Risky Business release 'Unfinished Business' album to great acclaim

Around Fingal

Legendary local band, Risky Business have launched their new album in front of a wildly enthusiastic Fingal audience at the Balrothery Heritage Centre.

At a magical night in the Balrothery Heritage Centre Risky Business launched their new album, Unfinished Business to a packed house of invited guests.

Following a glowing introduction from Horslips' Barry Devlin, the band took to the stage to the sound of Endless Art, the classic homage to the world's greatest artists by Irish eighties legends, A-House.

And from the moment they hit the stage, Risky Business had this audience in the palms of their hands.

The set included most of the album's tracks with That's The Way, Troll and the album's title track Unfinished Business being particular stand-outs. Halfway through they were joined on stage by Barry Devlin and Jim Lockhart of Horslips, both of whom have contributed to the album.

The band's time on stages at Electric Picnic and at venues all over Ireland as well as in the UK, Europe and Canada have really honed their stage craft, as they consistently deliver a powerful brand of original and diverse material. The full brass section added colour and texture to a set of great songs.

Unfinished Business has already generated considerable acclaim including ringing endorsements from Cambridge's finest, Stornoway and from Margo Timmins of The Cowboy Junkies.

The CD is now available from the band's Facebook page (www.tinyurl.com/Risky-Fans) as well as a number of local retail and service outlets. It will be available for download from all major online platforms in the coming week.
