Oracle Band New Years 2011-2012 Party at La Fontaine Bleue Fast Approaching

New Years Eve with Oracle Band!  Oh yeah...it's gonna be a blast and a half!!!

Oracle Band - New Years Eve 2010 @ La Fontaine Bleue Glen Burnie MarylandYou all may remember last year's fantastic party at La Fontaine Bleue.  The food was out of this world, (we can still taste the crabcakes), the ambiance was classy, and there was plenty of room for all 700+ people that came out to join us!

We're expecting things to be even BETTER this year.  We're addressing the issue we had last year that necessitated some last minute table shifting to ensure that those that get their tickets early get first shot at the best seats in the house.

The ballroom there can seat over a thousand people, but like our Halloween Party earlier this year we're keeping things smaller so there will be plenty of room on the dance floor to dance in the New Year 2012.
Oracle has performed at La Fontaine Bleue on many occasions over the years, for holiday parties, weddings, bull roasts and benefits.  We have an excellent relationship with the management and owners there, and we are really excited about this continued collaboration.


Oracle Band - New Years Eve 2010 @ La Fontaine Bleue Glen Burnie MarylandCheck out this all-you-can-eat lineup!!!
  • Maryland Jumbo Lump Crabcakes
  • Large Old Bay Steamed Shrimp
  • Carved Tender Angus Beef
  • Delmarva Rotisserie Chicken

  • La Fontaine Bleue's Famous Viennese Display of Desserts with a Large Assortment of Cakes & Mini-Pastries
Then of course there will be the open bar with Top Shelf brands, Premuim Beer, Wine, coffee, tea, and sodas to quench any thirst.

Are you hungry yet?  Wait...there's more!


Oracle Band - New Years Eve 2010 @ La Fontaine Bleue Glen Burnie MarylandOnce our feast is over we'll be hitting the stage for four solid hours of dancing as we party our way into 2012 and say farewell to 2011.  

As we hit the magic Midnight Hour the champagne will flow as everyone will don their party hats and noisemakers to raise a ruckus that will be heard all the way back in Annapolis!

We'll be playing all your favorite dance music, with a variety that will span multiple decades.  From the Andrews Sisters to Lady GaGa, we'll be bringing it all, as we bring multiple generations together on the dance floor to celebrate together.

But wait...we're not done yet!!!


Then, as we hit the 1:00 hour, the folks at La Fontaine Bleue will roll out a ContinentalOracle Band - New Years Eve 2010 @ La Fontaine Bleue Glen Burnie Maryland Breakfast that will Fritatas made with farm resh eggs, bacon, fresh-made waffles, coffee, tea, decaf and more!

It gives the band an opportunity to come out to say hi to everyone and socialize for a while.  You folks have supported the band for so many years we sometimes find it tough that we can't come out to spend more time with everyone.


Of course we want everyone to get home safely after a night like this.  There are numerous hotels nearby with door to door shuttle service so you won't have to drive home.  The folks at La Fontaine Bleue will be happy to make recommendations based on your needs, amenities desired, and of course the rates.

As with last year, the basic rule is "dress to impress".  The band will be decked out in our best formalwear, and we recommend a business casual attire at a minimum.  Ladies, we'd like to see you in your stunning best!


The ticket price for this event remains unchanged from last year. Tickets for New Years 2011-2012 are $80 per person for a table of 10, or $85 per person if purchased in lesser quantities.

Attendance Records set at 2011 Oracle Holiday Party at Whispers Restaurant & Lounge

We thought we'd seen it all.  Walking in to set up at Whispers and finding every table in the club already reserved.  Looking out onto a packed dance floor of enthusiastic dancers.

Last Friday blew us away.  As we gazed out into the room we saw a sea of faces on the dance floor and off...with folks dancing in the aisles because they couldn't reach the dance floor for their favorite song. Some folks reported just staying on the dance floor rather than trying to get back to their seats.  We took over 1000 photos, (whittled that number down to 103 that we've posted), and as we edited them we found friends we didn't even know were there that night.!

Many many thanks to everyone that came out to make this evening so spectacular.  We hope you enjoy the photos.

Oracle Band Holiday Party for "The Family" @ Whispers Restaurant

That's right...on Friday, December 16 Oracle will be returning to Whispers Restaurant & Lounge for our final public performance before Christmas and New Years, and it's gonna be a BIG ONE!!!

We found last November that reservations were basically full up a WEEK before the show, so we highly recommend that you give Whispers a call EARLY to make your reservations, as we're pretty certain that every table in the house and then some will all be reserved before Friday.  Whispers has gone to great lengths to ensure that everyone that wants a table has a place to sit, but lets face it folks...there is only a finite amount of space and they can't make the place any bigger!

Give the folks at Whispers a call well in advance at 410-768-3900 to make your reservation.  Don't wait...we want ALL our fans to have a close-in seat!!!

Of course most of our die hard fans won't need to sit much as they will all be on the dance floor from the first song to the last, but hey...you guys need to sit SOMETIME and buy some drinks, (the waitresses & bartenders have to make some money too you know)!!!

Speaking of our waitresses and bartenders, we would ask that you all remember them extra special as we celebrate the holidays.  We've had some huge crowds at Whispers over the course of the past year, and while our fans are generally very generous with their tips, there have been some nights that folks tended to forget.  These folks bust their you-know-whats all evening long to make sure everyone has a good time.  We'd like to ask that all the Oracle fans make sure to add a generous bonus onto your tip and show the staff just how much we appreciate their hard efforts throughout the year.

In case you haven't been there, Whispers is really easy to get to.  Located near the intersection of Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd and Mountain Rd, you can be there in less than 30 minutes from Baltimore, Columbia, Laurel, Bowie, Odenton, Catonsville, Annapolis, Edgewater, and a host of other towns.  In addition, thanks to the newly opened Inter-County Connector (ICC), folks from Montgomery County can be there in under an hour!!!
