Risques Long & Winding Road : Masters of R&B look back on 27 years
By Erin Crowell
When shaking it out on the dance floor, theres a pretty good chance the people surrounding you fall into the same demographic. At a club, 20-somethings challenge the term personal space. Casino? Probably a room full of adults chasing retirement, sporting a touch of gray.
When Risque performs, dont count on knowing which one will be dancing next to you.
When youre in this business so long, youre fortunate enough to get a diverse crowd, said Errol Sanders, bassist for the band Risque.
Since its start in 1983, Risque has been entertaining the Northern Michigan dance scene performing a variety of top 40 and R&B hits that span the decades.
We play a little bit of everything, Sanders said. Well, not everything. We do a little rock and roll, oldies, Motown; and that varies according to where were playing.
