Bill A. Jones

Bill A. Jones sings and swings the great standards in the tradition of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Michael Buble` & others, often backed by a Big Band, or his smaller group "The A Players."

Although known to millions from his recurring role as news anchor 'Rod Remington' on the Fox TV show Glee, Bill was named one of LA’s Best Male Cabaret/Concert Artists by BroadwayWorld’s Don Grigware, and has opened for Tony Bennett, Steve Tyrell, & The Mills Brothers. Other credits include touring with The Glenn Miller Orchestra, starring in the stage productions of Big Band Christmas & Battle of the Big Bands, and selling out LA venues with his 6-piece group "The A Players." Bill’s solo show “The Great Gentlemen of Song” made its New York debut in March 2019 to high acclaim, and he garnered multiple standing ovations during appearances with renowned pianist Lenore Raphael in North Carolina.

In addition to Glee, other television appearances include Comedy Central’s Workaholics, The King Of Queens, Everybody Hates Chris, Las Vegas, Days of Our Lives, and many other shows. In commercials, Bill is still remembered fondly as the “Don’t Count That” golfer in a memorable spot for FedEx.

He has released two CDs, "Frankly, the Sinatra Songbook" and "I've Heard That Song, Big Band Songbook," and appears regularly with various Big Bands in the Los Angeles Area.

"Whether it be the sassy "Quando, Quando, Quando" or the thrilling "Some of These Days", Bill A. Jones can really sell a song. He inhabits each fully and sends it across the footlights with TLC. His show is truly representative of that old Vegas style singing show that you just don't see any more. It brings back all the fond memories of Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Bobby Darin and the other greats of that era. Jones is that good, and you do not want to miss him whenever and wherever he performs." - Don Grigware, BroadwayWorld

"Jones’s warm baritone, brisk rhythmic flow & easygoing phrasing brought life and substance to everything he sang. In his version of “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” sung to Nelson Riddle’s memorable arrangement, he found the Sinatra magic and applied it in his own unique fashion.” - Don Heckman, LA Times
