Welcome to the Tulsa Ukulele Club Website

Welcome to the Tulsa Ukulele Club website. We are a group of people of all ages who enjoy playing the ukulele. We welcome every level of player from beginner to professional. We play a wide variety of music, as diverse as our membership. Right now, if you come to one of our meetings you are going to hear a lot of old time standards, country, folk and blues, posssibly some Gospel, but we are welcome to new influences.

While our emphasis is on ukuleles, we welcome other instruments too. Bring your harmonica or guitar and of course, a kazoo is always welcome.

We are a family oriented organization and encourage the entire family to attend, even the little guys, so long as they do not disrupt the meeting. Watch this site for special announcements for meetings when we will be offering free beginner's ukulele lessons.

Unless stated otherwise, we will be meeting at the NYC Pizza shop, 49th and Harvard on Thursday evenings, starting at 6:30 PM. We have Open Mike nights on the 2nd Thursday and program rehearsals and jam sessions on the other Thursdays.

Thank you for visiting our Blog. You will also find a lot of useful links for songs and instruction material in the Handy Links section on the right side of the page.

We also have a web page that contains a lot of the songs in our song book -- see https://sites.google.com/site/tulsaukuleleclub/

We also have a YouTube channel and a Facebook page ("Tulsa Uke Club").

Please contact us if you have any questions at tulsaukes@gmail.com.

End of December 2014:

The Spotlight Theater show was a success.

Next official meeting will be 8th of January. We don't know if it will be Open Mic or Jam as of yet.

Practice our Fun Songs from the Yellow Book over the break. I'm hoping we get some performances lined up in 2015.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

18th of December performance flyer.

I hope everyone can be a part of our variety performance. We will do group songs and solo songs and duet song and what ever else we desire for about two hours. We will mostly use the River City Ukes 2015 Christmas songbook. Other songs are welcome, like our old standards. Practice up and come to the our meetings and we'll practice together.

NYC PIzza

Anyone notice that our location, the NYC Pizza shop, was selected by the editors of the Tulsa World newspaper as one of the top ten pizza spots in the greater Tulsa area.  That is probably why we like the pizza, and in my case, the loaded veggie pizza.

Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day

We will be taking a break from our normal Thursday meetings on these holidays.  Hope to see everyone on the normal Thursdays.

Holidays and Uke Meetings

No ukulele meeting this Thursday because it's Thanksgiving Day

We will only have December Thursday meetings on the 4th, 11th, and 18th. For Thursday the 25th is Christmas Day.

We won't have a meeting the first Thursday of January 2015 because it's New Years Day.

Thank you.
Happy Holidays.

Performance songs from The Yellow Daily Book

This is a list of older and happier songs I chose from the Yellow Book (YB) to perform mostly at retirement homes. We started practicing this list, up to Let It Be, last meeting. We intend to work on these songs every first Thursday meeting. I have actually performed this list of song in a solo ukulele performance and the retirement home residents loved the songs.
