The Oak Creek Band
The Oak Creek Band
I was expecting The Oak Creek Band to be a contemporary indie folk band, but their performance incorporated a range of styles that
included touches of blues, soul, a hint of country, rock 'n' roll and
doses of modern alternative rock. They managed to present the wide range of music in a coherent performance package that came off as a polished showcase of their versatility rather than a jumble of songs that hinted at a lack of identity.

The Oak Creek Band definitely has a hold of their identity, even if
that identity isn't something that can be easily categorized. They are a band that understands how to craft and deliver melody driven music through strong lead vocal work from Jenna and Daniel Watters. They understand the dynamic between each other and understand the personality that each of their voices contain. Jenna Watters has a powerful, deep-reaching soulful voice that brings oomph to the bands sound when necessary, while Daniel Watters has an emotive yet earnest sound that brings about a more introspective sound. The sometimes alternating lead and sometimes co-vocal dynamic of these two provide the framework of the band.
