Summer’s almost over, but there’s still time enough for one more trip to the beach for some sun, tropical cocktails, and tunes played on a ukulele.
This ukulele giveaway, sponsored by Kala Ukuleles and Dunlop, adds a bit of twistedness to the typical uke. These instruments were hand-painted by San Francisco based artist “Dirty” Donny Gillies, who is widely known for his work in the rock, punk and metal music realms, designing album covers, show posters and band merchandise for the likes of The Melvins, Queens Of The Stone Age, and Metallica, among many others. Dirty (as I like to call him) painted two Kala Solid Acacia Ukuleles, each of which will go to one lucky winner. And Dunlop will send a box of brand new Dunlop Ukulele Strings to each winner.
