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.

Social media

This blog was our initial venture into the world of social media to tell folks about the club.  There is a lot of really good information in the Handy Links section off to the right side of the page.  But for more current activity news, Facebook seems to have replaced the blog.  Facebook, the YouTube club channel and our web page that has all our song files and resources augment our exposure too.

So sign up on the Facebook page and keep current.

Thursday, 3 April 2014, Rehearsal/Jam Night.

We will be verifying San Francisco Blues, Side By Side, That's Amore, White Sandy Beaches, and You're Sixteen. If we complete these songs our performance book will be complete and Rehearsal time will be more about practicing the song instead of determining how we want to do them.

The second half of the meeting is the Jam portion and I don't mean strawberry. We have our old song sheets, the blue and yellow Daily Uke Books, or any music members bring in to share as our jam material.

We have had some new ukulele players come to visit and play from distances like Muskogee and Stillwater lately. We are growing and we are developing relationships with other possible ukulele groups. I have hopes for a Oklahoma network of ukulele clubs. Wouldn't that be awesome?
