Ottawa's Most Compassionate Rock Band!

Helping people, one song at a time!

Let the Party Begin!

Ruckus is an established, four-piece rock/classic rock cover band based in Ottawa. Our goals are simple: 

- to help people escape the grind for a little while, cut loose and have a great time

- to help people in need

We deliver high-energy, danceable rock tunes that get folks up on the dance floor and keep them there. The more fun the crowd is having, the more fun we’re having. With solid vocals, masterful guitar work and a kick-ass rhythm section, Ruckus knows how to raise the roof!

"Funds" Between the Covers!

Over the last several years, Ruckus has helped raise tens of thousands of dollars to support local families facing financial hardships due to illness, to support research for cancer and other illnesses, to promote organ and tissue donation, and to help community youth sports organisations to purchase much-needed equipment, to name just a few examples. It is the generosity of those who came out to the events, as well as of the individuals and businesses who donated prizes, materials, etc. that helped us help others!

So, if ever you see "Live band: Ruckus" posted at your local venue, chances are we're trying to help someone in need. Pop in. You'll have a great time, and you'll be helping yet another great cause!


Ruckus would like to express its heart-felt appreciation to all of the individuals and businesses that have helped us help others over the years; we couldn't have done it without them!

A  HUGE  “Thank you” goes out to:

- George and Son's Upholstery

- The Jam Barn
