Ruff Scales rock out to help kids at The Channon
RUFF Scales is a pub rock band that will have The Channon residents dancing to support their local children's centre.
What started as casual Sunday afternoon jam sessions between a few mates has evolved into one of The Channon's latest musical projects.
With a broad range of influences including Cocker, Creedence, Joplin, Jagger, Clapton and The Clash, Ruff Scales play covers and originals, so expect to be entertained in typical pub-rock style.
The gig is a fundraiser for The Channon Children's Centre.
The beautiful mud-brick building of the centre was built by the community in the early 1980s and has been powered by locals since.
The centre is a small, community-run preschool, so the management committee has developed innovative ways to lower overheads, increase community interaction and raise funds.
Earlier this year, a three-kilowatt solar system was installed with the help of donations from locals. This is helping to lower power bills, and teaches by example the importance of renewable energy.

At the Channon Hall this Saturday from 6.30pm. $10.
