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 ukeattheduke@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 January 2018 Jam

Tuesday 9th January 2018 at 7.30pm in our new venue: The Sussex Yacht Club, Brighton Road, Shoreham-by-Sea.

Happy New Year to all Ukers
I hope you enjoy your music in 2018

We will be kicking off 2018 using books 2, 11 and 12.

Book 15 is on its way, but if you have any last-minute requests please send them to Pete or me very quickly - you won't have to lead them when they're performed, but if you want to then that is great as well.

Planning for the festival is under way and I hope to have some more news for that soon. As usual we're looking for sponsors first, so if you are working with anyone who may like to help please let me know.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 9th.

Lawrie
