YOUR UKULELE HOSTS

Craig and Sarah discovered a similar passion and work ethic and as of September, 2015 are now married! They have made an incredible splash in the ‘ukulele scene with their complementing styles and vocal harmonies. Craig and Sarah have been truly blown away by the support of Kanile‘a ‘Ukuleles (at festivals, music events and even with helping put music programs back into schools!) and have been amazed by how their custom instruments completely match the tones and sounds that they try to achieve.

THIS YEAR WE WILL BE JOINED BY TWO SPECIAL GUESTS!

MILO FULTZ

With an insatiable urge to explore new and old sounds, Milo Fultz strives to work with as many styles and personalities as he can handle. From big bands and small jazz ensembles to pit orchestras and classical ensembles, blues, rock, funk, and soul groups to singer/songwriters, ukulele bands, and melodica duos, he finds joy in the variety and loves sharing every minute of it. Milo has performed all across North America, including the St. Johns Blues Festival in the Virgin Islands, the Montreal Jazz Festival, and the International Blues Competition in Tennessee. He also is an active teacher, maintaining a private studio where he teaches upright and electric bass and tutors general music theory and ear training, and collaborates with schools to assist students and give lessons. Milo is a very familiar face to ‘Ukulele cruise, as this is his 4th time joining Craig Chee & Sarah Maisel. He will be teaching ‘Ukulele Bass and jamming with every player on board!

NEAL CHIN

Born and raised on Maui, Neal Chin has been playing the ʻukulele for sixteen years and teaching for fifteen. He moved to Honolulu, HI after High School to continue his teaching and performing career. Along with the teachers at the ‘ukulele school ‘Ukulele Hale, Neal’s students performed throughout the islands at events such as volunteering for the Shriners Hospital for Children, The ʻUkulele Picnic of Hawaiʻi and the Hawaiʻi Book and Music Festival. Neal’s students have also competed and placed in ʻukulele competitions, such as the Duke’s ʻUkes Contest.

Neal has performed with over fifty musicians and acts, including Benny Chong, Erika Elona, David Kamakahi, Illisit, and Steven Inglis. Neal has credits on many recordings, including the Nā Hōkū Hanohano award winning album, The Akira Project. He is also a prolific songwriter. During his time in Honolulu he received his A.S. in Music Business from the Honolulu Community College

Neal now resides in Seattle, Washington continuing his career performing, teaching, and recording. His latest album ‘Ukulele Paintings has been nominated for the Nā Hōkū Hanohano award.
