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.

Spring is here

Hi, everyone.

This morning with all the storms around us, it looks like Spring is here in Oklahoma.  Dorothy even asked if our safe room was ready (and I assured her it was).

Spring also brings an opportunity to select some special songs to work on.  You can Google "songs about spring" or something like that and get some suggestions.  Some of these are in our Daily Uke books too.

But there are also a wide variety of themes we might look at that match the coming months.  These include Mothers Day, Fathers Day, and the two patriotic days, Memorial Day and Fourth of July.

So if you have anything you want to share, and they are not already in our Resources or the song books, you can send them out by email, or bring some copies to share at our meetings.

Our next meeting is Thursday, April 4 at the NYC pizza shop.

And if you are up to a bit of travel, on Saturday the 6th is the monthly OCTMA meeting, always a nice meeting with new folks to meet.
