Bobby Moderow Jr.
Founding member of the six-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano (Hawai’i’s GRAMMY® ) Award-winning group Maunalua, Bobby Moderow, Jr. is a renowned slack key guitar and falsetto artist. Born and raised on the island of O’ahu, he was a member of the prestigious Honolulu Boy Choir from ages 9 to 12, and wanting to give back to the culture that was so good to him, he got his first guitar at age 17 with the aim of learning slack key guitar.
