Come Support the Kids at Gambrills Athletic Club Bull & Oyster Roast

Gambrills Bull & Oyster Roast This Saturday November 2nd!

They're famous.  It's that simple.

Scrumptious  food, great music, great people, and dancing until the wee hours.

That's what's in store as Oracle returns for the 8th consecutive year to the annual Gambrills Athletic Club Bull & Oyster Roast, held this Saturday, November 2nd.

This is a benefit that helps raise funds for the athletic programs at Gambrills.  Let's face involved in sports don't have time to get into trouble.  In this day and age when sports programs are being cut back and the opportunities for kids to participate are dwindling, Gambrills continues to offer a great program to serve the community.

And at this time of year we need all our friends to step up and help support this worthwhile group.  There are still plenty of tickets remaining for this party.  Between the food, the beer, and the music, you're not only having a great time but you're helping to support a deserving group of kids at the same time!!!

The menu for this fantastic benefit is impressive.  Check out these offerings:
  • GAC Famous Open Pit Beef sliced to order
  • Raw Oysters on the Half Shell
  • Fried Oysters
  • Oyster stew
  • Fresh Ham
  • Country Sausage on the Pit
  • Mashed Potatoes & Gravy
  • Green Beans
  • Sauerkraut with Fresh Pork Sausage
  • Fresh Relish Tray
  • Assorted Rolls & Bread
  • Iced Sheet Cakes
  • Sodas
  • Draft Beer
If your beverage preferences run to heavier adult beverages or more exotic beers & wines, you are permitted to BYOB.

In addition to the incredible menu, there will be several games of chance going on, including a 50-50 drawing, Big Six Wheel, Vegas Tickets, and a Plant / Whiskey Wheel.


Tickets are $40 per person, and you must be 21 or older to attend.  

Tickets for this event may be purchased by calling:
  • Steve Kuczinski - 410-969-2845 - 410-919-8809
  • Bobby Gentile - 410-987-1142 - 443-336-8954

This is one of the first times that we can remember that there are still tickets remaining at this late date!  Usually folks are complaining that the tickets have sold out before they get a chance to purchase any!  Don't miss your chance...CALL TODAY!!! From what we were told there are still about 50 seats remaining.

Doors open around 6:30 and the food comes out at 7:00.  The Oracle will take over and we'll be rockin' the dance floor right up until midnight!

The clubhouse is located on McKnew Rd, just off Route 175, near Route 3.

Here's a little video clip taken at the 2012 event in November.  We hope you enjoy, and we hope you'll consider joining us this year!

Big Halloween Party Coming Up - Are You Ready for a "THRILLER"???


This Friday, November 1st Oracle Band will be hosting our annual Halloween party at Blobs Park in Jessup Md.

The party starts at 8:00 and goes right up to the "witching hour" of midnight, at which point we all turn into pumpkins, (or something like that)!

Those that have been to our Halloween parties in the past know that we don't hold anything is a party from start to finish, (and sometimes a little PAST the finish)!!!

We realize that a lot of people went to parties this past weekend.  That's cool.  This gives you all an opportunity to get even more use out of those costumes and do it all over again, but this time a little closer to Halloween!  Even better...we'll have EVERYONE ready to party since we won't be competing with so many other Halloween Parties.

Look at it this way.  The kids get to go trick or treating on Thursday night, and the ADULTS get to come out to play on FRIDAY night!!!'s only fair...right?

What makes Blob's Park better than the other places?  In a word...SPACE!!!  The dance floor at Blob's is positively HUGE, with room enough for everyone to so off their creativity in terms of costumes and in terms of their dance moves.

This is going to be a great place for a large group of friends.  With all the room at Blob's there is enough space to put groups of  10, 15, 25, or even MORE people together.  Is there someone with a birthday coming up as well?  Let us know, bring the whole gang out, and we'll make sure it's acknowledged properly!  Bring the whole office!  Getting married sometime in the near future?  Bring your whole bridal party, or make it the best Bachelorette Party in history!

Costume Contests

This year there will be FOUR prizes awarded for costumes.  Categories are as follows:
  • Best Couple
  • Scariest
  • Most Creative
  • Best Overall
Costumes aren't required of course, but's Halloween...let's get into the "spirit" of things!

Blob's Park Information for those of you who have not yet been to Blob's Park, here's the info on the place.

Blob's is located in Jessup Maryland, just off the Baltimore-Washington Parkway at the Route 175 interchange.  Here's the address for those needing a GPS location:

Reservations are definitely recommended as we are expecting a big crowd.  Those in the know will want to get a table near the dance floor, and the folks at Blob's will want to make sure that they have plenty of tables set up.  Call 410 799-7130 to make your reservation.

Admission for this party is still only $10 per person!  Advance tickets are not required, just pay at the door.

Don't miss out on what is sure to be the biggest and best Halloween Party in the entire area!

Photos from American Legion Auxiliary Fundraiser - October 2013

It is always a pleasure to perform for the folks at the American Legion.  Whether for the Legion, the Sons of the American Legion, or in this case the American Legion Auxiliary, these folks are the best!!!

For this occasion we were at the American Legion Post 40 in Glen Burnie Maryland for the annual Auxiliary Dinner and Dance fundraiser.

The sold out crowd helped raise funds to support the various activities supported by the Auxiliary.  The dinner was scrumptious, and once the music got going the dance floor was full from the first note to the last.

These photos have also been posted to our FaceBook Page where you can comment as well as tag yourselves and your friends that were here.  You can also click on the slideshow to go to our Flickr page where you can download and of the individual photos.

We hope you enjoy.  Thanks again to everyone that came out to support this worthwhile cause.

Photos from October LA Singles Dance

It was another wonderful night as a full house of like minded singles came out to the Cardinal Room at Baldwin Hall in Bowie Maryland to dance and party the night away.

This was our first appearance in quite a while and a GREAT crowd came out to join us...there was a line waiting to get in at one point in the evening.

We've posted these photos over on our FaceBook Page as well, where you can comment on them and tag your friends, or you may click on the slideshow to go to our Flickr page where you can download individual images if you like.

Thanks again to everyone that came out and we hope to see you all again real soon.  In the meantime, please enjoy the photos!

Once our feast is over Oracle will be hitting the stage for four solid hours of dancing as we party our way into 2014 and say farewell to 2013.

As we hit that 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!  The balloons will tumble from the ceiling and we'll all dance together to Auld Lang Syne and savor the New Year.

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, plus taking your requests, as we bring multiple generations together on the dance floor to celebrate as one big happy family!

We'll be keeping that music going right up until 1:00 in the morning!  But wait!!!  We're not done yet!!!


As we hit the 1:00 hour, the folks at La Fontaine Bleue will roll out a Continental Breakfast that will satiate those hunger pangs after an evening of dancing. stops at McDonalds after THIS show!!!  Fritatas made with farm fresh eggs, real bacon, fresh-made waffles, coffee, tea, decaf and more!

It also 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.


La Fontaine Bleue, perhaps the classiest spot in all of Anne Arundel County, is very easy to get to from Baltimore, Annapolis and even Washington DC.  Just a short distance off I-97, one can get there in under 30 minutes from most locations in and around Baltimore City, Anne Arundel, Howard, Prince Georges, and Baltimore Counties, and around an hour from most locations in Montgomery, Carroll, and Frederick Counties as well as the Eastern Shore.
