Morris Brothers Closure
Vale Morris Brother’s Music Store
After 23 years serving musicians in Brisbane from their store in Stafford, Morris Brothers will close its doors on 30 April. Brothers Mark and Paul have been unable to negotiate an acceptable new lease with their landlord and Mark has decided to retire. Paul will continue providing piano tuning and instrument repair services.
Morris Brothers and BUMS Inc
Morris Brothers Music Store and Brisbane Ukulele Musicians Society have had a symbiotic relationship for over ten years. Morris Brothers have sponsored BUMS at SPRUKE and other events, created pop-up shops at jams and provided a great range of instruments and accessories. BUMS members, particularly on the northside have had access to a wide range of ukuleles, accessories and services.
To mark the end of an era, you are invited to put two dates in your diary.

Ferny Grove Jam Wednesday 19 April
Paul Morris was instrumental (pun intended) in kicking off the Ferny Grove jam with Linda Gough in 2013. This is their ninth year of leading songs on the third Wednesday of the month. Paul plays bass ukulele and accompanies Linda with his inimitable vocals.
Paul will be taking a break from the jam as he establishes a new business structure. He plans to be back soon as he loves performing with Linda and sharing the fun of the ukulele. Linda will continue leading the jam with other bass players.
Paul’s last Ferny Grove jam will be on Wednesday 19th April from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. Paul will bring a ukulele as a door prize for the night and he and Linda will lead us through their songs as usual. We encourage BUMS members and friends and family to come along and thank Paul for his contributions to BUMS and the ukulele community.
No need to book to come to a jam – just turn up. The jam is on at Ferny Grove Bowls, Sports & Community Club, 20 Tramway Street, Ferny Grove. Meals are available from 6.00pm (call 07 3851 1889 to book) and the bar will be open.
Wishing both Pqul and Mark all the best from fellow ukulele players, Nukulele Boom, from across the ditch in New Zealand. May your new season in life be just as fulfulled and exciting.
All the best,
Viti Taylor & Boomers
