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.

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.

I spotted some bargains

I was looking at the FleaMarket site, and in particular the Marketplace section and spotted a fellow selling two nice ukuleles.

One is a Lanakai CK-T koa tenor, packaged in a kit with the gig bag and tuner, asking $85 plus shipping.  Several years ago I had a concert sized version of this particular uke and it was very nice.  A laminate, with a koa veneer, with some bling.  I sold my concert to a fellow in OKC last year (after at least 5 years of ownership) for more than this fellow is asking for his almost new tenor, so I consider this to be a good offer.

The second is a mahogany Pono tenor, model MTDX.  Pono ukes have an excellent reputation, and I have one; it is possibly my most favorite uke.  This offer, with an asking price of $250, is a significant saving over new.  This particular model is, like all Pono ukes, all solid wood.  This particular model is without any bling, which some folks prefer.

So if you are interested in a tenor, either one of these should be very nice.

ps -- I have no involvement with these offers -- they just look pretty attractive for mid range ukes.

  1. I spotted a Lanakai tenor package in Ebay, new, for $99, shipped. Maybe the local merchants can match that.

  2. Bill Dunn has one of these Lanakai Koa pack ukuleles and I gave it a look-over and I am very impressed with what he got for a small financial outlay. He got his via Music123 but it was also available at Musicians Friend, and possibly some local shops. I don't think it is currently available at those shops, or available at the $99/$109 price but if you see it in the future in a special offer, and you want a nice tenor uke at a great price, grab it.
