Join the BUMS for our biggest jam of the month.
Songs range from simple chords for beginners (and to limber up!) to more challenging chords and strumming for the more experienced. Beginners and new players come for the introductory class at 6:30 pm before the Big Jam starts. You’ll learn some jam survival tips and useful chords. Please arrive early to tune up.
This is the first round of the Guitar Brothers Sprukestar Quest . It’s an open mic contest and our first two acts, The Ukey Beats (Steve Sandilands & Darrell Reeves) and Lilly (Lillyarna Clark), are performing after the first break.
Every audience member gets the opportunity to vote for the act they felt was the most entertaining!
The winner goes through to the April decider round at the Northside Jam. There’s great prizes and bragging rights at stake so we need you all to come, cheer the acts on… and vote!
