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.
