8:00 pm, Saturday September 21Gary U.S Bonds and The Roadhouse RockersBlues, Motown/R&B, and Rock (classic)
The hits of Gary U.S Bonds were and still remain an irresistible invitation to an instant party! As America’s baby boomers moved into their mid teens and real rock ‘n roll was dwindling supply, Gary came roaring out of Norfolk, Virginia in 1960 with the relentless pounder “New Orleans”. Attention was brought to the record by having promotional copies sent to radio stations in sleeves inscribed “Buy U.S. Bonds”- hence at age 19, Gary Anderson became Gary U.S. Bonds. 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. In fact, the Rock and Roll of Fame lists “Quarter to Three: as one of the 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.Over the next three years, Gary 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.
