We have Sydney’s best reputation as a wedding band. No other band in Sydney have our versatility, adaptability and energy – the  3 essential elements for an outstanding wedding band.

Hey Slide, why should I hire your band for my wedding?

Unforgettable memories are what I create with my band whenever we perform at weddings. Brides and grooms typically say that their family and friends had the best time ever due to the contribution we made. 
We provide live music for all parts of your wedding, from the ceremony to pre-dinner drinks. From dining right through to dancing and partying. We are engaging and our music appeals to all age groups. We play multiple styles of music, from 1920’s jazz, to crooning swing classics, to Brazillian bossa nova and latin music, right through to classic party music from 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s & 00’s. 

You book the band directly through me. This is of great advantage when discussing song requests, logistics and options. I am the singer, multi-instrumentalist & band-leader, so you can get a straight answer for every question. My expertise and experience is second to none.

Having heard Slide McBride play at functions previously, when we were deciding what music and style of music for our wedding reception, including pre-dinner drinks and canapes, we didn’t look any further than booking Slide McBride. We hired a 3 piece band which worked well at our intimate reception with the band playing out on the deck for our guests while they enjoyed pre-dinner drinks and canapes. Light background jazz music hit the spot during dinner service and then things really cranked up with all the guests hitting the dance floor for a bit of boogy-ing! Highly entertaining, Slide McBride were a hit with all our guests, from youngsters through to the older members of our family. We’d book them again in a heartbeat!

We were torn between a wedding band and a DJ – turns out we found the complete package! Slide was an absolute highlight of our reception, he and his band had everyone up and dancing before the mains were served. He performed solo for part of the evening, accompanied by his band in the latter part of the night, and finished as a DJ. This variety allowed us to tick all the boxes for an entertainer. The vibe of the night was perfect. If you have been unsure of your wedding entertainment up until now, let this review sway you. He is the real deal! Slide – we cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful evening!

Slide and band made our wedding unforgettable! We have had non-stop comments from family and friends about how amazing their performance was and how they involved themselves in the crowd. Also a massive kudos for learning our wedding song which was not an easy one a few weeks out from our big day!
