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.

Something different

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFRwifnhTUY&feature=related

This is a YouTube video of a group doing a number in the home of Phil Morris.  Phil and his business partner build the very special Spanky Banjo Ukes   http://www.spankyukes.com/  and Spanky is the sponsors for the Wahooligans , http://www.thewahooligans.com/   a  group that are the headliner for a couple of the Dallas Uke Festivals concerts in the years past.  For those event, they incorporate Gordon McLeod as part of the group.

Here is Gordon and his wife, Dirje (of the Wahooligans), and Kelly showing how a good banjo uke can cut it in a group.  Jeff has been saying that his banjo uke is well received in his OKC jams and this is proof.

  2. With the Gold Tone uke of Jeff's, my 1928 era Gretch and Blayne's super Spanky, we have the makings of a banjo band.

    Not quite like that of the Heftones Banjo Orchestra, I supect, but noisy in the banjo uke way. .http://www.heftone.com/orchestra/music_box_rag/

    (Brian plays the uke, banjo uke and works at Elderly.)
