Risse has traveled throughout the southeast wowing audiences with the greatest package of multi-talented musicians and entertainers to hit the road. This concept of a 6-piece live dream band is committed to providing superb instrumentation, extraordinary vocals and a repertoire of innovative musical arrangements, merging traditional with originality. Victor Stone formed the band in 1980. Risse never leaves home without class from the front line to the rear. With three dynamic lead vocalists, guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and percussion, Risse compliments a broad range of tastes.

As Risse approaches the third decade of entertaining audiences all over the US, the band has firmly established itself as a premier variety, corporate and wedding band. Members of Risse have opened for such headliners as David Ruffin, Eddie Kendrick, The Supremes, Sawyer Brown, Mothers Finest, Levert, Millie Jackson, McFadden and Whitehead, and Eddie Floyd, to name a few.
