We have a very special night for the October Northside Jam. Along with our regular jam sessions, we have a special repeat performance of BUMS Supergroup direct from Newkulele Festival. Yes it’s the fifth Tuesday of October rather than our regular fourth Tuesday, so it really is an extraordinary night!
The BFG (BUMS Festival Group) got together to perform at Newkulele 2018. They’ve created a Uke Opera, maybe the first ever! A modern-day Romeo and Juliet story of eleven songs woven together by a narrator. It’s a tale full of emotion. Love, frustration, anger, craziness, sorrow, joy, and violence, how will it all end? Will our hero and heroine end up like the tragic Shakespearean couple? What has the Goodwill Bridge got to do with it all? Read more about the BFG here.
This is the only other performance of the Uke Opera…ever… so if you didn’t get to Newkulele Festival don’t miss it!
BEGINNERS CLASS FROM 6:30pm. If you have just bought a uke or new to playing, learn some important chords to get you jam ready!
Jam starts 7:00pm- First jam session, BFG Uke Opera, then final jam session.
VENUE: Northern Suburbs Bowls Club. 175 Edinburgh Castle Rd, Wavell Heights.
TIME: Beginners Class at 6:30 pm. Jam starts 7:00 pm.

The next Northside Jam is Tuesday 27 November, returning back to our regular night on the fourth Tuesday of the month.
Most of our songs come from the Internet. Visit our Ukulele Music (in the Ukulele Info menu) for links to Richard G’s songsheets, Bytown songbooks, and many more. The Bytown slow jam songbooks are great for beginners.
