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.

Next Meeting 12th July at 7.30pm

We will be using two books 5 and 9.

We will also be trying out the songs we will be playing at the Littlehampton Ukulele Jam of Jams on the 17th July. We are to play eight songs, four as a performance to everybody then another four with everyone joining in. Jams from all over the county will also be doing this, so there will be lots of participation.

The event runs from 1.00pm till about 7.00pm on the stage by the sea which is at the end of Banjo Road and we will be playing at 3.00pm. We have been asked to make ourselves known 30 minutes before that. Be sure to allow time for parking because although there are two large car parks nearby, they tend to fill up quickly on a sunny Sunday!

We will need to take chairs (or a blanket), music stand, uke and music. Jamming books will be available on the day. You could make a day of it and bring the whole family!
