Dennis - MC DJ About Me

We don’t just provide entertainment... We create it!

Dennis - MC DJ

Dennis is originally from New Jersey where he broke into the professional Mobile DJ scene. Although he does not have a music degree or was never in a band, Dennis was always the guy that handled the music. From turning his parents garage into a make shift club early in high school to hosting “house” parties in college and huge backyard events, it was all about the music. “DennisFest” was his brain child. It encompassed a live band, a ton of people, fireworks and Dennis spinning the tunes for an annual all-day/all-night party at his house. Like most mobile DJ’s, Dennis started working for a company. He listened to the advice of his family and friends and went off on his own creating Life’s A Party DJ Entertainment. Dennis has a passion and respect for what he does. His enjoyment comes from people having fun at his parties. His business model was simple: give people exactly what they want, involve them in the planning process, and deliver the best performance. In June 2009, it was apparent that he shared many of the same business philosophies and visions as Vinny and Diane. Dennis decided to bring his DJ business over to Split Second Sound DJ Services. Together, they have embodied the spirit of a full service company that goes beyond just being a DJ. Dennis is also involved in charitable events that give back to the Charlotte community. He is one of the organizers of an annual golf outing that benefits A Child's Place here in Charlotte, NC. A Child’s Place works to erase the impact of homelessness on children and their education. Dennis also regularly volunteers his services to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. He has provided entertainment and was the MC for the Stride and Ride event, brought the Wii party to the Muscle Team event at the Bank of America stadium, and does a Dance Party for the MDA summer camp.

MDA Summer Camp 2014
Posted on: September-20, 2014 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
Reading my blog you see a common theme of me volunteering my DJ services to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  I have been doing it since moving to the Charlotte area almost 10 years ago.Summer Camp is by far the most exciting event for the kids and as soon as it is over the begin counting down the days until next year.It is always an honor and a pleasure to help the MDA and seeing so many smiling faces is the greatest reward.  Over time I got to know some of the kids and their families.For the past two years the Dance Party had a black light theme with the kids, counselors and volunteers having a blast.Towards the end of the Dance Party is the graduation for the campers that have reached the age where they're not returning next year.  Counselor's always have amazing things to say about their graduates and it's very emotional.  We play the same 3 songs to close out the party each year....  read more »


New Town Elementary School End of Year Party
Posted on: June-21, 2014 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
As another school year closes I had the pleasure to be a part of the New Town Elementary School end of year party.  It was very HOT that afternoon and that did not stop the fun.Many vendors turned out with food, drinks along with ice cream and shaved ice (thank goodness).The kids and the parents had a blast dancing to some of their favorite songs.It is very important to play music that is appropriate for all ages.The challenge comes up when the older kids ask for songs that are not appropriate.I will not just say NO to someone, I will advise them that it's not on our playlist and lets think of another song.This works every time and everyone is happy, especially the person that requested the song.Here are some pictures from the event:...  read more »


Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden wedding ceremony and reception
Posted on: June-20, 2014 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
Recently I had the pleasure to help facilitate an amazing wedding at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden.The ceremony was in the White Garden and the weather was perfect.Patrick Maloy was the minister and his wife Dottie was the ceremony coordinator and together they are an amazing combination.  "Calm Blue Water" is their slogan and it's what they want their Brides and Grooms to think about during the ceremony rehearsal and the ceremony itself.Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is a beautiful and the facility shuts down prior to the event, leaving just the Bride/Groom and all of their guests.Alison and David were a pleasure to work with and the wedding day was a lot of fun.Family and friends came together and really enjoyed themselves.The wedding cake looked amazing and yes the flowers are edible although I didn't test the theory:At DSBG, look up and take a look at the dome:...  read more »

March always brings the Muscular Dystrophy Association's Muscle Walk to Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Sweet 16, Charlotte NC

Sunday January 19, 2014 was the Sweet 16 party for Sophia.  The party was at the Southa Charlotte Banquet Center which was transformed with decor that was coordinated by Diana, Sophia's mom.  You would have thought that a company was hired to deck out the place.  Kudos on the decor!The party was amazing, lots of dancing, great food and a happy crowd!This party was a lot of fun to be involved with, the planning was on point and the end result is a Sweet 16 party that the family and friends will remember forever!...  read more »


NYE event at The Big Chill
Posted on: January-06, 2014 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
This past New Year's Eve I was at The Big Chill for a 60th birthday party for Ellen.I have had the pleasure of getting to know Ellen.  As I spoke with the other vendors that worked with her they all had the same experience and felt the same about her.  She is a very sweet and compassionate woman and I was honored to be a part of her special night.There was an amazing turnout at the party, filled with family and friends that adored Ellen.It was one of the best NYE events that I have ever been a part of in DJing.It was a pleasure working with Allen from Crow Alley Films and the guys from The Professional Photography Group.The Big Chill was decked out and the decorations looked amazing!Guests had a blast!  Balloon drop at Midnight!Candy Bar…Cake pops and cake shots from The Wow Factor Cakes!It was an amazing party for an amazing woman and a night that will be remembered for a very long time!More pics:...  read more »


Charlotte Wedding at The Ritz
Posted on: October-19, 2013 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
On October 5, 2013 we were at The Ritz in Charlotte, NC.It's an amazing location, top notch service and a wonderful staff.Caroline and Cory had their ceremony on location.Seeing a trend and I will say it's hot on Pintrest right now...No need to brag on the food at The Ritz- it's AMAZING!  I enjoy watching them serve dinner.  You will not see them cary out the meal on a tray. NO- each server carries two plates and with precision they place the plate in front of the guests.  Each time I DJ at The Ritz I hear at least one guest say how cool it is.On to the party and what a party it was!Guests had a LOT of fun!  Caroline changed out of her wedding dress and put on a cocktail dress.I played "Sweet Caroline" and the place went nuts.Everyone jammed the dance floor and mobbed Caroline and Cory.It was a night to remember, a fun wedding, guests had a blast and danced the night away!The last song of the night- Journey's "Don't Stop Believing"Weddings like these I pinch myself as I know how fortunate I am to not only have the talent to DJ but to execute the flow of a wedding.  I don't just stand behind my gear and push buttons, a lot goes into a successful wedding and most of it the guests don't see or know about.All they know was...  read more »

Wedding at Peninsula Club, Cornelius NC
Posted on: June-20, 2013 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
On Saturday May 18th myself and my assistant Lydia had the pleasure of rockin' out with Caroline and Ryan Byrnes at the Peninsula Club.What an amazing wedding and it was a blast from start to finish.Nicki Cloud was the planner and a pleasure to work with, she is very attentive to detail.Speak of detail- Grainne from the Peninsula Club is on top of the details at each wedding I have worked with her.The crowd was amazing and couldn't wait to get to the dancing- check out the cool monogram, the pic doesn't do it justice in person.People were getting CRAZY on the dance floor.Here is Lydia having fun...We moved the crowd all night long, jumping from different genres and music styles.  The guests had so much fun and this was one of the wedding where it could have gone on for hours.  I always suggest we end on a super high note vs trying to drag it on longer.  I love it when so many guests come up and say "This is the BEST wedding I was at"  make me feel great.After the dancing we hustled the crowd outside for sparklers.Remember earlier when I said that Grainne was awesome- he she is in action getting ready to light the sparklers.Here comes the Bride and Groom!!!A last kiss before they head off......  read more »


MDA Muscle Team at Bank of America Stadium
Posted on: June-08, 2013 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
May 21,3013 found me and Jonah at the Bank of America stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers for the MDA Muscle Team event.Vinny Esposito, Panthers Game DJ, was onsite with the Split Second Sound van working on music.Hundreds of people showed up to support MDA, bidding on silent auction items along with a live auction and general donations.  Muscle Team brought in over $300,000!Hannibal, a crowd favorite, was amazing as usual and had everyone asking themselves "How did he do that?"  Muscle Team® is unlike any other charity event in Charlotte. This is not a formal, sit-down, black tie affair. The evening consists of fun activities, interactive entertainment, a variety of fine food and beverage stations and specialty auctions. The Muscle Team®event gathers top athletes and pairs them with a MDA® buddy, a local child living with a neuromuscular disease....  read more »


Beach wedding at Jetton Park, Cornelius NC
Posted on: June-08, 2013 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
Saturday May 25th was a beautiful day for Beth and Chris' wedding.  What made this one a little more special was the location- Jetton Park in Cornelius, NC.  The ceremony was set on the beach.  Jetton Park is a public park part of the Mecklenberg County parks system so there were on-lookers both on lad and in the water.So how did we provide the music?  Well of course a generator BUT not one of those crazy loud ones.  This is a generator that's certified for a campsite and has all the power needed for my ceremony system.  My QSC K8 is 1,000w of power and way more than enough clear and crisp sound.The generator is far enough away from the ceremony that the music totally drowns out the sound of it.The reception was at the multi use building not to far from the beach front and even the cake kept with the theme...A picture perfect ceremony followed by a fun reception made it a great day!FYI;  If you need a ring bearer, this guy may be able to help:...  read more »

Wedding Thank You Note
Posted on: January-09, 2013 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
I recently received the following Thank You note from a recent wedding.Being a part of a family for their special day and helping them create memories that last a lifetime is very special.I was in the middle of mixing the music during the reception, Paris comes running up to me and I'm thinking that she wanted to hear a song.Instead she hugs me and tells me that the reception is perfect and is exactly what she had dreamed it would be.Talk about making me melt.I'm blessed with the talent and the ability to DJ and MC.I love what I do and don't look at it as a job. Dennis, Thank you for being such an important part of our wedding day! Everything went off without a hitch and it could't have been done without your help. Our guests had such a great time and you kept the party going all night. Thanks again for making our wedding day the day we always dreamed of. we appreciate everything you did for us!

A wedding on December 15, 2012
Posted on: December-30, 2012 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
On December 15th I had the pleasure to be a part of the special day for Linda and Brandon.  It was located at The Hut in Pineville, a venue that can hold up to 100 people.  Now add Carrie Cassidy-Stuble, the Flower Diva, into the mix and BOOM- you have an amazing transformation.  Her flowers and decor was beautiful and added a lot of color to the room.  She went above and beyond for this event!Julia was my assistant for the evening and she was on her game, as usual.  Interacting with the guests and helping to show people that wanted to learn some of the latest dances, such as Gangnam Style.Having a fun reception was very important to Linda and her Mom, both were great to work with and get to know.The Bridesmaids rocked their boots for the event with jean jackets.  Totally fit into the theme of the wedding and the decor of the room.  It came together great.Linda's Uncle made all of the food and it was yummy!  Great southern themed food and of course Banana Pudding.Lots and lots of dancing with a variety of music.To end a great night, Linda and Brandon left via a sparkler exit....  read more »

The following is an email I received from the mother of the bride from last Saturdays wedding.It's great when I get these emails and or thank you cards from our clients.

Helping the MDA on December 8th 2012
Posted on: December-16, 2012 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
On Saturday December 8, 2012 I had the pleasure of helping the MDA - Muscular Dystrophy Association of Charlotte, NC.  Each year the MDA with sponsorship from local companies host a Family Holiday Party Brunch.Pictured above are some of the volunteers from Nation Gypsum Co here in Charlotte, NC.They arrive at 6am and begin preparing the brunch.The event is at St. Sarkis Apostolic Church who donate the space for the party and use of their kitchen.Lucas Coe and his amazing team from the MDA office do a wonderful job with putting on this event.The families arrive to a festive atmosphere with the room decorated and background music provided by myself of Split Second Sound.  There are a LOT of presents and prizes that are donated.  Lots of fun with the assistants helping pull the raffle tickets and hand out the prizes.The highlight of the morning is a visit from Santa!It is an honor and a pleasure to help at this and other MDA events.  The kids are amazing, full of love and joy.  ...  read more »

Uplights will change the look of a room
Posted on: July-19, 2012 | Post By: Dennis - MC DJ Mercurio
Adding uplighting to your event will change the look and feel of the room.  We use LED lights as they do not increase the temperature of the room like the older flood light did.  Uplights are available in different color to go with most any decor.  Prior to the uplights this was a stark white wall and now is transformed adding warmth and color to the room.Again the color can be changed to match the decor of the event.The Ballantyne Hotel transformed below.......  read more »

Saturday September 10th and Saturday September 17 I found myself at the Duke Mansion.  Both weddings had over 100 guests at each event.  The Duke Mansion is a wonderful location for a ceremony and reception plus they have rooms for guests to stay over night. Special thanks to Amanda Pagano from Isabels Corner Video for coming out to shoot us in action last night.  Eye Dialog provided upligts around the room and also had stars and a moon illuminated on the ceiling.The staff at Duke is amazing and lead by Jessica (I'm DJing her wedding in November) and also Dianna, they keep the food service moving in an efficient manner and we keep the music and flow of the event going.Split Second did the first wedding at Duke and we continue to be the number one DJ at the Duke Mansion.Duke Mansion along with Split Second Sound is an amazing combination......  read more »
