Live band at Erin’s wedding – Burnt Orange, Mosman

To describe Slide McBride as the best wedding band would be an understatement. Slide was very professional and a pleasure to work with in the lead up to our [twice rescheduled] wedding. The band exceeded our expectations on the day and were an integral component of the delightful and joyous atmosphere that pervaded our wedding. The band had everybody up and dancing all night long and our guests still regularly mention that ours was the best wedding they have ever been to. Do yourself a favour and don’t waste your money on a DJ or any other band – Slide McBride are guaranteed to make your wedding truly unforgettable in the best possible way.

Live band at Damian’s wedding in Armidale

Slide McBride are an amazing wedding band and we cannot recommend them highly enough. We had Slide, as part of a trio, play at our wedding in November in Armidale. They made the trip specially for us and we are so thankful. They helped contribute to what was a wonderful night for us. Slide has a great repertoire of music and musical instruments which he played at various points throughout canapes and our reception. The jazz numbers he played during dinner and around speeches was great background music and when it came time to party he had the whole crowd up and dancing. Slide has so much energy and he brought that to our wedding. After our wedding we had so many people comment on our band and how good they were. Numerous people had sore limbs after a big night dancing! Again we cannot recommend them highly enough. If you want a great band for your wedding, don’t hesitate to book Slide.

Live band for Clair’s sister’s birthday party in Manly

We had a fabulous party with Slide McBride playing with his band in Manly. This is about the 7th time I’ve enjoyed dancing the night away to his tunes. He plays to all different audiences. He is prompt in communicating and turned up when he said he would. Decent person too. Thank you so much.

Live band at Morgan’s birthday Party in Kings Cross

Slide McBride performed at my 50th recently and their performance was just amazing. Everyone who came are still talking about the incredible band performance and the fun that they had, and Slide and the team made the event so special. We were determined to go ahead with it after COVID spoiled the party last year, and Slide’s amazing performance really made the evening. I’m already trying to think of an excuse to book you and your team again!
