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.

Tulsa Ukulele Club Meeting Tuesday, Aug. 9

Have you always wanted to play a musical instrument but somehow never "connected?" Are you already a musician but want to add something new to your repertoire? Are you an aging guitar player battling arthritis in your hands and shoulders? Are you a ukulele player who would like to visit with other players and take advantage of opportunities to play publicly and privately with other musicians?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions then the Tulsa Ukulele Club may be the place for you. The Tulsa Ukulele Club gives free ukulele instruction at nearly every meeting. We offer a mix of instruction, group play-alongs and individual/small group performance opportunities.

The next meeting is scheduled for 6:30 PM, Tuesday, August 9, 2011 at the Western Country Diner, 1905 South Sheridan, Tulsa, Oklahoma. From 6:30 until approximately 7:00 we will visit, compare notes, and hold a short business meeting. From approximately 7:00 until 7:30 we will conduct one on one individual instruction and offer group playing opportunities. Club President Ralph Kelly will oversee basic instruction and if there is any interest, Bill Kumpe will moderate a discussion covering how to play uke chord patterns on a guitar.

From 7:30 until whenever, we will hold an open mic jam. While the emphasis is always on uke, guitars, harmonicas, banjos, mandolins and just about anything else you can carry in is welcome so long as you it can be played along with a uke. If you don't own a uke yet, a limited number of loaners are usually available at meetings so long as you promise to treat them with respect.

So, come out and join us Tuesday evening. You'll have a good time and meet some nice folks.
