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 evening

Well, we had a nice turnout last night at the pizza shop.  I think we all had a good time.

Let's welcome John Nicholas.  John is a guitar teacher at Saied, and while not really too familiar with the uke yet, one can tell that he will be one the talented folks that we can always use to help the newcomers.  He is planning to come to our "Four Strings, Four Fingers, For Fun" evenings in the future as time will allow.

Some of you may find that the music shop in Bartlesville is close to you,  Tom Stevens is giving uke specific lessons at that shop.  Tom brought a couple nice ukes that that shop sells to our meeting last night and I really like the tone of the RipTide mahogany tenor he had with him.  (Tom normally plays a baritone with CGEA tuning strings, giving an overall lower tone than mostukes.).

Tom and Mark are working on a gig at a restaurant in Bartlesville.  When this is finalized, they will let us know and maybe ask some of us to set in during their evening entertainment.  Tom did have a couple evening gigs at the local Dusty Dog Pub last month too.

Next week we will have more ujke opportunities with our regular meeting at the WCD on Tuesday and the open mike night the Cap'n is setting up for Thursday evening at the pizza shop.  Hope you can make it.
