Few bands can stay together for more than a decade and still keep creating something different and new.
One of them, however, is Guster. They will be performing at the Interlochen Music Festival, on Tuesday, July 25 along with Ray LaMontagne.
I just love how our band feels unpredictable right now, said percussionist Brian Rosenworcel.
Guster has been together for 13 years and released its fifth album June 20, called Ganging Up On the Sun. Ganging Up On the Sun debuted at number 25 on the Billboard Top 200 charts.
We have had some very good responses with the new album, said Joe Pisapia, multi-instrumentalist. We were in Milwaukee for a show and the crowd was already singing along with the new stuff.
Pisapia plays several insturments on the new album, including banjo, dulcimer, trumpet and lap steel guitar. He also served has a producer for half of the songs on the album.
Guster is an alternative band that was originally formed by Ryan Miller, (guitar and vocals), Adam Gardner (guitar and vocals) and Rosenworcel. Pisapia joined the band six years ago after he and his brother toured with Guster for a few months.
