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.

Another great Open Mike

I think everyone had a good time last night at the Open Mike at the pizza shop.  There were some great songs and good performances, including a milestone for our group --  Kay performed a Hawaiian love song in Hawaiian.  Not being a linguist myself, this was really impressive.

Also of note were two folks joining us for the first time, Glenn Gosley and Terry Pitts (from Bartlesville).  Let's all give a big welcome to them.

I hope that the videos the Rex was taking will turn out good for they could be a good addition to our club YouTube Channel.

Lets also give thanks to Rex for the  mike and amp setup and to Cap'n for starting this element of our club's activities.  It takes some effort to do this so recognition is welcomed.

Open mike night

Here is a big thanks to Rex for setting up his equipment for last night's open mike.  I really liked the setup at that end of the room, and the UkeFarm music feed until we started playing was excellent too.

Thanks  again

A concert idea

Now we may not have the skill levels of the concert performers at this particular concert in British Columbia, but we could do something like this -- tie in a concert with our group playing, with a charity.  The charity, and the host facility -- say a church -- have extensive contacts and could bring out a good crowd.

Anyone want to take on this community project?

Thursday's meeting

We had a nice evening at the pizza shop. Tieu showed up with an instrument and played very well -- he is in the class being held at Saied Music. Phillip and his wife 
Sara also showed. Phillip is another of the multi-instrument men who have recently picked up the ukulele and are enjoying the fun. Welcome all.

Social Media is working for us

I just checked our stats and we are now over 26,000 views and counting.

Many thanks to Bill K for setting up the blog.

This, the FaceBook pages, our YouTube channel and the web page are all contributing to our steady growth.

Yes, social media is effective.

Meeting this Thursday

This coming Thursday will be our first meeting in August.

As usual, it is useful to keep things going if everyone has preselected some numbers to play.  If you have one you want to learn, that would be a good choice too.

I see that there are a number of folks being mentioned in our FaceBook pages as newcomers, so please welcome them, one and all.

See you Thursday at the pizza shop.
