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.

Lone Star Uke Fest, 2012

Noel has set up a mini-festival for 2012 in Dallas that you might find worthwhile.  This is a shortened version with a jam and open mike session on Friday evening, workshops on Saturday and an evening concert.  (Since the festival location is very close to her shop and a nearby sports bar, one can expect some late Saturday evening jams sessions too.)  The setting she has chosen for 2012 is the City of Dallas Bath House Community Center on White Rock Lake, but because of it's size, there is a limit to the number of folks who can be accommodated.   She tells me that the open reservations are filling up pretty fast, so if you are interested, give Noel a call.

The workshop leaders are well respected -- I personally know both Deb and Pop's and Jim travels all around the country giving his "Play by Ear" workshop sessions.

So if you have the time, you might want to check this out this weekend in June.
