RUCKUS, one of Australias PREMIER Country Bands having won amongst other things
"Coca Cola" battle Tamworth 2009
"Tooheys" battle Tamworth 2008 as well as "Golden Guitar" Finalists
"West Leagues/Rural Press" battle Tamworth 2007
RUCKUS is the only band to have taken out all three and now look foward to another great year.
Our band evolved over 7 years ago . Founding member and guitarist, Mick Abrey had previously played in bands with Bazza Tiplady(bass) and Craig Nicholls(drums) along with Roland Kretschmer on guitar and helping out on fiddle the very talented Penelope Somerville, they will have you kickin' up ya heels. The current line-up has been solidly performing their material to a growing army of "Ruckettes" whose support has elevated the bands reputation way beyond our current epicenter - Melbourne and outer regions!!! Our material features an eclectic mix of southern rock and country with a growing list of "home-made" originals.
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!!).
Calling all RUCKETTES!
THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO STAND AND BE COUNTED!
