When I first booked Split Second Sound, I was a little hesitant. When I dreamt of my wedding day, I always imagined I would have a band. After several recommendations and an initial meeting with Vinny, the founder and owner, I knew I made the right decision. Vinny and his... Read More staff are professional, fun and absolutely brilliant at what they do. He communicated with me clearly and effectively through my engagement and called me a week before the big day to confirm all the details. I had one request for Vinny... coming from a small town, I was concerned that out-of-town guests would be uncomfortable dancing. I had an image of an empty dance floor with people blankly staring at each other as club music roared in the background. I couldn't have been more wrong. Vinny kept people on their feet from start to finish, playing everything from funk to Top 40 hits! People were dancing, laughing and having an absolutely blast. One month later and people are still raving about what a party the wedding was. But what's best about Vinny and Split Second Sound is that they make the wedding day effortless. They made sure that my husband and I, along with our wedding party, knew exactly where to be and when so we didn't have to stress over details and timelines. If you're considering booking Split Second Sound, do so immediately! I guarantee you won't be disappointed. They are hands down the best DJ professionals in Charlotte, and probably the state.

When we started planning for our wedding reception, we knew that good music was a key component to having the fun family party that we envisioned.  Choosing a DJ that could get the night going and keep up the energy was important and Split Second Sound exceeded our expectations... Read More in every way. The process started with an introduction call with the company owner, Vinnie.  He walked us through the Split Second philosophy, planning process, and contracts.  After signing the contract, we had access to an online planning platform that allowed us to create a timeline for the evening and choose music that fit our vision.  We had check in calls with the team at Split Second Sound to make sure we didn't have any questions or additional needs. Payments were handled professionally and the process was very easy.  The week of our wedding, we spent time with our DJ, Jonny, who helped us finalize a timeline that would keep things moving so the evening would keep building up to a dance floor filled with friends and family. The day of the wedding, Jonny delivered.  We don't just mean played some good music, kept us on schedule...this was top-of-the-line service that went above and beyond what we imagined.  Jonny and his assistant talked with our family and friends during dinner service to get their requests.  He kept special dances, cake cutting, toasts, and other special touches on schedule so that our guests had lots of time to dance.  Once everyone was up, most people did not sit down!  The party was going so strong, that we decided to extend our contract by an extra hour, which was extremely easy to do in the moment. It has been more than a month since our wedding and our guests are still talking about that night.  "The most fun wedding we have EVER attended," "The BEST music," and "I think I am STILL recovering from dancing" are all common phrases from our family and friends.  We have Jonny and Split Second Sound to thank for this! Brides and Grooms, if you want a company that will help you create YOUR perfect evening, look no further.  Split Second Sound will deliver from the first phone call through the follow up after your big day. --Jim & Kristen, married September 17, 2016

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... Read More 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.

Split Second Sound was one of those decisions we made about our wedding and then never looked back or second guessed. YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH SPLIT SECOND SOUND - we've been to several weddings that have used them and they have all been outstanding (specifically Levar, Jonah... Read More and Joey). Jonah was our DJ and he had people on the dance floor all night! We wrote personal intros for our wedding party, which he delivered like he was announcing at a NBA basketball game!

- LeVar We could not have asked for a better DJ/Emcee for our wedding. LeVar was everything we wanted. His ability to connect with the crowd, keep the party going, and play music of all genres/generations was incredible. He walked around to different tables at the beginning to... Read More meet the guests and get a feel for the type of people in attendance, and that went a long way in making sure as many people were constantly out on the dance floor as possible. He was such a pleasure and joy to work with and I would recommend him to anyone. Something that stood out to us and is a great representation of the type of guy LeVar is - we had an uninvited guest show up in the middle of dancing. Without missing a beat, LeVar noticed this person, recognized he did not belong, and notified someone immediately. We didn't even know about this until everything was over! So with LeVar, you get an amazing DJ, a great entertainer, a stand up guy, and added security!

Overall, working with SSS was great. They were always friendly, professional, and personable. Music was very important to my husband and I - we love it! So, we worked very hard filling out their detailed form and reviewing everything with our DJ in person. Unfortunately, I was... Read More disappointing to some degree on the day of. Most of our "must play" songs were not played, certain ones we wanted played towards the end of the night were played at the beginning of the night, and our last song of the night was never played - a song our friends and ourselves had discussed about for YEARS! There were other mishaps such as our ceremony exit song playing from the middle of the song onward instead of the beginning, and the SAME thing happening during our first dance. BUT - I will say, these are things mostly we noticed, not our guests. Our guests had a great time! I hate having to write a somewhat negative review because I had high hopes for SSS, they were one of our vendors we really invested in. I feel like we could have gotten the same day-of experience with a less expensive vendor.
