Los Romeros

University of Illinois Press

The Romeros arrived in Santa Barbara in August 1957 and lived with the Stoddards. The city and its mission had been established in the eighteenth century by Spanish padres. Celedonio gave his debut recital in the U.S. on June 13, 1958, at the historic Lobero Theatre, and it was a big success. Pepe also performed that year, demonstrating his skill as a flamenco guitarist. Celin was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1959 and spent the first part of 1960 at Ft. Ord taking basic training. The quartet was formed at this time as a result of a family concert at the base and the offer of fellow soldier Jim Lucas to manage the quartet.
