Clyde is an accomplished musician often called “the British Kenny G—with a hint of Benny Goodman,” He has developed a uniquely original, personal, and accessible live solo performance style and is a 'high end entertainer'. Accompanied by well-orchestrated arrangements of jazz standards, swing, ballads, bossa novas, and contemporary jazz, Clyde adds sparkle and elegance as he mingles with his audiences at Birthday Parties, Reunions, Cocktail Hours, Weddings, Wedding Anniversaries, Garden BBQs, Corporate & Business Functions and all other events, both large and small.

An outstanding and highly original performer, Clyde plays alto & soprano saxophones and clarinet: he captivates the hearts of his listeners through every note that he plays, each one charged with emotion and feeling that conjures up memories and scenes in the lives and hearts of his audience. Clyde's classy, sharp appearance, together with his highly professional command of his instruments, brings his performance to a level of excellence rarely found these days. His personal appearances leave a lasting memory of musical genius.

Where do we even begin!! Clyde Wheatley was so professional even before the event. Working out the event details over email and phone was both successful and a breeze. The night was filled with joy and laughter as Mr. Wheatley spiced up the mood with smooth jazz and romantic melodies. Our guests were absolutely blown away by his talent and jazzy flow. We are so happy and thankful that we were able to book Mr. Wheatley. We would ABSOLUTELY recommend this multi-talented performer!
