They created a private Facebook group exclusively for BUMS Inc members. The BUMS Online Facebook group provides members with a platform to participate in discussions and share performances, reviews, and tutorials, and join our online jams.
To be a member of BUMS Online, you must be a BUMS Inc Financial Member, or an Associate Member who is over 14 years of age.
