Slide McBride is extremely versatile. As guests arrive, the band can start out by playing in their roving acoustic mode. Using an old brass megaphone to sing through, Slide takes the band back to the early days of jazz, performing from the repertoires of the likes of Louis Armstrong and Fats Waller. In this mode, the band is completely portable. Amplifiers are not required, so the band can move around and create quite an atmosphere as they engage your guests with their personality and style. In this mode they are perfect for outdoors (as electricity is not required) and being all acoustic means that the music never gets too loud.
Over dinner, enjoy the cool crooning sounds of jazz, lounge, swing and bossa nova. The band will be quiet enough not to intrude on your guest’s conversations, yet they will contribute to setting a sophisticated ambience to the room. Repertoire includes songs made famous by Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Burt Bacharach, Chet Baker and Harry Connick Jnr.
After dinner, let the dancing begin as the band morphs into their alter ego as an energetic and vibrant party band, playing from their pop, rock and dance repertoire. In this incarnation, the band plays songs from The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Kinks, James Brown, Pink, Scissor Sisters, The Killers, Hunters and Collectors, U2, Robbie Williams, Lenny Kravitz, Chili Peppers, Sneaky Sound System, Smashmouth, Queen, Billy Joel, Coldplay, Kiss, Powderfinger, Jamiroquai, Abba, Jet, Beastie Boys, Hoodoo Gurus, AC/DC, Bob Marley and Elvis (just to mention a few).
