I’m Jon Arons! I’m a Grammy-winning musician, singer, writer, and dancer. It has been a privilege to have worked with so many greats in this business. In Pop and R&B I’ve played with Alicia Keys, Jon Bon Jovi, Gloria Gaynor, Stevie Wonder, Usher, and Pharrell. In Jazz I’ve performed with Charles Mingus Big Band, The Vanguard Orchestra, and as a member of the Dave Holland Big Band on the 2005 Grammy winning Big Band album Overtime. In Salsa/Merengue, I’ve played with Cuco Valoy, Nino Segarra, Hector Tricoche, and Raulin Rosendo.
I invite you to check out my music and videos, which feature my original music and the classic television appearances as the dancing trombone player on America’s Got Talent, Jimmy Fallon, Jay Leno, and Steve Harvey, among others.
I will be posting about shows, and other projects like my upcoming book “Uncle Tim’s Condo: What Silly Dancing White Men Represent in America” discussing my personal experiences with culture, stereotypes, and entitlement.
And if you are into education, please check out my parents’ website, The Melody Arons Center for Applied Preschool Research. I come from a family of artists and civil rights activists, hoping to continue the tradition through music and education.
