EMERGENZA said:- "Melbourne band RUCKUS shows us it’s not just Americans that know how to Honky Tonk.RUCKUS definitely sets themselves apart from the norm, these guys show they’re real professionals. Total command of their instruments, solid song writing, and an understanding of creating a multi media image for the modern music industry"

The name "RUCKUS" evolved from a particularly eventful night experienced by some of the founding band members at an outer suburban venue of questionable repute(hmmm!!).
