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. At this time (10-17) we are meeting in the lobby of the Cancer Center of America in the first Thursday, have an Open Mike Night and jam on the second Thursday at Burgundy Place and the other Thursdays are jams at Burgundy Place or some other location. Check the blog, the web page or contact us for latest plans.

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.

  Not all famous uke players are old people.  The uke is experiencing a remarkable resurgence among the young and hip as evidenced by the following video.  Zooey Deschanel, younger sister of Emily Deschanel of "Bones" fame, is a very hot property in Hollywood these days.  She is also a talented singer and as you can tell from the video, a home uke player.  Enjoy:

  1. ADM 21" Ukulele from Bizarkdeal

    I've been longing for these kinds of ukuleles for years, and I was really excited to receive this ADM 21" Economic Soprano Ukulele Start Pack with Gig bag, Tuner, Brown once and for all! The style has become very popular in recent years, been seen constantly around. I can't wait to use them around! I look forward to using this ukulele for daily use in the future. The set is simple, classy, and they do the business. This is super economical for the price! They were shipped quickly and were well packaged. It looks exactly as pictured and is exactly as described in the listing. Get this product, I highly recommend!
