While the music is important, a band's name also gives a group definition and personality.

For the band Ruckus, the name is more than innovative and imaginative. Making a commotion on stage is what they do best.

"When we were looking at names, Ruckus fit the way we were and still are," said Larry Raulerson, one of the band's founders. "We like to have fun and we like the crowd to have fun, too."

Ruckus intends to get raucous and rowdy Friday and Saturday nights when it plays Cliff's at the Beach in Neptune Beach.

Lindsey has been with Ruckus since 1997 and played with several groups, including the short-lived River City Opry. Geuder joined Ruckus last year after relocating from Virginia. Cain, a well-known session player, also came on board around the same time. Wayne Elton is the group's sound technician. …
