2020

To keep our community safe with current health concerns around Covid-19 and in line with current guidelines from the Federal Government, ALL BUMS official jams are cancelled. These cancellations will be reviewed regularly in line with the latest official recommendations.

As of July 3 the Queensland Government have eased restrictions to Stage 3 and some smaller groups have started playing together.

Currently all BUMS Inc Jams events are being held online in the BUMS Online Facebook Group. This group is for members only. Join BUMS Inc FREE and then you will be invited to join. Here is the DIRECT link to the BUMS Online group page https://www.facebook.com/groups/BUMSmembers/members/

Go to the Announcements and look for the scheduled Live Feed up to seven days before the jam. You can click to get a reminder. NOTE:  You cannot access the online jams unless you are a member of the BUMS Online Facebook Group.

HINT: The jams are scheduled in the BUMS Online Private Facebook Group, however if the live feed drops out (stops, you don’t see anything i.e. its not happening) due to unpredictable technical issues, we start again. If that happens click back to the discussion tab and scroll up and look for the new feed. 

Please stay tuned for further decisions about events after August. #brisbaneukulele

During these unprecedented and challenging times, we encourage you to keep playing, playing an instrument is proven to boost your mood! Please consider supporting our teachers and ukulele community by taking individual lessons or joining an online course. Here are the teachers in our BUMS community.
