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.

SPECIAL GUEST INSTRUCTOR

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!

KALEI GAMIAO

With 3 completed nominated albums to his name Kalei Gamiao been at the forefront of today’s ukulele revolution since 2008 when his debut album, “Contemporary Ukulele,” kicked up the demand for performances in the U.S market. After the release of his second album entitled “Redefined” in 2012 a greater demand for more of his music and performances exposed Kalei to hundreds of thousands of ukulele enthusiasts from around the world as he continues to tour countries such as Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, Korea, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and the U.S mainland. When his third album “Merry Ukulele Christmas” released in 2013 as a seasonal project it propelled and broadened Kalei’s repertoire to new levels as many web and social media sites provide instant access for his fans to stay connected to his music and the explosive world-wide popularity of the ukulele. With the release of his 4th latest album “These Moments” in 2016 he has already traveled and performed in different parts of the world to share his passion for music.

As a true ukulele virtuoso he sums it up by saying… “My ukulele expresses every word and emotion. I love to create and share my musical journeys for everyone to enjoy”.
