The Big Uke Jam is back for 2020! Join the BUMS for our biggest jam of the month. Our MC for February is Max Borchardt. Joining Max are our set leaders Ian Phillips, Spare Parts and Adrian Board. Please arrive early to tune up.

Beginners and new players come for the introductory class at 6:30 pm before the Big Jam starts. You’ll learn some jam survival tips and useful chords. Jam songs range from simple chords (for beginners and limbering up!) to more challenging chords and strumming for the more experienced.
