Dina Blazek,

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know what a great job Charlie did last night at our dj/band combo near Greenville.  Weddings are always challenging but also that fine line between a band and dj workin together and Charlie was certainly up to the task.  He was professional, timely, thoughtful and just overall has a great personality for this business. Thanks again, Dina

Lisa Pleasant Weddings,

Let me say how much I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mike last weekend. As I told him, he was very professional, a great personality/MC, and very good at reading the crowd and keeping things mixed up, especially in never playing a full song. I loved his style and he is definitely added to my preferred list!

Charlotte Vibe Photography,

I want to commend both your business and your employee Jonah Pearl. Though our business doesn’t do a ton of weddings, within about 60 seconds I had a great deal of respect for Jonah. He was a perfect vendor liaison and interacted with all guests very professionally.  After meeting him I was eager to get his card and learn more about the company in which I learned of your process for hiring and training and I commend you guys, you have a solid formula.  Keep up the good work and I’m sure many of your employees are great, but I’ll certainly be touting Jonah anytime I have the opportunity to any wedding clients we have.

Angela Bowen,

I wanted to take the opportunity to say what an awesome night we had last night at the Harrelson/Wuellner wedding!

I've worked several venues as well as attended several venues that have had a DJ, but I have to say that Jonah was by far the best that I've ever seen. He was not only professional but friendly, personable, and knew how to throw a party! The bride and groom danced all night till last call and could've danced for several hours past then they were having so much fun! We could not have picked a better DJ with Jonah and Cameron! 

I hope our paths cross again in the near future and look forward to working with you again.

Pyro Techniques,

I wanted to reach out to you today and tell you I had a great time working with Jonah Pearl during a wedding event on May 3rd. We did pyro during the wedding and a small show after the wedding and Jonah was a huge help!

Split Second Sound is on my list of DJs to contact due to the fact that he did so well and was so nice. Give this man a AAA rating because he deserves it!

The event went great and I could not have been happier with Jonah. He did a marvelous job and really read our crowd.  We weren’t a rowdy group and he was able to adjust his music to the wants of the guest.  Thank you all for providing a great experience!

Isabel's Corner (videographer) Amanda Pagano

April-01, 2010
Isabel's Corner (videographer) Amanda Pagano,

"Brides come to me a lot for advice on photography, entertainment, venues, and catering companies.  The biggest concern with newly engaged couples is "How do we choose the right vendor for us?"  When it comes to entertainment, I always tell brides that a DJ company can make or break your wedding video.  I've been to weddings where people would rather sit at their table than dance.  Or where the DJ had the wrong song for your first dance.  I've even been to weddings where the DJ was inappropriate with guests, and it affected the overall vibe of the wedding.  

 

With Split Second Sound, you don't get a DJ... you get entertainment!  That's the key ingredient to make a wedding go from ordinary to extraordinary.  Split Second Sound makes sure that they are professional and well prepared with the right materials to make your day flow seamlessly.  I have never filmed an event entertained by Split Second where I was bored!  Everyone is dancing, laughing, and generally having the time of their lives!  They make sure everyone, young and old, are living it up on the same floor at the same time.  Not many can do this!  It's more difficult than can be expected!  

 

With Split Second Sound, your day is all about YOU!  What YOU want!  I have never been to two events done by Split that were alike!  They avoid the cookie cutter wedding.  No two couples are alike...  why should your weddings be?  Their hard work and personalized dedication speaks for itself!"

Jennifer Wouters-Soiree Charlotte

April-01, 2010
Jennifer Wouters-Soiree Charlotte, Anytime my clients book with Split Second Sound, I am excited for the party, because I know the dance floor will be full!  Split Second’s staff is friendly, professional, trustworthy and knows how to throw a great party!  Vinny matches each client to a specific DJ based on the client’s personality.  So whether it is Levar making guests feel at ease with his infectious smile or Derek mixing music to keep the dance floor rocking, I know they will mesh well with my specific client.   A Bar or Bat Mitzvah with Neil and Eric is a blast of energy - with Neil in the back spinning the tunes and Eric out front interacting with the teenagers – the kids AND adults hit the floor.  Vinny works very closely with all of his DJs, so I know that each one will be proactive with the guests, play music tailored to the specific crowd, and work hard to please the client every time!  As a planner, I enjoy working with the crew, because they are such great people – I feel like I am working with trusted friends.  Everyone on staff is dedicated to their job and loves what they do.  They give it their all, so the hosts of the party can simply enjoy the celebration!
