'LOVE THIS COUNTRY' The single, entered the Australian top 40 Country charts at No. 26 last Jan and climbed up the charts. A VERY BIG thankyou to everyone who has supported us and the radio stations who play our music. We love you.
A LITTLE NOT SO GREAT NEWS. Craig, Craigy poo, Drummer boy. Our good friend and beat master for the last five years has become ill. His illness will, at the moment, not allow him to keep up the demands of being a drummer and he has decided to step aside so he can concentrate on his wellbeing and give RUCKUS the opportunity to move foward. Craigs contribution, especially on our latest CD has been emmence and we all hope he will get over the illness which has been thrust upon him as soon as possible.
BANGO!!! Mick, Bazza and Roly will be smackin' out the tunes at a new venue. Well not new but we haven't been here for six years. The Grand hotel in Warrandyte is the place to be to finish out your working week. Friday night 31th July it's on for young and old to let these guys know how much fun we can have.
