Born and raised in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn, identical twin brothers Amiri and Rahiem Taylor do not make the
type of music that their borough of origin is usually associated with. Growing up surrounded by hip hop
culture and all it's glory, the Taylor brothers had more exposure in their house to pop, funk and soul music
from the 60's, 70's and 80's. When they began writing songs in high school, they taught themselves how
to play guitar and write songs based off of the Beatles. After high school they formed Blac Rabbit,
bringing in former metal and church drummer Patrick Jones, followed by resident shredder Josh Lugo on
bass (and sometimes guitar) to play their original psychedelic rock tunes. In order to make some pocket
money, Rah and Amiri decided to start performing music on the NYC subway. They soon discovered that
people really enjoy hearing them sing Beatles songs, so they kept doing that, slowly building a reputation
around the city while also performing their original material at some of New York's best venues for up and
coming acts. They maintain that sort of dual life to this day. On December 23rd, 2017, the band release
their debut self-titled EP, which was also self recorded and self mixed. On January 26th, 2018, they were
filmed performing Beatles songs on the train by New York Nico, the self proclaimed "Unofficial talent
scout of New York City," who posted the video to his 121K followers on Instagram. Since then, the band
has seen their fan base increase significantly and will be releasing new music, and hitting the road in
