Joey - MC DJ Entertainer

Joey started DJing on a radio station in Italy. He is fluent in English and Italian. Growing up listening to rock and eventually learning to appreciate hip-hop, pop, and freestyle, country was added to the list after Joey moved down south. At 19, he began to work for Fat Cat Productions in Long Island. After a few years, a friend of Joe’s pushed him to go out on his own. He purchased his own equipment and started his own company working part time. Joe had big ideas that inspired his friends to call him “Joey Dreamer”, which was later adapted to DJ Dreamer. In early 2000s, Joey came to visit Charlotte and decided to make it his permanent home. He began working for Split Second Sound in 2003. Being one of the original 4 DJ’s, he has since worked weddings of all cultural backgrounds, along with a multitude of events and parties. 

A quote that Joey relates to is, “Music is a piece of art that goes into the ears and straight to the heart." He incorporates this belief with every event. Wedding days are not about the DJ but about the Bride and Groom, the atmosphere of the party, the flow of the music, and the overall experience of the moments being shared. Joey’s passion and diligence begin when he meets the Bride and Groom. He pays attention to every detail by practicing active listening as the clients describe their vision and music style. He then spends time preparing by compiling all of his research, conversations and experience to apply it to the event. Joey’s goal is to not just be a DJ but create a relationship with the client. By doing this, he ensures that the party is as personalized as it could possibly be.

FAQ

"We were extremely happy with our DJ, Joey.  We had a bit of unexpected bad weather (we were supposed to have the ceremony and reception outside on the roof) and did not know until near last minute everything was being moved inside. By the time I got to the venue about an hour before the ceremony, Joey had already set up everything inside in both the ceremony room and separate reception room. The website you all have is great and we had all the information pre-filled.  Joey called us a week or so before and we walked through everything.  There really is not one complaint I would have about your services (Split and Joey) from start to finish. Our sisters even planned a little surprise song during the toast that they coordinated with Joey separate from us (they surprised us with it) and that went off seamlessly as well. We would be more than happy if you use us as a reference for others. Please pass along to Vinny and Diane what a great job Joey did and that we appreciate all of you and the great company you all have. "

"I just wanted to thank you for everything for our daughter's wedding on Saturday night. Joey was fabulous and the evening couldn't have been better! We had people dancing until the lights came on - I don't think I've ever been to a wedding or an event where there's still such a large group dancing till the end! I was so impressed with Split Second Sound! Thank you again for everything."

Matt & Elizabeth Welch

19 July 2014 "Joey and the secondary DJ (didn't catch his name) did a fantastic job at our wedding! We received many compliments on the music and uplighting. They played the perfect song at the perfect moment and the fact that you all were able to play traditional Laotian music was great (my family members really appreciated this!) We couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again for providing such exemplary services!"

"Anthony, Thanks again for your help that day we had such a great time with you and Joey I wish we could do it all over again. All my feedback is positive, Joey was great on the planning end and really helped us nail down our timeline when we met with him. I'm so glad that y'all knew Eric and Patrick as I feel like that took a lot of stress of me and my Mom in the coordinating aspect. Thank you again for making our day so fantastic and I will definitely be recommending you to all of my friends and clients that I work with. Looking forward to my friend Kristina's wedding next May so I can party with you all again!"

Melonie Murray

27 June 2015 "Everyone at Split Second Sound was very helpful with planning our wedding reception. Our DJ, Joe Verde took into account the demographics of our guests and the mood we wanted to establish and made the entire evening fun. We had people of all ages on the dance floor from beginning 'til end! I highly recommend Split Second Sound."

Sergio & Patricia Ciccone

3 October 2015 "Split Second Sound is a very professional operation from start to finish. They meet with you to find out what you want/need, and help you choose a DJ to match your expectations. They are very responsible and helpful with coordination, and keep things running smoothly (without being over-the-top) at the reception. In our case, this was extra important since there was not much coordination at the venue. Joey did a great job keeping our wedding guests involved and enjoying themselves!"

John & Joanna Sutton

9 April 2016
"I wanted to send a sincere Thank You to Joey & Split Second Sound! Joey did the most amazing job at our wedding last Saturday 4/9 @ The Mint Museum! We continue to get compliments from all of our guests that this was the best wedding ever. Joey kept the event running smoothly & played such a great variety of music that the guests danced the entire night, which was impressive because we had over 2.5 hours of just dancing scheduled! I have been a bridesmaid 11 times before and have also attended other weddings... I know a DJ can make or break the event. We didn't know Joey previously and picked him off the website based on the video. What a great pick!! Please let us know what we can do to help promote Joey & Split Second Sound. He helped make our wedding day the best day ever!"

Nick & Carissa Mucci

9 April 2016 "AMAZING EXPERIENCE! We had 2 DJ's & uplighting for our wedding on 4/9. We chose Joey to be our lead DJ & he knocked it out of the park! We had over 2.5 hours of just dancing at our reception & our guests danced until the very end without wanting to stop! He made sure everything was seamless & I cannot say enough positive things about our reception because of him! If you want a top notch DJ, look no further!"

"We just want to thank Joey Verde and the team at Split Second Sound for the phenomenal job you did for our wedding ceremony and reception! Joey listed to everything I wanted and even put together a fun mix-up for the father daughter dance (and ahead of time so we could practice).  It was the best day of our lives and you all catered to our every wish and desire... It was so much fun!! All of our guest complimented the amazing time they had and how awesome the music was. We all had a BLAST!! SSS will be highly recommended by us and bar far is the #1 DJ Service in Charlotte. We love you all and can't thank you enough!!

Mr. & Mrs. Cooper"

Eric & Jessica Cooper

17 September 2016 "We absolutely loved working with Split Second Sound. Our DJ, Joey, created custom tracks for the father/daughter and mother/son dance. He checked in with me the week before the wedding to ensure everything was in order. He also asked for must-play songs and created the perfect playlist for our reception. He even hooked up a guitar so my brother could surprise us with a serenade. Our hype man/MC, Andre, was also a blast. He got our guests dancing in no time. From the moment we arrived at our reception, Joey and Andre took care of us. They kept everything running like clockwork which enabled us to fully enjoy every moment. Thank you SSS!"

Matthew & Amy Chapman

4 June 2016

"The team at Split Second Sound and my lead DJ Joey Verde were absolutely amazing! I requested to meet with Joey about two months before our wedding and he helped me plan the reception down to every minute! He also recommended songs for each of the events I was indecisive about and his choices were perfect! I had countless people come up to me at the wedding and after telling me it was the best wedding they had ever been to and they all credited how great a job Joey did! Once the dance party started, Joey kept the entire group of 170 people on the dance floor the entire night! I wish I could live this weekend over and over, and I would have SSS there every time!"

Matt & Hannah Hughston

3 September 2016 "These are the best DJ's in town! I got married September 3rd and Joey Verde was our dj and he exceeded our expectations! When we first met with him he immediately knew the kind of vibe and music we wanted for the entire event( ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception) just by naming a few songs. We didn't have to worry at all about the "music" part of wedding planning when we left our first meeting. Not only do they help with the music they work with your venue/wedding planner to help move things along such as toasts and cake cutting, etc.. We wanted to get through the formalities as quickly as possible and having Joey help keep us on schedule was really nice treat. Everyone had a blast and really enjoyed the music! I highly recommend this company and especially Joey Verde!!"

Brandon & Colleen Crouse

"Joey,

 

Thank you so much for being apart of our big day! We couldn't be happier with everything you did! You are an amazing dj and everyone really enjoyed the music and the flow of everything. I knew after our first meeting with you that we were in good hands and you didn't disappoint! I will continue to recommend you and Split Second Sound to my friends/family.

The entire day was perfect but the last dance was one of my favorite parts :) having everyone on the dance floor dancing to my favorite song was the icing on the cake!

 

Thank you again for everything! You are wonderful.

 

Colleen Graves"

10 September 2016 "Hi Joe! We were 100% happy with our whole experience with you and Jonathan our DJ for my daughters wedding! Jonathan kept the crowd pumped the whole evening! He was right on target with all of the ceremony music, first dances and all of the songs we had picked out. All our expectations were met and we highly recommend Split Second Sound!"

Joanna Ayers

"Joey,

 

Thank you SO MUCH for giving us exactly what we wanted.  The packed dane floor is key to any Indian wedding, and I'm so glad the guests were receptive to the music.  I had people coming up and telling me the music was great and that this was the Wedding of the Year.  I know we had some hiccups at the beginning with the Jago having to be played 3 times, but of course that's mom's fault, not yours :)  I want to go back and do it all again right away.  Thank you so much for such a wonderful night, and we appreciate your well wishes.  

 

We know who to call in the future for more parties!!  And ps-if you want to share that excel sheet with other brides, like as a template, i hereby give you copyright permission.  Just give me a little credit on the sheet :)"

Amrita & Brent Bowers

1 October 2016 "If I can give 100 stars I would! We went with Split Second Siund for our wedding on Oct. 1, 2016 and we are so happy we did! Joey (our Dj) was amazing! He did an amazing job keeping the party going and merging two cultures (Italian and American)! He is professional and does a great job! We had so much fun! Also! SSS was affordable and their online form made it so easy to stay organized! I promise you will not be disappointed if you went with them! They definitely exceeded our expectations!!"

Josh & Pietrina Peshel

26 November 2016 "Split Second Sound was absolutely amazing! Joey and Steve were phenomenal- they had our guests on the dance floor all night long! They made my husband and I feel comfortable throughout the whole process and helped with so many song options that we hadn't even thought about for our reception. They even created an amazing mash-up of Enter Sandman (Go Hokies!) and the Buffalo Bills Shout song to truly personalize our special day. If you are looking for a DJ to take your wedding to the next level...Split Second is where its at!"

Alanna

15 October 2016 "When I hired Split Second Sound for my 300+ Indian wedding, I knew I was in good hands. They knew exactly what to play and had all of the Indian music we had requested ready to go for a fun night of dancing. There was never a dull moment, and Joey Verde made my wedding the perfect night. The details that were included were awesome, and they really make you feel at ease and that they know what they are doing-that's not always the case with DJs, especially some Indian ones. I may not have been the easiest bride to deal with during the reception, as people kept telling me to tell the DJ to put something else on or play that song again, but Joey took it all in stride because he wants you to have a great time at your wedding, and he succeeded. They did an amazing job, and I would recommend them to anyone that's getting married, or just wants to have a great dance party. Thanks Joey and Split Second Sound!"

Brent & Amrita Bowers

25 March 2017 "Joey & Andre were fantastic! Joey is very organized and listened to things we liked and didn't like prior to our wedding. He was able to make recommendations to our timeline that our Day Of Coordinator hadn't thought about and it made everything run smoothly. Our only complaint about our wedding was our dance floor wasn't big enough! Joey really knows how to make everyone get on the dance floor and have a great time. Our wedding was the party we wanted because of Joey and Split Second Sound. Thanks for everything!"

Stuart & Alissa Farrow

29 October 2016 "Joey and his team were great to work with. The dance floor was packed the entire night. I would highly recommend!"

Kevin & Logan Gilbert

26 November 2016 "Joey was the DJ for our wedding and was spectacular! Our friends kept telling us how good the music was the next day. Highly recommended!!"

"Split Second Sound and in particular Joey, the MC / DJ was beyond one of the best choices I made for my wedding! I know that I may be one of the few brides who can truly say my wedding went off without a hitch! It was absolutely amazing and a huge part of the success of my wedding was due to Joey and split second sound! His kindness and generosity was completely unexpected and over the top! He did not just play music at my wedding, he interacted with every one of my family members and guest and to this day; a month later, everyone is still talking about how kind and amazing and thoughtful he was! He wanted every single person at my wedding to have a good time! He made sure that every person was engaged and having fun! He was one of the best decisions I could have made! I would recommend him to anyone! If there was a way to give him 100 stars, I would! Thank you Joey and Split Second Sound for making my day as magical as I ever dreamed!"

Zack & Hannah Riera

9 March 2013 Erin and I would like to thank you for a job exceptionally well done at our Founders Hall wedding on Saturday night.  

You were with us every step of the way from the start of the process to throughout the wedding.  We thank you for reaching out immediately after we booked our event with Vinny, meeting with us on your day off to review event details, for reviewing the detailed timeline prior to the wedding, for graciously allowing us to make a last minute change to the parents' dance, and for keeping us informed  of where we were on the overall timeline during the event as needed.  We worked with you to set expectations for how long we wanted to perform our first dance and the hava nagila, asked that you please pronounce my father's last name correctly, and to ensure everyone had a blast.  You came through with flying colors, as the feedback from our family and friends has been nothing short of fabulous.  Everyone has said it was a fantastic, beautiful event.  Again, we thank you for playing a lead role in making this important milestone event in our lives such a wonderful success.

"We worked with Joey at SSS. He was phenomenal. We met up early on before our wedding, and immediately felt at ease. The moment the dance floor opened up at our wedding, people were out there - we could not have asked for a better experience!"

Chase & Lindsay Haislip

"Thank you SO SO much for everything!!! We had a blast and you were a large part of that! The music was a big deal to us- especially Scott, and you delivered for us, as we knew you would!

"Joey could not have done a better job at our wedding. It was the best night ever and so many guests have commented on how great Joey and his assistant did!! You can absolutely use me as a reference. Thank you for all that you did at SSS for our wedding!"

Matt & Hannah Hughston

7 January 2017 "Let me start by saying Joey and Giovanni were absolutely fantastic! I wouldn't change a thing about how our evening progressed with the music. I would totally use them again for future events. My family is Italian and Joey speaks Italian so that was also a plus for some of the older non-English speaking relatives. Yes, I would totally recommend them to anyone looking for an energetic, punctual, professional DJ/MC!"

Flavia Brucia

7 July 2012 "AMAZING DJs!! Split second played a huge part in making our wedding so successful!! We booked Joey for our wedding- he was very prompt, took the time to make sure he pronounced names correctly and made sure everyone was in the right place at the right time. We did not have to worry about anything! Joey was also great with taking requests for songs (even checking with the bride and groom before playing them!) and getting the whole crowd up and dancing! You will not regret your decision to choose this company!!"

Miguel & Kelly Isamat

23 June 2012 "Joey -- I knew from the first meeting you were the perfect DJ for our wedding. You and Split Second Sound were such a delight to work with. Thank you for making our day so special and for going above and beyond to make our day perfect!"

Jacqueline Chambers

21 April 2012 "I just wanted to take a brief moment to say thank you for the amazing job you did during our wedding at the Ballantyne. Everyone was so impressed by the flow of the reception, and the music/entertainment that you provided. The ceremony music was wonderful and perfect also. We honestly feel that we could not have chosen a better DJ! We hope you had as much fun as we did that night...we had an absolute blast! Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding even more special."

"We had a great experience with Split Second! They brought 3 people and the dancer was great about getting people out onto the dance floor. They were also great about communication before the event and making sure we were all on the same page. Would definitely recommend!"

Joshua & Jessica Banks

17 December 2011 "Split Second Sound was absolutely amazing. My DJ's, Joey and Levar, were amazing. They made my wedding reception flow perfectly and I couldn't have asked for better DJ's. My wedding was no alcohol and they still got people on the dance floor! Any questions I had were responded to same day via email. They have many different package options for every budget. They made sure to call the week before the wedding and do a step by step walk through with me so I knew exactly what was going to happen. I didn't have to worry about anything on the wedding day and it was perfect!"

Myles & Ashley Eckel

12 November 2011 "Everyone absolutely LOVED Joey!! He was perfect! It was even better than my other daughter's wedding reception with Split Second Sound four years ago! Thank you!!"

"Everything was wonderful! Joey is absolutely wonderful, of course! He was there super early to make sure everything ran perfectly, and it did. He did exactly what he said he would do-- which was make sure the day was exactly how the bride and groom wanted it to be! We’ve already had people ask us who the great DJ was and have highly recommended Split Second Sound!"

Caroline Williams - Mother of the Bride

Evan & Julie Steppe

7 May 2011 "I can not say enough about these guys. Split Second came from a co-worker recommendation and visiting at a bridal show, what I got was the best around. I have to say from the first introductions at the office to the end of the wedding night, nothing but FIRST CLASS treatment. The DJ selection was easy, Joey was fantastic! The music selection was easy... we had a little of everything. The ceremony was flawless. The party was hopping. I have pictures of 150+ people dancing and having a blast! All the comments from friends and family included how much fun they had! Our wedding was a great success... with a large part due to Joey and his partner @ Split Second Sound!!!..."

Chuck & Mistee Formica

4 June 2011 "Joey and Lerone did a fantastic job at my daughter's wedding reception! We had a fabulous time! They were both very professional and friendly with our guests.

Thanks Split Second Sound!"

Amy Bush - Mother of the Bride

3 April 2011

"Joey has a great personality and a great talent and knack at these weddings! First, he did my sister’s wedding, so we knew he’d be good. April 3rd was the best day ever! I’ve never smiled or danced so much in all my life. Joey took care of all the details of both the ceremony and reception and it was perfect! Thanks so much."

Joe & Katherine Lane

Jim & Jade Jensen

27 November 2010 "We had the best time with you guys on our wedding day! Everyone commented on how smooth everything was and how it was a constant flow of fun! Joey and Dennis did a great job keeping the dance floor full and hoppin! One thing in particular that we loved was the fact that once dinner was over, all of the formalities were out of the way that way the party never stopped! Joey did a great job interacting with all of our guests, everyone LOVED him!"

Emily Addison

9 October 2010 "When it comes to top notch DJ services, Joey sets the standard. When it comes to an amazing personality and the ability to work a room, Joey is the guy you want behind the DJ board. Joey and Aksel made our night. As a former DJ, I am a firm believer that the success of your reception rests on the quality and caliber of the DJ. They can make or break the dance floor. To date, our guests still rave about our DJ. As a former DJ, that's music to my ears (no pun intended). We could not be more thrilled with Joey."

Jason Clough

2 October 2010
"Joey and Jordan were wonderful. Kate and Alex told me later that they really appreciated that Joey checked in with them thru out the night, helping them keep things on track and giving much appreciated guidance as the night went on. The music was perfect, and the dance floor was never empty. Loved the whole day, the reception was great, and lots of the credit for that goes to Joey and Jordan. Please thank them again for us."

Ann Bloom - Mother of the Bride

17 April 2010 "Joey did a great job! Easy to work with, very professional, stuck religiously to everything we asked, was a problem solver - all around great job. Lots of great comments from people on the music as well. Couldn't have asked for more! Please feel free to use us as a reference."

Kevin & Jenna Thomas

"We would like to thank Joey and Jonah for the INCREDIBLE job they did at our wedding reception.  We had a very diverse crowd and they were able to accommodate everyone's interests!  Joey kept everything running smoothly and communicated very well with us.  He let us know what would be coming up, when it would take place, and what we needed to do.  He was also willing to be flexible if we wanted to wait longer for the next part of the reception.  Everyone LOVED Jonah!  He was fantastic as a party motivator!  He was very friendly and just wanted everybody to have a great time...and we did!!  We did not give Joey very specific guidelines, but he managed to pick perfect songs to keep the party going!  EXCELLENT JOB GUYS!"

23 January 2010 "The overall experience was excellent!  All the guests raved about how great the DJ’s were and how well they catered to what everyone wanted to hear.  The DJ’s were both very energetic and eager to involve the audience in getting up and dancing and having a good time.  They made the entire wedding/reception experience wonderful and I would definitely recommend them and Split Second Sound to others."

If anyone would like a referral they can email me."

Michael & Anine C

16 March 2013 "I can't tell you enough how much we enjoyed working with your team.  From our initial consult, we knew Joey and your team would make sure our night was one to remember.
