Oracle Band New Years Celebration 2011-2012 @ La Fontaine BleueNew Years Eve with Oracle Band!  Oh's gonna be a blast and a half!!!

You 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 500+ people that came out to join us!

We're expecting our best year ever this year.  Ticket sales have been brisk and we are expecting a sold out performance.

Oracle has performed at La Fontaine Bleue on many occasions over the years, for holiday parties, Valentine's Day dances, 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.  The management and staff at La Fontaine Bleue pull out all the stops to make sure this New Years Eve party is simply the classiest, most enjoyable, simply the BEST party in the entire Baltimore / Washington / Annapolis area!

The World Didn't End, But the Party Was a BLAST!!! the Mayans got it wrong!  Friday, December 23rd, the day they've been predicting for years as the ultimate "End Of The World", came and went without a whimper.  But was a FANTASTIC excuse to call all of the Oracle Band faithful together for one humongous Holiday Party at Whispers Restaurant in Glen Burnie Maryland.

Possibly the biggest house we've ever seen at Whispers came out to enjoy the evening, and the packed dance floor was a distinct reflection of the party atmosphere.

We got to see a BUNCH of friends that we haven't seen for quite some time, some former bandmates from other groups that stopped by to celebrate, classmates from High School (and one from Steve's JUNIOR High), and of course the faithful, the Oracle Family, who had a table reserved for the better part of two months for this party!

Our dancing bartender was invited up on stage at one point to the delight of the crowd, the lights were nothing short of hypnotic, and we pulled out tunes from the 60s all the way through today.  We were still going strong when we noticed with a shock it was already 1:00AM and that the evening had come to an end.

We'd like to thank all the folks who were so kind enough to bring us out cards and was very thoughtful and we appreciate it more than you can imagine.

Oracle will be returning to Whispers next year on the last Friday of each month, starting on Friday, January 25th.  That make it really easy to remember for everyone, but of course all of our public performances are listed on our Calendar Page, so you can always check there as well.

We hope you enjoy the photos from the evening, and if you'd like to comment on any of them feel free to head over to our FaceBook Page where you will find all of them waiting for you to tag yourselves and comment away.

Upcoming Whispers Performance Celebrates Christmas, Holidays, & the End Of The World


Friday, December 21, 2012

9:00 to 1:00

The End of the World Holiday Party

Whispers Restaurant & Lounge - Glen Burnie, Md


Well folks, you don't want to miss this one, 'cause if you do, at least according to the ancient Mayan calendar, there may not be any more, because according to them, the end of the world will be upon us on this day, (although they neglected to tell us what time or in what time zone)!

A 1300 year old stone tablet found in southern Mexico allegedly predicts that the 13th and final "Baktun" or period, will end on December 21st, which also happens to mark the Winter solstice.

WHAT?  A non-believer?  Well, no matter, it makes one heck of a great excuse for a party, now doesn't it???

For the traditionalists among us, for those unwilling to grasp the prospect of the end of the world, (or the majority who have heard it all before and are rolling their eyes and laughing incredulously right now), there is always the very real significance of the annual Oracle Band Holiday Party.

Never before have we had a public performance this close to Christmas Day, but this year we'll be checking to see who's been naughty and who's been nice, and we'll put them all on the dance floor at Whispers and watch what happens as we celebrate all that's good in the world at this very special time of year.

Last year's Holiday Party at Whispers broke attendance records, and we're looking to do the same this year.  We strongly suggest calling as soon as possible to reserve your seats as they are going to be rolling out a LOT of extra tables for this one!

We hope that we'll be seeing ALL of our friends out for this final holiday party before the New Year.  Best wishes to all for a safe and happy holiday season!

Great Turnout at Holly Ball In Annapolis

A wonderful turnout at the 49th annual Holly Ball last Friday brought over 220 people decked out in their finest attire to spin, twirl, and have a great time on the dance floor, while at the same time supporting a wonderful cause.

Each year the folks of the Severn Town Club select a primary recipient to donate the evenings proceeds to.
This year's primary beneficiary is Light House, a Homeless Prevention Support Center located in Annapolis.

We all know that for these past few years funds have been tighter than ever, but we must remember that there are many that are far less fortunate than ourselves, so it was incredibly encouraging to see so many folks in attendance helping to raise funds for this very special organization.  The stories we heard during the program from the director of the center were truly inspiring.

The Westin Hotel in Annapolis put out a wonderful spread, the ambiance was wonderful, and the food was delicious.

Once we got to the dancing portion of the evening the dance floor was moving all evening long, and indeed the band ended up doing to encores...the folks just didn't want to stop!

2012 marked the fifth consecutive year we've had the privilege of performing for these wonderful people.  We sincerely hope that we will be invited back again for their big 50th Anniversary Ball.  It promises to be something extra special.  We'll keep everyone up to date!

Enjoy the photos!
