We have a great relationship with the Ossining Farmers Market. When the market reopens in the Spring, we head there a few times and play music or bring student performers with us. Sometimes we even bring up some surprise guests like singer Jen Pawlicazk or the Ossining Village Mayor. It is a great place to play music and to grab a healthy snack.
Mike and Miriam were asked to be Master of Ceremonies and play music for Ossining's Down to Earth Markets Food and Fashion Show in the Fall of 2015. This exciting event combined local people with local clothing stores. Their hair and makeup was done by local hair salons and some of the models even carried local fruits and veggies that were in season at the Market. The Riskos really enjoyed playing music to open the show and they had a lot of fun being a part of this truly local event.
The red carpet featured many local models including DJ Johnny G and Village Trustee John Codman.
Even Ossining's Mayor Victoria Gearity was a model on the red carpet.
