Searching for a live variety band for your wedding or private party?  

Strangely enough, one of the toughest parts of auditioning live bands these days is actually hearing them perform.  

Many wedding bands that specialize in weddings and private parties almost NEVER perform publicly.  They hand you a slick videotape with lots of dance moves, billowing fog, and huge light trusses, and make like this is what it is actually going to look like at your function.  While it may be true in SOME cases, in the vast majority it is not.

About Videotapes

Beware of videotapes!  What you see and hear, and what you actually get may be two completely different things.  With enough money and a good studio just about any band can be made to look and sound good.  However, this might not translate well into a live performance.

Come Hear Your Band LIVE in Public

Oracle is different.  We perform one to three weekends a month at a public performance somewhere, giving prospective clients a chance to come out and hear us perform live...the way it was meant to be.  For the complete schedule of public performances go to the calendar page.

Introducing Live Samples of Oracle Band

So, what do you do if you're out of town, or perhaps you want to listen to a few bands before tackling the task of driving across town to hear a band?  Well, Oracle has a number of options open to you...starting right here on this page.

This page sports a variety of material as performed by Oracle. All of the selections you hear were recorded LIVE off the mixing board in actual performances.  No post production enhancement has been done, with the minor exception of fade ins and fade outs on the various excerpts.  What you hear here is exactly what came out of the speakers at the performance! 

We offer three options.  The easiest way to listen is to click on the RealAudio file, and assuming you have RealAudio installed on your computer, (most computers already have it loaded), the selection will stream right to you in a matter of seconds.

If your tastes are somewhat more discerning, we offer a higher quality MP3 file download.  While the quality is superior to the RealAudio, it does take a little longer to download.  For those with a high speed broadband connection, though, you should opt for this method.

We also have links to a number of YouTube videos that we have recorded live.  The audio quality is usually somewhat poorer as they utilize the microphone that is built into the camera, but one again, what you see and hear are all live, and you can get a better feel for the energy and enthusiasm that accompany every song we perform.

Finally, if you would prefer, we would be happy to send you a CD with a selection of these songs, so you can simply play them on your home CD player.  Just send an e-mail to and request a promotional package.  We'll mail you the CD and a hard copy of the band's songlist.

Check back regularly as we are constantly adding new audio and video clips.
