KOLARS is a Los Angeles duo that blends rockabilly, disco, glam, and mod sounds with modern rock through minimal instrumentation: guitar and a tap-dancing drummer. As Rob Kolar sings and strums his rollicking guitar, Lauren Brown uses her whole body as a percussive instrument, tap dancing out the hi-hat rhythm with her feet atop a bass drum while simultaneously playing a full stand-up kit, using dance to transform rhythms into natural extensions of her movement. Together, they create a performance that is undeniably mesmerizing to watch.
"KOLARS, a self-described “glam-a-billy” act comprised of husband and wife power team Rob Kolar and Lauren Brown. Nailing down a distinct name for the one part guitar/vocal, one part drum/tap dance ensemble is difficult to do; The dynamic duo is eclectic in every sense of the word. Kolar, who can only be described as a cosmic Elvis, sang with gusto while his counterpart provided the raw power that keeps their steam engine sound chugging along. And with a musical style ranging from what they term “Desert Disco” to “Space Blues” (which is just as entertaining as it sounds), there was never a dull moment on stage." -The Bottom Line
"We've never seen anything like this...KOLARS is a highly experimental duo committed to creating a new sound that will thrill audiences all over the world." -Bands In Town
