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.

February is here

February is here and we have a pretty full schedule for this short month.  Our regular Tuesday evening meetings at the Western Country Diner is on the 12th and 26th.  Our new Thursday evening meetings are at the NYC Pizza on the 7th and 21st.

Since the major Hallmark Card holiday this month is Valentine's Day, let's keep with the love song theme -- love found, in love, falling out of love, maybe even something like Banks of the Ohio, or some novelty tunes would work too.

We'll try some of the songs in the Beloff Daily Ukulele books, which are good since they have the melody line as well as the chords, all in a uke friendly key and arrangement.  If you want to work on any of these songs, let us know and we can put them in our plans.
