Our BUMS Community Bands are very busy in the holiday season. All of our bands are very active in the community, sharing the joy of playing music together and the uke love. If you’d like a shot of Christmas spirit or just love a good old sing-a-long of your favourite Christmas songs come out to one of these events, better still bring some friends and family with you,  we’d love to see you there!

Share your pics and videos on social media and hashtag them #brisukes and make them public so we can share them.
