The fourth annual Oceana Ukuleles 4th of July Picnic and Concert

Zac Steimle

Under the typical cloudy NW skies we celebrated the forth of July with music and song! There was great pulled pork sandwiches, fresh salads, and a lot of fantastic food! Sadly, the Southworth Ukulele Strummers couldn't come but we had some greats play for us! Al Tringale, often hailed as the best Slack Key guitarist in the NW blessed our party with some incredible Hawaiian music. 

Another surprise performer was Teddy Randazzo Jr, he wowed us with his skills on the Harp Guitar, Guitar, Ukulele and Bass Ukulele! What a blast!

Caleb Ogden finished up the evening with some fun DJ dance mixes.

Thanks to all our performers and guests! Hope to see you next year!

In her newest recording she was laying down some tracks with the Oceana Guitar and loving the sound! 

This is the 200th Instrument that has been built under the Oceana Ukulele label and it is a wonderfully voiced Parlor Guitar!

Ukulele Bass

Zac Steimle

Back in 2005 my dad encouraged me to build a Ukulele Bass… 9 years later I finally got to it! This one was my Prototype and the one I will play and take to festivals! I really am hooked on this little bass... such a nice sound (the U-Bass sounded alright and that is what kept me back for so long). I wanted to make one that sounded even better and I succeeded! I used parallel bracing and built in an acoustic quality that keeps this bass ahead of the rest! K&K pure bass pickup.

 

The Scalloped Fretboard keeps this Oceana Bass playing silky smooth.

I had to change the pickup on this Uke Bass and a backdoor became necessary.

I added the turtle NW style to keep it at it's best!
