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 13th September at 7.30pm

Hi Ukers

Lots of playing and excitement in the week ahead.

The next full meeting of Uke at The Duke is on Tuesday 13th September when we will be using books 13, 9 and 7.

We will be recording our version of Rolling Sideways from book 13, I hope you can remember it from our last meeting. The plan is to record it then send it up to our good friend Rich Huxley of the Hope and Social band who set us the challenge in the first place.

Before then of course we have our festival weekend with the warm up at the Railway Inn, Portslade on Saturday followed by the main event on Sunday 11th at "The Ropetackle", High Street, Shoreham. As well as the jams and workshops I would really appreciate it if you stayed to watch the two main acts of "The Corner Laughers" and Sara Spade.

There are a few places available on the workshops so do email ukeattheduke@outlook.com if you would like to reserve a place.

Full details of the the festival can be found at http://www.ukulelefestivalsussex.co.uk/

Please bring all your family and friends on what promises to be a great day of celebration and appreciation of our lovely instrument.

I look forward to seeing you at both events.
