It all began in Southern California when Bill Stonehouse was born. By the age of 7, he was convinced he could do the same thing he saw young Wayne Newton doing. "I was singing everything from Elvis to the Beach Boys -- whatever was on the radio, I sang it."
As a teen, he worked at Dino's Italian Inn in Pasadena where he was often asked to sing songs by Jerry Vale, Al Martino, and Mario Lanza. Later, he went on to proudly serve eight years in the US Military, stationed primarily in Fort Bragg, NC.
A classically trained vocalist, Bill studied opera under Senois Primo Puccinelli and Francesco Sorignello. As a high C baritone, Bill's voice can span four octaves. "I tend to lean toward tenor roles," Bill said. While the Baron von Trapp role in Sound of Music is his personal favorite, you could hear Bill performing songs from Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, and Fiddler on the Roof.
The intensity and range of his voice are just amazing.
His forte is as a Big Band crooner. "I was definitely influenced by the Vegas scene... Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, that whole Big Band sound." A complete musician, Bill has played several instruments including the piano and the guitar, which he learned by ear, as well as the drums and the harmonica. His best instrument, however, has proven to be his voice.
Bill has a fiercely loyal following who have become close friends. The "inner sanctum" has become as the Raleigh Rat Pack. The "Wise Guy Nights," complete with costumes, are becoming legendary.
