Riley does solo guitar and vocal gigs as well as his One Man Band, duo and trio shows. His versatile mix of smooth jazz, classical, pop, rock, country and folk music allows him to fit seamlessly into any crowd or function. "I am one of those fortunate individuals who absolutely love performing live gigs. I've done wedding proposals, engagements, weddings, funerals, corporate, private and public shows, cruises, etc. No matter what the event, I do my best to make sure my performance is precisely what the client wants," he details. "I am just as comfortable in a tuxedo as cowboy boots and hat and everything in between. The solo act might just be me and my guitar, sometimes with vocals and sometimes without. The One Man Band is terrific since I play and sing along with tracks recorded and played myself in my recording studio. Be sure and watch my One Man Band video sampler here or on YouTube to experience what I am talking about. I also have a duo and trio for larger events with a larger budget."
