Also known as “Big Mike,” Michael prides himself on putting others before himself. Whether that be at home with his girlfriend and four children, or with his DJ career. Ever since his younger days growing up in Pittsburgh, Mike has always had a love for music. He grew up playing the guitar, piano, and saxophone moving on to DJing when his older brother sneakily tricked him into asking for a mixer for Christmas. From there, Mike and his brother taught themselves the ins-and-outs of DJing; playing for friends, family, and local parties. He finds joy in making others happy, performing as a DJ and a teacher in the classroom for over 13 years. Mike has the ability to connect with people of all different backgrounds, regardless of who they are. His main goal is to make every event that he performs memorable. No matter the size or type of event, Mike is creating memories for everyone involved. Some of Mike's most recently attended event locations have included The Ridge Asheville - Marshall, NC, Champagne Manor - Monroe, NC, Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation - Charlotte, NC, Green Gables Farm - Statesville, NC, Holiday Inn Center City - Charlotte, NC, Bechtler Museum - Charlotte, NC, and many more! With his glass always half-full, Mike finds the good in every situation, helping others to do the same through his involvement in the community. Through his fraternity (Alpha Phi Alpha), Mike is able to use his passion for music to direct church choirs in several states, helping to further teach the youth of America. It’s difficult for Mike to define what he does as ‘hard work,’ since music and making people feel comfortable and happy comes easily to him. He loves to spotlight other people’s inner values, love for music, and fun quirks. This is what makes him one of our most versatile DJs. Whatever your vision, Mike is right there with you working on making it come to life. His amazing, light-hearted, and thankful views on life have allowed Mike to create life-long friendships within Split Second Sound. He continues to grow these relationships whether he’s playing at the Carolina Panthers stadium, a school dance, or at a wedding. His goal is to form meaningful and unforgettable bonds with everyone.

I don’t know who else was involved in the planning of the virtual celebration today but y’all did a GREAT JOB. I’m usually a grinch about those types of things (especially this year!) but it was super fun and engaging. Really, really well done. Please share my appreciation with the rest of the team. You guys rock.Cheers
First of all – a great job. I was very impressed, and we have only gotten positive feedback. A quality product with very little lead time: thanks!
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the EOC. The MC was awesome. He was upbeat the entire time. The games encouraged everyone to engage with one another. Thanks for bringing staff together in such a joyful light. Teleworking from home, I don’t see many of my colleagues as often as I like. However, the EOC allowed me to collaborate with staff I had not seen in a while. Again, thanks for such a festive event!!!!!
“Must-Have Mike” Split Second Sound came highly recommended to us by a few of our other vendors. Once we were in contact with the company we decided to book Micheal Glass as our DJ. Mike was literally the life of our reception! I now understand what was missing from some of the other receptions I’ve been to recently. DJs are important, but the hype man takes your reception completely to the next level. Mike was the perfect addition to our wedding crew. Starting with meeting with us a few times prior to the wedding, Mike really got to know us as a couple and learned what message we wanted to send through our music selection and how hype we wanted to crowd to be. He customized our playlist to include all music we wanted to hear and even helped us to understand why we should choose certain songs over others when it comes to a large mixed crowd. During the reception, he was an awesome hype man and worked the whole time to keep the crowd involved and excited. He navigated Brandon and I through the events of the night humorously and without one dull moment. A highlight of our reception and what people still talk about even today is the dance battle. We all really enjoyed ourselves! Bottom line, we’ve already referred Mike to some of our friends. After our wedding night I can confirm that Mike with Split Second Sound is a must-have!
