That’s Gary “US” Bonds, of course, the veteran rock and R&B shouter who racked up five Top 10 hits between 1960-1962 – including the chart-topping party-hearty anthem “Quarter to Three.”

Now 70 years old, Bonds can still party down with the best of them, although he probably won’t still be going at “Quarter to Three.” After all, when he makes a tour stop at Revolution Hall in Troy on Friday, October 9, he’ll be playing an early show. The doors open at 6pm.

In addition to seeing a rollicking, old- school rock ‘n’ roll show, there’s another reason to catch Bonds at Rev Hall.

Here’s the press release from Revolution Hall:

“The October 9 show at Revolution Hall marks his last U.S. show before heading on a European tour. Persons attending this Friday’s show will be entered for a chance to win round trip tickets to London to see Gary US Bonds while on tour with Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman. Gary US Bonds himself will announce the VIP ticket winner at the end of the show.”

Considering that tickets for the show are just $18 in advance or $22 at the door, that could be a pretty damn good deal.

Surprise.

At the beginning of last week’s round of the Capital Region’s Got Talent singing competition there were 20 contestants, and at the end of the night, only 10 of them were scheduled to remain in the competition. But -surprise – 11 semi-finalists were still standing, thanks to audience voting, which selected Collette McComb as the wild card entry.

The ten semi-finalists are: Courtney Biondo, Katrina Marie Burg, James Dowen, Danielle Goudin, Sharon MacPherson, J.T. Maple, Eric Margan, Victoria Minucci, Danielle Mozeleski and Benjamin Uytiepo.

All 11 remaining contestants will perform on Thursday, October 8 at Revolution Hall in Troy. The theme for Thursday’s competition is the Bealtes, and each semi-finalist will perform two songs from the catalog of the Fab Four.

At the conclusion of Thursday’s competition, the judges will select five finalists, and the audience will once again select a wild card entry to move onto the final night of Capital’s Region’s Got Talent at Revolution Hall on Friday, October 16.
