Festivals! First off, in five days (with the help of Mya-Moe Ukuleles) I arrive in Sydney and then hope over to Cairns, for their Ukelele Festival!!! I’ll be joining Daniel Ho, Victoria Vox, Matt Dahlberg, Brittni Paiva among others in the land down under for some great ukulele playing! I’ve had a chance to work with both Victoria and Matt before and I hope to conjure up some big surprises while we’re all together! I cannot wait to head down there!

Later this year, I’ll also be attending the Milwaukee Ukulele Festival! It will be held on September 24th featuring Lil Rev, Gerald Ross, Rob Bourassa and other amazing performers!

Craig Chee Band News:
The band has been working very hard to complete our album. We have been working with Mo Talaba at both Gung Ho Studio and his own private studio along with David Michael Frank producing the album. Seth Mulvihill will be joining us on keyboards and we will have a couple special guest horn players... it’s turning out to be an amazing project that we are all excited to share with you! We were hoping to finish it before the Australia trip but wanted to make sure we did everything the best we can for this album. It will take an extra month or so but will be very worth it! Keep and eye out for updates!

I am also proud to announce the recent booking of the CCB at this year’s Whiteaker Block Party and Eugene Celebration!
We will be performing on the G-Spot stage for the block party (time slots aren’t set just yet, so keep coming back for more details). For the Celebration we will be performing on the Broadway Stage August 27th in the afternoon and at Luckeys later that night for a repeat performance :) It really means a lot to be asked to play for these great local events... Eugene is definitely my home away from home and I am very honored to be part of this community. The local line ups for these events look amazing... I’m not supposed to announce other acts just yet but definitely look forward to the coming announcements!
