We couldn't leave Charlie out. He had such a good time at the Barn when we shot the Barn Dance pilot, we had to find a spot for him in the band. We considered A #1 Roadie, but he showed up one day with a bass.
Charlie Robertson began his calling career at the ripe old age of 12 in Southern California. He mentioned to his mother that he wanted to learn how to call. Charlie's mom contacted a local square dance caller and arranged lessons. Square dancing and square dance calling soon became a huge part of Charlie's life.
Over the last 33 years Charlie has been privileged to travel the world calling dances. He spent several years as a full time traveling caller. Charlie enjoys calling all levels from Basic through C1.
He is known for his energetic style and creative choreography.
Charlie has been a featured recording artist on several square dance record labels. Charlie has recorded many songs that he is very proud of, including the first and only true “Square Dance Rap” song.

Charlie first played the Bass in his late teens/early 20's. He picked it up again to join the Shakedown Band and is thoroughly enjoying the experience.
