If a city in the middle of serene landscapes sounds familiar to you, or perhaps it’s more of a drawcard, then look no further than the capitol city of Idaho called Boise. With almost a quarter of a million inhabitants Boise has much more to offer than you might think. The music scene is predominantly made up of Jazz, Indie and Musical Theatre with the Gene Harris Jazz Festival, an annual event, drawing crowds from far and wide. The Treefort Music Fest is another highly celebrated event and takes place annually in March.
How about them Boise Ukesters, you may ask? The Boise Ukulele Group (BUG) appears to be the main body in Boise. This group was formed ten years go by Jack Lawson and Earl Mullins, who met through a Hawaiian music bulletin board. Their love for the ukulele and a lack of any type of organization of this sort in Boise led to their creation of BUG. The BUG meets twice a month in separate locations and there are many options on offer. Meetings/jam sessions are always held on the 2nd or 4th Mondays and if you’d like to come prepared, the BUG has all of their music sheets available on their website which is listed below.
