Think Twice duo

Duo Rockwall

The region’s top ranked Rock Duo, Bryan Stroud and Riley Wilson have all the bases covered with THINK TWICE. Their power packed twosome combine start of the art electronic percussion with “live” guitar, bass, keyboards and vocals for a sound bigger than many larger bands. Everything is done in real time without the use of sequencing or backing tracks. If you’re looking for versatile entertainment to please any crowd, your search is over. THINK TWICE handles every type of popular music from rock and country to pop standards, folk and smooth jazz tunes. For variety on a budget or a smaller function where “live drums” consume too much space, consider this popular duo. THINK TWICE can sound as big as a 4-7 piece band taking up less floor space, or sound as intimate as a solo performer- all in the same performance!

Bryan and Riley begin their fourteenth year of musical performances together in 2014. Riley is a graduate of Hollywood’s famed Musicians Institute, author of “Guitar Made Simpler,” music teacher and voice over specialist. Bryan played keys and sang for many years in his native New Mexico before relocating to Texas. Both have sung lead in all their individual groups and together, they have a unique sound that must be heard to be appreciated.

THINK TWICE performs a wide variety of music, from smooth and straight ahead jazz, to rock, country and pop material, from the 60’s to today. Bryan and Riley are flexible and professional enough to handle special requests and specific clothing attire, from Hawaiian and casual dress, through Western wear and even tuxedos for formal events. They adapt easily to the most stressful situations and deal comfortably with all audiences- even nervous mothers of the bride! Think Twice manage to impress the most critical audiences, no matter where they perform.

“We always have a great time playing together,” insists Riley. “I’ve told people for years that Bryan and I are really twin sons of different mothers. We have a unique synergy when we play together and even when we play something unrehearsed at a gig because someone requested it, Bryan and I always manage to sound like we’ve done it before. When we joined forces in early 2000, it felt like we’d been playing together since we were kids in the garage.”

IN THEIR OWN WORDS

“Unbelievable how “Think Twice” MADE our New Years celebration so special! We are a small group of varied ages and they played music all night long that made ages 60- late 80’s get up and dance! Everyone had a fabulous time! It was the best New Years party we have ever had at Lakeside Village! Riley, we will definitely use you again! Thanks for providing us with a song list of all of our favorites so everyone heard what they wanted. Your duo is awesome!” Lindal S, Rockwall, TX

“Riley and Brian are TOP entertainers! We hosted a small back yard wedding reception and Riley Wilson and his keyboard guy Bryan were fantastic. They read the multi-generation crowd and played to everyone! Dance, easy listening, country, rock, and they took requests! Great musicians.. they made a great evening even better! ” Jody M, Dallas, TX

“Wanted to tell you that you and Riley did a super job playing the other night. A great time was had by all.” Randy B. Mt. Pleasant, TX

“I had never hosted a corporate event before & was nervous about how to pull it off, but Riley Wilson’s professionalism & experience put me at ease from the very beginning. He was right – my guests had a blast and everyone has commented on what a great time they had. Everybody danced & had the time of their lives! I had guests from across the globe at this convention and Think Twice’s choice of music got everyone out of their shell & on the dance floor! Best of all, Riley made me a hero! I would enthusiastically recommend them for any party or event. Thanks a million! “- Lissa C, International Tenant Representation Alliance, Dallas, TX,

“You guys sound great. I can’t believe there are just two of you- you sound like a much bigger group!” Ann Brey, Pan American Allergy Society

“Your performance was perfect…I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I don’t know if you noticed or not, but several of the national tellers were dancing at the back… while you and Bryan played.” Shelley Holley, Festival Coordinator, Frisco Storytelling Festival

“Entertained at my Christmas party last 2 years…Great sound and song selection.. ” Chuck Y, Plano, TX

“Congratulations on the “Think Twice” group’s performance at the Dallas Athletic Club’s Ladies Golf Invitational last September.
