WUSA TV 9 Voters 
Comments, Kudos, & Testimonials

In August and September of 2006 the WUSA TV Channel 9 website ran a contest allowing the public to vote for their favorite wedding service providers.  Oracle was nominated to be included as a candidate for "Best Wedding Entertainment In Washington DC".

Although we did not win based on the vote count, in our opinion we came out the big winner in a much more important way...based on the comments the voters left after casting their ballots.

Since we were only permitted to display 10 of the many comments we received on the WUSA Website Testimonials Page, we thought we'd copy and paste ALL of the comments that were left over the three week period when ballots were being cast.  The only editing we've done is to remove last names to ensure everyone's privacy.

They have an awesome sound for only 4 sometimes 5 musicians. Their vocals and guitar are incredible. They also do everything in their power to make your event special. They learn new songs just for your event and they emcee your party with great professionalism. They played for a special birthday party for my husband and myself and gave us memories we'll cherish forever.

They are outstanding performers! We have been following the band for eight years and they played at both of our girls weddings. Everything was perfect from the Father/Daughter medley dance to the bands traditional patriotic closing song. They sing and play from their heart and souls, it is felt by everyone!

The Oracle Band is simply the best entertainment band around. No matter how often you see them, or what your age, you can't help but want to get on the dance floor, sing along or just enjoy the music. They are an extraordinary group of talented singers and musicians who play to their audience and enjoy what they are doing. I highly recommend them to anyone that wants a guarantee that their wedding, special occasion, or just a night out on the town, is a fun filled success. If you want "Valentine" (sung by Martina McBride), played in the middle of June, it will and has been done.

The vocal quality and musical ability of Oracle Band is exceptional. The wide variety of music styles is also a huge asset; they can cater to ANY musical taste. On stage, they are a real crowd pleaser. In between sets, they love to get out and meet with the audience, not only to gauge how their music is being accepted, but also just to say "hello". They are personable, and truly enjoy making people smile. They really love it when the audience gets on their feet and hits the dance floor or joins them on tambourines. They make any occasion a fun one!

Oracle played for our wedding three years ago, and people STILL talk about what a great band they were! Veronica sang everything from The Carpenters to Joan Jett, and every song she sang sounded like the original. These folks made our wedding reception something very special, even going so far as to learn a different first dance song for us on less than two day's notice! Incredible talent, first rate customer service, and the friendliest personality anyone could ask for. They're not only the best in Washington DC, they're the best on the east coast as far as we're concerend!

Outstanding band..totally involves the audience. They make the evening an experience. Only thing better than attending an evening with Oracle is when Nikki makes a guest appearance to bring the evening over the top

The members of the band always have a lot of energy and project that to the audience. They make you feel the music and make you want to get up and dance the night away. A lot of bands I have seen lately just play the music and just act as though they don't care whether you partake or not. I have never seen anyone in the band in a less than cheerful mood and always try and please everyone in attendance.

The combination of musical talent and showmanship. Most local regional bands you see perform today strive to have maybe only one of these elements, but Oracle truly is entertaining. they encompass Showmanship, great vocals excellent musicians and a great selection of music. I haven't seen any other band quite as good as them, except one band "train wreck" , but they have broken-up so Oracle gets my vote.

A great bar band, they do a WIDE range of popular music. Their talents include rock, pop, country, swing - you name it, they do it, especially if you can dance to it. They easily and readily fulfill song requests. Excellent musicians and great singers. This band really aims to please their audience. I've seen this band regularly in local bars and clubs. If I had to plan an event, I'd hire them in a minute.

The "Oracle Band" is the best I've heard in a long time. They enjoy what they do and it shows. The audience picks up on Oracle's mood, therfore, creating a really great stress relief evening.

Oracle played at my daughters wedding and EVERYONE there loved them. TWO HUNDRED PEOPLE. They were absolutely without a doubt fabulous. There was no one sitting and the dance floor was packed. We still have people ask us about them. I now have people that i work with asking for their web page so that they and their friends and family can go see them. I have never heard a bad word about them. They play all different types of music for the young and old so everyone has a great time. I have another daughter that one day will be getting married and we will plan her wedding around their schedule. We will also have a longer reception just because everyone had such a good time at my other daughters wedding and were so disappointed that the time had to end. I LOVE THEM

When Oracle Band plays you either have to get on the dance floor, tap your foot or sing along. They are a band whose voices and instrumentals blend to perform awesome music. They are able to sing all types of music which makes them so diversified and enjoyed by many age groups. Oracle Band is an talented, energetic and fun loving group. That is why I'm voting for Oracle Band and that is why I have booked them to perform for my daughter's wedding in March, 2007.

Oracle Band played at my recent wedding and they were absolutely fantastic! They really helped liven up the party and all of our guests -- of every generation -- were on the dance floor having an awesome time! Everyone just raved about the band afterwards and said they had never been to such a fun wedding party. Oracle Band is simply the best!
