Jim is for the most part retired but recently started calling again once in awhile as a substitute caller if needed. He is looking forward however, to starting a new class in the area as there are none.

We do a lot of research on folk dancing in general and he is a master of "vintage" music and has his own radio show in Nevada City, CA where he plays a wide variety of music. You are free to listen in on KVMR.org. His show is Wednesdays 1 to 4 pm and is called Looking Back.

A home base business in travel keeps both him and his wife, Lessie busy planning group dance trips for square and contra dancers.

I am a "traditional" dance caller. I lead and call contras and squares in what's dubbed the "traditional" style. I am not a member in of Callerlab, and I don't participate in the class orientation of the Modern Western Square Dance organizations. I call in the "all are welcome" style of including a walkthrough of each dance prior to calling it to music. Also, I only work with live music. If the budget is small, I provide the music for my calling by playing fiddle. Though I follow that age old tradition of fiddling and calling, I do use a PA... I started calling in 1984, became a regular caller in San Luis Obispo, CA in 1986. I love calling dances for experienced contra dancers as well as callers for large groups of non-dancers at weddings, parties, and any kind of get-together.

In 1963, Hi Hat Dance Records premiered. Joining Hi Hat Records in 1965, Ernie Kinney would go on to record 130 vocals on the label. In 1976, Ernie and Lani Kinney acquired Hi Hat Square Dance Records (the Round Dance label is split off to another owner). Under the Kinneys, additional record labels were added - Blue Ribbon Records (1976), Elk Records (1984), and DJ Records (1993). The Kinneys created the only-one-of-its-kind records with "karaoke" music on 45-RPM vinyl, with a square dance caller singing on the flip side. The Kinneys also pioneered the vocal recordings of patter for 2-couple squares. Now even groups that couldn't get a whole square could enjoy dancing to the best callers in the world. Ernie Kinney joined Callerlab in 1977, served as its Chairman from 1990-1992 and received the coveted Callerlab Gold Card from Buddy Weaver in 2010.

My purpose in calling dances is to create events that bring people together, build community and teach traditional values and etiquette. I host and call dances for Civil War Balls that are primarily for families and youths. I also call dances for hoedowns, weddings, school programs, living history reenactments and other private events. My focus is on historical dances, so I am not your typical modern-day square dance caller or round dance caller. I combine various quadrilles, circle dances, longways dances along with some polkas and waltzes to create unique historical events.

Doug is available to fill in at square dance clubs in the San Francisco Bay Area. He thoroughly enjoys filling in for fellow callers so he can meet other square dancers. He calls levels from Beginners thru Advanced and especially enjoys teaching beginner classes. Doug's specialty is One-Night-Stands (aka easy-level parties for non-square dancers) for large or small groups at events like birthday or anniversary parties, wedding receptions, school and church fundraisers, fraternity/sorority parties, corporate gatherings and fraternal organization and retirement community events. Most parties are focused on square dancing and line dancing, both of which are Doug's areas of expertise, and he has the ability to generate great enthusiasm. Doug's Sinatra-like voice can bring the evening to a close with relaxing dance tunes from the era of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, so everyone enjoys some soothing slow dancing after an evening of lively action. He has received numerous compliments on his song selection and singing from the heart. Doug can also do "Square Dance Demos", providing the dancers, the music and the calling. He has also been a recording artist with Rawhide Records, and is a member of the Square Dance Callers' Association of Northern California.
