Long Island's Gary U.S. Bonds and The Roadhouse Rockers to play My Father's Place

This will mark the rocker's first Long Island gig in six years.

From Newsday

When Gary U.S. Bonds thinks about the rollout of his comeback album "Dedication," his first collaboration with Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, all he can do is laugh.

"My manager asked, 'How do you want to promote this?'" Bonds recalls, thinking back to 1981 when the album hit the Top 30 and the single "This Little Girl" reached No. 11. "I said, 'Let's just tour Long Island.' We played just the clubs - in front of 150 to 200 people a night. We didn't make a lot of money, but we had a lot of fun."

Bonds plans to conjure that feeling again Friday when he and his band The Roadhouse Rockers play "Dedication, " as well as his classics like "Quarter to Three" and "New Orleans," at My Father's Place at The Roslyn Hotel - a request from the supper club's co-founder Michael "Eppy" Epstein. "It was Eppy's idea and it should be a nice time," Bonds says. "It's been a long time since I've played out here, maybe six years. I have a lot of neighbors saying they're coming."

The US government bond market fell to its lowest level in nearly a year this week - but Wall Street still wanted Gary U.S. Bonds to shut down the markets on Christmas Eve.

The NYSE tapped the 1960s "School Is Out" rocker to ring the closing bell at 1 p.m. on Thursday and sing "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town."

In other financial puns - Bonds' autobiography is titled "By U.S. Bonds: That's My Story." It's in its second printing, we're told, and includes anecdotes about close colleagues including Sam Cooke and Bruce Springsteen.

Gary U.S. Bonds is known for hits like "New Orleans" and "Quarter To Three," and his autobiography is in its second printing.

Music icon Gary U.S. Bonds will ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Christmas Eve in addition to performing "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" with his wife, Big Mama, and daughter, Little Mama.

The 1 p.m. event on Thursday will also serve as a celebration of the second printing of Bonds' best-selling autobiography, "By U.S. Bonds, That's My Story." In the book - written with Stephen Cooper and with a forward by the E Street Band's Steven Van Zandt - Bonds recounts stories of traveling with B.B. King and Sam Cooke, his first big break with Dick Clark, hit songs "New Orleans" and "Quarter To Three" and how Bruce Springsteen sought him out to perform with him. The book is available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon and Bonds' website.

Born Gary Anderson, the singer's name was changed to U.S. Bonds by record producer Frank Guida, according to All Music, which notes that 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." The singer made "a couple of excellent solo albums in the early '80s with the help of Bruce Springsteen," according to All Music.
