Guster is alternative rock band from Boston. Since forming in 1991, the band has built a loyal following of fans thanks, in large part, to their live shows.

In addition to their impressive musicianship, Guster is also known for their sense of humor.
For instance, sometimes the band’s vocally challenged drummer will sing a cover in a humorous fashion and audience members are encouraged to throw ping pong balls onto the stage at the end of “The Airport Song.”
Furthermore, fans are allowed to tape Guster concerts. The band has a “liberal taping policy.”
The band employs a lot of vocal harmonies and utilizes unique instrumentations both in the studio and on the stage.
Guster was actually founded while the members were attending Tufts University (Medford, Massachusetts).
As mentioned earlier, the band was formed in 1991. They independently recorded their first album, Parachute, in 1994.
How Did Guster Get Their Name?
Originally, the band was named “Gus.” Not long after the release of their first album, the band learned about an artist named “Gus” who signed with a major record label. This forced the band to add “ter” to the end of their name.
Guster remained independent until 1999 and the release of their third album, Lost and Gone Forever. That album was produced by Steve Lillywhite and issued on a major label. It was the band’s first album to chart reaching #169 on the Billboard 200.
The band began as a trio with guitarist Adam Gardner, guitarist Ryan Miller, and drummer Brian Rosenworcel (called “Thundergod” by fans). Guitarist Luke Reynolds joined the fray in 2010. Gardner and Miller both sing lead.
Guitarist Jos Pisapia was a member of Guster from 2003 to 2010.
Some of Guster’s best known songs are “Fa Fa,” “Amsterdam,” “Careful,” and “Do You Love Me?”
Their most popular song is probably “Satellite,” released in 2007 and found on the album Ganging Up on the Sun. While the single failed to chart it was featured in the motion picture Martian Child.
