Profile in Caller and Cuer Database

Bob Brundage

Bob Brundage was born in Danbury, Connecticut on March 08, 1922 to Gene and Harold Brundage. He grew up as a farm boy in that town. At the age of 12, he played drums in a square dance orchestra organized by his mother around 1933-1934 as a 4-H Club project. It was called The King Street Pioneers, and was well-known throughout western CT and eastern NY state. Bob started calling in 1935 when he was 13 years old, and has been calling squares and contras ever since. Bob helped organize the Connecticut and Western Massachusetts Square Dance Caller Associations in 1952-53. Bob recorded on the Folkcraft and MacGregor Square Dance Record Labels and appeared on National Television on the Arthur Godfrey and Friends Show in 1960. He also conducted Round Dance Classes and taught Square Dancing in the Danbury, Connecticut schools for many years. Shortly after moving to Albuquerque, New Mexico, Bob volunteered his services to the Lloyd Shaw Foundation. He took over the task of cataloging the many periodicals and records that had been donated to the Foundation. Bob is a member of CALLERLAB, and received that organization's Award of Excellence in April 2000. He has been on the N.E.F.F.A. Board of Directors, President of the CT Callers and Teachers Assoc, and Treasurer of the New Mexico Callers Association - just to name a few of his many leadership positions.

To fill a void in the documentation of our square dance history, Bob started a project that has been ongoing for several years. He has traveled all over the country interviewing members of the Sets in Order Societies Hall of Fame, recipients of the CALLERLAB Milestone Award, the Silver Spur and Golden Halo as well as national and regional leaders in thirty-six states and leaders from Canada, England, Australia and New Zealand. On April 27, 2002, at the 44th New England Square and Round Dance Convention in Sturbridge, MA, Bob received CO-OP's prestigious Yankee Clipper Award. The next day, April 28, 2002, he was inducted into the Square Dance Foundation of New England's Hall of Fame. To receive this dual recognition, on the same weekend, is an unprecedented event.
