Gary is an honoree of the Rhythm & Blues Foundation, an inductee of The Long Island Music Hall of Fame and a "favorite son" of the Blues Brothers (you can see Gary in the "Blues Brothers 2000" movie, singing his classic "New Orleans" along with a multitude of music legends like Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Eric Clapton, Travis Tritt, Lou Rawls and many, many more).
A rare distinction for Gary is that he managed to transcend the decades with hits. His inspiration for Bruce Springsteen and Steven Van Zandt, who had grown up on Bonds' music led to a chance meeting in 1980. A friendship developed and, shortly after, a musical collaboration which resulted in Bonds' "Dedication" and "On the Line" LPs, with singles: "This Little Girl Is Mine," "Out of Work," "Jolé Blon" and "Daddy's Come Home". Reviews noted "...His gritty, soulful and powerful vocals... even better than before...". Gary received a Grammy nomination for Rock Male Vocalist in 1982 for "Dedication".
