Wheller Strummers

The Wheller Strummers

Wheller on the Park is a retirement village on Gympie Road at Chermside opposite the Westfield Shopping complex. A ukulele group has been operating for a couple of years and twelve months ago it approached BUMS to see if there was somebody who could provide some guidance moving forward. John Low, a member of the NUMB BUMS community band who lives in the area, took up the challenge.

The group meets on a Wednesday morning. During 2022 it performed a concert for the retirement village members in July, and a Christmas concert later in the year. At its core are 15 or so members who are learning the challenges and joy of having music in their lives and playing in a band. Because the ukulele’s involved it’s a lot of fun!

Two members have joined BUMS and are regular attendees at the Northside Jam.

    Kia ora, we are a ukulele Group called Nukulele Boom, from Foxton Beach, New Zealand. A group of us will be travelling to Brisbane this year, and wish to connect with other ukulele groups like yourselves. Would this be possible?  Can I have a contact name please.

    Hoping you are keen to connect with our group. 

    Many thanks,

    Viti Taylor
