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.

It was a nice morning at the Prairie Rose

We had six folks show up for the video session this morning the the Prairie Rose.   As we have reported, Rex plans to send selected videos to the 2012 Bushman ukulele contest.  The club can send three and individuals can also send three.

Rex came to the village and set up a lot of audio and video equipment and we all owe him a big thanks for the effort, and to Ellen for getting us the room.

Based on the history and viewing the submittals, some of which are quite professional, I don't think we will win a prize, but one never knows.  The main purpose is to get some videos of the group, and club members showing the enjoyment they get from this comparatively simple musical instrument.

You should sign in to the club YouTube channel    Tulsa Ukeclub   and then "subscribe".  This will result in your getting notifications when there are new videos submitted.  This is our channel and we have to thank Rex for doing this work.

We performed some solo numbers as well as a number of group songs and all were recorded.  Rex sill do some editing and put them on the club channel.  He will also send out a notice when this is accomplished.  He expects to have this work done by next weekend..

Thanks to Rex and Ellen for their effort and to the participants for joining in the fun.


Four fingers, four strings, for fun

  1. Let me add my thanks as well. To you, Rex, for the equipment set up and video editing and to you, Ellen, for getting us a room with an audience.

    And thank to you, too, Ralph, for keeping the books updated and the blog posted. And the enthusiasm coming.

    That was good fun!
