His breakthrough was at the age of 19 with the release of New Orleans. The follow-up was the now-legendary party record Quarter To Three a number one hit with a spirit and energy that would eventually inspire and influence a generation.

Over the next three years, Bonds co-wrote and recorded hit after good time hit: School is Out, School is In, Dear Lady Twist, Twist, Twist Senora, Seven Day Weekend and others. He performed throughout the world, rising to a status so high that on a 1963 tour of Europe, he headlined above a group of relative newcomers... The Beatles.

A rare distinction for Gary is that he managed to transcend the decades with hits and in the eighties. His new friendship with longtime fans, Bruce Springsteen and Miami Steve Van Zandt led to a musical collaboration that resulted in Bond's Dedication and On The Line albums with singles: This Little Girl, Out Of Work, Jole Blon and Daddy's Come Home.. Billboard declared: "... his gritty and powerful vocals...even better than before...."

Like clockwork, twenty years later, Gary arrived with a new CD of contemporary blues Back In 20 ...and the buzz was on again. It earned him "Comeback album of the year" from the Blues foundation. With the release of his newest CD, Let Them Talk, his 2012 Christmas CD, Christmas Is On and the forthcoming biography, That's My Story And I'm Sticking To It, Gary continues bringing his never-ending tour to rapturous audiences

Songwriter, singer, music legend, Gary U.S. Bonds & his RoadHouse Rockers dishing out hearty, historical rock, roll and rhythm & blues.
