NORTH WILDWOOD, NJ (Aug. 1, 2018) – “Mr. Saturday Night,” BOB PANTANO, the Delaware Valley’s #1 Rated Saturday Night Radio Host, moves into brand new Wildwood digs this weekend and every Sunday night for the rest of the summer, as host of the legendary Bob Pantano Dance Party at Wildwood’s newest entertainment complex, the newly opened 60,000-foot Seaport Pier in North Wildwood.
Pantano launches his SUNDAY NIGHT DANCE PARTY at Seaport Pier, 22nd Street & the Boardwalk, North Wildwood, THIS SUNDAY (Aug. 5). The Party starts each and every Sunday night at 6 p.m. with Bob Pantano and DJ Eric Bartello. (Bartello also will be hosting a Dance Party at Seaport Pier on Saturday Nights). More info at www.seaportpier.com.
“It’s the most spectacular new venue in all of the Wildwoods,” says Pantano. “It’s state-of-the-art entertainment, with a huge dance floor, huge bars, and a live concert stage … and it’s right on the Boardwalk overlooking the ocean. In all my years, I’ve never seen anything like this anywhere in Wildwood.”
The massive pier complex has been bringing shoregoers an entirely different experience since its opening earlier this summer. Seaport Pier features several bars and restaurants, direct access to the beach, and a large 40-by 80-foot pool in an exclusive area reserved for members. Adding the legendary Bob Pantano Dance Party to the mix every Sunday instantly elevates the pier’s recognition factor to a whole new level.
Seaport Pier is where all the action is on the North Wildwood Boardwalk – especially on Sunday Nights!
The Bob Pantano Dance Party has been doubling down throughout the Jersey Shore all summer to reach the beaches from Atlantic City to Wildwood with TWO versions of the legendary Bob Pantano Dance Party. The FRIDAY NIGHT DANCE PARTY continues each week at Johnny’s Café & Lounge, 9407 Ventnor Ave., in Margate for the season. That Party starts each and every Friday night at 8 p.m. More info at 609.822.1789 or www.johnnyscafeandlounge.com.

It moved to the Oasis Club, and the Fairview and in 1976, launched the first discotheque in Wildwood at the Mansion on Garfield Avenue. Pantano celebrated role in Wildwood’s music history was memorialized when he was added to the Avenue of the Stars along Pacific Avenue, where inductees who have helped build the Wildwoods as an “Entertainment Capital” of the East Coast are permanently honored.
Pantano remains #1 in his time slot “across the board” in the overall ratings as well and every age demographic, including the all-important 25-54 in the latest Neilsen ratings book. Indeed, Mr. Saturday Night is the King of Saturday Night among Delaware Valley radio listeners.
