Testimonials

5 August 2017 "We were so pleased with Split Second Sound, both the process leading up to and the night of our wedding could not have went better. The organization and attention to detail the VIP portal offered was a huge plus. The guidance we received from Jonah in the weeks leading up to and during the wedding gave us a great deal of peace of mind. Jonah did an amazing job all night as MC (especially with "The Shoe Game") and kept the evening flowing very well. One of our concerns going in was that we, along with many of our guests, are not normally comfortable on the dance floor. Somehow, Jonah and his team managed to keep the dance floor full the entire night! If there is such a thing as wedding whisperer, he is it! Jonah, his team and Split Second Sound definitely exceeded any expectation we had."

Nolan & Ruth Mast

27 July 2017 "My husband and I got married on a Thursday (July 27th) at Carrigan Farms in Mooresville. Before we were even engaged, we knew that if and when the time came for us to marry, that Jonah Pearl at SSS would be our DJ! Jonah does not disappoint! He was the DJ for 2 of our friends weddings so we knew his style. He is friendly, personable, helpful and understanding! My husband and I listen to different types of music and we knew that our guests as well preferred a variety of music. Jonah picked songs that everyone knew and liked! He was very helpful when it came time to pick songs that I didn't even realize I needed songs for- he offered many suggestions and listened to my concerns. Another thing we love about Jonah is the way he leads the reception- from introductions, to toasts, to cake cutting, etc...Jonah takes lead and just has that "ladies and gentlemen" voice that sounds very professional. Now Chris- I did not meet Chris before the wedding but knew that Jonah would have someone from SSS accompany him. Chris was WONDERFUL! He had everyone on the dance floor, showing us new line dances that we hadn't learned before. Our guests keep talking about how much fun they had at the wedding and I know that its mostly because of Jonah and Chris! What a great team!!! Thank guys so much!! I definitely recommend SSS for your wedding DJ!"

Tyler & Stacy Matthews

2 January 2015 Jonah with Split Second Sound was our wedding DJ. Prior to the wedding we met to get to know each other and Jonah was sincerely interested in us as a couple. We had a lot of songs we wanted to hear during our reception and he played every one of them. Our dance floor was packed - Young to Old, people had a blast! I would absolutely only hire and refer Split Second Sound to all my engaged friends. Vinny, the owner, worked with us and helped us book the perfect package and schedule Jonah. Jonah felt like, and now is, a friend. He was a DJ and MC and our supportive friend at our wedding. Jonah went above and beyond for us even helping us decide wedding ceremony songs. We can't wait to have our next big party so he can be our DJ again! Great, Great, GREAT time!

We couldn't have been happier with you [Split Second Sounds]! You made the reception so much fun and we really appreciate all the little personal touches you put in. I knew there wouldn't be trouble getting me on the dance floor, but got the crowd on their feet (even those I never thought would be up there) and everyone was having an absolute blast dancing together.

The flow of music throughout the evening was spot-on too. People were singing along while eating dinner. Nobody ever felt like they were just sitting around waiting. Every single bit of the night was perfect and there was never a dull moment.

I'll admit I was a little nervous at first about the idea of inviting guests to request songs. There was even one song that came on where I thought, "who would request this?" But then I saw a group of our parents' friends out on the dance floor (because you played one of their requests) having more fun than they've had in years and it made it all worth it. Their dances were so funny that we our friends from college, etc. all joined in and it was a great highlight of the night

I totally get it now. You're a genius!

The general consensus among guests has been that it was the most fun wedding they've ever been to --- even our married friends. Two of Damien's groomsmen have literally never come close to the dance floor at any other wedding... they spent at least an hour dancing at ours! We are so happy with how everything came together; and we REALLY loved the Anniversary Dance you recommended. It turned out to be such a sweet moment. You are the absolute best and we appreciate everything.

Damien & Meredith Monaghan

15 April 2016 From the first time we were at a party with Split Second Sound we knew we wanted this company to be our DJ. They were professional, got the crowd involved in the song selection, got everyone dancing and most importantly everyone had a great time! Jonah was our DJ and he was truly amazing. He met with my husband and I about a month before the wedding where we finalized so many things my husband and I hadn't even thought of. Jonah even helped put together a mashup for my mother and I to dance to - he was so patient with me as I had him edit it at least 5 times. The night of the wedding Jonah was there on time and immediately went to work - keeping the crowd engaged as we were running about 15 minutes behind (with a minor family emergency). Other than that Jonah worked with us that night and helped keep the night running smoothly. I would definitely recommend Split Second Sound and ask for Jonah!!

I loved split second sound! Jonah was our DJ and we are still getting compliments on how great the music was. I was concerned because I wanted everyone to dance all night and have fun. Jonah delivered this and more. They went around to the tables and asked people for music suggestions and people were so happy because the music the requested was played. The dance floor was never empty. Me and my husband has different music tastes and we couldn't agree on a first dance song so Jonah was able to put together a song that mixed my song choice and my husbands and a third song to get people to dance with us. we have a friend that likes to sing and we wanted him to be able to sing at our wedding so I e-mailed my DJ and asked him if it would be possible and he was able to rework our time line and found the song for him to sing and it was no problem! Anything we asked they were willing to help with. You want to take some photos that look out over the city, no problem they will let you use their roof top. This DJ company is worth the money they are professional and know exactly what to do to get people moving. And are perfect if you don't have a wedding planner, just someone helping you, because they did a timeline for my wedding from the time it started until the last song everything was timed and we were able to stick with it even with the rain that threatened to pour down on us. I would recommend this company for all weddings and not just the owner Vinny he has some amazing people that work for him!

If I could give split second sound 10 stars I would!!!! Jonah was our main DJ and there was not a single dry or boring moment at our reception. Our guests really got into dancing, which I wasn't really expecting and I know it was all because of Jonah and the split second sound team. He was so nice and was an absolute pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a super entertaining DJ!!!

Matthew & Ashley Caffey

28 May 2016

In my opinion, a DJ is one of (if not the most) important part of a wedding.  Jonah and the entire SSS team was amazing from start to finish.  Jonah asked all of the right questions, and met with us before to make sure we had all of the details set.  When the wedding day came, nothing went wrong....it was amazing.  Jonah felt the crowd and played wonderful songs all night, as well as gave us the reception feel we wanted.  I would HIGHLY recommend this DJ service (especially Jonah).

For anyone that wants their wedding DJ to be interactive, crowd-pleasing, and have everyone out on the dance floor from start to finish - Jonah is your guy. We couldn't be more satisfied with the whole Split Second Sound experience. Jonah set up a meeting to go over all of the logistics of the wedding and was incredibly helpful with all of his suggestions for the ceremony music, cocktail hour, wedding party introductions, and really killed it with his mix at the reception. During dinner, he walked over to each table and introduced himself and asked what kind of music everyone likes and if they had any requests. People went out of their way the next day to tell us how awesome our DJ was.


Our reception was exactly how we pictured it and we have Jonah to thank for that!

Alex & Nicole Fink

30 April 2016 There are not enough words to describe the amazing experience we had with Jonah through Split Second Sound. From the moment we went to meet them, we were warmly welcomed and clearly explained what made Split Second stand out from other DJs. We felt extremely secure that they wanted us to have our dream wedding as much as we did. They even opened their uptown building up to us again for our engagement pictures! 

We were thrilled to book Jonah after hearing he was the best by everyone we spoke to. He certainly did not disappoint! Jonah immediately contacted us to ensure we understood how to fill out the form that included our likes and dislikes of music. When it came closer to the big day, he made sure to touch base before meeting with us in person to finalize all the details. Jonah’s expansive knowledge of music made it easy for us because he knew of everything and could easily make suggestions that fell in line with our personality.

On our wedding day, Jonah was exactly what you would hope for in a DJ. He interacted with guests asking for their recommendations and got the party started very quickly. Everyone was thrilled when they heard the song they had requested. Friends and family were on the dance floor until the very last moment! Since our wedding day we have heard from countless guests how much they enjoyed Jonah and how amazed they were at his DJing abilities! 


My husband and I would highly recommend Split Second Sound!

Split Second Sound is hands-down the best and go-to DJ in the Charlotte area for weddings (and I've been to a lot!). For my own wedding, they were so easy, pleasant, and professional to work with - from our first meeting where they really try to get a sense of the atmosphere you're looking to create to the pricing and packages (lots of great, affordable options) to pairing us with the perfect DJ to our pre-wedding meeting with our personal DJ to the big day. Our DJ was Jonah and I cannot say enough about how professional, fun, and nice he was and how personal he made our experience. He involved the guests in song selection in a discreet, non-annoying way (e.g. no announcing that he's taking requests) and had the ENTIRE room on the dance floor for the majority of the reception. I've recommended SSS and Jonah to every friend getting married in the Charlotte area and several who attended our wedding proactively asked for our DJ information.

Our DJ from Split Second Sound, Jonah Pearl, was outstanding. He truly made our special day memorable from the start to the finish. We were lucky enough to have Jonah serve as the DJ for my sister's wedding 4 years prior and for our wedding in June. He made such a connection with our families and friends that we felt as though he was truly celebrating us! During the planning process, he made time to meet with us and get to know us as a couple and as individuals. It was clear from the outset that Jonah wanted to make our day unbelievably special... and he did! He was vigilant at emailing back and forth with requests and answering questions. As if we weren't already in love with him, he won us over again at the reception. He made the night fun, relaxing and overall amazing. Our guests commented on Jonah's natural ability to keep the party moving and keep guests attention and dance moves! Sean and I felt loved throughout the whole evening thanks to Jonah! Our friends said that they had never been to a better wedding and we owe A TON of that praise to Jonah and Split Second Sound. To top things off, Jonah sent an extremely personal email about a week following "The Best Day Ever" to check up on us and wish us the best. The email was not scripted and even followed through the entire evening with specifics and names. Split Second Sound was truly a huge part of making our day "the best". Thank you Jonah!!!

Sean & Lucia Huber

2 July 2016 Words cannot adequately do justice to what an incredible show that Split Second Sound put on at our wedding. Our DJ, Jonah Pearl, was absolutely remarkable in every sense of the word and we are tremendously grateful for his role in making it the very best day of our lives. From our very first meeting with Jonah until the very last song was played at the reception, we were treated like royalty. Jonah played the perfect songs at the perfect moments and kept the dance floor jampacked all night long just like we had hoped. Many of our friends and family have told us in the 3 weeks since the wedding that it was the best reception that they had ever been to and that the DJ was the best that they had ever seen. Split Second Sound, and Jonah Pearl in particular, are an absolute must-have for the perfect wedding day. We are beyond grateful for the wonderful job that they did for us and I would recommend Split Second Sound 10 out of 10 times to anyone and everyone.

This email serves as an outstanding performance review for Jonah at SSS in regards to our wedding on July 23rd.

Gabriel and I were planning an out of town wedding in Charlotte, NC which doesn't exactly make the wedding process any easier, especially when you're 4 and a half hours away.  However, from start to finish Jonah and the rest of the SSS team were continuously helpful and a joy to work with as the wedding approached.

Jonah made the initiative to meet with us on one of our many pre wedding trips to talk specifically about what we wanted out of our wedding.  Our situation was as opposite as you could get as far as music was concerned.  Gabriel's family was all near Charlotte or other southern cities where my family was mostly from Michigan or somewhere up North.  The south wasn't really looking for any Eminem and the North had no interest in down home blue grass music.  Jonah listened to what both Gabriel and I were looking for out of our wedding and he not only delivered he went above and beyond our expectations!  Everyone had an amazing time and most didn't leave the dance floor including my now husband and I!!! 

Jonah wasn't just our wedding DJ.  He was the narrator and fun coordinator for one of the most important days of our life.  The memories that were made and the sequence of events would not have been possible without his care and expertise.  

We are beyond happy/thankful that we had Jonah for our music and entertainment needs.  I would recommend him any day of the week and twice on Sunday!!

I just wanted to tell you how happy we were with Jonah who was the DJ at my daughter's wedding at the Ritz-Carlton last weekend. Jonah did an outstanding job all the way around - set-up, music and sound system during the ceremony and cocktail hour, and reception music. I have never seen a dance floor so full of people having fun on EVERY song.  The floor was crowded from the first dance through the last.  Jonah did a great job or talking to the guests and getting their input.

 

Thank you so much for helping to make it such a memorable evening for all

To Jonah, Giovanni, and the whole Split Second Sound team,

 

 

Zach and I can honestly not put into words how much having you be apart of our wedding meant to us. From the first meet and greet we attended, we knew without a doubt that would be no better company to have DJ our big day! After being assigned our DJ, Jonah, he reached out to us immediately and worked around Zach and I's work schedules to meet with us and plan out the details of the day. Jonah was so attentive and purposeful in making sure he understood exactly what we wanted- from our first dance, to the songs that would get our guests on the dance floor the quickest, we knew we had zero worries about how wonderful it would be. When the wedding finally arrived, everything ran smoothly and our guests loved the variety of music that was played! Giovanni jumped right in and helped Jonah out with the day of duties and you could see that they made an excellent team! Thank you all for being an upstanding and hardworking company and for ensuring that all of your weddings are top notch. We are grateful to have worked with Split Second Sound!

Dear Split Second Sound,

 

The days leading up to our wedding were more than stressful. We had many unfortunate things occur which limited our time to review vendor contracts and arrangements. With that said, it required trust on our behalf that our vendors would show up and perform as agreed. With Split Second Sound, not only did Jonah show up and perform as agreed, he showed up and made our wedding more fun than any wedding I've been to. The set up was classic and elegant. The music was fun and refreshing. There was a perfect balance between all genres played. He even danced! He looked sharp and almost everyone asked me where I found the DJ. It was easily one of the easiest and best decisions we made. My husband and I tease that we will have to get married twice just so Jonah and Wicked Powers can come back. He worked along side Wicked Powers with ease and the transition was hardly noticed. Thanks for everything, Jonah and SSS!!!

We cannot tell you enough how much we appreciate you being a part of our special day! We could tell you love and enjoy your job. Thank you for taking the time to meet with us before the wedding and with all the suggestions. You guys kept everything moving along so well and there were never any slumps. The fake bouquet toss was a nice touch! We really think one thing that helped to slow the night down and allowed us to take it in was at the end of the night when you played, “can you feel the love tonight”. It really tied everything together This moment really stood out for us. Thank you again! Lori & Palak

Palak & Lori

23 September 2016 Splits Second sound re not just DJs. They are an entertainment company! From customizing your playlist, to assuring your schedule flows, to getting your guests up and having a great time. They have a large team of experienced staff to choose from. We paid a little extra for a veteran DJ and I believe it was worth it. The prices are reasonable so it was easy to work in. We had Jonah and Corey and I thank them for n unforgettable evening! If I had more than one wedding in a lifetime, they'd be my got to company.

Eric & Christine Poltawsky

24 September 2016 We had a fantastic experience with our awesome DJ Jonah and Split Second Sound! Jonah went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was perfect! We had to change venues at the last minute, and Jonah didn't miss a beat with any of the changes and updates. He kept everything moving smoothly, from the ceremony music, to cocktail hour, to reception introductions, music selections, and even helping us with the sparkler exit.

Jonah was helpful throughout the process, offering great suggestions via phone and email for us to use throughout the ceremony and reception, even throwing out an intro song for our dog to join us on the dance floor (because we're those people! :) ). He kept the dance floor moving and did an expert job keeping the reception flowing, despite last minute changes. No one would know, and Jonah was the consummate professional! Our friends were so impressed by Jonah - he even checked in with every table to ask about their song requests, which was a great idea and ensured everyone made it to the dance floor!

We are absolutely thrilled with our decision to use SSS! I would whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone planning an event! Many thanks for a fun evening on a packed dance floor, and a special thank you to Jonah who made sure everything went off without a hitch! He is the BEST!

Stephen & Victoria Carey

17 September 2016 My review will likely get lost in the thousands of excellent reviews that Split Second Sound receives. Weddings are expensive, but thousands of people cannot be wrong about SSS. Although a wedding is about you and your new spouse, it is also about the guests that have travelled near and far to spend the day with you. Depending on the size of your wedding, you may not have much time to spend with each guest, so it is your duty to make sure they have a great time. There is so much pressure to be the next best wedding and to put on a show, but chances are if you are paying out of your pocket with little help, you need the best bang for your buck. This is where Split Second Sound came in for me. A year and a half before my event, I chose the venue and I chose the DJ (based on reviews). It was so far out, but I had a plan. If everything fell apart, I knew there would be alcohol and Jonah Pearl! I didn’t mind paying a little extra as security that his well-known presence would be there on the most important day of my life. You may be loaded, or have a parent paying for everything, or be on a really tight budget like we were. We decided not to have a wedding planner, but to have a party motivator. BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE! Jonah went above and beyond. He helped mix a special mother/son dance mix for my teenage son and I and participated in second lining (a New Orleans traditional brass band parade). I don’t know how he got everyone on the floor, but grandmas were dancing and Jonah was too. At one point, I looked over and Jonah was collecting the sparklers from the sparkler exit and putting them in a sand bucket to dispose of. There are so many little things that you never think of. Jonah is TEAM BRIDE & GROOM for the day and you cannot ever put a price tag on someone that is willing to

4 June 2016 Hello Jonah & all of Split Second Sound!!! I have been wanting to write this review for quite awhile!! We finally have some downtime and our first weekend at home since the honeymoon! We have been floating on a cloud and it still feels that way! This marriage thing is INTENSE and we couldn't be happier! I want to say THANK YOU to Jonah for his amazing energy and glowing personality...you made our reception incredible on 6/4/2016!! You literally smiled the entire time and I truly appreciate your enthusiasm on the most important day of our lives. Todd and I were beyond happy with your work. It was so important to me for my husband to have FUN at the reception...mission accomplished! He had a blast!! You know how guys can be...they think it's all about the flowers, fluff and girly stuff. Well, Todd had a change of heart...he LOVED everything!!!! The music was perfect and the vibe of the party was even better. Thank you Jonah for bringing it all together! You were organized, well spoken and on point at all times! And you even took the time to say some kind words and introduce yourself to some of my family members!!! Everyone was so impressed!! I cannot thank you enough! Erica Stawick and I are now conspiring and looking for a reason to throw a future party and hire you again....stand by, will probably be contacting you ;) THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! We are HUGE Jonah Pearl fans!!!

When it came to selecting my wedding vendors, there was no question who I would be booking with for DJ services! Split Second Sound has a stellar reputation and came highly recommended by several of my friends who have booked them in the past. We were NOT disappointed! After contacting SSS, we met in-office for a presentation of the various services they offer. We opted for a package that included a DJ, DJ assistant, cocktail & reception music, as well as uplights. Once the contract was drafted, signed, and the deposit paid, my husband and I were provided access to an online portal where we could customize the details for our big day. I loved that we were able to log in any time, any where to add songs to our playlist as soon as they popped into our head! After getting set up with the online portal, we were matched with DJ Jonah and Assistant Tony. Jonah then contacted us to schedule an in-person meeting to discuss our vision for the big day. At the meeting, we reviewed the information from the online portal and discussed additional details we overlooked or were struggling with. Jonah was very thorough in going over the timeline to ensure we were on the same page as our vendors and event coordinator. The week of the wedding, Jonah was very attentive to my last-minute questions and tweaks to the timeline. He was able to custom mix a song for our introduction, as well as color match the uplights to a photo I provided! When the day of the wedding arrived, DJ Jonah and Assistant Tony arrived early and greeted us warmly. I was a bit stressed that day, as most brides are, but they instantly put me at ease and reassured me of the wonderful night they had planned for us. Once the reception began, Jonah's professionalism as an event host shined as he smoothly guided the course of events. He and Tony even went around to the guest tables during dinner to take song requests! I thought that was a wonderful, personal touch. Tony proved to be an excellent party motivator by leading the crowd in a line dance to break the ice. Once the party was rolling, Jonah was able to read the crowd and control the energy so that the entire night flowed perfectly! Guests of all ages were thoroughly entertained and enjoyed themselves immensely. My husband and I received so many compliments about how memorable our reception was thanks to Split Second Sound. I couldn't thank Jonah and Tony enough -- it truly was the best night ever!

Thank you. Jonah and his associate, Giovanni, were phenomenal. We have had so many guests comment on how perfect they thought our event was and they all mention Jonah's engagement.  

I'll be happy to do a referral in the coming weeks.

Jonah Pearl with Split Second Sound far exceeded our expectations as the DJ for our wedding this past July.  He met with my husband and I prior to our big day to talk about expectations, song choices, and the overall feel we were going for at our reception.  After this meeting with Jonah, I was positive we made the right decision by choosing Split Second Sound.  He came prepared with lots of questions/suggestions and a timeline for the reception.  Since we decided to forgo the day-of wedding coordinator, Jonah assured us that there was no need for one as he would be assisting with this during the cocktail hour and reception.  He was always several steps ahead of us and keeping us on track of our timeline and we are so thankful for that!  I am 100% positive that the evening would not have gone so smoothly without the help of Jonah!  Now, onto the entertainment - Jonah followed through with all of our requests, even last minute, night before the wedding father-daughter song requests.  He put so much effort into making our reception a blast before and during the party and it clearly showed.  So many of our guests were floored by Jonah's meticulous song-planning for our party.  Some comments we received the morning after our wedding were, "Best.Reception.Ever.", "Can you get married again? We had a blast last night!", "You had the BEST DJ EVER!".  The dancing is what people talked about and it's all because of Jonah!  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our big day so memorable and fun, Jonah!

Split Second Sound, and Jonah Pearl in particular, was one of the best decisions I made about my wedding. He made all of my guests feel welcome and a part of the party by asking each guest if he or she had a song request during dinner. I think my favorite part was when he got out on the dance floor to lead everyone in group dances and made sure everyone was having a great time all night. He also worked with our officiant and guitarist to make sure they were prepared for their portions and managed the reception timeline. Bottom line, Jonah was fantastic, and I would highly recommend him and Split Second Sound to anyone! Jonah, you truly made our wedding memorable.

We couldn’t have been happier with our choice of DJ for our wedding. Jonah and Split Second Sound did a phenomenal job. He was able to bring together a large group of people from all over the world on the dance floor. I don’t think there was ever a dull moment on the dance floor. From the moment the music started, people were out of their chairs enjoying the night. Jonah was able to accommodate our Irish dancers and was able to smoothly transition from the dancers to the actual party. We had such a blast and the music was really the best part! We would absolutely recommend Jonah and Split Second Sound to everyone. 

Jessica Bollman

27 June 2015 Split Second Sound was recommended to us and we could not have been happier with our choice. Jonah was our DJ for our wedding and he did a fantastic job. He set time aside before the event, to discuss our taste in music and what we wanted the vibe to be like at the wedding. Jonah was very easy to work with and immediately invested himself into making our reception just the way we wanted it to be. Jonah was great at entertaining and getting people on the dance floor. He took requests and went around to tables asking what kind of music they liked, so he could incorporate that into the evening, making sure everyone had a great time. The sound quality was great and Jonah was well organized to make sure the night went smoothly. We were so happy with our choice to use Split Second Sound. Thank you Jonah for making our night so memorable!

Wanted to drop you a quick note and thank you (and Anthony) for the amazing job you did providing the entertainment for our wedding. Stefani and I were extremely happy with our decision to choose Split Second, and most especially you, for our big day. You and Anthony did a fantastic job keeping the party well organized and 'moving' when things got a little slow. I'm certain that our guests had as good of a time as we did.

 

I will not hesitate to recommend you and Split Second in the future. If a potential client is ever in need of a reference (or referral) then please contact me. Keep up the good work!

We are so happy to provide feeding for you and your team. You guys did an amazing job at our wedding. We truly could not be happier with the whole experience and we know we picked the best DJ around! You helped us out from deciding which songs to use for family introduction, to staying on schedule the day of (but in a stress free way) to getting everyone on the dance floor! We saw a greater percentage of people dancing at our wedding than we have ever seen. There were lots of people up and dancing that we would never have thought would want to. You guys managed the whole reception seamlessly and we know the night would not have been the same without you. After the wedding whenever we talk to friends or family one of the first things that they mention is how much the loved you and how awesome the DJ and music were. They were so impressed that you came around to each table and they loved your personality. Again we can not thank you enough and we are already recommending you to anyone who needs a DJ!

 

We would be happy to be a reference for you guys in whatever you need!

 

Thanks for your kind words and we hope to see you soon!

I need you to know that my wedding day, June 12, 2015 was one of the most stressful days of my life. My flowers were wrong, it started raining before my outdoor ceremony, etc. That being said, I never once had to worry about my music or my DJ. From the minute we first met Jonah we knew we were making the right decision. To begin with he was there throughout the planning process, and always available if I needed to change anything. Then my big day came and he rolled with it when we had to be moved inside. And then the party started. My now husband and I wanted a party. And Jonah delivered. From taking requests from our guests and thankfully knowing when to run those by us, and when to just go with it. He is a true DJ, being able to mix the songs just right in order to make the night flow seamlessly. Our guests were a rowdy bunch who just wanted to dance and karaoke to Don't Stop Believing, wanted to do interpretive dance to Bohemian Rhapsody, to wanting to do the Cupid Shuffle (which he knew to not play). Jonah made it work and made it amazing. We cannot thank him enough. He even danced with me to Man in the Mirror, and photo bombed my selfie with my new husband. I laugh every time I look at it. The average age of our wedding was about 38, and Jonah knew how to get everyone of them on the floor. Most of our friends can be quoted as saying, "If more weddings were like this one, I'd go to more." We owe it to Jonah. So thank you guys and especially Jonah for making our "wedding" AKA a party with a 5 minute ceremony as a formality, the best day of our lives.

We could not have been happier. Jonah was awesome and everyone totally enjoyed the wedding. They were dancing the entire night. I would recommend you to anyone.

We absolutely loved working with Jonah. He was very generous and helpful during the entire planning process. As emcee, his announcements and transitions were seamless and not at all intrusive. He did an amazing job interpreting our scattered notes and lists into a perfect playlist that yielded tons of dancing! I always worried that the dance floor at my wedding would be too empty, but it was full all night. We were a little nervous about Split Second's policy of asking guests to give them requests because we had specific ideas about the type of music we wanted (we were being picky), but Jonah was subtle and managed to play requests without straying at all from our vision and style. Everyone had a great time, especially during the 90s-and-early-2000s dance party we were dead-set on for the last hour! It was great fun and we didn't leave the dance floor all night.

I'm sure you can guess from all of our excitement the night of the wedding and my parents compliments all over Facebook that we had a great time and thought you did an AWESOME job! We were so pleased with the mix of songs you played, taking requests from people, checking in on Chad and I, and keeping the party going the whole time.  It was so cool to see on your blog post that from the first song to the last song everyone was up and dancing which you know is what we wanted!  We're happy to be a reference for you and I've already recommended you to friends!  Thank you again for the awesome time, all your hard work on getting the speakers outside setup, and taking the time to get to know us!

Just wanted to say thank you again for everything you all did for our wedding!  It flew by so fast, but everything was so smooth.  Despite the timing issue we had with our photographer (obviously not you all's fault), you really helped us out and getting everyone together quickly for our farewell.  The music was perfect, every single person I talked to after the fact said nothing but positive things about how great of a job you guys did!!!  I would be happy to be a reference for anyone, you really know how to work the crowd my man!  Thank you again for making our wedding day amazing!  We will never forget it.

25 October 2014 We absolutely LOVED Jonah. When I was looking for a DJ I just put a simple status up on Facebook hoping to get some good feedback. I had about 20 comments, 16 of those where either recommending Jonah from split second sound or just split second sound in general. After going in and meeting with LeVar I was blown away by this company and had no hesitation hiring them. I truly believe its the best decision I made in my wedding process.Everything that could go wrong in a wedding process went wrong at our wedding. We lost our venue 6 weeks before and we where our new venues 1st wedding, needless to say there where a lot of hiccups on that day. I was blown away at the professionalism of Jonah not only on the day but the whole process. He went above and beyond to make sure all of my questions were answered, he was always willing to give his professional opinion on what would go the most smooth. The day of the wedding the was beyond amazing! He made the wedding go so smoothly and was so detailed in every single thing. and also got out on the floor led the dances and was so much fun! I would recommend split second sound to anyone who is looking for a amazing company/DJ. These people really have it together which really puts a brides mind at ease.

Everyone had an absolute blast on the dance floor and I love how all our musical requests were blended seamlessly into the playlist. Thank you for listening to us, working with us, and providing excellent music during our ceremony and reception. I can't believe you found the version of Jenny Rebecca and the TMNT songs!! Everything was perfect. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Jenny Kaemmerlen Kabool

12 September 2014 From the bottom of our heart we could not have asked for a better ceremony and reception and a lot of the credit has to go to your team.  They were professional through the entire day keeping our guests included in every moment!  Every thing that we had talked about prior to the event was taking into consideration and they nailed the exact vibe that we had asked for. 

Your team should be very proud of the experience and professionalism that they brought to our event.  All of our guests had nothing but amazing things to say about the music selections. 

Special thanks to Jonah and his partner.  I appreciate his time and communication on getting to know both Tim and I!

I would definitely recommend your team to anyone else who is having a wedding in the area! We will also keep you in mind for future events.

Kyle and I would like to say thank you to Split Second Sound and especially to our DJ Jonah Pearl and his assistant Bradley.  We were so amazed by how awesome they were in preparing for our wedding and executing everything flawlessly.  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 are so happy we found your company to DJ our wedding.

We had such a great time at our reception, and we had so many compliments on the music and Jonah. Everyone loved that Jonah asked them for song requests. I felt like he made the entire reception flow really smoothly, which I really appreciated. Feel free to use us for a reference. It was a great reception!

31 May 2014 We had a great experience and are so grateful to Jonah Pearl.  He has a real gift for DJing/hosting celebrations and we so appreciated all the care he took to make sure everything was just as we requested.  He was one of the most complimented parts of our celebration.  We also appreciated the general organization and support of SSS.

It will be very hard to sum up my thoughts and appreciation about our DJ in just a few sentences but I will do my best :-) 

 

Jonah, our DJ was absolutely everything and more we could have ever imagined. From our meetings prior to the wedding to the actual big day, he blew away any expectations my husband or I ever had. From the interaction Jonah and his assistant had with every single guest to making sure Seth and I were always having the best time ever, was purely amazing. Hands down would recommend Jonah for anyone's wedding. He seriously has the natural gift for this, and made our wedding the absolute best day of our lives. We cannot thank you guys enough for the amazing experience we had with Split Second Sound and would recommend you guys to anyone that was to ever ask us about wedding DJ's!!! Oh yeah, and his dance skills on the dance floor are the bomb!!!! ;-)

 

Thank you so much once again!!!!!

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!

To describe in one word...AMAZING. Jonah and the other DJ did an amazing job at my wedding reception. They made sure everything went together perfectly and worked along side the other vendors to make sure everything happened exactly when it was supposed to. Neither myself, or my family had to worry about a thing. They took care of everything. Also they played the best music all night, and everyone had an amazing time dancing all night. The kids loved it. Everyone has complemented me on the DJ service since the wedding. The money was definitely well spent! I would recommend to everyone!

We were beyond impressed/pleased with Jonah and SSS.  We had multiple compliments on the music and I honestly have not been to a wedding yet, (and I have been to a lot), where people had as much fun as they did at our wedding and that many people danced....ALL NIGHT! I am not just saying this because it was my wedding... it is honestly the truth.  We would love to help spread the word of how great SSS is!!

We were so happy with Jonah Pearl as our DJ and would recommend him without question!!  To be honest, we were at first a little hesitant going with such a large company, we didn't want to get lost in the shuffle with everyone else.  However, that didn't happen at all.  We liked the fact that there was a backup for everything, including the DJ, should something have happened on the night of our wedding.  We ended up requesting Jonah after a couple of people recommended him to us (including Nathan at the Charlotte City Club where we got married) and liked Jonah right away.  He was so friendly, professional, and we felt comfortable with him, which is so important for most of your wedding vendors.  He asked a lot of great questions to figure out what kind of music and atmosphere we wanted on our big day and he followed through with everything we said and requested.  He even played some bits of pieces of Star Wars music throughout our reception as I asked:)   He stayed in contact up until the wedding and always responded to any questions or thoughts I had quickly.  He checked in with me during the reception to make sure I was happy with everything and any song I went and requested night of was of course played immediately.  Several of our friends and family said that our wedding was one of the most fun weddings they have ever been to and I know Jonah was a huge part of that!  Again, we would recommend Split Second Sound and especially Jonah to anyone who needs a DJ for their event!

Jonah was amazing!. He did it all. No equipment failures. No dead air ever! Wireless worked without drop outs, cables and booth were not in the way, and lighting was perfect. Mix was a perfect blend and not overpowering.  It was good to see you did not use mediocre equipment as well. I have been doing sound for ~20 years and the fact you use Mackie PAs etc. for me made for a worry free event. Interaction with the crowd was top notch and fun. We didn't have to worry about a thing. With all the craziness of the wedding itself it was beneficial to use your company Jonah because of the experience you/he has. We knew nothing about what needed to be done when or how. Jonah interacted professionally with the bridal party, wedding coordinator, minister etc... and was ‘on it’ 100% of the time. He was there early, set up and packed up invisibly. 
In Summary- It was a major success. Jonah is a major asset for your company! If your other DJs are half as good as Jonah your company will go far. 

Bob Albertson

31 August 2013 I used Jonah from split second sound and he was FABULOUS! He was very nice and listened to exactly what we wanted! We had a smaller wedding with only 60 people and everyone said it was the most they have danced at a wedding in a long time! He was very professional and really nice! I would highly recommend using them and requesting Jonah!

We could not have chosen a better DJ than Jonah. He was the easiest to work with out of all my vendors and always responded to our emails or calls right away. Everything that we had discussed with him was pulled off seamlessly and exactly how we had wanted it. My husband's mother wanted to combine three songs for their mother/son dance and he was totally okay with that and even requested the file in advance instead of receiving the CD on the day - I was just really impressed with how committed he was to pulling everything off without a hitch. We told Jonah that most important to us was to have our wedding be a dance party and he certainly delivered. Everyone was on the dance floor all night and we received so many compliments about the DJ. We had guests of all ages and backgrounds (including several from South Africa and New Zealand) and they all had such a good time. One older uncle told us that if anyone didn't have a good time at our wedding they were dead! And our photographer called our reception a "rave-ception." Our guests loved how Jonah and Adam went around asking them for song requests and we all loved the reverse anniversary dance to get the party started - it was very special to some of the older couples to be able to represent their long marriages like that. At one point early in night there were two 80s songs played back-to-back and the crowd on the dance floor started to shrink a little. Within 10 seconds of me noticing the slow-down, the music changed and everyone came back out. I think that is a true testament to how great Adam and Jonah are at reading the crowd. And after that the party never stopped! Thank you so much SSS, Jonah and his assistant for such an amazing wedding. If we have anything to say about it, we will be seeing a lot of you at our friends' weddings in the future.

AWESOME!!!!!! 
I loved Split Second Sound from the first time I sat down and met with Vinny. I had a list of questions (kind of like an interview) and Vinny was very knowledgeable and confident that they would be able to bring our wedding day to LIFE….and they did just THAT! Jonah was our DJ. He was so awesome. I loved is personality and demeanor. I am SO THANKFUL that he was assigned to our wedding. He was the ultimate perfect fit. Thank you!!

Our wedding was amazing because all of our guests were entertained down to the last second!! Jonah was so calm and accommodating the whole night. He kept us on a great schedule to make sure we got to have all of our traditional photo ops without rushing us through any part of the night. There were guests of all ages dancing until we left for the end of the night. I would say that out of 200 guests there were about 150 still there when we left. I think that this is because of how much fun they were having. 

Thanks for making our wedding so memorable!

Kimberly Poe

Everything was great and Jonah and his assistant Demar did a great job getting everyone up and dancing.  They were able to entertain all ages in the crowd.  All of our friends and family keep raving about how much fun they had.  Thanks again to Jonah and everyone at split second sound for making our reception amazing!

As we began planning for our wedding, we knew that the DJ was what would "make or break" the entire event. However, in booking Jonah with SSS we were confident that our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were going to be absolutely perfect. Little did we know...

Jonah went above and beyond our expectations! Our family and friends were so impressed with him and have been talking about how wonderful he was ever since. The grooms twin brother is getting married July of 2014 and I am positive that they will be following in our footsteps in using SSS for their wedding. I could not be happier with the way everything turned out; I would recommend Jonah and Split Second Sound to ANYONE! Thank you guys for your awesome services!!

FAQ

9 September 2017 "We were married at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden on the 9th of September. My husband Collin and I had recently been to several weddings and felt like we had a pretty good idea of what we were looking for in a DJ. Split second sound (SSS) went above and beyond anything we could have imagined. We got to meet most of the SSS team and mingle with each DJ to get a sense of their style. We were lucky enough to be paired with Jonah who took the time to meet with us a few weeks prior to the wedding to talk about our musical likes and dislikes, details about how we met, and to review timelines. We already knew our wedding was gonna be a great day, but I couldn't wait for the big day after we met the Jonah. Daziah (Jonah's assistant DJ) and Jonah were absolutely awesome!! Everyone at the wedding was on the dance floor and there was never a lull. I had made reference to a song in my vows and Jonah played it at the very end of the night while guests were getting hooked up with sparklers. He made the whole day that much more special. We can't thank Jonah and Daziah enough for everything."

Collin & Sara Barrett

8 July 2017 "Two words: game changer. Our wedding is being talked about amongst our friends as one of the best ever and a huge part of that was Jonah. Such a professional and genuinely great guy. By the time it was over, we felt like he was one of our best friends and the life of the party. He went out of his way to get a feel for our style, the vibe of the guests and the party we wanted to had, and somehow pulled all of that together into beautiful moments for the family, amazing dance party for the guests and a magical time for us as a couple. Cannot recommend him highly enough. If you’re thinking about a band or a band / DJ blend, stop what you’re doing. Just call Jonah and wait to be amazed. Thank you Jonah!!"

Bobak & Sophie Vazeen

3 September 2017 "There's no words to describe how Jonah Pearl made our wedding dreams come true! We really wanted a party where everyone felt welcome to get up and dance. People were dancing before dinner was over! The floor was always full of fun and people had a total blast! My matron of honor contacted him for some a special request for her toast/speech... and it came out perfect! He asked us questions when he met us for our planning meeting - and he incorporated a lot of personal touches very well. He made everything sound perfect through the ceremony and help facilitate all the activities of the night. When he met with us for our planning meeting he made us feel so comfortable that we knew everything was going to go perfectly (and if it didn't it would be OK!) I can't recommend Jonah enough!"

Kyle & Amanda Miller

12 August 2017 "We got married August 12, 2017 and our DJ from Split Second Sound (SSS) was Jonah. I did not originally choose a DJ and we were matched by SSS based on our responses on a personality form and I cannot believe how good of a job SS did picking out our DJ! Jonah truly listened to us and helped us combined our vision with what wedding guests would want to experience. He gave us recommendations when we needed them and he was flexible with our schedule for the evening too. I have never seen so many people dancing and enjoying themselves. In a few words people have described our wedding as "wild and crazy", "the best time ever", a "crazy, fun party" and "loads of fun". I saw family members dancing that I didn't think would stay past dinner. I was most impressed with the way Jonah led the reception from our hilarious introductions, to the toasts, cake and flower toss. No one got left out or missed any of the big moments because of his awesome MCing abilities. (Rashad and Daziah were awesome too!). On top of all of this, Jonah has this awareness as a DJ that I don't think can be taught. By this I mean he knew when to play some beach music and fun older songs, knew when to throw in a romantic slow song, when to have a line dance (Oh yes, we asked for the Macarena), and when to really get the party going with upbeat pop, rock and rap music. There was no lull and the night was perfect in every way! He connected with all age groups and the night flowed flawlessly. You can tell he genuinely loves music. I had so much fun planning out the intro songs for our wedding party and I cannot even count how many compliments I got about the song choices for the entrances and how it really created a fun and light atmosphere from the start. I think Jonah and the SSS crew made the difference between people feeling relaxed and comfortable at our reception and for that we will be forever grateful. This was the best day of our lives and it would not have been the same without Jonah of the Split Second Sound team."

Martin & Kelly Weatherby

24 June 2017 "Split Second Sound was FANTASTIC! They were recommended to us by our photographers, "The Beautiful Mess" and they did not disappoint! We went with the Elite 2 Package with up to 7 hours of coverage for the ceremony, cocktail and reception and it was well worth the investment! Jonah, Vinny and Daziah were all VERY PROFESSIONAL and kept the dance floor PACKED until it was time to leave! The pre-planning organization with their website was top notch and Jonah Pearl (our head DJ) did a fantastic job recommending music for all our special dances and understanding our vision with our wedding music. Day of production and flow of the night was even more impressive! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding reception focused on a love of dancing! THANK YOU to Split Second Sound for making our wedding day even more perfect than it already was!"

David & Allison Warren

29 April 2017 "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 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! He took the time to get to know us and what we wanted, but was also a life saver with suggestions (especially when my brain couldn't make any more decisions)! No other company compares."

Tyler & Katie Marriott

14 May 2016 We absolutely loved working with split second sound! Our DJ, Jonah, was excellent! We had a great time dancing the night away at the wedding and our dance floor was consistently filled from the moment the music started. Many of our friends and family members said they loved the music. Jonah was great at being not only a DJ but also an emcee for the night's activities. He announced the toasts and the special dances and he also led everyone in the "Wobble." We also used SSS for the ceremony music. A microphone for the pastor and the readers were provided and the audio was well audible for guests. We would recommend Split Second Sound to anyone--and especially Jonah!

James & Julia Reid

Jonah with Split Second Sound was the perfect DJ for our wedding and we are so happy to have selected them for our special day. Jonah and his assistant were professional, organized, and very accommodating. They even included each guest by going around to each table and asking what they would like to hear. Jonah met with us prior to the wedding and used many of our details to make the reception personalized. For instance, we have a love for Disney, and Jonah made sure to incorporate that into the Dinner music, it was perfect! Everyone was dancing and having a great time thanks to Jonah and his assistant! Thank you to Split Second Sound for an amazing and unforgettable night!

This is by far the best company in the South East for DJs, MCs, Parties and all of your Event Planning endeavors. FIVE STARS! Our selected DJ tag-team for our recent March 18 2017 Wedding was Jonah & Eric from Split Second Sound. Let us tell you, they were the best at what they do!!! We cannot even think of anyone remotely better than these guys. FIVE STARS! We and our guests were so happy with their performance, involvement, professionalism, and a genuine joy to be around that they all will be calling Split Second Sound for their next event. Here's to Jonah & Eric of Split Second Sound; you guys are simply the best!!! FIVE STARS! Thanks, Walter & MaryAnn"

Walter & MaryAnn Webb

30 September 2016 "When it came to selecting my wedding vendors, there was no question who I would be booking with for DJ services! Split Second Sound has a stellar reputation and came highly recommended by several of my friends who have booked them in the past. We were NOT disappointed! After contacting SSS, we met in-office for a presentation of the various services they offer. We opted for a package that included a DJ, DJ assistant, cocktail & reception music, as well as uplights. Once the contract was drafted, signed, and the deposit paid, my husband and I were provided access to an online portal where we could customize the details for our big day. I loved that we were able to log in any time, any where to add songs to our playlist as soon as they popped into our head! After getting set up with the online portal, we were matched with DJ Jonah and Assistant Tony. Jonah then contacted us to schedule an in-person meeting to discuss our vision for the big day. At the meeting, we reviewed the information from the online portal and discussed additional details we overlooked or were struggling with. Jonah was very thorough in going over the timeline to ensure we were on the same page as our vendors and event coordinator. The week of the wedding, Jonah was very attentive to my last-minute questions and tweaks to the timeline. He was able to custom mix a song for our introduction, as well as color match the uplights to a photo I provided! When the day of the wedding arrived, DJ Jonah and Assistant Tony arrived early and greeted us warmly. I was a bit stressed that day, as most brides are, but they instantly put me at ease and reassured me of the wonderful night they had planned for us. Once the reception began, Jonah's professionalism as an event host shined as he smoothly guided the course of events. He and Tony even went around to the guest tables during dinner to take song requests! I thought that was a wonderful, personal touch. Tony proved to be an excellent party motivator by leading the crowd in a line dance to break the ice. Once the party was rolling, Jonah was able to read the crowd and control the energy so that the entire night flowed perfectly! Guests of all ages were thoroughly entertained and enjoyed themselves immensely. My husband and I received so many compliments about how memorable our reception was thanks to Split Second Sound. I couldn't thank Jonah and Tony enough -- it truly was the best night ever!"

28 October 2017 "Jonah and Split Second Sound were without a doubt one of the best choices we made during our wedding planning process. Not only is Jonah personable and knowledgeable but he knew exactly what he was doing and what we wanted just by asking us a few questions. All of our guest raved about how much fun they had on the dance floor. Thank you Jonah for making our wedding reception one we will never forget! You rocked it!"

Carl & Rebecca Daniel

21 October 2017 "I cannot say enough good things bout Split Second Sound, and about Jonah Pearl in particular! Jonah and his awesome assistant Desire were seriously so amazing! They made every transition from dinner, to toasts, to dancing, to the end of the night go so smoothly for our guest. As soon as it was dancing time, Jonah was bringing such a fun atmosphere and Desire was literally out on the floor getting people to dance. At one point they were both dancing with our guests to the electric slide. Our wedding reception was so much fun and I truly think that so much of that was thanks to Jonah and Desire. We had multiple guests come up and tell us that our DJ was so good at his job and that our playlist was amazing. Even leading up to the event Jonah never rushed us and was so pleasant when planning out our music for the evening. My fiancé and I immediately hit it off with him and he never did disappoint. My wedding planner told me Jonah was one of the best and she was 100% correct. I would recommend SSS to anyone! We can't thank them enough for making our wedding so much fun!"

Ernesto & Haley Ferreira

14 April 2017 "We cannot think of one bad thing to say about Split Second Sound - we could not have picked a better DJ Service for our wedding day! We only had 75 guests, but the dance floor was full all night! Jonah was amazing, listened to our requests and was able to play music that everyone enjoyed (we had quite an age range in our guests). So many people commented on how personable they were, they literally walked around to every table and took song requests & even danced with us! Would hire them again in a heartbeat!!"

Joseph & Valerie Wilcox

3 June 2017 "Jonah was a hit! He listened to exactly the flow and vibe we wanted for our wedding and NAILED it. I'm not sure I ever left the dance floor and every song was on point. Several guests commented on how awesome the DJ was. Not only did he deliver but it was one step in the wedding planning process that I never felt worried about which is HUGE. Jonah knew what he was doing and was super helpful throughout all planning." 

Nick & Naomi Idol

21 April 2017 "We booked Split Second Sound, and specifically DJ Jonah, after attending a wedding he worked. He was absolutely amazing. Jonah took the time to get to know us. He meet with us and got know our story and understood what type of music we liked. He had the party rocking from the get go. Jonah even through in a special song, unexpectedly, that was really special for us and created memories that will last a lifetime. Such a class act and true professional. Book with Split Second Sound if you're in need of a DJ!!!"

I would recommend him to anyone who needs a DJ!! DJ on the half shell <3"

Zac & Shannon Copley

11 February 2017 "My now-wife and I hired Spilt Second sound to DJ our February wedding. Right from our first contact with the company, we knew we had made the right choice. Split Second always showed the perfect amount of professionalism while still being friendly and making us feel totally comfortable. Since we didn't pick a specific DJ, we were set up with Jonah and we couldn't have been happier. He was always available whether by meeting or email to answer any questions and ensure that everything was exactly how we wanted it on our big day - and boy, was it! Jonah and his colleague Christopher brought the party. Taking the time to chat with guests during dinner really helped them read the room and make sure that they played the right songs during the reception to get everyone dancing. Honestly the only bad thing I can say about Jonah and Split Second is that people won't shut up about how much fun they had at our wedding! Thanks again, Jonah!"

9 September 2016 "Split Second Sound went beyond your average DJ. They are an entertainment company. From customizing your playlist, to assuring your schedule is flowing, and getting your guests up and having a good time! They have a large team of experienced staff to choose from and their prices are reasonable. We paid extra to get a veteran and I believe it was worth is. We had Jonah and Corey and I thank them for a unforgettable evening. If I had more than one wedding in a lifetime, they'd be my go to company!"

21 January 2017 "DJ Jonah and assistant Daziah MADE my wedding! They were so professional and had a plan for the reception down to the minute which kept us on track. Jonah was enthusiastic to work with my husband and I and really worked hard to create an unforgettable experience. They were also amazing at including everyone on the dance floor. We were concerned that no one would want to dance, but the floor was packed all night! I would recommend SSS to anyone looking for a good time. I LOVE JONAH!!!!"

"From inquiry to party time, Split Second Sound was the most excellent choice for our big day. Vinny provided great comfort and expertise from the initial setup and everyone at the office was super responsive to emails and any questions we had. DJ Jonah truly made our wedding a success with his assistance from the officiant sound for ceremony, appropriate and fun selections for cocktail and dinner music, then he 100% fulfilled our wishes for the reception atmosphere and tunes. Jonah even braced the winter weather in Charlotte on Jan. 7, 2017 to get to the venue when a lot of our family wasn't able to make it. We are so thankful for his patience while we worked out the event timeline. His understanding of what is needed and when is remarkable. My husband and I are both professional musicians, so we had an extremely selective Must Playlist and Do Not Playlist and Jonah was very receptive, listened and delivered on every request and then some. Our wedding was only around 50 people, but made it feel like the biggest party ever! He wasn't cheesy and that was our main issue with most DJ companies. Needless to say, our standards were high and this company and especially Jonah surpassed all of our wishes! Thank you to Vinny, Jonah, and the whole Split Second team for providing a flawless and unforgettable experience!"

"Jonah at Split Second Sound single-handedly made our reception more fun than we could have imagined. He had everyone, young and old, on the dance floor the entire night. 

Split Second Sound is a step above the rest. Their professionalism is second to none and they were super accommodating, meeting us after work hours. Jonah even met us at a coffee shop near our house for convenience. I highly recommend this group of professionals."

Thank you so much for being our DJ, you did an amazing job! The wedding flowed really well together and there were no dull moments at all. We were very happy with all of the music selection and wish we could have kept the party going. I had a couple friends even comment on what a good job you did. You can definitely use us a reference and we would recommend you to all of our friends.

I'm Lenora Critcher, Meredith's mom.

I just wanted to reach out to you and tell you what a fabulous job you did at Meredith and Todd's wedding!

I have received so many flattering comments about you and what a great DJ you were!

Everyone had soooo much fun dancing!

Just wanted to pass along...

Jonah at Split Second Sound did a phenomenal job at my daughter's wedding reception on April 16 and he certainly knew how to get everyone on the dance floor! All the guests were commenting on how good he was and how nice it was of him to stop by each table at dinner to ask for song requests. He also did a great job announcing the wedding party and the bride and groom for their first dance. You can't go wrong with Jonah!

Lenora Critcher

2 April 2016 Jonah and the entire Split Second Sound team did an amazing job at our wedding. Jonah kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. We appreciated meeting with him beforehand and felt at ease going into the night knowing he was going to make the night flow exactly how we wanted. We'd highly recommend him and SSS!

Choosing Split Second Sound was the first thing we did after we got engaged. From the beginning planning stages we knew we would not have to worry about a thing.  I could not be happier with our choice. Jonah was so amazing. He helped us incorporate my young daughter into all of the special moments which really meant a lot to us. He was able to get all our guests, young and old, on the dance floor and made it such a memorable night for everyone. We can not thank you enough for making our special day that much more special! I will be recommending Jonah and Split Second Sound to all my newly engaged friends and family.

 

Thank you again Jonah for everything! We love you!

He listened to everything that we wanted, and adapted to all the changes we threw his way. Our wedding was perfect and a large bit of that can be attributed to Jonah and the team at Split Second Sound."

They always responded so quickly to my emails and when it came to the time line and planning he was amazing. The day of the wedding he moved everything along perfectly. The music was great and even my guests have talked about how wonderful he was. By far my favorite vendor!"

"DJ Jonah and assistant Daziah were amazing at having the night so organized and everyone entertained. We were afraid that the dance floor would be empty because of the diverse crowd we had, but the floor was packed the entire night. Jonah really took the time to get to know us, and worked hard to make sure the night was unforgettable. I would highly recommend SSS to anyone looking for a good time and a professional business."

21 September 2013 "We used Jonah from Split Second Sound and he was AMAZING!  We had a smaller wedding with only 60 people and we were dancing all night!  He went around during dinner and asked the guest for any request and everyone really loved that!  He was really nice and listened to exactly what we wanted! Jonah was a really awesome the entire night and I would use them again for any occasion! 

Highly, highly recommended Split Second Sound!"

5 September 2015 Jonah was our DJ for our 9/5 wedding at the Biltmore Estate. He did such a great job- he provided a mic for our pastor and our reader, he worked with me carefully on our cocktail hour music, he created a fun playlist of Indian and American music for our guests to dance the night away, and he did it all while being super pleasant and thoughtful to everything we needed. We truly enjoyed working with him and the SSS team!

Ashley Antony

8 August 2015 We love Jonah! He is just so professional and kind, he makes working with him a truly enjoyable experience. And he's so flexible and understanding, he definitely takes the stress away from the wedding (unlike all the vendors that add so much stress). We are so lucky to have him!!!

Caitlyn

12 April 2013 We LOVED Jonah. Thank you so much for always doing such a great job at our events. You can expect to hear from us this time next year!

Kim Prucha

7 July 2012 I am beyond pleased with what an exceptional job Jonah did at my wedding! He was so in sync with Tom and I, and when I said I want people leaving our wedding saying "That was the most RAD wedding I have ever been to" -- people are still saying that! Jonah was the perfect DJ for my wedding and extremely professional. It was a rockin wedding and reception, and Split Second Sound and Jonah deserve all my thanks! Thank you for your DJ expertise and bringing smiles and mad dancing to myself,Tom, London England, Greenville SC,and all the other peeps from far and wide that attended the festivities!!!

Anna Hogan

29 June 2012 What a night!  And without Jonah and his beautiful, tiny dancer – it would not have been such an amazing night!  I heard Jonah was one of the best in Charlotte and he truly made us a believer that evening.  Thank you for sharing him with us – and thank you for being such an amazing provider of sound and DJ services!  We promise to look you up for our next event and share your name around Charlotte!!!!  Keep up the amazing work!

Gretchen Rost

25 June 2012 Split Second Sound, more specifically Jonah Pearl, was PERFECT for our wedding. SSS is an incredible company with many talented DJs and entertainers. Jonah did a phenomenal job! At least half (probably more but I wasn't counting) of the guests complimented his work at our wedding. He got people to dance who I was sure were not going to dance at all. He was very respectful to my husband and myself and checked the song requests with us to make sure that nothing was played that we didn't want to hear. He truly made our night spectacular and I will rave about him and SSS for the rest of my life.

Annie O'Brien

12 May 2012 Everything was great at our wedding with the Split Second family and Jonah. He did everything according to the schedule as discussed, had a good vibe with the crowd, played awesome songs that everyone was connected to and made any changes that we asked last minute. People were dancing all night long and it was because of Jonah's effort that he put into our wedding. I have already recommended you guys to friends that are getting married and I hope to continue to recommend your services to other people. Thank you for everything, I can't imagine what the wedding could have been like without Jonah and the team. If you have any other questions, let me know. Thanks!!

I just want to commend Jonah Pearl for his OUTSTANDING work.  He was effortlessly professional, classy, humble, and down to earth.  He really connected with my guests and made them feel important and involved in the reception.  I have worked with other DJs in the past, and he put every one of them to shame.  He was a perfect match for the wedding and reception.  Split Second Sound Family is very lucky to have such a class act and genuine person on the team.  I cannot stress how memorable and wonderful he made the most important day of my and my husband's lives.  Jonah took the energy of the party and kept it going for hours.  I will absolutely be using Split Second Sound's services in the future in my next travel to North Carolina.  We were very impressed and very pleased.  Planning a wedding from Cleveland, OH was pretty nerve racking, but I knew I was in good hands when I first got in touch with you, Michelle.  Jonah, I'm sure, has once again made Split Second Sound proud and he is a direct representation of what Split Second is all about.  Thank you for everything you and the family have done for me and mine.  Best of luck to continuing such a prosperous establishment and I will be in touch in the future for our next party in NC.  Thank you!!!

Jonah was great! He helped us to be prepared and kept us on track that night. We were able to enjoy the event and not worry about all of the details.  He was very personable and got along great with our guests.  They're still talking about him. We couldn't have asked for anything more; thanks Jonah!

Erica Honeywell

28 April 2012 Split Second Sound was the best investment we could have made for our reception. Jonah is an amazing DJ and really set the tone for our wedding. Even our grandparents were jumping around and saying it was the best wedding they have ever been too. Any wedding must have good music, food and drinks- but I believe SSS truly made our wedding a party for all ages. My husband and I could barely talk to people because all we wanted to do was dance! Everything from the multicolor lights, to the purple uplights, to the two men DJ system- it was awesome! I kept making changes to the songs after I met with the DJ and he was totally cool accommodating all and mixing songs for us too! Music mixed for all the decades! Thank you Split Second Sound for making our wedding reception the best ever!!!!

Amber McCarter

7 January 2012 I have nothing but FANTASTIC things to say about you guys and about Jonah.  He was so nice and easy to work with and really seemed to get the sort music that we wanted to have played (which I know couldn't have been easy because we definitely requested a wide range of music).  As far as Split Second Sound in general, you were always so responsive to my emails, and the website made it super easy to get things done since I don't live in the area.  It really was a great experience!

I just wanted to take a minute to rave about Jonah!  He was simply amazing at our wedding and we couldn't have asked for anything more! He was so much fun and helped us from start to finish whether it was with song selection or figuring out the order of how we wanted things to go.  He was always happy to help and so nice!  We loved him and so did our guests!  We have people still talking about how nice it was for him to walk around and see what other people wanted to hear at the reception.  He played everything we asked him to and he kept up with us to make sure we knew what was going on and what we should be doing next, which was awesome. I seriously can't thank you enough for letting us have him for our wedding, it was absolutely amazing, fun and everything that we wanted! Thank you thank you!!

Elaine Hatcher-James

17 September 2011 We had an amazing time, and I have never seen my father move that way. I was pretty sure he was going to immobile the next day (he was fine though).  Jonah did a fabulous job, and he really got everyone going! I have gotten so many compliments on the music and the DJ, the fact that Jonah went the extra mile and played Swedish music was just so much appreciated by everyone, even those who did not understand the words thought that it was a really nice touch! Friends of mine who just got engaged and attended the wedding have already asked me about you guys! I will absolutely recommend Split Second Sound for any event!

Jennie Wettersten

28 August 2011 The Split Second Sound team of Levar and Jonah did an amazing job at our wedding. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the entire night. Levar and Jonah did a great job running the reception portion of our wedding and played some great music. We heard nothing but great things from our guests and would absolutely recommend Split Second to anyone!

Scott & Jaci Peterson

30 April 2011 Words can not describe how amazing Jonah was at our wedding reception. I am still getting compliments about how much fun all of our guest had. He was very professional, timely, and attentive to my request for the type of music to be played. Guests enjoyed the ability to request songs and well as being asked about which songs they wanted played. I feel like he made the night more memorable for everyone. Thanks again!

Jessica Rankin

18 June 2011 We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the evening with Jonah Pearl at our son's wedding on Saturday evening, 6/18, at Providence Country Club. Jonah did a wonderful job and we really appreciated his personal attention to wedding guests. It made the evening so  much fun from beginning to end. Ryan and Leigh were so happy they chose Split Second Sound for their special day. We were very pleased with professional service Jonah provided. He should be commended for making our evening memorable.

My husband and I were so thrilled with our DJs- Neil and Jonah.  We didn't worry about a thing all night and were sad when it was time to leave the party.  The constant comments from our guests since the wedding have been about how they could've stayed on the dance floor all night long.  Thank you so much for being a part of our most important party ever!

Jamie Warnken

 Jonah was the perfect fit for the wedding and reception.  His energy, enthusiasm, and attention to detail was excellent.  During the event he often engaged the guests, asking for requests and encouraging everyone to get up and participate.  From all of the comments received afterwards, everyone had a great time.
    I would certainly use Split Second Sound again when the need arises for a party with a DJ and I would definitely request Jonah.
    I would definitely provide a reference for anyone who is considering using Split Second Sound.

7 May 2011 Wow, what a great Sweet 16 party we just had for our daughter!  Great because of the energy created by Split Second Sound, which I have to say was amazing.  Not only did 65 teenagers dance for 4 straight hours, but my 80-something mother-in-law was even caught "head-bopping" throughout the evening.  Every one who attended our party went away with a smile and a big THANK YOU, and I have to say I give credit to my wife, who planned the party, and Split Second Sound, who made it complete!  What I was most impressed with was the high-tech/high-end equipment that was used by the guys.  Initially, I thought we were going to get the typical "backyard DJ" at our party, but I was extremely and pleasantly surprised at all the equipment used, including lighting, video monitors, and the high-end sound system!  We'll DEFINITELY be using these guys again for future parties.........I may even have my wife start planning one now! Thanks Split Second Sound!

5 March 2011 I just wanted to thank everyone, Vinny, Diane, Jonah and Steve, for an amazing time at our son's wedding reception this past Saturday!!! We had such a fun time!! Jonah was the hit of the party!! He led us through dances and made everyone feel invited on the dance floor to have FUN!! Jonah and Steve were very professional and had alot of compliments from everyone that attended the reception!! Again, we want to thank you... We love you!!

9 October 2010   Thank you Jonah Pearl and Split Second Sound for an awesome job at the Hinely / Reid Wedding Saturday night, October 9th.  We were amazed at the professional way Jonah conducted himself as the MC, as well as the perfect timing of all the music.  The music itself was exactly what our bride chose and you nailed it exactly!  We were so pleased with all the music, the sound system, and the special lighting was a bonus we just loved.  Thank you again for taking us on at the last minute.  We have wonderful memories of this special celebration that you helped make possible.  Thank you so much!!!

2 October 2010 Hey everything was wonderful!!!!!!! My reception was amazing and Jonah was AWESOME!!!!! He played everything that I wanted to hear and then some..... All of my guests even complemented on what a wonderful DJ I had. We couldn't have asked for more and you can definitely use me as a reference.Thanks so much for making my reception amazing Jonah gets 5 stars in my opinion!!!!!!!!

Holly Pearson

4 February 2011 Jonah has been the most reliable and enjoyable Dj we have had all year. We have utilized Jonah's services for four separate events now and each time have been extremely pleased with him. He is not only a talented DJ but enjoys getting involved with the crowd which just helps build up the atmosphere even more. Most importantly, Jonah was extremely easy to work with and very flexible with the chaotic schedules that many fraternities live by. I would recommend Jonah as a DJ to anyone who is looking to have a great time listening to great music.

16 April 2013 We had an amazing experience. I have seen split second sound in action before at the Ritz Carlton and I knew I was in for great service and a ton of fun. Jonah was fantastic from the very beginning with his friendly emails and willingness to help. He really made the process fun and stress free. Our wedding was absolutely seamless from the ceremony, to cocktail hour, to the fabulous reception and I can honestly say that Jonah made that happen! He and Demar kept the reception running smoothly even with our crazy families. I could not have asked for a better DJ for our wedding!

31 December 2010 The NYE party was a huge success!! ... We really liked Jonah a lot. He took everyone’s requests and also did our count down for us at midnight. I enjoy working with him; he’s very cooperative with the staff and members. We made a good team throwing a fabulous party!!

Nicole Wilson

12 June 2010 "I couldn't have asked for a better performance.  He called me prior to the event to go over some music, get some specific details regarding the type of event, age group, etc. Needless to say, I only gave him a very broad genre of music and his playlist hit the nail on the head!  He was very flexible and accommodating to every request thrown at him that night as well as for the extra time we kept him there for! ...I would highly recommend your company and definitely Jonah in the future!"

Jonah and his partner Danny at Split Second Sound did an amazing job at my wedding! I'm so glad I found Split Second Sound at the Charlotte Bridal fair in 2012! I knew then that I would choose them as DJs! Everything went perfect! Everyone has complimented me on the DJ's entertainment and everyone had a great time! I would definitely use them again, and would recommend to everyone. They made everything go so smoothly. Again, thank you and great job guys!

3 March 2013 Jonah is the best!!!  I won't lie we had super high expectations since my husband and I both work at ballantyne country club and have seen him in action so many times.  He BY FAR exceeded anything we were expecting!! He was amazing, we heard compliments about him all evening and are still hearing them!! Not only is he an amazing DJ but an amazing MC (and dancer) and he absolutely kicked a$$ at our wedding!!!
