Boston group Guster to perform
Guster, a percussion and guitar trio whose second CD Goldfly was named Independent Album of the Year at the 1998 Boston Music Awards, will perform at Bates Saturday, Sept. 26, at 9 p.m. in the Clifton Daggett Gray Athletic Building. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased in the student activities offices at Bates, Bowdoin and Colby colleges. At Bates, call 207-786-6468 for tickets and more information.
Described by the Boston Globe as a “fury of intense, blistering guitars, percolating bongos and impeccable vocal harmonies,” Guster was named best live act at the 1996 Boston Music Awards and best local acoustic act by the Boston Phoenix/WFNX Best Music Poll.
The trio of guitarists-vocalists Ryan Miller and Adam Gardner and percussionist Brian Rosenworcel met in 1992 at their alma mater, Tufts University, and performed in the Boston area during their college years. Their first CD, Parachute, was named 1995′s best local debut album by the Boston Globe. The band also was featured on the national AWARE 3 Compilation in 1995, the same year the threesome graduated from Tufts with honors.
