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.

TUC Level One Hawaiian Song Book

After a discussion in our last club meeting I picked out twelve Hawaiian songs from our club's two main song books. I made up a small book of song sheets. The song sheets are the same as in the main books except intros because the main books have no intros for most song. If the main book had an ending I left it the same but most songs don't have endings so I made them up as well. Mostly we can use our main books while the sheets I made are for stage use or until everyone has the main books. The song book is called "TUC Level One Hawaiian Performance Book D3" and is located on the Tulsa Ukulele Club Resources Page.

I also made Play Along Videos of these songs on our Tulsa UkeClub YouTube channel. These Play Along Videos are on a playlist called "Level One Hawaiian Song Book" (if I recall correctly). The videos have the chords and lyrics on the screen so a book isn't even needed.

We have had three requests for our club to perform Hawaiian songs on our ukuleles in the last two years. One party, one group meeting, and one retirement village. We did all three gigs but with minimal players. It would be nice to have many of us up to speed on these songs and have a bigger band to perform the next luau.

Thank you.

  1. ADM 21" Ukulele from Bizarkdeal

    I've been longing for these kinds of ukuleles for years, and I was really excited to receive this ADM 21" Economic Soprano Ukulele Start Pack with Gig bag, Tuner, Brown once and for all! The style has become very popular in recent years, been seen constantly around. I can't wait to use them around! I look forward to using this ukulele for daily use in the future. The set is simple, classy, and they do the business. This is super economical for the price! They were shipped quickly and were well packaged. It looks exactly as pictured and is exactly as described in the listing. Get this product, I highly recommend!
