Founding members of the Bend Ukulele Group, Linda and Butch Rasmussen —

Linda Rasmussen said the group has grown steadily since its first gathering of three players a year ago. At one point Tuesday night, at least 26 musicians took part in the jam session.
The group plays at Broken Top Bottle Shop on Tuesday nights from 6:30 to 9 p.m. For information about the group and the upcoming Ukulele University event in July, visit www.ukeu.info.
