Local Hero: Bob Pasquarello
Bob Pasquarello is probably the most important single thread that weaves through the southeastern PA and central/southeastern NJ dance communities. He has been a dance organizer, musician, musical leader, musical mentor, tune writer, and promoter and supporter of traditional dance for over 30 years.
Bob has been either the originator or supporter of large bands such as Rum & Onions (Princeton Country Dancers' Halloween orchestra), Fish & Chips (Germantown Country Dancers' ECD orchestra, and many dance and folk-related events. Without his presence and guidance the local dance community would be a poorer place; it might not exist as the vibrant community it is today.
