Community bands

BUMS Inc supports a number of community bands whose aims are to:

  • foster personal development of singing, playing and performing with the ukulele,
  • promote the ukulele in the community, and
  • have fun.

NUMB BUMS is based on the northside of Brisbane (that’s what the N stands for). We meet at Zillmere Community Hall, 52 Murphy Road Zillmere, on a Monday evenings from 6:45 ’till 9:00 pm.  The number of players in the group typically varies between 12 to 20.

We develop our performance skills playing gigs for charities, aged care, churches and festivals. In the past, we have put together special performances and played at ukulele festivals such as SPRUKE, Newkulele and Sunshine Coast. Unfortunately, in the last couple of years, gigs have been few and far between but perhaps things will pick up soon.

Our practice nights may include a warm-up for our singing voices, an open mic, practice of established and developing songs, a skills workshop and a warm down song.  For more information, check out
