Michael G.

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. 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.

    Again Michael, I can't thank you enough for DJing our wedding.  From the very first meeting with you, Tom and I felt excited and comfortable with knowing that you understood exactly what we wanted.  Everything was perfect.  From the fun intro, to the last song, we loved every second. I've never seen so many people on a dance floor at a wedding. We also loved all of the special moments; first dance, dances with our parents, anniversary dance, cake cutting song, garter and bouquet toss.  Everyone raved about how much fun they had, and you had so much to do with that. I would recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat!  You have a passion for your job, and it shows.  Thank you so much- we will remember you as a part of our special weekend forever!

    We had a blast!! We're so happy that Michael could attend our wedding/reception and DJ for us. Him and his assistant did an amazing job.  I've actually gotten several compliments from guests on the DJ selection and have already referred you guys!! Someone commented that they loved the way your assistant got out on the dance floor and helped get the dance party started.  A few others commented on the way you made the reception flow. And, of course, everyone loved the great song my sweet husband picked out. :)   We REALLY enjoyed your work and will definitely refer you to others!!!   Thanks again for a great experience!

    We had such a good time at our reception. DJ Michael made it so fun. We had such good feedback from our guests about how much fun you were. I would recommend Split Second Sound to anyone, and especially you as their DJ. Thank you.

  • Anthony & Stephanie Tatum
    Michael, you were fantastic! Your ability to accompany the guests and give the party some great energy was exactly what we wanted. Everyone commented on how much they loved the music (and DJ).  Also, being able to work on the fly when things didn't go exactly to plan was essential to the flow of the evening. You are awesome! You did such a good job working with the Yacht Club when the storm came in. I was most impressed when you rallied everyone and introduced us. And The Music Was Perfect!! You played everything I asked and blended it nicely with your own special touch :) I couldn't have asked for a better DJ, you the man!! Thanks again!

    Thank for everything Michael! You did a wonderful job :) The reception was a bit of a blur for me... so much going on! But I do remember being pleased with all the songs that were played. I heard small portions during the cocktail hour and it was beautiful. Things got more lively right on schedule too! Once I could breathe again and cooled off after my wardrobe change, I was in much better spirits and ready to dance. Very fun vibe. I know my mom appreciated you getting the crowd lively for her performance. Thank you for helping to plan that... it was special! I honestly don't have any constructive criticism. Everything went according to plan. I will definitely keep your info to pass along to future brides!

    YOU WERE AMAZING LAST WEEK MICHAEL!  So many of the parents really appreciated your mix of current & our generation music.  All the kids loved the music as well & were dancing/singing while in the pool. I had to go to Braesael on Monday & I even told them just how amazing you were. I have written down your name so that I can request you for any future events.

    I would like to take time to tell everyone how great Michael and the entire staff at Split Second Sound was for my wedding. From the first meeting with Vinny, my experience was very helpful. I was referred by a friend of mine that used Split Second Sound for their wedding also. Once I finalized my contract and other details, my MC/DJ was chosen by the questions I answered. I can't say enough about my MC/DJ Michael Glass for my wedding on May 30, 2015. If I called him or emailed, he got back with me right away. He never once didn't do anything I asked for about songs, etc. He told me It's my day and he was there for us" which he meant that. He did an awesome job at the wedding reception. I would highly recommend using Split Second Sound to anyone I know."

    YES....We love you guys. Mike and Michael did a fantastic job for our event. I am the owner of The Petal Shoppe of Monroe, Inc. I will recommend your team to all my brides. Please drop some business cards off to us or mail them. I will be more than happy to pass them to our customers. We average 75+ weddings a year.   I really appreciate the way he worked with our event. Like everyone, we kept changing the order of things. Mike did a great job rolling with the changes. I appreciated the music he selected as we left a lot of that up to him.   I only have great things to say about the job Mike did for us.

    Normal 0 false false false EN-US ZH-CN X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Kudos to Split Second Sound for helping to make our wedding day so wonderful! From my initial meeting last September up until the big day, I knew I had partnered with the right company to really bring my party to life.  I was so glad we decided to hire the best professionals in the business because it really helped make the process painless and effortless, and the results were exactly what we hoped for.  Michael met with me and Brad several weeks before our wedding day, and quickly understood the feel and energy we wanted to capture.  I walked away feeling totally confident we were going to get what we wanted, and I appreciated the professionals taking the wheel and handling the details.  From the very start, Michael and Neil set the tone for the wedding and were able to deliver what I wanted in ceremony music.  We took a slightly less traditional approach, and I have to say, I received compliments throughout the evening on the selections. My reception was full of "good time" guests, and that is exactly what they got! Michael and Neil read the crowd so perfectly and kept the dancing going from the 1st song to the last.  I am so glad I selected Split Second Sound and would use them again for upcoming events and most definitely recommend them to anyone!  Thanks again for being such an important part of our big day!!  The memories we made (especially on the dance floor) will last us a lifetime!  You really did create an experience worth every penny.  /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman","serif";}
