What we're about

The Tampa Bay Ukulele Society (TBUS) was founded in 2009. With over 3000 members we are the largest and most active ukulele club in the world.

We hold events throughout the year including open mic nights, jams, workshops, concerts and 4 annual festivals including The Tampa Bay Ukulele Getaway (http://www.tampabayukulele.com/?fbclid=IwAR2AgLF9di_CRwsAdp9XeTTQ9mCmt4a7DN2Yxvs9v7AHQjcTumfQexCa4fM) .

Our mission is to provide entertainment, education and community service opportunities for our members. Through our TBUS Cares (http://www.tbuscares.org/?fbclid=IwAR0W5x9fOAQ2aVdeVCSu4C6_9t9FCvNQRFiPVrCx-MV5uH4p-VApPVAzQEA) program we have made donations to over a dozen charities, donated ukuleles to Libraries and Schools, and donated the time of our members to teach beginner ukulele workshop programs at libraries in Hillsborough, Pasco, Hernando and Pinellas Counties.
