Adam Seth Gardner (born 31 May 1973) is an American guitarist and vocalist of the band Guster[1] and a member of the Tufts University Beelzebubs. Adam does a weekly radio show in Portland, Maine where he discusses everything from music to environmental issues.

Gardner grew up outside of Morristown, New Jersey, and played for a band called Royal Flush while a student at the Pingry School, from which he graduated in 1991.[2] He also attended Harding Township School in New Vernon, New Jersey. Gardner, working with Dave Schneider, recently created a side-project called The LeeVees. Its album, Hanukkah Rocks, consists of humorous original songs about the Jewish holiday.

Environmental activism[edit]

Adam and his wife Lauren started Reverb, an eco-friendly companion to summer rock tours. Gardner was interviewed about Reverb for the July 2006 issue of The Green Room.
