Herlin Riley Booking Agency Profile

Book Herlin Riley for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Herlin Riley is a world famous drummer, who displays the epitome of New Orleans rhythm. With a family deeply rooted in music and an elite bloodline of drummers, Riley is the result of one of the most creative time periods for all things rhythmic; the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. With his powerful yet sophisticated rhythmic presence, he enriched the groups of iconic improvisers such as pianist Ahmad Jamal and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis. His commanding style of melodic percussion is deeply imbedded in the creative culture of New Orleans, influencing the evolution of America’s ongoing musical journey. Riley’s most recent studio album is titled New Direction, which signifies a new focus for him as a bandleader and mentor. The record exemplifies his many inspirations, such as Jamal, Ellis Marsalis, and Danny Barker..
