Guster an alternative rock band originating in Boston, Massachusetts. Consisting of Adam Gardner, Ryan Miller, Brian Rosenworcel, and Luke Reynolds. They have been able to create such a unique sound due to the variety of their instrumentals. They took the stage at the Granda Theater in Dallas, TX on December 12, 2016. Their opening act was actually pretty good. It always amazes when a big act chooses a small band to open up for up them. I think it shows how humble and how true those musicians stay in believing in new music. The show started, off right on time actually. They played songs from their most recent album: Evermotion to their hits- being the crowd favorites. The Granada Theater was packed with people. Everyone seemed to know all the words to the songs. That angelic chorus coming from the crowd always hits you in an amazing sort of way. Their performance was absolutely brilliant. They interact with the audience so well- that really everyone there is in the moment. Ryan Miller the vocalist was so witty- making his performance absolute class. He dove into the pit of screaming fans and took photos with them, sang face to face to them. It was really spectacular to witness a band enjoy themselves so much on stage while still keeping the integrity of the live music. They had some slower songs switching from guitars to strip down piano. The crowd still remained pumped and sang through the tunes.
An important part of the performance is the visuals. The light work was awesome! Speaking both as a concert photographer and concert goer. The lights were warm and captivated the vibe of the songs perfectly. They switched to a brighter set of green lighting towards the middle of the concert. It gave the stage a cool vibe and the music coming from it was so clean. The warm tones of the lights and his voice made the performance so intimate- which it was not at all because of the amount of people that were there, but the band was still able to project both that intimate energy and a warm feeling to the audience. I would most certainly recommend you see them perform live once in you life time. The quality in their music and their charisma on stage makes for a good time.
