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 March 2017 Jam

Tuesday 14th March 2017 at 7.30pm in the Duke of Wellington

This month we will be launching our new book 14. This is a month earlier than planned thanks to the hard work of Pete "Rock steady" Clark. You have suggested a wide range of songs and we will give a few of them a go.

Download book 14 here.

Keeping this book company will be books 3, 6 and 10.

A couple of events for your diary:

  • On Saturday 22nd April "Uke at the Duke" will be taking over the Foyer of The Ropetackle Arts Centre as part of their ten years celebrations.

    It's going to be a hands on afternoon of ukeing. Starting at 1.30pm Richard Durrant will be demonstrating some of his Ukulele Circuit Training, this will be followed by jams led by the Ukuladies, Pete and Hugh, and a performance by Secret Moonshine, a country group who feature a variety of ukes.

    The Bar will be open with a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks as well as a selection of refreshments. There will also be a raffle.

    I will be sending out some song sheets nearer the time.

  • Finally Sara Spade and the splendid James Hill are playing at Ropetackle on April 12th. Tickets are £18.00 but see my email for a discount code. Book here. Sargeant Peppers Ukulele Band are playing as part of the support.

See you on the 14th March.
