Pepe Romero Jr. is one of the coolest guys I’ve met in all my years on the ‘ukulele scene. His quiet demeanor and quick smile light up a room and makes everyone around seem to tune in to the beauty of the moment. This appreciation of the little things comes through in his instruments and it makes them some of the greatest ‘ukuleles and guitars you can find.
Pepe sent me a link to this video the other day. While in the area for the NAMM trade show, Andrew Kitakis and the guys from Hawai’i Music Supply visited with the Romeros and put together a fantastic video featuring interviews along with gorgeous playing to show off the sound of some of Pepe’s work.
Much of the video is guitar oriented, but watch Pepe Sr.’s playing – it’s absolutely masterful. I was enthralled.
