Risse could not have done a better job! They were absolutely FABULOUS! So professional and beyond talented. Every person at the wedding (young and old) raved over how amazing they were. Dance floor was packed the entire night. Jaisun was so easy to work with and very flexible. Would book them again in a heartbeat!

Jaisun and the entire Risse band were incredibly easy to work with – great communicators prior to the event and really flexible on the day of. They are also very talented musicians and Jaisun, the band leader, has a gorgeous voice and can sing a wide variety of musical genres really well. I loved her!

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.  Jaisun is a former performing member of Martha Reeves’ Vandellas and The World Famous Platters. The presentation of music is customized for each event. The band’s versatility allows it to switch gears at any given moment, depending on the mood of the room. The basic set begins low-key, lowest volume, with standards or beach and oldies, or right to the heart of the party, whatever is appropriate, Risse delivers. Each song is especially chosen for a proven audience response. “A Party’s Not A Party Without The Risse Band”.
