The son of long-time square dancers, Bronc joined his first
square dance class in 1975. Sixteen weeks later, he called his
first tip. Since that time, Bronc has become one of Square
Dance Calling's true globetrotters. He has been featured at
dances, festivals, workshops, resorts and caller schools all
over the world.
Many dancers feel that Bronc's smooth flowing hash calls are
like "floating on air". They might also warn you to watch out
for a twinkle in those big, brown eyes, as Bronc is a fine
hash-calling technician known for inventive and challenging
maneuvers. Most dancers feel Bronc is one of the activity's
finest teachers. His presentation and "real world" approach
to teaching is truly unique.
An accomplished guitarist, mandolin and bass player, Bronc
has played on many square dance releases as well as radio and
TV spots. His first "on stage" experience came at the age of
12 when he started playing in a rock band. Calling eventually
took him away from band gigs. Not wanting to leave music
completely, Bronc apprenticed at several recording studios
learning the ins and outs of recording. Eventually, he was
certified as a recording engineer. He still maintains a studio
in his home.
Bronc has recorded vocals and/or music for several different
square dance labels. He spent 10 years as co-owner and music
producer for New-Beat Productions. Bronc is currently working
on several projects for Sting Productions of London, England
as well as post-production jobs for other square dance and
Bronc and Fia split their time between their home in Lakewood,
Colorado and their winter home in Mission, Texas.
