Who We Are

We’re a happy musical group of Ukulele Friends who meet weekly to play together, and sometimes take ourselves out into the community to share the joy and fun of strumming and singing along. It’s so much fun, the smiles last all week, until the next time we gather!

"How DO you become a member of BUGS?"

That part is simple. You come and check out a singalong night.  If you don’t have a ukulele yet, we’ll help you find one.  After that, you’ll want to buy our 4 unique songbooks, learn a few chords, and show up often enough that you get to know a few people, and they get to know you. Then, you can tell everyone you know that you are one of the BUGS!!! They will all notice there is something different about you anyway. You are HAPPY all the time!!!

We even have beginners groups. And coloured stickers to put on the neck of the ukulele, if you want to make learning really easy. After a while you’ll start to smile, can’t go to bed without your ukulele, and it’s as easy as that!
