This is most people's first stop. It lists everywhere we'll be playing, with links to the location's web site, maps and more information. We've recently added the Risky Business Perpetual Calendar, which lists all of our shows, as soon as they are booked.
From a Recent Letter:
"I would just like to say that my husband and I saw Risky Business Saturday night for the first time and believe me it will not be the last. You were the best we have ever heard. ... There really wasn't much room to dance, but we did anyway. How can anyone sit still? Anyway i just wanted to let you guys know, you made our weekend"

A collection of fun, foibles and foolishness, collected from the 'net by our resident comic historian (and bass player), Willie. He can't tell all of them to each of you, (although he tries) but you can read them here.
What is Risky Business?
Not just another band, but a group of veteran vocalists and musicians who have entertained audiences in the New York Metropolitan area since 1987. For more than 25 years, the Risky Business philosophy has been to play the music that gets people on the dance floor. That might be a medley of Motown tunes, songs from the disco era, smoking rock from the ’60 and ‘70s, nostalgic sounds from the ‘50s, or even standards by Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. Risky Business does it all!
Keyword -- Experience!
What sets Risky Business apart is experience. We’ve performed on the large stage at The Patchogue Theatre and for the Town of Hempstead’s Fourth of July concert in Point Lookout before more than 20,000 spectators. We’ve performed at all the great dance clubs of days gone by -- Trudy B’s, Savannah’s, Fuzzy’s, Monroe’s, Classic Car Cafe and Reflections -- and we continue to entertain at today’s fine supper clubs like Madison’s in Hauppauge and Puglia’s in Garden City. And our annual schedule always includes private parties like dances, birthday and anniversary celebrations and weddings.
The Risky Business line-up features four fabulous vocalists up front -- three male singers and a female vocalist -- supported by five seasoned musicians playing sax, keyboard, guitar, bass and drums. The individual history of our singers and musicians is filled with extensive performance credentials with wedding bands, rock bands, touring bands and concert bands. Some of us have even performed in venues like the Westbury Music Fair. The members of Risky Business not only know their craft, but love it. We work hard to make every performance a memorable one for our audience.

And About That Name...
Our band’s name derives from the 1983 hit movie, “Risky Business” in which the song, Old Time Rock ‘n’ Roll, was featured.
