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!
