“They are talented, entertaining, distinctive and fun. But, most of all, Kolars are damn good, and they deserve your attention next time they’re in your area.” That’s what we wrote about this talented duet the last time they passed through The Sunshine State. Now, they are back and they are a can’t miss act for fans of new and catchy rock.
It’s an ecstatic moment when you find a group of people who excel at what they do and then they blow your mind by not only bringing back to life a long-lost sound but they improve upon it. Even in another life I feel as if Astari Nite would be as talented as they are now with the show I recently attended at Will’s on Mills (as locals call this venue, but for name’s sake the venue goes by Will’s Pub).

Astari Night Features New Music on Upcoming Florida Dates
In order for me to describe the song, “The Girl Who Tried,” I would have to take you back to a track called “The Boy Who Tried.” Released in 2014 by a band called Astari Nite, off of their EP Anonymous, this song starts with a low frequency gritty rumble and makes it’s way into synth sounding electronica with a nice heavy bass and drums.
Kolars is the newish lovechild of two former members of modern folk band He’s My Brother She’s My Sister. Rob and Lauren Kolar have crafted a distinctively creative sound that I’d categorize as Danceabilly. Imagine what would happen when Bleachers collide with Social Distortion – that’s the best way I can describe their sound.
Straight-forward Southern guitar rock seems to be a sadly diminishing genre these days, but this weekend, I had the chance to enjoy some sweet, bluesy rock when Atlanta’s Brother Hawk made a soulful tour stop at Will’s Pub in Orlando.
Last Sunday, Will’s Pub demonstrated just why they’ve become such an important part of the Orlando rock music scene as they celebrated twenty years of memorable rock ‘n roll in their cozy Mills Avenue venue.
Over the past twenty years, this tiny club on Mill Street has established themselves as the premiere Indie rock venue in the Orlando area. This Sunday, Will’s Pub celebrates twenty amazing years of music, brews and camaraderie with a huge full day bash.
