Northside Jam- Tuesday 22 May

We  are changing up the northside event in May with a special- one night only- Jam and Free Workshop.

This is our last jam for BUMS birthday month of May so we are partying hard!

Grab your uke and bring some friends for a ukin’ lively time. All chords & lyrics projected on screen, so no need for books or printing!

 

BEGINNERS CLASS FROM 6:30PM. If you have just bought a uke or new to playing, learn some important chords to get you jam ready!

JAM from 7:00PM with Peter Grace, and Andrew Hunt.

FREE WORKSHOP- JOHNNY CASH AS YOU NEVER KNEW HIM from 8:15PM

The man in black, Johnny Cash, had a significant impact on the country music scene, but he in turn was influenced by others. So this is not yet another trotting out of Folsom Prison Blues, I Walk the Line and Ring of Fire! Oh, no – it’s is an unheralded side of Johnny Cash, an excursion into a different yet familiar world.

Direct from a glittering premiere at the 2018 Mountview Winery Autumn Ukulele Festival, Peter Ransom will present this unique program of great music and fascinating but useless trivia at BUMS Northside on May 22, 2018. Everyone is invited to be part of it, playing and singing and perhaps performing with the previously-unheard of Johnny Cash Chorale (in true Northside/Tony Richardson fashion, the Chorale will be formed on the night).

If you’re not totally at ease with this focus on J. Cash, be assured it doesn’t go on all evening and it’s not a grinding look at the rough stuff in his life. It runs for about 45 minutes and it’s fun.

VENUE: Northern Suburbs Bowls Club. 175 Edinburgh Castle Rd, Wavell Heights.
TIME: Beginners Class at 6:30 pm.  Jam starts 7:00 pm.
COST: BUMS Inc members FREE; and visitors $5. Includes Beginners Class and ‘Johnny Cash As You Never Knew Him’.

In tribute to Johnny Cash wear your best ‘Man in Black’ gear …… there will be a prize!

Lucky Door Prizes – it’s BUMS birthday but the goodies are for you.

Bring some change for our special “Man in Black” Raffle.

* A Johnny Cash for Ukulele Songbook,
* Black strap
* Black tuner

TICKETS $2 OR 3 for $5.

Thanks to our sponsors Binary Music for helping us get this pack together
