptor is a group of five friends with contrary musical influences but a similar sense of humor and perspective on the ever evolving music scene. With two Studio releases under their belt and a third in the chamber, BR's obsession is to make great songs and bend the confines of genres.

BambiRaptor has shared the bill with many other talented artists such as: Joan Jett and the BlackHearts, Dot Dot Dot, Walk The Moon, Treasure Fingers, Ballyhoo, Said The Whale, Chase Long Beach and a f*** ton more.

They’ve played over 100 Midwest shows at venues including House of Blues, The Metro, Hard Rock Café, Double Door, Cubby Bear, Angels & Kings, The Empty Bottle, Subterranean, Chicago City Limits, Reggies and LaSalle Power Co.

BambiRaptor has also been featured at several festivals including IAMFEST, Northalsted Market Days, MOBFest, Milwaukee Ave Arts Fest, Rare Air Snowboarding Fest (Traverse City, MI), Inkfest Tattoo Expo, Vitamin Water Uncapped Series, The Silver Room Block Party and Bratfest (Madison, WI).
