Riff is among several '90s vocal ensembles greatly influenced by classic doo wop and R&B. This New Jersey pop/R&B quintet formed as the Playboys while still in high school, gaining prominence when they sung in Lean on Me. Changing their name to Riff, Kenny Kelly, Anthony Fuller, Dwayne Jones, Steven Capers, and Michael Best signed with SBK and released a self-titled debut. After appearances on The Arsenio Hall Show, The Tonight Show, and Soul Train, the band toured with LL Cool J and Vanilla Ice and then released To Whom It May Concern. ~ John Bush, Rovi
