BUMS has been invited to join EveryOneBand, the biggest band and largest interactive recording project ever! This is a fundraiser for the Australian Music Charity, Support Act.
This will be a great project for BUMS to record as a group.
Check out the Launch Video here!
Who else is in the band? Everyone from Jimmy Barnes to Kasey Chambers, from The Baby Animals to Midnight Oil. More than 1200 people so far! Check out www.everyoneband.com to see a full list of band members.
BUMS will record ourselves playing along with our BUMS band leader to the original song “Stand By You”. Ukulele only- no vocals. We then send in our audio file. When EveryOneBand has received everyone’s files and mixed the song, the single will be released with 100% of all record royalties and profits going to Support Act. Due sometime in May 2018.
BUMS Inc is recording on
WEDNESDAY 28 MARCH

HOW TO TAKE PART
2. Join EveryOneBand
Even though our recording will be of all BUMS playing together jam style– each player needs to join EveryOneBand individually, so you can see your own name on the EveryOneBand members list and agree to the terms & conditions.
Join as yourself and enter Brisbane Ukulele Musicians Society as your band. If you are sending an additional recording of yourself (singing or playing another instrument) with another band add that band as well. Joining is free, quick and easy.
Once you have joined the band you can download backing tracks to practice to. Although there is a uke chart of the song ‘Stand By You’ available we want you to download the BUMS formatted ‘Stand By You’ song sheet
3. DOWNLOAD the BUMS song sheet of Stand By You
This is the one we’ll be using on recording night. It’ll look more familiar if you’re a regular jam player!
4. Practice the song”Stand By You” with the backing track.
5. Bring your Uke to Coorparoo Bowls Club, Wednesday 28 March 7 PM and be ready to record
There will be a run through of “Stand By You” at Ferny Grove and Northside Jams. We’ll also have a few rehearsals on the night before we commence the recording session.
You’ll be able to tell the kids and grandkids that you’re in a band with Barnesy, Paul Kelly and The Oils, it’s the biggest band ever, you’ve got a #1 hit – and a ‘Gold’ award to prove it!
The only rule of EveryOneBand is that no one gets a free record. So we all have to buy, download and/or stream the track as much as possible – and get our friends and family to as well! That’s how we’ll top the charts, go gold – and most importantly, raise money for Support Act.
Pre-order your single or download from the EveryOneBand store – each one counts towards the chart position and gold target. There is also t-shirts, etc. for sale! 100% of all recording royalties and Merchandising profit goes to Support Act, the Australian Music Charity. Buy a T-shirts and wear it to the recording!
Tell your band members and uke friends and come be a part of something epic and unique – the biggest band ever.
