About Us

Vinny Esposito, co-founder of Split Second Sound, has been providing music and entertainment as a professional DJ/MC for over 30 years. Performing for the first time at a July 4th party on Long Island in 1982, Vinny worked hard to build his brand. Vinny also played guitar in regional bands, specifically “Diana” fronted by now wife Diane, and together they owned a 24-track digital recording and rehearsal studio called Split Second Studios.

Vinny and Diane moved to Charlotte in 1999 and quickly established their company as the most requested DJ company in the area, recently writing a record breaking 1391 events in 2019 (590 being weddings). Starting with 3 DJs on staff entertaining 40 total events in 2002, SSS now employs over 40 of the most talented MC/DJ Entertainers in the business.

In 2020, times are changing fast and having Entertainers who understand what todays generation of engaged couples want is key to staying on top of our game. Through consistent training, Split Second Sound DJs understand its more than just good music to turn an event into incredible memories!
Split Second Sound offers multiple DJs and packages to pick from and customize for your event. Our staff will even specifically help match you with your perfect Entertainer using our extensive Know Your Customer Form if you aren’t sure on a particular DJ. Consistency is the key to Split Second’s growth. SSS has been referred to, by a top Charlotte venue, as Starbucks in that, “You know what to expect every time - A great cup of coffee with different sizes and flavors. It doesn’t matter what DJ shows up or what package our clients book, I know what to expect and it’s always good.” We are very proud of the reputation we have built within Charlotte’s finest and strive at every event to continue that reputation.

90% of Split Second Sound’s business comes via referrals from either industry vendors or satisfied clients. Vinny states, “No business can grow as fast and as strong as Split without a solid reputation and having a great product, which is our staff of DJs.”

2011 was a groundbreaking year as Vinny became the Game Day DJ for the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America stadium. Five DJs and three party motivators work gamedays in and around the stadium, as well as draft day parties, TopCat cheerleader tryouts, Play 60 events, pep rallies, and so much more.

Vinny and SSS have even had multiple appearances on local TV and newscasts, including an appearance on TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress”.

In 2016, Split Second Sound launched Charlotte’s very first wedding TV Show “Charlotte Wedding Insider” on the local TV station WCCB (CW). The show provided tips and trends to brides-to-be but also showed off some of the amazing weddings Split has played a part of. We have worked hard for last 15 years to build up a name for Split Second Sound to play a vital role in the wedding industry and also promote its talented vendors.

Split Second Sound embodies family and values. All of our DJs are a part of a family team as several exclusive DJs have been with Split Second Sound for over 18 years. “No egos, just fun parties because if we don’t have fun, they’re not having fun,” says Vinny. “It is a group mindset to provide the best service based on what the client wants and that event needs. We don’t give a cookie cutter performance, but instead one designed to exceed everyone’s expectations every single time!”
