Hi folks,
This is an announcement that, due to a number of very challenging situations, we will NOT be holding the Uke U festival next summer (2020). We hope to return for our 10th anniversary the following year, in 2021.

In the meantime, we will focus on our programs for young and old in Central Oregon and beyond, so follow us on Facebook and here on our website. And, if you are in Bend on a Tuesday evening, come by Pappy’s Pizza and join the BUGs for a fun playalong from 6:30 to 8:30.

Til then,
Aloha Nui Loa,
Bob and Karen

Bend Ukulele Group: Meets weekly every Tuesday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Pappy’s Pizza in Bend. Ukulele music will put a smile on your face, guaranteed! You can find the weekly playlist on the BUGs Facebook page.
