When Celino Romero joined Los Romeros guitar quartet in 1990, he ushered in the third generation of the group’s esteemed history. Established by Celino’s grandfather, father and uncles in their native Spain, Los Romeros have been performing together since 1960 for audiences worldwide, and have becomes known as “The Royal Family of the Guitar.” Celino was joined 6 years later by his cousin Lito, who stepped in to replace their grandfather. Los Romeros has performed for dignitaries worldwide, including two American Presidents, Pope John Paul II and the King of Spain. In 2007, Los Romeros were granted The Recording Academy's President's Merit Award from the Grammys in honor of their artistic achievements.

In addition to touring with Los Romeros, Celino performs as a soloist in recital and with major orchestras, as well as collaborating in duets with other family members.  He also teaches and gives master classes worldwide.
