It was a memorable Memorial Day week-end celebrating Gary U.S.Bonds’ 80th Birthday at Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center. Gary has been performing and turning out hits since the 1960’s and has been a major influence on Bruce Springsteen and Steven Van Zandt. His hits include the now legendary “Party” record,”Quarter to Three”. Gary followed that mega hit with many other hits,”School is Out,” “School is in,” “Dear Lady Twist,” “Twist, Twist Senora,” and “This Little Girl is Mine”.
He was backed by his superb band, The Roadhouse Rockers, some of the best musicians in the business.
Gary’s special guest, La La Brooks had the audience on their feet dancing to such hits as “Proud Mary”.
She continued with “He Kissed Me,” and “Da Doo Ron Ron.”
A great time was had by all.
The party continued the next day at a birthday brunch poolside hosted by Randy & Stephen Cooper. It was a beautiful sunshine day in the Hamptons celebrating an iconic Rock and Roll legend, Gary U.S. Bonds.
Happy Birthday Gary!
