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.

This month we shall be using books 2, 8 and 11 as usual you can request songs on the night.

A few dates for your diaries:

Saturday June 18th, I will give you the exact times later but probably afternoon, we have been asked to participate in the Adur Festival event which is taking place on Southwick Green. We will play a few songs on the green and pop up at other places to entertain the festival crowds.

Saturday/Sunday September 10th/11th, Fourth Sussex Ukulele Festival. The festival begins to come together and news can be found on the festival website.

The warm up gig will be at the Railway Inn Portslade on the evening of 10th Sep and will feature LUSH and the Bandana Collective.

The main festival will take place at The Ropetackle Centre, Shoreham where there will be lots of opportunities to join in and also see some great acts. Next month I will have a list of the workshops on offer.

Thanks go to our sponsors Noah Ukuleles and the local community initiative fund.

Most of you will know that it is my intention to try and recreate Sargent Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album at the festival. It’s not to late to get involved so contact me if you want to take part.

See you on the 12th
