Mike N

Instagram_AppIcon_Aug2017
At just 14 years old, Mike began his career as a DJ, working house parties and learning the tricks of the trade. He quickly began spinning in clubs and eventually transitioned into starting a company of his own in the metro NY/NJ area. Years later, after Mike, his wife, and their three boys relocated to North Carolina, he joined the Split Second family. Mike is a pro when it comes to reading a room, and this sets him apart from others. He won’t just hit play and hope that people get up and dance. He takes note of his audience, expanding the music as time goes on and adjusting accordingly. Mike’s great attention to detail and ability to stay proactive and keep the party going, allow him to deliver exactly what’s wanted and more. All of this, along with having over 30 years of DJ experience, make him an outstanding DJ for any event. One of Mike’s most memorable DJ moments was when he DJed the wedding of Michael Jordan’s niece. He fondly remembers getting Michael Jordan out on the dance floor, dancing to his mixes and absolutely loving it. His favorite memories as a DJ also include his work done at the Make-A-Wish Foundation parties. Seeing the ecstatic looks upon the faces of those involved, makes it all worth it for Mike.

    It was a wonderful experience! Mike, you created a wonderful night by not only playing what we requested, but keeping the party going with great music choices! Thank you for guiding the night through with announcements, checking in with Joe and I and playing everything we asked you to. You are welcome to use us as a reference.

    Thanks so much, Mike. I enjoyed working with you and you definitely kept the dance floor packed all night. Look forward to future events with you and Split Second!

    OMG!!    Just recovering and my family is still here!!    Mike, I have to tell you...I've done over 300 parties. I was an MC for 15 years, and I was probably your most critical client to date. I was not only nervous, but ready to take over if necessary. And I'm not kidding. Can you imagine hiring a DJ to do your kid's party? ;)    But I was thrilled with your performance. Period. End of story. I felt at ease the minute we met, and the party started. I have never seen my kid so happy...and 100 others so excited!! To say I was impressed is an understatement. And anyone who books another company is a fool!    Bradley was beyond. His energy and enthusiasm was contagious. He connected with the kids, and the adults. I adored him. And he worked his ass off...never a dull moment. People are still talking about how phenomenal he was with all those kids!     Mark and I have already made a call to secure your "team" for Zac's Party on April 1, 2017...and if you're not there with Bradley, I'll freak! You made the party the success it was.    Thank you, thank you!!    And your female dancer was a superstar! She rocked it out, and never stopped. My kinda girl! Split Second Sound is the only Entertainment company worth having at any event in my opinion....   Simply amazing!    And I could be a guest at my own party. Wow. I never thought that could ever happen. I'm so thankful.    See you in April, 2017!

    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.

    Mike was a great addition to our festival. On a college campus, there is quite a diverse crowd, and Mike did a great job catering to every age, as well as engaging them all! He had us all up and dancing- something I didn’t imagine would happen. I am so thankful we had Mike on campus, he really created the energetic atmosphere we were after. We had several last minute requests and announcements that we asked of him and he was so quick to roll with the punches with us. Very professional, timely, patient and so fun! I will definitely be calling him up again! And thank you for your help, I have received such positive feedback on your music- be ready to join us again!

    Mike was fantastic as always. He is consistent in reading crowds, even the "tough" crowds. By the end of the night, the crowd who "didn't like to dance" was singing and throwing their hands up in the air on the dance floor, and the bride who dispised attention and didn't care for dancing spent most of her night in the center of the floor. Thanks as always, Mike!

    These guys ROCKED! Very Professional! The experience we had with Split Second Sound was phenomenal! From the first contact we had planning the party all the way until after the party was over, Mike was right there with us.  During the planning process, he stayed on the ball; making sure each detail of the night was to our satisfaction. During the night of the party, he arrived on time and was set up and ready to go on time. He made sure everything was in order and kept the music playing all night. His assistant Ben, kept the dance floor hot and had people up dancing the whole night. All our employees were raving over the DJ. We will for sure be using Split Second Sound for all our future events and would recommend to anyone looking for a Great Party!!!

    Split Second Sound was extremely easy and pleasant to work with and to discuss our needs for our elementary school event.  They were open to our ideas and also gave us many ideas.  Mike and Julian did an excellent job with the music and the activities during the event and the kids (and parents) had  blast!  We will definitely continue to use them for future school events.

    We received so many positive comments and feedback. Our attendees said that was the best DJ we have ever had, they really enjoyed themselves.   Some of our staff members danced all night ( that normally does not happen)! Mike did a fantastic job with playing  music from new to old school and various artist.   He also went over and beyond, he offered to play background music during our dinner program. It added a very nice touch.   Our 2016 President e-mailed us last week and she know wants a DJ for her Installation event. Split Second has now set the standards of having a DJ instead of our typical bands.

    My experience with Split Second Sound was amazing. With a million things on my plate leading up to the wedding it was nice to know I didn't have to worry about the DJ. Mike was professional, responsive, and made the entire process of prepping for the event super simple. My dad even connected with him to plan a little surprise for me and it went off without a hitch! I'd recommend SSS to anyone.

    We were referred to Split Second Sound for our wedding by a friend who had used their services in previous years for her company's Holiday party. This was appealing to us as we would have a multi-generational crowd, and it was important to play music that would be enjoyable to everyone. The staff at Split Second was very attentive to our needs and worked with us to make sure that our requests were properly considered. Fortunately, we were assigned Michael Glass to handle our special day.   Mike contacted us and walked us through the process so that we would all have the same expectations on the night of our event. He was thorough in his questions and made sure that we considered very important elements such as the last song of the night. (GREAT call for ending on a high note!!) Our wedding was less than traditional, so we had a few unique requests that were easily accommodated by Michael and the Split Second staff. Because of this, we were able to enjoy a seamless evening that matched our personal touches.   By the end of the night, ALL of our guests commented that ours was the most fun wedding they had been to in a while. Michael Glass paid careful attention to our needs and the mood of the crowd which provided the perfect soundtrack to our night. I would highly recommend Michael from the musical enjoyment of any event.

    My husband, Josh and I researched vendor after vendor for our wedding. Split Second Sound however, was a definite from the moment we met with Vinny. The process SSS has in place helps us crazy brides every step of the way! After completing the online portion (which breaks down each section of the wedding) a DJ was assigned. Our DJ, Mike, was amazing! He worked with our schedule as we coordinate times to discuss our big day. I had absolutely no worries and our ceremony and reception turned out just as planned! We had a wide range of guests from babies to great grandparents and EVERYONE was on the dance floor all night long! SSS knows just how to make your day unique and special. I still continue to hear how our wedding was a blast and wouldn't have changed a thing!

    Let me say how much I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mike last weekend. As I told him, he was very professional, a great personality/MC, and very good at reading the crowd and keeping things mixed up, especially in never playing a full song. I loved his style and he is definitely added to my preferred list!

    Split Second Sound was everything we hoped for.  Mike was easy to work with, played those “must have” songs we requested and selected songs that were perfect for our group.  He also had married couples come out and highlighted their years of marriage.  It was a beautiful touch.

    A big ‘Thank You’ to SSS for the wonderful job they did for our wedding.  Mike and his assistant were amazing!  Mike did an AWESOME job picking songs… everyone said they loved the choices he made.  The second DJ (assistant) was FANTASTIC, encouraging our guests to come out and dance on the dance floor.  We couldn't have imagined a better day!

When i met with him and explained that I thought it might be difficult to DJ for our reception because we had so many international guests, we threw out some ideas together on music and he made sure everything went smoothly. Even his funny commentary on our first dance, the drunk guest who dropped the glass on the floor, and the introductions made our reception so memorable. Everyone said this was the most fun wedding they've ever attended and I credit that to Rashaad and Mike.
