Risky Business

Risky Business is:

Vocals: Ed, Sal, Andrew, Camille
Rich Nicosia - Guitar
Greg - Keyboard
Willie - Bass
Tommy - Drums

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.
The band’s name derives from the 1983 hit movie, “Risky Business” in which the song, Old Time Rock ‘n’ Roll, was featured!
