Oracle Band visits IBEW summer picnic 2013

Our return to Camp Letts down in Edgewater Md was threatening to become a washout as the weather threatened and raindrops were falling the entire trip out to set up.

This is the annual picnic for the folks with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 26.

This years event (this was our third performance here) brought us a new stage location and the addition of a dance floor.  The addition of the dance floor was especially welcome as past years had lots of people wanting to dance but having a bit of a difficult time of it in the grass and dirt.

Fortunately our excellent relationship with Mother Nature once again proved to be a blessing and the skies, although remaining cloudy, did not open up on us and waited until we were about to break down before starting to dribble on us!

The cloudy skies were also a blessing in that they kept the temperature down...something of a blessing for an outdoor event in August in the DC area!!!

Anyway, we had a blast, the crowd was overwhelming in it's approval, and the dance floor got a good workout.  (Who says you can't get people to dance in the afternoon at an outdoor event???)

Enjoy the photos!
