What makes Vinyl Fuzion different?
They combine live sax and live violin to your favorite upbeat contemporary tunes.
We're not for everyone.
We cater to event planners that want to leave a solid impression with their guests by creating a party atmosphere for your event.
Our core group is a 2-piece combo lead by saxophonist Clarence Riley & violinist Dominique Hammons. From there, our band expands unto an 8-piece full band including DJ.

When I say a must have, I truly mean you can't afford to NOT book Clarence Riley for your next event. In the middle of planning my event, I came across quite a few entertainers who were all talented, but no one really stood out. I asked other event planners for their input and I guess word spread that I was looking for something special. I opened my email one morning and it was clip of Clarence Riley being interviewed on TV speaking about goals, not being average and it really hit me. He's not a saxophonist, but a keynote speaker as well. I immediately went to his website and was blown away! Upon my searching the site, I found he was connected to gigsalad and decided to pop in and read his reviews if there were any. The reviews had me hook, line and sinker! People literally came up to me and thanked me for having him at our event. I can truly say everything I read was spot on and I thank everyone that wrote a review! Without them I might not have booked him, or received the praise from everyone for finding this wonderful, talented man. The performance was amazing and the inspirational message for my company received a standing ovation. Mr. Clarence Riley, you are a man of many talents. Thank you for everything.
Amazing musician and great performance !
Clarence Riley, the name alone makes me smile! This man saved me in my time of need. I can't thank him or his band "The Perfect Storm" enough. I was a scatter brained, all over the place, stressed out Bridezilla last year and he came to my rescue. Not only did he perform, and wonderfully at that but he helped me find the perfect photographer/video guy to get all the key shots I wanted, and some I didn't know I wanted that turned out FANTASTIC! Clarence was in tune with me and my needs through out the whole process. It was like I was walking on air from the moment I met him until after my wedding. The earlier you secure his services, the better off you will be. My friends and family couldn't believe I found a truely talented saxophone player that played during the wedding, provided the band entertainment through out the reception, and dj services too. He took care of every bit of music entertainment I needed, while being professional, caring, and quick! I have recommended him to my friends and family and thought it wasn't enough praise. I want other brides to experience the joy and peace of mind I had when I chose Clarence Riley. You can search around all you want, but you will not find anyone more talented, in tune, and deserving of your business. I guarantee he will amaze. Also, very affordable and actually cheaper than I thought it would be. Thank you Mr. Riley and The Perfect Storm. I will be using this band for future events.
Response from The Clarence Riley Experience:
Wow, thank you so much for all the kind words. The smile on your face that day let's me know, that what I do is worth it
I had to write and thank you for your professionalism, energy, eagerness to work with me and my husband, and your overall friendship. We found Clarence and The Perfect Storm at another friend's wedding and knew about 2 songs into the set that they were who we wanted to hire for our big day.
Clarence worked so closely with us to make everything perfect and it absolutely was, people danced all night long and sang along with the songs, it felt like he was part of the family. My husband and I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for an intimate, romantic, interactive party feel for their reception.
Response from The Clarence Riley Experience:
Thank you very much Ms. Sylvia. You and Mr. Green were awesome clients and I hope we can work together in the future.
From the moment I spoke with him, he not only took an interest in me, but he treated my wedding day like it was the most important day of his life. He contacted us every month leading up to the wedding to make sure our needs were met, from song requests (no other bands asked about our first dance, but he did) to providing DJ services at a discounted rate. He worked out a payment plan which GREATLY reduced our stress leading up to the wedding. I now see the difference between a budget band and a professional band and these guys are no amateurs. Worth every penny, and then some!!!
I was a little skeptical hiring someone so young, however when I met him he washed all of my concerns away. Not only was he 2 hours early, but he was extremely down-to-earth chatting with guests during setup. His band operated like a well oiled machine, and literally put on a show, comparable to a Motown experience!!! People were constantly coming up to me, congratulating me on a successful event. He even recorded the event and sent me a DVD with crystal clear video and a photos. If you're on fence about this guy, take my word for it! Hire this young man!!!
I saw Clarence at the Majic 102 Live After 5 party, he was awesome. He rocked the house. People were dancing everywhere. I had so much fun.

What is strolling saxophone? Imagine this...
Clarence Riley performing solo and getting to set the tone of your event with some smooth jazz.
If you're having a big event with a keynote speaker and you want to set the mood, where your guests can still mingle and talk?
Say no to elevator music, say yes to Clarence Riley!
If you have a wedding, Clarence can set the mood with some romantic music as your guests are being seated, and even play you lucky brides down the aisle with a song of your choice. Then he can have your guests moving and shaking with his band The Perfect Storm giving a Stage Show that will you have your entire wedding party dancing!
