The ducks didn't seem to mind the rain a bit, & kept staring at us wondering what the fuss was all about!

For the first time since Oracle began performing for the Laurel Summer in the Parks concert series some six years ago Mother Nature decided to try and throw a bit of a damper on the festivities.

While Daffy (pictured left) and the rest of his friends were wondering why a little deluge of rain & wind might disturb anyone, the rest of us on stage waited out the storm, and in less than 30 minutes had thrown off the tarps, plugged the amps back in, and a concert was underway.

Our performances in Laurel are always fun, and we weren't about to disappoint the fans that came out and waited through the rain delay.  By the end of the performance there was a nice group of people out on the lawn, and more than a few folks out dancing on the somewhat soggy ground.

The audience slowly swelled. Most thought the concert would be cancelled because of the rain, but we knew the show must go on! The kids love coming to concerts like this to ALL ages!
With so much space the stage seems a long ways off, but that's Oracle up there performing. Nikki on stage at Laurel Concert 2008
Oracle performances are geared towards the whole family, kids included, (& the stuffed animals are invited too)! Folks were dancing whenever the urge overtook them at the 2008 Laurel Lakes concert
