Specialising in weddings, corporate gigs and private parties, Slingo also offers basic DJ sets blending old classics with new hits to create an epic dance floor.

Cara's Birthday Party in Main beach gold coast, Feb 2024

Slingo was absolutely fantastic. We really liked how he walked around and interacted with the guests. He was super professional and truly went above and beyond for our event. He played the ukelele, the guitar, trumpet and sang - a man of many talents and is sure to entertain. Highly recommend!

Denise's Birthday Party in Broadbeach waters, Nov 2021

Mark was amazing at my husband’s 60th birthday. Such a talented and versatile performer. His song list was long and varied and he was very accommodating when we made specific requests. We’d recommend Mark for any party where you and your guests want to have fun and dance the night away! Thanks a million Mark. You made our night!
