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 2016 Jam

Tuesday 11th October at 7.30pm in the Duke of Wellington

Hi Uke at the Duke Members

Our next meeting is on 11th October when we will be finishing off our book 13 with support from books 2 and 11. I think book 13 has gone down really well so far with only a few blips, so I am sure we will finish it with style.

Last month you remember we played Rolling Sideways for Rich Huxley of Hope and Social fame. Well they are playing at the Ropetackle on Saturday 5th November and would like us to play in the foyer before the performance.  We can play a few favorites and as a reward you can buy a reduced ticket for the show for just £8.00.

If you just want to come along and play at the beginning that will be fine, please come along to the Ropetackle at 7pm. Be good if you could let me know if you are interested.

If you haven't seen the video it's a bit dark, but you can see it below:

Thinking ahead to next spring it would appear that many of us have tents, caravans, motorhomes and such like so we are thinking of arranging a weekend away with uke playing and general merriment, if this appeals please let Jo or me know.

See you at the jam
