Well even though the social distancing and lockdown of 2020 meant we had couldn’t jam together, there is a silver lining! After ten months and nineteen BUMS Online Jams we have assembled an extensive library of videos produced by our enthusiastic and talented BUMS members. As a perk for BUMS Inc members only, we are re-editing and posting these videos with the matching song sheets in our private Facebook group – BUMS Online.
This will provide a valuable resource for members to practise the songs at home, and get familiar with the songs before playing along at jams. Our set leaders from the Coorparoo, Westside, Ferny Grove and Northside jams plan to include some of these songs in their jam sets each month, help you to advance your playing skills. You’ll be welcome to come and play the song on stage with us at the jams. We will be posting songs for all levels of players.
Videos with the song sheet are ONLY available in the BUMS Online private Facebook group.
ONLY financial BUMS Inc members are eligible for membership to BUMS Online.
