Bio

Several students from The West Indies formed The Oasis Band in 1988. These students played with various bands in the Caribbean and wanted to continue playing music in the United States while pursuing college degrees.

As the members graduated, some returned to the Caribbean while others moved on to pursue careers in their various fields of study. Mr. Peter Humphrey, The Oasis Band Leader, decided to continue The Oasis Spirit by hiring local musicians in the Washington, D.C. area who were exposed to Caribbean music. His aim was always focused on satisfying his customers by “Quenching their Musical Thirst”.

Presently The Oasis Band performs regularly in many establishments throughout the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. You can find the Oasis Band performing in clubs including The Caribbean Crossroads, Zanzibar On the Waterfront, Bukom Café, Safari and Fast Eddies. You may have also seen The Oasis Band at several International Festivals in the area and at the Air Jamaica & United Airlines Promotion Festivals.

In the metropolitan area The Oasis Band have opened for world-renowned performers such as: Luciano, Sanchez, Morgan Heritage, Gregory Isaacs, Denis Brown, Fabulous Five, Burning Flames, Machel Montano, Barrington Levy, Freddie McGregor and most recently Joseph Hill and Culture.

The band’s primary goal is to "Quench Your Musical Thirst" with popular dance music of the Caribbean, including Reggae, Calypso & Steel drums as well as African music. The Oasis Band’s aim is to reach out to a diverse community and provide everyone the opportunity to unite through music.

The Oasis Band believes in community outreach and enhancing the quality of life and environment to better the way for our future. Members of The Oasis Band participate in after school activities to provide a choice of musical education to less fortunate children. The Oasis Band donates a portion of CD sales to charities in the Caribbean. This year The Oasis Band is proud to announce they will contribute to charities in the United States and the immediate Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
