Pre-Irene Hurricane Party at Whispers Restaurant - August 2011

Yeah...we knew she was coming.  We'd been getting warnings for a week as Hurricane Irene closed on the east coast and headed north.  We knew she was coming.  We had a party anyway!!!

And what a party it was!  Folks of all ages came out to party with us as the dance floor at Whispers Restaurant & Lounge rocked from the first note of the first song to the last note of the last song, and everything in between.

This was one serious full house!  Every table was reserved in advance, and many folks that came late were having trouble finding a parking space in the otherwise spacious parking lot!  Kudos go out to the staff at Whispers for accommodating as many reservations as they was a herculean effort!

Steve had a bunch of high school friends from Northwestern HS in Hyattsville stop by to join the was great to have them there!  We would love to make our Oracle performances a regular meeting place for those from Steve's Alma mater to get together & stay in touch.

Our "flip dancers" stopped by as well, and when we did "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" they basically stole the show by putting on a show of their own out on the dance floor.  Incredible was tough to play the song...we wanted to watch as they spun, twisted, and flew through the air with a grace that would have made the "celebrities" on a certain TV show take notice!

Oracle will be returning to Whispers on Friday, September 30th, and we're hoping for another great crowd.  Hope you can make it!  Stay tuned here for more information.
