Oracle Performing at Joint Services Open House at Andrews Air Force Base

May 14, 2004

It was certainly a day to remember.  The Golden Knights parachute team "dropping in" right outside the Officer's Club door to the applause of hundreds.  The Navy Blue Angels performing breathtaking aerobatics in the sky with incredible precision.  The men and women who currently serve our country alongside those that have served over the last 75 years or so.

All of this combined to make the Oracle performance at the Joint Services Open House at Andrews Air Force Base Officers Club on Armed Forces weekend a smashing success...a day we will all remember.

The photos below show some of the scenes from the day.

In addition to being some of the best pilots in the world, they are also some of the friendliest people it has ever been our privilege to meet.

Stay tuned to the Oracle website for information as it becomes available.

If you'd be interested in attending other performances at Andrews Officer's Club, check out our calendar page to find out when we'll be appearing there next.

Due to perfectly obvious security reasons you can't just show up at our performance there, but with a little advance notice we can see to it that anyone can come out to enjoy an evening with us.
