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.

Meeting report

Well, I think everyone had a good time last night at the Diner.  We went through a number of the songs in our book, some of which we had not tried before.  Nobody brought new ones to share, but the evening was full anyway.

Let's all give a big welcome to Clint Roberts.  Clint is a native of Hawaii so we will certainly have to polish up on some or our songs with an island flavor.

Wendy showed up with a cast on her right hand but Rex had a shaker she could use to keep us in time.  Rex played his nice banjo uke which also was strong enough to keep the group in time.  

With Rex, Cap't, Clint and myself, we had four males this time, almost equal to the gals -- Mary, Barb, Ellen, Cinde and Wendy.  Come on guys, we are being outshown.

Ellen has set up a date for the video taping at her retirement village, Prairie Rose, as well as a couple other events in which we may want to participate.  More on that later. 

A great evening.  Next up are the normal 2nd and 4th Tuesdays,Sept 11 & 18 at the restaurant and two special events at the Prairie Rose village, Saturdays Sept 8 and 22. (Details on these later.)
