On Saturday 14 October 2017, we are holding an event to support two much-loved community groups: Lifeline Northern Beaches and Queenscliff Surf Life Saving Club. United by their commitment to supporting the people of the Northern Beaches, these two organisations provide safety, strength and protection – just like the breakwater provides a safe harbour from the waves.


Join us for a night to remember, and help these organisations do what they do best: change lives for the better.







As part of the national Lifeline network, LLNB plays a crucial role providing phone counseling and suicide prevention services to those in crisis. LLNB has served the Northern Beaches for over 40 years, and operates with the support of around 600 dedicated volunteers.


Affectionately known as ‘Queensie’, the QSLSC has been providing surf life saving services to the local community since 1924. As well as providing valuable patrols, the club encourages people of all ages to live active, healthy lives through its social, team-based activities.

Mike is related to the last bushrangers in Australian history with his great-uncle Patrick Kenniff hanged in Brisbane’s Boggo Road jail in 1903 for killing a policeman and a station manager.



Triple Shot is THE premiere party band from Northern Beaches Sydney, boasting a jam-packed, versatile show that consistently elevates any event – from ambient acoustic all the way to high-octane dance party, Triple Shot packs a memorable punch!

Out front is singer/multi-instrumentalist Jason Crouch, originally from Austin Texas, with hot guitar licks and wide-ranging vocals, crooning early and rocking out late. With Sydney’s own 20-year veteran backbone Brian Dolly-bass & Matt Hamilton-drums, the unique blend of rock-n-roll America and Australia comes to life.

Triple Shot creates a heightened experience by delivering high-energy performances from all the great music genres: 60’s-70’s-80’s, Aussie, classic & contemporary. For those about to party, we salute you…
