Risky Business Band / Press

“The Risky Business Band is a quintet from Boston. This was their 100th gig and it shows-they’re seasoned performers with a really solid sound AND they’re all still teenagers!”

“Risky Business Band is made up of four teens from the Boston area who have blended their jazz background with their passion for rock, funk, soul and reggae”

“Francine Coluci, Director of Cancer Support Community, a division of NVNA Foundation, accepts a check from Risky Business Band members (l to r) Myles Sweeney, Alex Sennett and Tyler Cheo who donated proceeds from a recent concert to the non-profit organization. The foundation offers education, support, wellness programs and workshops to people affected by cancer, at no cost to participants.”

“Naturally the band would give back to their school, but why the cancer cause? Because these boys love Bob Marley and his music has quite an influence over them. Marley died of melanoma in 1981. “I’m sure that’s what he would have wanted us to do, cause that’s all he did was give back too,” said bass player Sweeney. All the band members have personal ties to cancer as well; with all three having relatives that have either beat it or passed away because of it. “Cancer is just something that touches everyone,” said Sennett.

“Throw in a few high school boys, some sweet instruments, a heap of musical talent and you’ll get a band doing what they love, trying to help out some local charities. Not only can they rock it out, but they’ve also got heart. ”

“I’ve kept up with RBB through Facebook friends, so I knew that they have performed not once but twice on WATD radio’s “Almost Famous” program. I knew that they have been featured at the Palladium in Worcester and the Orpheum Theater in Foxboro. I was impressed to learn that they won the 2011 Marshfield Fair Battle of the Bands (under their former name, Political Extinction) and that they took Top Band at the Music on Up Showcase at the Hard Rock Café in Boston. ”

“What I didn’t know was how much Risky Business Band has given back to their community. Despite their busy schedule playing in a variety of local clubs and private parties, the boys have donated their time to several worthy organizations.”

“Committed to creating musical fusion, these musicians joined forces in 2011 and have since created a steadily increasing buzz throughout the South Shore and Boston area. Each member has a love and respect for music that translates in their music and on stage. ”

“I was fortunate enough to see three of these young men perform on Friday night at the Friends of Hanover Music fundraiser, “Aloha Hanover.”... And three of the most talented performers from that evening comprise the heart of the Risky Business Band... ”

“Irish Heritage festival draws huge crowd to Adams Corner. Risky Business Band: One of several musical acts on the festival's three stages.”

“Alex Sennett of Risky Business Band rocked the Irish Heritage Festival in Dorchester”

“Political Extinction, 2011 South Shore Battle of the Band winners - have a new name: Risky Business Band. Like them. And hear their amazing tunes on their new page.”
