8-9:15pm Mondays, The Kings Arms Hotel, Whitecliff Mill Street.
£25 per month by bank transfer, or £6 per session.
We often perform for care homes, pubs, birthdays and more! Get in touch if you'd like to book BUG. Any income from gigs goes towards our T-shirt fund!
A decent tuner costs about £6 on Amazon. Smartphone apps are often free but I generally recommend a clip-on tuner since it will pick up the instrument's vibrations even in a noisy room. This video is good too: (it's great for ear-training):
Buying a uke
I recommend buying new and trying instruments out before you buy. The Southern Ukulele Store in Boscombe has a great range (tell them you're part of a uke group to get a discount), as do Absolute Music in Bournemouth and Harmony Music in Dorchester.
A cheap instrument can be transformed by upgrading the strings: Aquila Nylguts are good.
