Guster spreads biodiesel consciousness

By | April 01, 2006
The popular rock band Guster will be touring on biodiesel as it heads out for the first annual "Campus Consciousness Tour." It's a project of its environmental non-profit group Reverb. The tour, featuring Guster as the headlining act, starts this spring. The National Biodiesel Board is a sponsor of the tour.
Guster ( started out on an independent label, and word of mouth quickly spread, making them one of the most popular unpromoted bands of the late 1990s. Since then, Guster has become even more renowned with several recent top hits like "Amsterdam" and "Careful." It is known for its sold-out shows, especially in college markets.
The Campus Consciousness Tour ( aims to educate, inspire and activate students, and above all, leave a positive impact on each community and college/university that the tour reaches, according to the band.
In addition to biodiesel use, the tour will feature other eco-friendly practices, such as NativeEnergy's wind power credits, a Clif and Luna Bar pavilion with information on renewable energy and fuels, and clean energy demos and discussions featuring members of Guster. In addition, community "give-back" activities and fun promotions will take place at each venue.
Reverb ( is a project of the nonprofit organization Artistic Resources In Action Foundation (ARIA). Reverb's aim is to raise awareness and support for the environment by connecting touring bands and their fan-base to environmental issues and organizations via an interactive eco-village.
Born from the success of the "Green Highway" eco-village created by musician/activist Bonnie Raitt ( and executive producer Kathy Kane, Reverb seeks to spread its eco-village model to new tours and audiences throughout North America. Raitt also tours on a blend of biodiesel.
