Guster is an American alternative rock band that is known for its live performances, humor, and cult following. It was formed by Adam Gardner, Ryan Miller, and Brian Rosenworcel in 1991 while attending Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. The members met during the freshmen Wilderness Orientation program in August 1991, playing publicly together as a trio two months later at the Midnight Cafe coffee house set in the common area of the Lewis Hall dormitory. While attending Tufts, the band lived at 139 College Avenue in Somerville, MA.

Guster are station and listener faves…..local heroes…and hugely representative of our audience’s eco-friendly sensibilities.", says 92.5 The River’s Program Director Catie Wilber. "and…they played our historic River Music Hall when they were still called Gus!"
