As America’s baby boomers moved into their mid teens, Gary began his professional career. For his first hit, "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. Bonds co-wrote and recorded hit after hit: “School is Out", "School is In", "Dear Lady Twist", "Twist, Twist Senora", "Seven Day Weekend" and others. His inspiration for Bruce Springsteen and Steven Van Zandt led to a chance meeting in 1980, friendship developed and, a musical collaboration, which resulted in Bonds' "Dedication" and "On the Line" LP's, with singles: "This Little Girl Is Mine”, "Out of Work", "Jole Blon" and "Daddy's Come Home". Gary tours with his group, the very highly-regarded and powerful, Roadhouse Rockers, performing his hits, some new songs, some rockin’ R&B Blues and generally thrilling all audiences.
