KOLARS

KOLARS is a self-described desert disco rock duo based out of Los Angeles. The band is hard to miss from a visual perspective. The two are often bedazzled in sequin clothing sporting glittery instruments. Perhaps the most eye-catching aspect of KOLARS is percussionist Lauren Brown, who stands atop a floor tom playing with her feet, equipped with tap dancing boots. She also has an array of drums and symbols in front her, which she plays in a more traditional sense. Both Brown and vocalist/guitarist Rob Kolar are former members of the folk group He's My Brother She's My Sister, and are married. KOLARS is far from a folk band, the tunes are electrifying and fast-paced, blending elements of new and old to create something entirely unique. KOLARS takes an arduous approach to making music, touring almost constantly and treating the band like a business.
