Guy is a native of Massachusetts, currently holing up in the pines of a one-horse town on the edge of the Pioneer Valley. Guy has been breaking strings and hollering into the microphone since the late 70’s in varying bands and situations. He’s been writing songs for about as long. Bergeron started gigging heavily in the mid 80’s as a solo acoustic guitar act, rendering a quirky mix of original material, blues, old R&B and standard fare at gin joints, coffee houses and pig roasts throughout New England. This remains the Guyster's favorite way to bring the music to the people. These guitar-propelled tunes are typically tinted on the blue side, musically speaking. Elements of Blues, old school R&B and the occasional Twang are nailed together with a Rock ’n’ Roll sensibility, the recipe calling for light on experimentation and introspection, and heavy on the pulse and groove of the song. Here are some excerpts from recent reviews of Guy’s material.
DEMORAMA’S TOP HONORS “KICKERS OF ASS” LIST FOR 2002, REVIEW BY LUIS FISKE: “Bergeron deftly carries both the bluesman look and the sound. With a solid voice that's a combo of David Clayton-Thomas, Springsteen (sans the pretentiousness) and his own stylings, Bergeron nimbly handles a variety of sounds, touching on jazz, blues, folk, country and intelligent pop.”

CD Baby BIO:
Guy's #3 CD release, "POST HIP", this one is a mix of blues rock, straight out rock and roll, and R&B. Light on the introspection and heavy on the pulse, riddled with crunchy guitar and solid grooves...many cuts are suitable for dancing or head banging.
