29th May 2021     Cliff was one of the fastest responding and easy-going, accomodating suppliers we had for our wedding. Cliffhangers assigned DJ Sasha to our wedding based on our similar tastes in music, and he put on an incredible night of music for our guests which saw the dance floor full from start to finish – hard to beat that! Sasha was well dressed, animated, and his setup looked great within our venue. Cliffhangers were excellent value for money and we got exactly what we wanted with all of our must-play songs incorporated smoothly and our special songs like our reception entrance songs, cake cutting, first dance and bouquet toss going off without a hitch. We would definitely recommend Cliffhangers!

Really appreciate your companies services at the event, Your DJ was terrific and a really nice guy, and assisted to deliver exactly what we were after in that precinct area, he put everyone in the mood as they entered the stadium. The atmosphere created was more than we could’ve asked for!

There is a reason we keep having Cliff and the crew back!

Cliffhangers has supplied DJs for the Gold Coast Airport Marathon on course and at the start line for the past 10 years. There is a reason we keep having Cliff and the crew back! Their years of experience certainly shows and always puts my mind at ease. I can trust the job will always do a great job! They’re very professional and friendly. Cliffhangers will always be my first preference!

Brought tears to everyone’s eyes

Hi there, Just a quick email, (just arrived back to work) regarding your services which were provided for our wedding day on the 21/03/09 @ Kingscliff Beach Club. On behalf of my husband and the entire wedding reception, THANK YOU CLIFF HANGERS! Your Cliffhangers musician I didn’t even get to introduce myself nor thank you for your fantastic performance! Everyone has consistently raved about how great he was. He played my favourite pearl jam song “Black” which blew me away followed by numerous other songs which brought tears to everyone’s eyes. YOU WERE PERFECT! I could not have asked for a more talented and professional guitarist J thank you ever so much. Travis, what a bright and gorgeous man to have standing behind the DJ Box, thank you for tolerating my winging about leaving the reception, you also had people dancing on the dance floor who have never danced in public before J your charisma fitted in beautifully and again I cannot thank you enough! I will be highly recommending your services to anyone who asks J you were both fantastic and know that you both contributed to our wedding being a great success. A night we will never forget, gives me goose bumps just thinking about it! Again thank you Travis and Cliff Hangers you are wonderful xxxxxxxx



We had trouble getting people to leave

Hi Cliff, Just a few words to express my thoughts on a great 50th Birthday Party, had in Ashmore on 12 June 2010. Every guest was so excited to be able to choose their own songs and even sing along and everyone commented on what a great idea and that they hadn’t seen one in a while. The Juke box and the coloured ball created so much atmosphere we had trouble getting people to leave. The Juke box was still in full swing at 3am in the morning, lucky the neighbours are great. Thank you and keep up the good work and I hope that this small testimonial will help others decide on their next party. “IF YOU DONT TRY IT YOU WONT KNOW” Best of luck in your future entertainment and I hope you remember me when I turn 60 cause I will be back.

The best night of our lives!

Hi Cliff, I just wanted to touch base and let you know what a fantastic job Danny did at our M. H. Murwillumbah wedding on September 24th. We were so impressed with him and would happily recommend Danny and Cliffhangers to friends. Danny was extremely professional. He was well presented for the occasion, he was very accommodating meeting all of our wishes and he was polite to all of our guests, even the irritating ones! We were thrilled to have a full dance floor all night and credit this to Danny’s intuitive ability to read the crowd. He kept the party pumping all night and for this we are very thankful. Please extend our sincere thanks to Danny for helping us enjoy the best night of our lives! Our guests all thought that he was great.

Kirsty & John G


He listened to me… and didn’t play the Chicken Dance!

I’m really particular about music, Cliff Hangers DJ were really accommodating to all my requests. I told him all the songs I didn’t want like the chicken dance and any Ed Sheeran songs and that I mostly wanted 80s music. He was so good and everything he picked was perfect. I loved how flexible he was.

Loved the trip down memory lane

We celebrated my hubbys 50th birthday in the style of the 60s theme… Cliff was our DJ for the night and certainly kept to the theme, the music was fantastic. All our guests were happy and loved the trip down memory lane. We wouldn’t hesitate in using Cliffhangers again and hope to do so for our Halloween party later in the year…. Thank you again Cliff a great night was had by all.

The Cocktail slushie was a big hit

Hi Cliff, Sorry for not emailing you sooner. We just wanted to thank you for such great service you and your team provided for our 25th Wedding Anniversary Party on the 19th September. The Juke box really made the evening for us and all our guests, the Cocktail slushie was a big hit too. The fact that there was a minor issue with the seal on the slushie was not a big problem as you came and fixed it straight away. I would recommend your company to anybody wanting to hire from you. Replies from my first enquiry by email to service at delivery and pickup was exemplary, we couldn’t of asked for any better from you. Thanks again

We danced our heart out

I planned to throw a grand party in favor of my brothers promotion at work. I made suitable arrangements for the event: food, beverages and decoration. The only thing that was left was music system. Since, the party had young visitors and youth were the hosts, so I decided to hire some cool Dj Service. Cliffhangers seemed to be the perfect choice for the event. I made bookings with them for the day. It was a great fun at the party with Cliffhangers; they played all the while the hit music to the tunes of which we danced our heart out…thanks Cliffhangers

The jukebox & karaoke made the night sensational

We had a fabulous 60th birthday at Bundall with about 40 people the jukebox & karaoke made the night sensational thanks to Cliffhangers for making it so great.



Professional, fun and thoroughly entertaining

Thank you for your amazing DJ service that was provided for our New Year’s Eve Ball 2013/14. Your man was fun, warm, approachable and entirely flexible with whatever crazy plans we came up with during the course of the evening. He had to play to a varied crowd with very differing tastes and managed the near impossible in that he kept everybody happy. I mean everybody! At times I think he was having as much fun as our party goers and he really did become part of the party! Professional, fun and thoroughly entertaining I can thoroughly recommend this service!
