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.

June 24 Sing-A-Long

I hope everyone has Sunday evening, June 24 open so that they can go to the Synagogue at 17th and Peoria for their annual folk song sing-a-long.  This year's theme will be on Woody Guthrie's songs.  We can expect the program will have about 24 songs, some of which will be Guthrie's.  Here I am going to guess -- Oklahoma Hills and This Land Is Your Land (maybe all 7 verses too, but probably not Union Maid.

This is not a Jewish promotion, just a great community music program that the Synagogue puts on each year.  Hundreds will be there to participate, so it is wise to get there early to get a good seat.

It starts promptly at 6:45.  Parking is sparse, so that is another incentive to get there early.

This will be my 4th concert and based on this history I can guarantee that you will enjoy the evening.
