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.

Weekend meeting -- should we plan one?

At this time we have about four meetings a month, but always on weeknights.  This precludes a fair fraction of the local uke world from participating if they are occupied during the evenings with work or family.

I hosted a meeting a few months ago on a Sunday afternoon and it was not well received.  Maybe it was a lack of extra promotion for the special event, maybe Sunday afternoon was not good, maybe it was just the wrong day -- I don't know, but it was not popular.

But maybe the club should entertain looking at a weekend event again.  The Oklahoma folks meet on a Saturday evening,  The extremely popular Dallas club has club meetings on Tuesday evenings and on Saturdays.  Sometimes  the Saturday meetings are in the afternoon, sometimes in the evening and their "beginners" sessions are on a Saturday morning.  So that suggests that a Saturday could be a popular day.

Give me some feedback.  Does this have any appeal?
