Marriage Equality- Yes We Are Open For Business
The Slide McBride band would like to congratulate Australia for voting for marriage equality. The members of my band and my family anxiously anticipated the results from the marriage equality plebiscite and then as the bill passed the Upper and finally through the Lower House. It was a wonderful moment to know that the majority of Australians support the LGBTQI community and recognise that everyone has the right to marry the person that they love.
I have had the pleasure, throughout my career, prior to the passing of the marriage equality act, to have the honour of performing at many same-sex commitment ceremonies. It was privilege to witness the courage and commitment of same sex couples to openly commit to each despite the fact that they were being discriminated against by Australian law. It was evident to everyone present how much these people loved each other. It was also obvious how unfair and discriminatory the then marriage act was to the LGBTQI community.
The Slide McBride Band would like to say we support same-sex marriages and are excited to entertain and perform at many in the future. Congratulating to the LBTQI community and congratulations to Australia for supporting same sex marriage and equality.

Moby’s at Whale Beach – Venue Review
Going to the Northern Beaches of Sydney is like leaving Sydney altogether. The “vibe” of the district is nothing like the rest of Sydney. It has a tranquility unmatched. It’s as if such a high proportion of their population meditates and does yoga that the consciousness of the area has been taken to a higher plane.
The drive up to Moby’s at Whale Beach is long and arduous, but once you arrive it’s like the stress simply washes away, out into the Pacific Ocean. It’s as if each set of waves that roll in cleanses your soul, taking your consciousness into that Northern Beaches state of mind.
The staff at Moby’s are all “beautiful people”. It’s as if they have all been conceived by angels. They are friendly and relaxed, and they are tuned into making guests feel totally welcome.
The venue is perched high above Whale Beach. The windows face the ocean and give sweeping, breathtaking views. It’s one of those situations where the outlook is always amazing, regardless of the weather. It’s just the light and colours that vary, whether it be sunny, overcast or stormy.
Food and service at this venue is always of the highest standard. The staff are “chilled” but switched on – a great combination.
As a room to play in (as a band), it’s always a pleasure. It’s a grand, open space with wooden floors. This is particularly good for acoustic based music. The timber floor gives the music an added resonance. A quirky feature is the curved ceiling. This also assists with the acoustics of the room. Parallel surfaces create acoustical problems. The floor and ceiling at Moby’s aren’t parallel, therefore these problems are avoided, giving the room superb acoustic qualities.
Often, when we play at Moby’s, buses are organised to get people back into town. This is a good model to follow, as a taxi fare back into the city would be expensive.
