Second Sound's trip to the bar and nightclub scene was a success! Saturday
nights on Montford Drive always prove a festive atmosphere at the many local bars -- and Maverick Rock Taco was no exception.
Open format party music was pumping on the bar's sound system as well as
my speaker inside and provided a great soundtrack for the evening's
celebrations. A young hip crowd was tapping their feet and having a good time
while management was seen to be singing along with the well known top 40 and
throwback party hits. Special guest Diane Esposito, owner of Split Second
Sound was even in attendance to enjoy the festivities! ~ via #SplitDJMichael... read more »
While many DJs offer additional lighting and other services as ‘add-ons’ for their DJ service packages, there is a recent trend to be aware of for any party host – the “all-in-one DJ”. It may sound like a great option to hire your photographer, videographer, photo booth, and DJ from the same company but unfortunately, the results don’t usually turn out how you hope.
Most reputable companies will be known for their specialty which should be hosting a great event and throwing an amazing party on the dance floor!

When researching potential vendors for any type of event, locate those vendors with specialties and hire them for only that service. Popular vendors often work on their ‘craft’ for years in order to come recommended by others. Be sure to trust the opinion of other vendors for recommendations as opposed to hiring one vendor to cover all the services you will need. By doing your research, you will protect yourself and your event from being disappointed.... read more »
Split Second Sound is known for two things: Game Day & Event DJs to the Carolina Panthers and being Charlotte’s Premier Private Event Entertainment Company. While most people associate the latter title with weddings, the SSS staff is involved in so much more!
As the new school year starts so does another one of our favorite times: school dance season. Being Charlotte Mecklenberg School approved, we are happy to be the primary DJ for many schools throughout the area. SSS has DJs working throughout the week which makes us readily available for a school day dance party!
Featuring party motivators, TVs for live video feeds or photo montages, uplighting and more, Split Second Sound will get the dance floor packed for any school.

Recently, one of Split Second Sound’s DJs took the covers of Carolina Bride (yes, both of them)! DJ LeVar ‘Mista LG’ Gladden wasn’t featured by name but two of his brides were. We love seeing our brides throughout Carolina Bride magazine in each release but this is the first time where the same DJ had two different brides making appearances on both the front and back covers of the same issue!
LeVar’s April 26th bride, Veronica Acut (now Getz) was featured on the front cover wearing a stunning Vera Wang gown. Inside the magazine, we can read all about Veronica and her groom, Chip’s beautiful reception which took place at Mint Museum Uptown. Other vendors included some of our favorites: Ashley at Graceful Host, Lindsay Reagan Thorne at Be Pretty and Jeremy Igo!
On the back cover of the magazine, Indigo photography featured LeVar’s upcoming September 20th bride and groom, Jenna Bertram and Adam Nygaard in an up close and personal engagement shoot. Jenna & Adam’s reception will be hosted at a beautiful venue (and another of Split’s favorites), Foundations for the Carolinas.
Digital versions of the Veronica & Chip's feature can be found on CarolinaBride.com ... read more »
