He was in the choir for a few years as a child and his mom was a piano player, so music was a part of his life very early on. At Ben’s brothers wedding in 2008, Vinny approached him about joining Split as he felt he was a natural entertainer. After being at another Split wedding in early 2009, Ben joined the team. Ben won the "2011 Rising Star" award for DJ assistants and is consider to be one of Split's top assistant.

He grew up dancing and he even participates in a martial art called Capoeira, which helped him develop some incredible moves! He is very out going and he doesn't have a shy bone in his body. Bradley is also a DJ who can beat mix and MC, but still loves to get out there with the party guests.

He couldn’t help but bring it along with him when he moved to New York City.  For the past five years, Demar has been DJ’ing along the East Coast of the U.S. and has found a passion for all styles of music, from Hip-hop to country and everything in between. Demar always says, "Music is powerful because we attach so many memories to songs.  When we hear a certain song, we cannot help but go back to that moment." Demar's goal as a DJ is to connect special events in people’s lives to the music they love!

Jennifer’s decision to join the Split Second Sound family was a “no brainer” as mentioned it had been something she had wanted to do for quite some time. As an entertainer, Jennifer approaches weddings as a collaboration between us and the bride and groom.  She stated, “There is no greater satisfaction than to be able to watch every detail of a wedding come together perfectly while everyone has a blast.”  She feels truly blessed to be a part of the moments that ultimately shape the unforgettable events in people’s lives.
