Gary U.S. Bonds

After moving to the Norfolk, VA, area in the mid-'50s, young Gary Anderson began plying his vocal wares, first in church, later with a local group called the Turks. When he was not yet 21, he was approached by local record producer Frank Guida to join his tiny Legrand label. Guida changed Anderson's name to U.S. Bonds, hoping the first release would get extra airplay by disc jockeys mistaking it for a public-service announcement. The result was the classic "New Orleans," combining rock-combo raunch with impassioned, scorched soul-singing that set the stage for all that would follow. Guida double- and triple-tracked Bonds' voice and the resulting murky production gave all the hits (including "Quarter to Three," "School Is Out," and "Dear Lady Twist") a party-in-outer-space quality all their own. Though he kept recording, making a couple of excellent solo albums in the early '80s with the help of Bruce Springsteen, Bonds is best seen today dotting the landscape of oldies shows the world over, singing the songs that made him famous. ~ Cub Koda

Guess who is honoring his American Idols with his new album?? That’s right you guessed it. It is Russian-born entertainer Oleg Frish. He is one of my favorite Classic Standards artists. Not only is he a talented singer, but a TV and Radio host as well as a journalist. The newest single off this album is called “You’re Nobody Til Somebody Loves You” and everyone needs to take a listen to it. You can watch Oleg and Gary U.S. Bonds perform it on YouTube at: http://bit.l y / O F - S o m e b o d y - L o v e s - Y o u .

Gary came to the grand opening of "Figaro's" mom's record shop in Charleston South Carolina in the early 60s. Gary spent an hour talking about the past on the phone with mom while she fought leukemia and went on the be with the Lord on July 5th 2007. Gary proved to be a friend to the end. Thanks Gary

your bio lists three songs by this artist ("quarter to three", "school is out" and "dear lady twist") but the genome project says it can't find any one of them by this artist. What's up??
