Spring and Summer Dates Announced As Rehearsals Continue
ekoostik hookah, entering their 20th year together in 2010, welcomes the youth and creativity of 26-year-old Risko, who is a songwriter, guitarist, and drummer as well. The band has been using a planned six week hiatus to work closely with Risko as he becomes familiar with the large volume of songs in hookah’s repertoire. Full rehearsals will take place at a favorite spot in Columbus, OH prior to the start of hookah’s winter/spring tour schedule.
Risko joined the band onstage during the New Year’s Eve show for crowd pleasing renditions of “Sister Sugar” and “The Ballad of Sam McCully,” with departing member Cliff Starbuck introducing him to fans after the two took turns trading bass riffs throughout “Sister Sugar.” The audience was welcoming and enthusiastic, as Risko showed his musical prowess and ability to fit in perfectly with hookah. Risko’s first full performance with ekoostik hookah will be Thursday, February 18, 2010 at the Clazel Theater in Bowling Green, Ohio.
