Dykes On Bikes Black & White Ball

Dykes On Bikes Sydney present the Black & White Ball - an amazing night of dancing, comedy and entertaining acts.

With performances by:

  • The hilarious Hannah Gadsby - comedian/writer/art lady!
  • Shelly Silberman, inaugural Mardi Gras Lip Sync Duels Winner 
  • Our very own Jonnie and Co are waiting to surprise you
  • Rockin' blues and rockabilly tunes from That Redhead (Sirens Big Band and the Sydney Festival)
  • Special Guest MC on the night - Cate McGregor
  • DJ Kelly Chrome

Don't forget our traditional best-dressed competitions too!

This year's Black and White Ball will raise money towards The Pinnacle Foundation and the Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby.


The DOB Committee is super excited to announce that Comedian/ Writer/ Art Lady Hannah Gadbsy will be performing for us live on the night!

Hannah is an award-winning Australian comedian who has delighted audiences all over the world. Hannah thinks quick and moves slow. She is sardonic, laconic and, after numerous bone crunching accidents, bionic. Hannah’s droll delivery and heart-breakingly funny, self-deprecating observations will have you trying not to pee in your black and white best.

In addition to Hannah’s exclusive appearance at the 2015 DOB Black and White Ball we have That Redhead and Band lined up to keep you twirling the night away and swaying for joy.

Fresh from the Ashes 2015 assault (on us), the legendary, intelligent and incredibly charming Cate McGregor AM will be looking after us as MC. With Cate on the throttle the night is sure to run as smooth as a properly lubed drive-chain.
