Welcome to Bytown Ukulele Group (BUG)

BUG Jams are for everyone in the Ottawa area who loves playing ukulele! Come out to strum, sing, eat, drink, and be merry! All levels welcome! We have so much fun!


Where:  Clocktower Brew Pub, lower level, 575 Bank Street, Ottawa

When:  3rd Wednesday of every month from 7 to 10 p.m. But come early and join us downstairs for a delicious dinner, snack, or drinks, anytime after 5:30 - meet new friends, share ukulele tips, tricks, noodle…(come and find out what noodling is!)

We bring song binders to the BUG jam for people to share. We also project the words and chords on 3 large screens in the room using OnSong.

Beginners – don’t be shy! Don't wait to come to a jam until you "get better". You'll get lots of help from fellow ukers 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! 

  • For more information about BUG, email me, Sue Rogers, at or call Mark or me at 613-526-4313 

Social media for BUG members:

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. 

BUG Google Groups: We also use BUG Google Group to share ukulele information. If you want to post messages on that site, or receive messages posted by other BUG members, you must register for a Google account.

But all info for BUG members about BUG jams and outings is posted on this website, right here!
