KOLARS is a band of two members. Rob Kolar sings and strums his rollicking guitar, Lauren Brown uses her whole body as a percussive instrument. KOLARS has created a sonic world that straddles self-described genres such as Desert Disco, R&Beyond, Space Blues and Glam-a-billy. Rob produces, mixes, and writes the material. His studio experimentation is incorporated into the live show. Lauren has invented her own drumming style; she tap dances rhythms with her feet atop a bass drum while simultaneously playing a full stand up kit. She uses this dance to transform beats into natural extensions of her movement. The two perform with energy, sweat and excitement-thrilling audiences with their unabashed exuberance. As former members of glam-folk band, He’s My Brother She’s My Sister, Rob and Lauren toured the U.S. and Europe extensively, playing some of the best stages and festivals, including Bonnaroo, Summerfest, Firefly, Voo Doo, Secret Garden Party, Austin City Limits and performed on late night television (Craig Ferguson). As the band veered towards indefinite hiatus, Rob and Lauren decided to strip things down and explore what they could do as a twosome. A match musically and romantically sublime, there’s no denying the electricity this husband and wife duo have on stage.
