Shawn Riley began his professional music career in 1979 as a solo artist. Throughout the early years, Shawn would share the stage with many performers and put together a band when necessary. In 1997, the call for a band became a regular occurrence and the journey began.

Surrounding himself with incredible talent, The Shawn Riley Band was borne and has quickly become one of the top live performance bands in Michigan. With a perfect blend of musical selections from the early 50's and beyond. Shifting gears from the oldies to taking on some of today's new sounds, promoters have described it as Yesterday's Top 40. In addition, there is a collection of Irish & Celtic songs both new and old, a bit of country, a bit of blues, and a whole lot of energy and fun.
