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, possibly 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.

We have been evaluating several alternative sites for our meetings, Watch the blog postings below for the latest meeting place.

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.

Video of the Week - Diane Rubio

There just aren't that many professional uke players.  And, it is very unusual to find a uke player leading a group.  But, since the uke was invented in Hawaii, I guess it could be expected that if you were going to find that combination, it would be in Hawaii and here it is, Diane Rubio and Falling Down Romance.  Some people would argue that Diane Rubio could play a paper clip looking like she does and still draw an audience.  And, they would be right.  But, putting her rather obvious assets aside, if you check the rest of her work on YouTube you will see that she is a very skilled musician.  Enjoy:
