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.

It was a good evening

Our meeting last Tuesday evening went well with seven participants.  We worked on some ones we really seem to like -- One Paddle-Two Paddle, San Francisco Bay Blues, Bring Me Sunshine, Octopus Garden, Shady Grove, Your Sixteen and a couple new ones including Hasagawa General Store, Johnny Be Goode, Bye Bye Love.

We have a lot of female voices in the group so if they keys in the song sheets are not good for your voice, let me know and we can revise the sheet with a new key.  There is  nothing magic about the song key -- we don't have to do it just like the original, or in a easy to play key like C (but don't ask me to change to E please -- not a good one for the uke).

Our next meeting is June 12th.  Hope your schedule allows you to attend.

  1. I'd like to attend the June 12 meeting. It will be my first. The calendar says that the meeting will be at "the WCD", but doesn't say what that is, and the map link goes to a Google Map of the US. Not particularly helpful.

    What is the WCD, and where is it located?

  2. We meet at the Western Country Diner at 19th and Sheridan in Tulsa. We gather about 6:30 for some snacks, conversation and any questions on playing, at about 7PM we start our jam sessions. We have a club book with a lot of songs, but participants frequently bring new numbers to share. So if you have any favorites, bring them along.

    Naturally most folks bring ukes, including banjo ukes, but sometimes we have a guitar a mandolin or a percussion instrument.

    See you on Tuesday
