Ross de Chene Hurricanes

After finishing runner up in the local D-grade table tennis tournament there was only one logical step for Ross De Chene Hurricanes to take...forming a two-piece garage rock'n'roll band. We like to mainly rock, but we also like to mainly roll - but whatever it is that we do you'll be left tapping your feet, humming our tunes and dancing wildly like a squid.
