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.

He is also featured on the New England Jazz Station and plays throughout Boston and New England at many well known venues. His performance credits include the following venues: Royal Albert Hall in London, Hampton Court Palace in London, Westminster Central Hall in London, New England Jazz Station 90.5FM in Worcester, Gov. Charlie Baker at Wachusett Country Club, Anthony's Pier Four in Boston, Prudential Top of the Hub in Boston, The Millennium Bostonian Hotel in Boston, The Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel, Hanover Theater in Worcester, Mechanics Hall in Worcester, Worcester Art Museum, Worcester Country Club, DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, DCU Center in Worcester, Log Cabin in Holyoke, The Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford CT, Empire State Plaza in Albany New York for Governor Andrew Cuomo via City of Rochester International Jazz Festival and more...

Clyde's solo CD, 'Timeless,' features such classics as 'Satin Doll,' 'It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing', 'Autumn Leaves' and more…

Clyde Wheatley’s Response:

Dear Victoria, I would just like to thank you so much for inviting me to play for your Dad's special day: his 70th birthday party and for kindly taking the time to write such a delightful review! It was truly an honor and a privilege to be a part of the wonderful birthday celebration and I am so pleased to hear that my music helped to make the day that little bit more special and that I was able to compliment the event. Warm regards, Clyde
