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've been doing solo gigs for 18 years, and still do duo and trio gigs on occasion. I am one of those fortunate individuals who absolutely love performing live gigs. I've done wedding proposals, ceremonies and receptions, funerals, corporate, private and public shows, cruises, hayrides, campfire cowboy shows, 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 is me and my guitar, sometimes with vocals and sometimes without. I will add Bryan Stroud on keyboards for duo gigs and a drummer for trio shows with larger events and budgets."

I had set up our corporate event about six weeks out. I was impressed that Riley remembered the small items and incorporated them into his performance. Riley is a very talented performer! So many guests commented about their experience and how much they enjoyed listening to Riley Wilson. Even the hotel staff made a point to share their positive impressions of Riley. I would recommend him to anyone who enjoys live music!

Wow he was good! Riley is easy to work with so much to the point that I thought he's too good to be true...and darn, he's good, AMAZING! If you are looking for a musician, choose Riley Wilson and devote your energy to other tasks because he is the utmost professional and he will fit right in the groove of your event. Oh my, it's crazy how smoothly Riley carried the music for my wedding and reception and we ran late to our own wedding. He didn't need instruction or guidance and man he's good. I kept checking to see if it was really him playing or a track someone slipped onto the turntable. Wow, he's wonderful!
