Nate Bliss
 Square Dance Caller
 
ID: 25
Nate Bliss

Nate began calling while he was a charter member of the Hickam Promenaders, during his first tour in the U.S. Air Force at Hickam AFB, Hawaii. The club caller at the time was Herb Egender who was being transferred to the Pentagon. Five members attended three calling lessons and Nate was elected simply because everyone else backed out. So with three lessons, a handful of records and a $90 "Califone" PA set, Nate started his "career" as a square dance caller. In 1964 he transferred to California and continued calling even though he was cross training into fighter aircraft (first the F-104 and then the F-105). Nate's attributes include a very melodious, bass voice of which he has received much recognition. A recording artist for over 30 years, Nate recorded many square dance singing call records on six square dance record labels. A nationwide radio commercial, "A Country Barbecue", that he recorded for the Beef Council was really a special treat for him. Besides extensive calling on the West Coast, Nate enjoyed a few tours through the East Coast as well as Thailand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Germany and Denmark. He also taught for an equestrian club in which the horses knew the routine better than the riders, and a class for the blind at the Braille Institute where he learned, "you can't have too many speakers when calling for the blind". He was also a resident caller in R.V. Parks in Arizona, Colorado and Texas. Nate passed away on November 6, 2002.
