Guster is a rock band hailing from Boston, Massachusetts. The four-piece group got their start in 1991 after meeting at Tufts University near Boston. Despite their auspicious beginnings, the alternative rockers achieved mainstream success in 1999 with their hit album, Lost and Gone Forever. This was the first album Guster didn't release independently after they signed a record deal with Sire Records. Guster has toured regularly both around the United States and internationally since their rise to fame on the backs of hit songs like Fa Fa and Amsterdam. Guster is still active in writing and recording new alternative rock music well into their career.
One of the most interesting things, outside of their songwriting, about Guster is their quirky style. The band features Ryan Miller and Adam Gardner both on acoustic guitars while Brian Rosenworcel plays percussion instruments with only his bare hands. Interestingly, Gardner will take the role of a traditional bassist on the acoustic guitar. Rosenworcel is the centerpiece to the band's quirkiness as he will often step out front during shows and sing hilarious versions of off-kilter cover songs. The fans are even in on the action with gags related to some of Guster's songs. Famously, diehard fans will toss ping pong balls at the stage during "Airport Song" because you can hear ping pong being played on the song's recording.
