Joe “Gramps” Tate is a Sausalito musician who belonged to the legendary Redlegs of the local waterfront. Nowadays he’s busy publishing a ukulele songbook, writing a history of the Redlegs and the Houseboat Wars all the while playing regularly at the No Name Bar, the Sausalito Cruising Club and whatever parties one can get to.








You can see a PDF of “The Last Voyage Of The Redlegs” at this address. There’s also a button to purchase the “Ukulele Baby Songbook.
