The Riley New Band is a 5-piece Country/Rock group hailing from The Jewel of The Ottawa Valley; Renfrew, Ontario. Trying to differentiate from the norm, The Riley New Band has tailored their show to span a multitude of generations and styles of music, including fiddle classics, country favorites, rock and blues, all while remaining true to their traditional roots.
Over the last few years, The Riley New Band has played numerous shows spanning Eastern Ontario & Quebec, averaging 30 to 40 weekends a year. Recently, they have become a regular at The Crazy Horse in Kanata, Ontario, finishing 2017 with a three-night stay for their New Year's weekend. On top of the standard bars, weddings, and private parties, the band has played several fairs and festivals, including The Renfrew Fair, The Arnprior Fair, The Russell Fair, The Cobden Fair, Sab Stock and Palmer Rapids Twin Music Festival. They’ve also been fortunate enough to share the stage with artists such as Gordon Lightfoot, Big Wreck, Doc Walker, Bobby Wills, April Wine, Deric Ruttan, Lighthouse, Kim Mitchell, and Small Town Pistols.
With 2019 underway, The Riley New Band is looking to reach more people and share their memorable live show with as many future fans as possible. If you’re looking for an act to keep people dancing, singing along, and coming back for more, The Riley New Band is the group you should be considering.
