Two Bands in One
"Cool jazz, cocktail and lounge music, lively party, pop and rock covers"
While one repertoire ranges from Louis Armstrong to Tony Bennett, Sinatra to Jobim, and Miles Davis to Burt Bacharach ...
THE OTHER ranges from Elvis to the Stones, Franki Valli to Barry White, Anastasia, Madison Avenue, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Kravitz, Blink 182 and Offspring.
Add the two together and you get entertainment for everyone. That's entertainment with a capital "E"!
Slide McBride is more than a band. They are experienced entertainers who can read and communicate with an audience. They are masters at creating the right vibe at the right time. The band works as a solid unit giving a cohesive sound, often lacking in so many other bands. While Slide McBride has done over a thousand weddings, they have also performed as the support act for Mr Tony Bennett and Al Jarreau. They perform regularly at the Hilton Hotel's Marble Bar and other venues around Sydney.
The band is:
Slide McBride - vocals/trombone/cornet/blues harp/bass
Rod McFarland - acoustic bass/electric bass/vocals
Paul Carter - drums/vocals
Martin Cilia - guitar
