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.

Ukulele Meeting Format Adjustment:

We are going to adjust our ukulele meetings. It will now be Rehearsal/Jam meetings.

The first half of the night will be rehearsal time. We will rehearse songs from the performance list of songs in order to have songs well learned for upcoming performance opportunities.

The second half of the night will be a jam session playing songs from our collection of books or songs brought in by members.

This will give us both old reliable tunes to polish and fresh new songs to experience in an evening.

Thursday the 23rd

In the distant past, we have had, on occasion, a short lesson plan at the start of the meeting.  So if any of you have a subject you would like covered, I'll see if we can come up with a short program to address these issues.  No guarantee, but I'll try.

We will have some time after a warm-up period with some of our standards, to look at some new, interesting songs.  I'll bring one or more but if you have some, bring song sheets to share.

Hope you can make it.

Open Mike Thursday the 16th

We will be having our usual open mike night this coming Thursday so be sure and come that evening.

Sometimes we have a large number of folks at the mike, sometimes just a couple.  So bring along your ukulele even if you are not going to perform in case we do some jamming afterwards.

Thanks to Cap'n for his effort to setup the equipment.  I'm told Rex will have his video camera there too, and with his new video editing gear, all of us are bound to look good and sound great.  I'm also understand that Rex's camera takes off 10 pounds, not adds 10 pounds like some cameras, another PLUS for his recordings.

See you there
