This is the blogsite of The Tulsa Ukulele Club, the Route 66 ukulele club. The Tulsa Ukulele Club is a group of musicians who meet regularly to enjoy a wide range of music featuring the ukulele in a prominent position.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

A little bit of nonsence
I have a friend who lives in Austin, a hot bed of musicians. Pop's Bayless has had several groups, including the Asylum Street Band and others. Pop's wrote some uke songs including Let's All Go To Hawaii and the uke standard Flaming Ukulele In The Sky (both of which are in our club song book).
His group, plus several others, met in Austin for a huge jam session one evening.
They are enjoying themselves, and I hope you enjoy it too.
