What once was known as a “standard classic rock cover band bar” is getting a music overhaul with the help of GigginVT Productions. "We don’t want to be just a Barre Bar, we want to be a music venue where everyone can have a great time, and where all types of musicians can play," says Jean Gosselin, Owner of Gustos. Now offering music from all over the spectrum from VT Original Singer/Songwriters, EDM, Country, Rock, Tribute bands, and themed DJ Dance Parties...and so much more. Something for everyone will be offered to expand the clientele. We now strive to be a venue who support all types of local musicians and artists on a weekly basis.
“It’s the same old crowd, the same old music, that’s not enough for me” a previous patron responded. We want everyone to enjoy our venue, so bring your friends and help up re-invent the crowd Gusto’s. Don’t see anything on the list that you like? Let us know, we’ll make it happen.
FRIDAYS, we will offer a “cocktail hour” featuring music from local acoustic artists and VT Singer/Songwriters between 5-7pm. Then party the night away with one of our live bands from 9pm to 1am.
SATURDAYS, we have DJ’s on rotation. The first Saturday’s of the Month are EDM nights, offering all types of Electronic Dance Music from House, Trance, Trap, Dubsteb and more. The second and forth Saturdays offer an all-request DJ! Then get ready for the third Saturday of the month, dig out the costumes and party with us to our themed DJ nights from Latin/Salsa dance, Disco, 80’s/90’s dance parties, and more. Each day is something different at Gusto’s, something wild, and certainly something fun!
