For encores, the band has long been known to have drummer Brian
Rosenworcel, who is not normally known for his vocals, go up to the front microphone and sing humorous covers.
In Guster, two members play acoustic guitars, while one member plays a variety of percussion instruments. Brian
Rosenworcel, the band's percussionist, plays a combination of bongos, cymbals, and other drums, and often plays live gigs
using only his bare hands.
Guster got its start in Boston, Massachusetts. Formed in 1991, the alternative rock group
has become known for their compelling live performances and onstage humor. Core members Adam Gardner, Ryan Miller, and Brian
Rosenworcel first met while attending Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. Shortly thereafter, the three guys began
performing publicly at the Midnight Cafe coffee house.
The band kept themselves "underground" for their first two studio
albums, Parachute (1995) and Goldfly (1997), but had their mainstream musical breakthrough in 1999 with their third studio
album Lost and Gone Forever, with the single "Fa Fa," which landed in the Adult Top 40. The group has enjoyed a healthy amount
of success on the charts with Keep It Together, their fourth album. That album spawned two singles that made it into the Adult
Top 40 ("Careful" and "Amsterdam"). The three-piece band's fifth album, Ganging Up on the Sun, peaked at 25 on the Billboard
Guster cut their first album independently in 1994, entitled Parachute. The band members were still in college
at the time. This album established the band as a fan favorite of the 1990s, alongside other popular acts like the Dave Matthews
Band, The Disco Biscuits, moe, Phish, and Widespread Panic.
In 1996, the band independently cut their second album,
Goldfly, and issued it in early 1997. The following year, the group scored a contract with Sire Records and re-issued Goldfly.
In 1999, the trio put out the album Lost and Gone Forever. Since the band now had the backing of a major label, the band was
able to make appearances on big-time shows such as the Late Show with David Letterman. The group published their fourth album,
Keep It Together, in 2003, which spawned the popular lead-off single, "Amsterdam," a song that garnered heavy radio airplay.
Guster's fifth studio album, Ganging Up on the Sun, came in June 2006. The single "Manifest Destiny / Sorority Tears" was
leaked onto the Internet in November 2005. In September 2006, Guster received an award for Album of the Year (Major) at the
Boston Music Awards. 2010 saw the release of Guster's sixth full-length album, Easy Wonderful. In July 2010, Guster put out
the song "Bad Bad World," and offered it as a free download on their website. Before they kicked off their 2010 fall tour,
Guster officially announced that Joe Pisapia would not be performing on the tour. Instead, Joe would be touring with k.d.
lang, with whom he had been collaborating on several songs. Guster also confirmed that Luke Reynolds would fill in for Joe,
beginning on September 12, 2010.
Guster has toured with a string of other accomplished artists, including Ben Folds,
Nickel Creek, Tally Hall, Ben Kweller, Pete Yorn, Nada Surf, John Mayer, Rogue Wave, Good Old War, The Submarines, Jack's
Mannequin, and Rufus Wainwright.
In fall 2007, Guster headlined the Crocs' Next Step Campus Tour, with Brett Dennen
serving as a supporting performer. The tour's purpose was to inform concertgoers about ways to help the environment. The tour
made stops at fifteen colleges, such as the University of Puget Sound, Gonzaga University, the College of William and Mary,
North Carolina State University, Michigan State University, Pennsylvania State University, the University of Vermont, the
University of Florida, Furman University, Georgia Southern University, Murray State University, Vanderbilt University, Indiana
University, Williams College, and the University of Rochester.
In spring 2009, the band continued the tour, giving live

of Wisconsin, Fordham University, Union College, Colby College, Ohio State University, University of Dayton, Albright College,
