Your Callers & DJs

Diana Fanello 💃

Diana’s first passion has always been in music. She’s been learning, playing, and collecting since her teen years, when she also frequented dance clubs and took up square dancing with her family.

After some years off to raise her own family, she returned to the world of squares in 2012 and a few years later, started to call square dancing. As a life-long teacher, Diana has a particular love of introducing children to dance. As a music aficionado with over ten thousand songs in her collection, becoming a DJ as well was a natural move

Adam Fanello 🕺

Adam discovered his latent dance skills in the early 2000’s. Combined with his passion for sharing knowledge, he immediately took to assisting in square dance classes as an “angel” dancer. That has since led to learning to lead the class as a square dance caller.

While his first love is the social atmosphere of a square, don’t be surprised if he jumps in to show you the way in lines, contra, ballroom, or free styling!

Adam is making his mark in the world of square dancing as the author of the Square Auto-Choreographer and SquareCue apps, sharing innovative tools with other callers.

Adam & Diana 💃🕺

Adam and Diana met in 2012 in square dance class; Adam as an “angel” helper and Diana returning to the activity. In 2014, they married to become the dynamic duo you see today.

With Diana’s deep music insights and Adam’s technical dance attunement, this complementary pair can fulfill your every dance need.

🔎 Highlight: Community Chili Cook-off – September 2022

We were contacted by the event coordinator of a community HOA. She was planning a chili cook-off and thought it we be fun to do some square and line dancing while the votes were tallied. We thought that sounded fun too!

So much FUN! Diana and Adam brought the PARTY to our party! The music was perfect, the set-up was professional, and the line dancing and square dancing lessons were a BLAST! Highly recommend! – Michelle of Beaumont
She sent us some fantastic photos from the event too!

🔎 Highlight: Club Square Dance Caller – 2024

Starting with January 2024, Adam with Barn Dance Party is the official club caller for the Hand ‘n Hand Square Dance club!

We have been volunteering with this group for people with learning disabilities for several years, and am honored to be selected. Every week, Barn Dance Party calls and teaches square dance, line dance, contra, and other fun dances for this wonderful group.

(Photo are during line dancing, since I'm too busy for photos while calling. 😉)

🔎 Highlight: Fundraiser at 3Faces Ranch – June 2023

Raji found us online while looking to add square dancing and music to “a private fundraiser for a non-profit that provides scholarships for high functioning mentally disabled adults and homeless veterans.” We were all in on this!

We overnighted in our travel trailer on the ranch, since it was a long drive for us (thanks!) and got set up early to play music for the setup crew.

As the guests arrived and had their fill for lunch, the dancing began! They learned to square dance, contra dance, and several line dances as the afternoon went on.

Great couple! Fun to work with!

Diane and Adam were awesome to work with. They are very sweet, professional, enjoyable to interact with and helped provide suggestions to make my square dance party a success. I highly recommend them!

🔎 Highlight: Ranch Wedding – June 2019

A bride-to-be contacted us, wanting something a little different for her wedding – square dancing! Initially she was just looking for us to teach some introductory square dance to the guests. When the plans for a band didn’t pan out, we stepped up to provide recorded music. Over the months, as the planning continued, we found ourselves more and more involved until the final plan:

  • Violin concertos as the guests arrive for the ceremony
  • Microphone/PA for the ceremony
  • Special entry and exit songs, which we had to hunt down!
  • American standards for the pre-reception and meal
  • Guest participation first dance: square dance teach and dance!
  • Post party of guest requests!

We had our small setup for the ceremony, and large setup for the reception. Oh, and did mention this is all in Fillmore among horse stables and orange groves! 🌄🐎🍊

It was a smash success! Thirty-two members of the wedding party and guests joined in for a joyous time learning to square dance, and the after-party included requests from Spice Girls to “theme from Jurassic Park”!

Before we even completed our long drive home, the new bride had already sent in her testimonial!

Great music at a great wedding
These guys were super great as both square dance callers and wedding DJs. They provided excellent music during the ceremony, cocktail hour, rehearsal and dancing. They also taught us to square dance and played your standard wedding pop music so almost everyone got on the floor.
– Sarah G.
Thank you Sarah for the kind words and allowing us to be part of your special day.

Block Party 2019

Great dancing in the street at our block party
Adam and Diana were very professional (arrived early, were ready to go on time and brought all the equipment they promised), but also a lot of fun.

We would hire them again.

🔎 Highlight: Desert Wedding – December 2020

This was booked right before the pandemic began, as a Christmas themed western wedding ceremony and reception with square dancing! As dancers instructors, DJs, and volunteer Christmas elf & Santa’s helper, we jumped at his event tailor made to our passions!

The pandemic didn’t stop the wedding, but the close-group contact of square dancing was dropped. It was still a beautiful event at a wonderful desert venue.

Outstanding entertainment
Adam and Diana were the perfect addition to our wedding! They were always available for planning and added valued suggestions! They are easy to talk to and both very friendly! Their years of experience were very apparent. Always easy to reach, to run through the any changes or additions of music.
They were prompt and well equipped to provide everything we were expecting for a wonderful wedding ceremony and fun reception.
We would highly recommend them! Thank you Barn Dance party!
– Tammie
