RUCKUS is a high energy, kick RRRrrrrsss, award winning 5 piece country southern rock outfit. The band has developed a strong loyal following over the previous 3 yrs. with their blistering live performances and their easygoing and approachable manner off stage.

The bands energetic live performances are drawn from over 100 songs Their debut self titled CD comprises 3 mighty “Aussie”country originals and 4 killer southern rock covers that show the bands versatility. Their 2nd CD “THE OTHER SIDE” Which was released in Tamworth 2007 is another step forward for RUCKUS. It consists of 12 songs, 7 of these penned by the band.
It shows a softer side to the band with a couple ballads written after the unfortunate passing of parents of band members, 4 of whom passed away in the previous 2 years, as well as a haunting rendition of the Elvis song “In the Ghetto” It also shows a humorous and lighter side with “Devil went to the pub” and the Neil Young song “Get back to the Country” which features Sandie on JewsHarp. There is a couple of ‘in your face’ out there, instrumentals written by Marcy which awarded her 2 Golden Fiddle Awards in Tamworth as well as the normal country rockin’ songs RUCKUS have built their reputation playing.
RUCKUS have also recently signed off on a deal with Australias premier truck builders FREIGHTLINER in a sponsorship deal which has allowed them, with the help of TRUCKIN’LIFE magazine, to put on the front cover of the Feb. issue of Truckin’ Life, 10 of the bands original songs.

RUCKUS have performed all around Victoria, Tasmania and Southern N.S.W. as well as Tamworth. Festivals, rodeos and B&S balls and truck shows.
In the next 12 mths. RUCKUS intend to obtain promotional and managerial sponsorship to allow the production and release of video clips to support their original compositions and the release of their 2nd CD.
