BUG Jams are for everyone who loves playing ukulele! Join us to strum, sing, and be merry! All skill levels welcome! Children who play uke are very welcome to participate with a parent although songs often have adult themes. We have so much fun!



WHEN:  3rd Wednesday of every month from 7 to 8:30 p.m. You can join in via Zoom anytime after 6:45 p.m. to enjoy chatting with uke friends and make sure your settings are working well.

WHERE:  no BUG Jams at the Clocktower Brew Pub until further notice. Instead, we'll be doing online BUG PyJAMa Jams using Zoom! For details about how to join in to our BUG Jam, go to the BUG JAMS & EVENTS page and select the link for the next jam.

Beginners - don't be shy! Don't wait to join us in a jam until you "get better". We'll share tips with you and even though you might not be able to keep up with everything right at the beginning, you'll still be able to belt out the songs, and you'll catch on quickly to the chords with practice. We suggest that you start becoming familiar with chords such as C, C7, F, G, G7, D, D7, B flat, A, Am, A7, Em, E7 to maximize your experience. An electronic chromatic tuner is also an invaluable purchase!

BUG Facebook: We post events on our Facebook page that BUGs might be interested in, and members use it to communicate, post uke videos they've enjoyed, and all sorts of other uke-related info of interest to Ottawa ukers. You should join - it's really fun to communicate with other BUG members!
