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.

Our Next Meeting is Aug. 23

Our next meeting is August 23 and it will be at the Western Country Diner, the same location as on the 9th.

This location has some clear advantages over our previous site and Bill Kumpe has arranged for our having this venue available to us for the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month.  Because of other groups using this restaurant, we probably won't have any date flexibility for things like holidays, but on balance I think we all agree that this is a good spot for us.

Thanks to Bill for setting this up.

I went to Braum's and cancelled all our future dates with them (and they did have fixed the double booking problem by reserving the room through December) and I thanked them for their support over the past year or so that I have used that location.

So you can count on the WCD for our future events, starting at 6:30 for some snacks, socializing followed by some program - instruction, circle jam, open mike or whatever we want to do.

Four fingers, four strings, for fun.   Keep strumming.
