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.

December activities

We have three planned club activities this month.

Thursday, Dec 5 will be a regular club meeting with time allowed for some instruction, playing the songs already in our song books* and, if anyone wants to do it, share some new songs with the group.

Thursday Dec 12 will be an Open Mike night.  As usual, folks will do up to three songs, but if we still have some time before the pizza shop closes, additional songs can be presented.  Cap'n does a lot of work to get this setup, so come out, even if it as just part of the audience.

Thursday Dec 19 will be our last meeting this month and we will have a low key Christmas party theme.  Cap'n will set up the mike and PA system for those who want to share their seasonal songs and we can do some group sing-a-longs too.  More details later.  But please put this date on your calendar -- it should be a fun evening to cap off a good year.


*  Some folks might like to put the song sheets, now in Word and PDF format in our resource section of the web  https://sites.google.com/site/tulsaukuleleclub/   into a tablet and bring the tablet to our events, not a ring binder.  If you do this, I suggest you use your word processor to reformat the song sheet so that you don't have to swipe back and forth between the sheets.  To keep the song sheets to two pages, the song sheet is probably formatted to require you to go back and forth to the chorus.  If you reformat the sheet -- for your purposes -- so that the chorus is repeated where necessary, yoiu can just swipe down the song and not have to go back and forth.  This might make your use of a tablet easier than staying with the existing song sheet format.
