What is it that makes one band different from another?
What is it that influences YOUR decision making process?
Is it "The Sound"? Oracle Band is an affordable six piece band with a 15 piece sound. Through the use of cutting edge technology Oracle will provide the kind of sound you hear on the original recordings. We play the parts, not just the chords. Intricate vocal harmonies (everyone in the band sings), violin / fiddle virtuosity, rock solid bass & drums, dynamic trumpet work, exciting guitar riffs...it’s all there. Some people have said they couldn’t believe a sound that full could come from a group this small. Best of all, despite the big, fat, full sound, the volume is NEVER too loud. YOU have the final word on volume, and we are well aware that a wedding is an event where family and friends want to socialize OFF the dance floor as well as on it. We’ll ensure that everyone can hold a normal conversation without having to shout. Is it the repertoire? With over 500 songs for you to choose from, there are certain to be plenty of your favorites from the following styles: Motown Top 40 Classic Rock Swing Country Oldies Big Band / Standards Disco If there’s a special song you’d like for your first dance or parent dance that we don’t already do, we’ll learn it for you, no problem. As if that weren’t enough, since we bring a live DJ to each wedding, we can spin ANY of your favorite songs in between the band’s sets. You get the excitement and energy of a live band, coupled with the expansive repertoire of a DJ, all in one reasonably priced package. Want to check out our repertoire? Head on over to the Oracle Band Songlist Page and see for yourself the kind of variety we offer Is it the PRICE? Ah...we struck a "chord" (sorry) there! It’s usually the first question anyone asks, and it tends to be the last one anyone wants to answer. We’re not afraid to put it right out front. We charge the same amount no matter what. Hiring a band shouldn’t be like buying a used car, where you have to "negotiate". Oracle charges $2400 for a four hour reception within the Maryland / Northern Virginia / Washington DC metropolitan area, and $400 for each additional hour. We feel this is one of the most competitive rates you’ll find anywhere. Is it the attitude? Are you ready for some FUN? We are! We wouldn’t be doing this if we didn’t LOVE what we do. When WE have fun, EVERYONE has fun! A wedding is never "just another gig" to Oracle. We enjoy each and every performance, we treat them ALL as the most important, and yet we respect the fact that this is YOUR wedding, not a band showcase. YOU are the stars of the show, not the band. Your wedding day should be a reflection of YOUR passions, YOUR tastes, and YOUR personalities. Oracle will help to ensure that your wedding day bears the mark of YOUR personality.

Our commitment to you doesn’t end when the ink on the contract is dry. We are always available for consultation as you move forward with your plans. If you need ideas, if you want to bounce ideas off of us, or if you’re uncertain about any aspect of the planning process, you’re always welcome to give us a call, or drop us an e-mail Since we are an independent band you are always dealing directly with the band members and not through a third party agent that may or may not pass your wishes on to the band.
We’d love to have you come out to hear the band perform live. We maintain an extensive public performing schedule so you can come out to hear the band live without having to crash someone else’s wedding! Many bands today consider themselves above performing in nightclubs or restaurants, but hey...Oracle is different...remember? We LOVE to play, no matter where it may be.

You can find out where we’ll be performing by visiting the Oracle Band Calendar Page. We have all of our public performances listed, as well as directions to all of the locations. This is how you should be evaluating bands, by hearing and seeing them perform live, wthout having to crash someone else’s wedding! Unfortunately far too many bands these days consider themselves beneath performing in clubs or restaurants.

Our website also has literally thousands of photos from various public performances. Check out the Oracle Band Photo Galleries and you can see for yourself just how much fun everyone has at one of the band’s performances. We have created a special photo gallery right here on the WeddingWire website of photos we’ve taken at many of the various weddings we have performed at over the years.

From indoors to outdoors, from afternoons to evenings, we get people to DANCE! Check out the faces of the folks on the dance floor. They are having FUN! You can also see how we interact with the crowd, from bringing the kids up on stage with us to play a tambourine to bringing the wedding party up with us to sing a song.

Are you out of town and perhaps can’t make it out to one of our live performances? That’s OK. You can listen to over 100 song excerpts right from our website. All of the clips you hear were recorded directly off the mixing board in live performance. What you hear is what you get. There were no studio tricks, overdubs, retakes, or anything like that. Go to our Audition the Band page to give us a listen. Read less

We hired Oracle band for our wedding in August, and we were absolutely thrilled with our decision! Veronica, the band leader, was very professional and responsive to us leading up to the wedding, and the band really took the time to know exactly what we wanted. They even learned 2 songs especially for us! They also took their entire break during dinner, and then played for over 3 hours straight once the party kicked off. This band is so talented and can play many genres of music. They also served as MC for our reception. They absolutely made our wedding awesome - the dance floor was packed the entire night. The number 1 comment we received from our guests was about how great our band was. They are very reasonably priced as well. I cannot recommend Oracle Band enough. Hire them for your wedding now!

Oracle did such an AMAZING JOB on our wedding day!! We got married on March 29, 2014 and my family and friends are still talking about how amazing the band was! Everyone agreed it made the best reception they’d ever been too! They sound amazing (sound clips on the website don’t do them justice!) and they were amazing to work with! So friendly and professional! Veronica was so sweet and when I finally met her I couldn’t wait to hug her! Our wedding day was for sure the best day of our lives and Oracle Band will always stand out as one of the best parts! Highly recommend them if you want everyone dancing the whole night! Our guests were still dancing as we skipped out the door!

Oracle was FANTASTIC at our wedding! This was no surprise to us, as we go listen to them play regularly around town. When the time came to plan for music at the wedding, there was no question as to who my husband and I wanted to play. All we had to do was make sure they weren't already booked! I am still getting comments about how great the band was, and people asking who they were and where they are playing next. They were absolutely a hit! They can play any genre of music and always sound great doing so! In fact, my father wrote his own song for the father daughter dance, and Mike learned it and sang it beautifully. He went above and beyond, and I am so thankful that they helped make our day so special.

I also have to give a special thanks to Nikki. She is the violinist, and played as I walked down the aisle. She played beautifully and made my day that much more memorable.

I can't recommend Oracle enough!

Oracle performed during our ceremony and the music was positively beautiful. We actually knew of the band because they perform at our church and when we discovered they did this professionally, we knew we had to have them for our ceremony. We did have a full Catholic mass for our ceremony so there was a lot of music to cover. Not only that, but my husband is part Chilean so it was important to us to have some Spanish songs since we had some Spanish speaking guests. They were accommodating to our needs and all the songs were sung and performed beautifully. I have received many many compliments about the ceremony music from family and friends. Highly recommend!

Having Oracle Band perform at our daughter's wedding was a great decision. They are a group of talented musicians and singers who can keep a reception energized and the guests entertained. So, so many of our guests took the time to tell us how much they 'loved' the band and their music. The wedding turned out 'perfect' and I give Oracle Band a large share of the credit for making the day one that we will long remember with happiness and joy.

This band played for our recent wedding and I cannot tell you how happy I was to have them at my wedding. It would not have been as fun of a wedding had they not been there. They are extremely reasonably priced and during their breaks, they have one of the members "dj" to keep the group going. They are very flexible and play so many good wedding songs. The band leader, Steve is very responsive via email and suggests good ideas on timing of everything in order to keep the crowd excited and dancing. Two cousins have booked them for their weddings after attending our wedding!! You will not be disappointed by booking Oracle Band for your wedding or event.
