Pepe Romero Jr. was born into a family established in the tradition of the Spanish guitar. Regarded as royalty in the classical guitar world, Pepe’s grandfather, father and uncles have been knighted by the king of Spain for their achievements and excellence in guitar playing. Pepe’s guitars are in great demand by concert guitarists and collectors worldwide. Some fans of his instruments are Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Daniel Ho, Mike Love, and every concertizing member of his family. With Romero Creations, Pepe has applied his expertise and knowledge of the classical guitar to ukuleles. Each is hand crafted in the traditional Spanish method. He approaches them like small classical guitars and builds them to be light and powerful with a full warm tone that can fill a concert hall while played un-amplified.


Founded by Hawaiian slack key recording artist Kamaka Mullen and multi-instrumentalist Brian Witkin, Slack, Key ‘Ohana is known for blending their original island-style compositions and traditional Hawaiian melodies with beautiful surf harmonies and soothing, intricate instrumental arrangements, interweaving the music with stories of Hawaiian culture and history.
