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.

Revised Club Core Song Book

After about a year working with the collection of song sheets that have been gathered, some duplicates (in different keys and different verses), some with errors and with a realization that some of the collection does not match our club members choices of material, I have pulled together a much smaller selection of songs and generated a new song book collection.

It currently has 38 songs, but no doubt will grow in time.  But it is a start for our group to polish some songs so that we can be proud of our performances, both at the jams as well as any future performances at places like retirement villages, the Spotlight Theater or other similar locations.

I strongly suggest you make up a new ring binder with just these songs to eliminate confusion at our jam sessions.

We needed some Internet access and control, so Google Drive has been selected to store the song sheets.  The collection is located in Google Drive so that you can view and print out the song sheets on your own (or have some printing shop like Staples or the UPS store print them for you).  If you want the updated book, let me know and I can add you to the approved access list.
