Each year, the Riskos dedicate several of their live music donations to political events in the local communities. In 2016, they performed for the Ossining Inaugural Celebration and also performed on Election Day at a historical celebration in Chappaqua awaiting the announcement of the new president of the United States. They also perform regularly for the Briarcliff Manor People's Caucus.

On January 1, 2010 Mike, Miriam, Franklin and Larry had the priviledge of being part of the Ossining Community Inauguration at the Joseph G Caputo Community Center. Richard Wishnie led the event as Master Of Ceremonies and many local government officials took their oath of office. It was very exciting to be able to play America the Beautiful on the first day of the New Year in such a patriotic setting. It was really great to be a part of such an exciting community as we looked forward to the new decade.
