In February 2019 we played a show with the Omaha Symphony. Playing with symphonies is always a thrill, but this night was special - an unexpected perfect storm of emotion, performance, and room energy. Band members were openly weeping on stage (maybe just the drummer) and the music felt transcendent. At the end of the night, we took a collective unironic bow to a standing ovation, walked backstage, looked at each other and asked, “What the hell just happened!?”
The evening was recorded! And we are thrilled to announce that OMAGAH! Guster With The Omaha Symphony will be available May 8th, a night we would have otherwise been on stage with the Boston Pops Symphony Orchestra (postponed by COVID-19).
We feel a lot of pride to have a live record that we made 27 years into our career, that we sung and played so well. With much thanks to our fans and the incredible members of the Omaha Symphony, who were also so eager for us to share the music from this special night.
