We started off as Uke at the Duke in January 2011 in response to a request to run an evening jam. The Worthing jam known as Wukulele (which has now become Lancing Ukulele Village Club) was our model and we remain close to our sister jam which is a Sunday lunchtime event. Many ukulele players attend both jams. In 2018 we became Quayside Ukes.

Quayside Ukes has its own songbooks and invites players to submit their favourites for inclusion, songs range from traditional to punk classics, there are even a few originals.

The jam meets at “The Sussex Yacht Club”, 85/89 Brighton Road, Shoreham-by-Sea, BN43 6RF on the second Tuesday of each month 7.30pm till 9.30pm.

There is a mini jam on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the same time and venue.

Occasional away fixtures are played in local venues and the jam organises its own festival in September of each year at The Ropetackle Arts Centre. Many groups have formed out of the jam.

All abilities are welcome. Just come along, or if you want more information email quaysideukes@outlook.com

Jams are led by many players and are an independent non-profit collective. There is no charge for attending our jams and no formalities, just turn up and play with us.

Our October 2018 Jam

Tuesday 9th October 2018 at 7.30pm in The Sussex Yacht Club, Brighton Road, Shoreham-by-Sea.

We will be using books 10, 11 and 16.

New book 16 is available, click here to download. If you have trouble using this link, please try this alternative link which will open the pdf file on a preview page, you then need to click the 'Download' link on the preview page. (If you find the alternative link works better for you, please let Keith know and he will provide alternative links for all the songbooks.)

We will be introducing the new book 16 over the next two or three meetings, thanks to Pete for his hard work compiling the book.

There's an opportunity we may join up with the other local Uke Jams for a bumper Christmas jam at the Railway Inn in Portslade on 20th December. More details will appear on the Facebook page and  the next emails.

Best wishes,

Lawrie
