Guster Is In The House

Guster is in Daryl's House.   I have such respect and love for both artists music, but would never have thought Guster would be dropping by Daryl Hall's.  As a new father, Adam didn't make the trip. The event was described on the band's website.
It's a show, on the interweb, where you go to Daryl's house and sing songs together (Daryl's songs, Guster's songs) in his studio while a renowned chef makes duck a l'orange and steamed mussels in the kitchen.  Then when the music is over you drink a lot of wine, eat good food, ask Daryl a million questions about what it's like to be a rock star, and pee in the snow in Daryl's backyard.  At least, I hope they included this in our episode.

Guster surprised everyone by choosing to cover an obscure Daryl solo song (from the album Sacred Songs) Babs and Babs (another surprise:   it's about the left and right brain).  There were a few selections from Easy Wonderful, which is Guster's latest arsenal of power packed tunes.  In the show Ryan describes their music as Pop, the same way one would describe the music of Harry Nilsson or The Lovin' Spoonful.  He's spot on.  On that note, here's the Claparoo of the show:  Do You Love Me.  Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
