Split Second Sound was recommended by a family friend for my daughters wedding. I must say that it was spot on a great recommendation. We met with Vinny the owner and discussed our requirements. Vinny chose Jonah to be our DJ, but Jonah was more than that, he was an entertainer and kept the party rolling all night. SSS has a very good process. They have an online form the client can utilize to document song choices, wedding party names and roles as well as phonetic spelling of the names to ensure correcct pronunciation. Jonah also met personally with the bride and groom shortly before the wedding to finalize the agenda. Jonah was the emcee for the evening and everything went like clockwork. I was told he is the most requested entertainer, and I can see why. The DJ can either make or break your event, choosing Split Second Sound will be one of the best vendor decisions you can make.
One of my top ten wedding requirements was that once the dance floor opened up, it stayed packed for the rest of the night. Split Second Sound make sure this happened! Our DJs were great MCs and really kept the party going. While we debated over a band v. a dj, we both agree now that we made the right choice!
I have nothing but good things to say about working with the SSS office group and our DJ day of - Dennis. The office group was quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. Vinny sat down with us for our introduction meeting and we felt comfortable enough to book SSS as soon as we got home. From our first face to face meeting, working with Dennis was reassuring (which is great for any bride!), professional, and fun. We couldn't have asked for more. Dennis was very thoughtful and thorough when going through our music selections and day of schedule. He was an absolute neccesity day of, reminding us of schedule and explaining things calmly on a day there is a lot going on. Beyond that, he was a fun guy with a great sense of humor. Best of all, everyone at the wedding had a blast! I would reccomend SSS to anyone.
After meeting with Vinny and comparing his company to another DJ company, I knew Split Second Sound would be the perfect company to rock our wedding. Their online system and administrative assistants make communication with the company very easy.
The DJ we were ultimately assigned was overall very good.
At first he was great by responding to all our emails. After meeting with him we had our doubts whether he was a great fit for us for various reasons, including: he only responded to each email after a follow-up was sent and the first draft of the timeline looked nothing like what we had discussed during our meeting and submitted online.
We liked and appreciated that he played all our must-play songs and stuck to the do-not-play guidelines we provided him with. He smoothly transitioned from song to song and whenever the dance floor was getting too empty, he changed the song without making it sound awkward. He played no slow songs at all, which we thought was too bad.
Unfortunately, at the end of the night he made me feel extremely uncomfortable. Despite knowing that I did not want to be in the center, dancing for everyone, he announced at the end of the night that my husband and I would dance in the middle of the dance floor to the final song of the night and everyone was supposed to form a circle around this. This was never discussed and made me extremely uncomfortable. Thankfully he realized he had made a bad choice and tried to remedy it as good as he could.
Albeit the little hick-ups outlined above, I whole heartedly recommend Split Second Sound to everyone who wants to have a great wedding reception with a full dance floor.
We hired Split Second Sound to be the DJ at our wedding reception and we could not have been happier with our choice. We went into the day confident after having almost every one of our other wedding vendors how awesome this company is. Plus, we met with our DJ, Vinny, prior to our wedding to go through the details and we left feeling very pleased with our decision to go with this company. Vinny did a fantastic job deejaying our wedding!! There were people on the dance floor the whole night, which is exactly what we wanted. Everyone at our wedding had a blast and the music was a big reason for that. Having a great DJ was one of the most important things for us when we planned our wedding and we definitely felt like we got exactly what we hoped for! Definitely recommend Split Second Sound!
We had seen our DJ at a wedding that we attended prior to ours. We immediately knew that this was the company we wanted to go with. Rashad was very friendly and really engaged our crowd. That was the reason we chose to work with him. This is a great company. They handled our requests and we had fun throughout the entire day. I would recommend them to anyway. Ask for Rashad, he's awesome.
We would like to say thank you to Split Second Sound and especially to our DJ Jonah Pearl and Bradley. We were so amazed by how awesome they were in preparing for our wedding and executing everything flawlessly on the day of. We had the best time of our lives and all our guests had a blast on the dance floor. Jonah and Bradley were so professional and made sure everyone had a good time. We were so impressed with everything and cannot thank them enough for everything they did. They are absolutely the best and we are so happy we found this company to DJ our wedding at the Ritz in Charlotte.
Jonah and Split Second Sound did such a wonderful job- top notch customer service all around!
I loved, loved Jonah!! He was or DJ from Split Second Sound and he was incredible. He kept the reception moving, he was so fun and involved I couldn't have asked for anything more!I loved how he called us to get to know or personalities and asked us what was important for us to have on or day. I had such a great experience!
We were so so impressed with Charlie! He was absolutely amazing! I could not have asked for anything more, he went above and beyond and kept the wedding going smoothly. He was more than just a Dj. So much more. He kept the party going and was amazing on all of my request for the ceremony on music played and when and where to start the music especially with not rehearsing it. That was one of the most important things to me, the walk down the isle to my choice music and how picky I was to the start and stop. I just can't go on enough on how great Charlie was! In fact my bridesmaid just got engaged and has Charlie's info they most definetly will be using y'all's company and Charlie as their wedding Dj. I hope this helps! And let me know if I can do anything to help with y'all's business! Thank you so much!
My experience with Spilt Second Sound was GREAT!! Joey was our DJ and he was absolutely amazing!! We had a wonderful wedding and a wonderful party with the help of Joey!! He listened to everything my husband and I requested and delivered!! The guests had a wonderful time and danced the night away but more importantly WE danced the night away! He was always looking out for us and making sure we were happy and that things were moving along smoothly. If you want to have an amazing PARTY and also amazing people to work with choose Spilt Second Sound!!!!
Split Second Sound made my wedding, cocktail hour and reception awesome!!!! Steve B. and his assistant did an awesome job! My guests said they were the best DJ they had ever heard at a wedding. Everybody had a great time!! and everybody danced at some point during the night! There was not a time the dance floor was empty!! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a DJ for a wedding or other event! I could not be happier with how my wedding day went!!!
From the time I met with Vinnie to signing the contract, to meeting with Steve, to our wedding day was so easy and hassle free. You really take care of your customers!!
I do not have a single negative thing to say about Split Second Sound. From the first phone call with Vinnie, to the last conversation with my DJ Steve at our wedding everything was wonderful.
Split Second Sound has multiple DJs that you can pick from or you can let them pick one for you based on the type of reception you want. We let them pick for us, and they gave us Steve B, and I could not have been happier with their selection. Steve is the type of person that after the event is over you want him to be your neighbor so you can hang out with him every weekend.
From my first phone call with Steve he made all of my worries and nervousness go away. When we met him in person it was even better. He is very funny, very personable but still down to earth. The best part about Steve was he listened to what we wanted to be played, and the types of music we listen to. There were a lot of specific songs we were not sure about, and we trusted him to pick those songs for us based on his knowledge and the feeling he got from us. For every song choice we left blank, he picked the perfect song.
He has a tremendous knowledge of music, all different types and styles. We wanted the important songs in our wedding to be different, so we tried to pick songs that are not your normal wedding songs. Every song we brought up made Steve excited, and he was completely on board with whatever we wanted.
During the wedding he went around to all of the tables and talked to all of the guests. He not only asked what music they wanted to hear but he also got to know them a little. This allowed him to make jokes throughout the night while connecting with my guests. He went above and beyond the "average DJ". He also got concerned when not many people were dancing, but as my sister said, its not that they weren't having fun, they just weren't dancers. He was definitely doing his job as an entertainer.
Steve also made sure we were in the room when he played our "must play" songs. He really made sure that the Bride and Groom were happy along with the guests.
Split Second Sound is a great vendor, and I highly recommend Steve B as the lead DJ. He was perfect for our wedding, and it makes me want to throw another event just to have him come back and DJ again.
Thank you SSS for giving us a truly perfect wedding reception! Every detail was taken care of and we had a stress-free event that exceeded our expectations! Steve was fabulous and truly made our reception one our guests can't stop talking about! Highly recommended!
We used Split Second Sound for our wedding on May 3rd and they were FANTASTIC to work with! We had Jonny Piscitelli as our DJ and he was WONDERFUL. We met with him ahead of time and he couldn't have been more friendly. He has a super deep radio voice, making him the perfect DJ announcer. He has years of experience and a high level of energy which kept our crowds up and moving. All of the music was fantastic and everyone had an amazing time. The price is well worth the end results. You will NOT be disappointed with Split Second Sound. They're the best in the business!
While there is undoubtedly no aspect of the wedding planning process that is unimportant, music and entertainment was one of the highest priorities on our list. Our number one goal for our wedding reception was that we and all of our guests had a blast. In my experience, the DJ can either make or break a party, and has a strong influence to ensure that the right types of memories are being made. That being said, we were so glad to have been referred to Split Second Sound. After speaking with Vinny Esposito about his company and what they have to offer, the decision was an easy one – not only was Split Second Sound the clear choice, but I knew that I would do whatever it took to have Vinny at our wedding.
Vinny has a strong level of professionalism, and truly works to understand how to please their clients individually. We had a jam packed dance floor for the entire duration of the entire reception thanks to Vinny accommodating to what we wanted to hear, as well as what he found that would get our guests moving! We never wanted the party to end. I could go on incessantly raving about how he gave us the party of a lifetime.
Through Split Second Sound, we also utilized their services for up-lighting which was stunningly beautiful and created an elegant ambiance to the ballroom, and they also provided us with a gobo on the dance floor using our monogram, which added even more of a wow-factor.
Vinny and the entire team at Split Second Sound have been an absolute pleasure to work with. He has been an asset to our entire wedding experience. I would recommend Split Second Sound, especially Vinny Esposito at the utmost highest level.
First of all, let me apologize for taking so long to post this. However, simply thanking Split Second Sound, LeVar and Demar would not have been enough. However, it has been hard to piece together the right words to truly show our appreciation for each of you and your hard work around our wedding and reception.
From the first phone call, LeVar was nothing less than professional and informative. He provided me with every detail I could have needed and you asked the questions that were needed to get us thinking about what we really wanted out of a DJ at our wedding. The night we met to go over things was incredible. He took time to get to know Willis and I and then he took that information and used it to help us make song selections that would make our event perfect for us. LeVar suggested songs we would never have thought of and they were perfect. I also love the time he put into making sure you could pronounce each of the names within our bridal party - there were some tricky ones.
The day of the wedding - WOW!! The lights LeVar and Demar setup at the ceremony were the PERFECT final touch to making that room incredible!!! I am so glad LeVar thought to suggest them. They did an amazing job queuing each of the songs throughout the ceremony and making the music run flawlessly. Then the reception started... I can't tell you how much fun LeVar made the introductions of the bridal party. He kept everything moving smoothly and perfectly from the intros to the first dance to the dance with the parents to the cake cutting, toast, etc. Then, THEY really got the party started like no one else could have. LeVar shifted songs as needed to keep it all rolling and he even provided a "public service announcement" so that we could all prepare for the groom and his groomsmen to show off their Jordans (although I was still not prepared for what happened next). :-) Demar was phenomenal at keeping the partying going by being on the dance floor and keeping everything moving. These guys really were amazing and truly set the tone for our entire reception.
I wish I could tell you how many of our guest commented and bragged about our exceptional DJs! They all loved that LeVar and Demar came around to speak to them and found out what kind of songs they would want to dance to. The interaction they provided with all of the guests was amazing, well received and appreciated.
From the beginning of wedding planning for us, our goal was to make sure the reception was an all out party. Thanks to LeVar and Demar, it was nothing short of that. Our wedding reception would have never been the success it was had it not been for Split Second Sound.
I truly hope LeVar and Demar know how much we enjoyed having them as a part of our big day. The memories that they helped to create will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
To be honest, my fiance and I were hesitant to use such a large company for our DJ, we were scared we would get lost in the shuffle. This wasn't the case at all. They sent us e-mails, keeping us on track with song selection and providing information as needed. Then we got to meet our DJ Johah, and he was so great. We were lucky to get him, since we did a Friday night wedding, options and pricing were really great! Jonah was nice, professional, and really knew his music. We were still unsure about a lot of music selections and helped guide us with making those decisions. He always followed up in a timely manner and was wonderful about double checking details and timing of events for the big day.
On our wedding day, he did everything we asked, checked in with me a couple of times to make sure we were happy and even jumped out on the dance floor to teach a couple of dances! Several people told us our wedding was one of the most fun they had been to! We would recommend Split Second Sound and Jonah without hesitation!
I really enjoyed working with Split Second Sound. They do a great job of getting clients on board and have a professional system for getting all your information. I enjoyed my initial meetings with the DJ they assigned to me. However, he was not all that I heard this company hyped up to be. As the dance floor was dying he continued to play slow and unengaged songs. I truly enjoyed my reception but felt the DJ provided did not meet my expectations.
They were a great company to work with! We were not local, so they did a great job of having phone meetings with us! The online form helped make things go smoother since they have suggestions in the form or you can pick your own. Rashaad was great fun! He listened to my requests and even told my sister no after she requested a song I told them specifically not to play. Very understanding and easy to work with!
