Guster still able to Keep it Together (Created 10/3/13)
It's hard not to play a by-the-numbers game when discussing the early years of the alternative rock band Guster. Now a full-fledged, four-man band, they actually began as a quirky acoustic trio. The guys met in the first year at college, and played together for the first time just two months later. It's also been close to 15 years since they've broken into the mainstream, and the band is still as popular as ever.
Known to have the oldest graduate school of international relations, Tufts University isn't exactly a hotbed for up-and-coming musicians. But when original members Adam Gardner, Ryan Miller and Brian Rosenworcel met during a freshman orientation, they turned the college circuit on its ear and ultimately released two independent "underground" albums that landed them a deal with Sire Records.
Guster hit the big time in 1999, when the album "Long and Gone Forever" became the band's breakthrough album. It cracked the lower reaches of the Billboard charts and spawned the hit single, "Fa Fa," which peaked at number 26 on the Adult Top 40. They've also enjoyed moderate success on the charts with "Keep It Together," their fourth album, and two singles in the Adult Top 30 ("Careful" and "Amsterdam").
The band added multi-instrumentalist named Joe Pisapia for "Keep It Together," and six months later he joined them full time. He would play on two more studio albums (2006's "Ganging Up on the Sun" and 2010's "Easy Wonderful") before announcing that he was done touring with the band. He was replaced in the lineup by guitarist Luke Reynolds, a former member of the band Blue Merle.
Guster will play two classic albums in their entirety Thanksgiving weekend. The band will perform their " Keep It Together" at New York's Beacon Theatre on November 30, and they will recreate their 1994 debut "Parachute" live during a matinee at New York's Brooklyn Bowl on December 1.
