“The river, the park, the arts centre and Watt combine to create a perfect backdrop for what has become an institution in Brisbane dance music culture..”
A lifetime appreciation and deep involvement with all aspects of music, through blues guitar to audio production, to the cutting edge of the modern day house sound, DJ Cool Hand Luke is one of Brisbane’s most experienced deejays with a perfect sound sensibility and a talent for social atmospherics.
Nowhere is his versatility and refined selection more apparent than in the club: low slung disco vibes in the lounge, big funky soulful tech house for the big room or bumpy jacking house for the side room.
Midweek, Brisbane DJ Cool Hand Luke can be found delivering a soulful and invigorating audio experience with a considerate and personal deep touch.
From heaving main rooms, to kicking side rooms, bars, boats and in between, and his 11-year Sunday session residency beside Brisbane’s beautiful New Farm Park, have shown Cool Hand Luke to be one of the country’s most respected DJ’s. Academic attention to detail and a definitively individual rhythm show Luke as a skilled and masterful addition to any club, event or corporate function.
DJ Coolhand Luke annually orchestrates the musical entertainment and performance for the Lord Mayors’ Bridge To Brisbane Fun Run and many other big events, functions, private parties and wedding DJ Events.

What is Luke’s Musical Repertoire?
Over a decade of intense club experience, through highly regarded long term residencies have shown Cool Hand Luke to be a knowledgeable and individual mood setter and record collector. Nowhere is his versatility and refined selection more apparent than his involvement with the heavy duty Family outfit. For many years the mainstay of the Lounge’s lofty, low tempo disco output with fellow funk and erotic boogie compadre Mr Sparkle. Not enough to hold fort at the bump and grind end of the house spectrum, Luke occasionally finds the Mainroom a suitable outlet for a cheeky take on the big room sound, and towards the end of The Family’s upstairs area, further explorations of the jacking and funky tech house sound led Coolhand Luke on more frequent and twisted excursions in the club’s infamous Uncle room.
Luke’s usual club dj sound would be best described as a house beat to stretch your legs to, or to stretch out on the lounge, a tribal jacking and funky tech house beat for the clubs, big soulful disco house treats and other good vibes for a party, retro 70s-80′s boogie… Even your own special selection of Polish lumberjack songs from the 1930′s if you want it. Whatever your taste, DJ Luke is the man for your event (Just ask corporate events at Brisbane City Council!)
