DJ Charlie

Charlie fell in love with DJing at 13 years old. He was born in Dallas, Texas but was raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Charlie started with house music and began to master the art of mixing and blending music as he transitioned into hip hop and rap. Charlie’s ability to scratch, blend, and beat match has made him one of the best that Split has to offer. Behind the scenes, Charlie is raising his daughter as a single dad. He gives her such delicate care from having her involved in karate to going to eat lunch with her during school. Charlie is respectful and humble. From the moment you watch him at his craft, you will be blown away. His unique style allows him to speak through his music but does not restrict him to staying behind the booth. He will get out and lead the dancing when it is called for. He constantly works at his craft . He holds mixing workshops with his fellow DJs and spins at local bars all over Charlotte.  Some of Charlie's most recently attended event locations have included Loray Mill - Gastonia, NC, The Biltmore - Asheville, NC, Van Landingham Estates - Charlotte, NC, The Peninsula Club - Cornelius, NC, Magnolia Room - Rock Hill, SC, and many more! He is extremely notable in the Hispanic clubs. He is fluent in Spanish but is versed in several different cultures. He won the Rising Star award for DJs in 2012 and remains one of the most trendsetting DJs of Charlotte.

    We had Charlie as our DJ at our wedding at the beginning of June 2024 and he was wonderful! He arrived on time, had all the equipment needed for both an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception, he announced everyone’s names perfectly, did not talk over the music, made the right announcements when he was supposed to, and played incredible music that kept people dancing all night. We had so many guests tell us the dance floor was so much fun. Thank you Charlie and SSS for helping us make our wedding day so great!

    We had an amazing experience at our wedding with Dj Charlie from Split Second Sound. He was simply outstanding! With his fenomenal playlist and impeccable timing, he kept the dance floor alive and the party going from start to finish. His talent and professionalism truly made our celebration unforgettable.

    We had an absolute blast with Split Second Sound (DJ Rise) and the live band experience! Everyone has told us how they’ve never been to other weddings with so many people dancing and keeping everyone entertained the entire night. I could not have imagined a more perfect wedding reception, the team truly nailed the mood we were going for. I am so thankful we chose the live band experience because it made the night perfect.

  • Thank you so much! You truly kept up the party and exceeded our expectations! The mix for my father daughter dance was also such a huge help, thank you for everything.
    “Split second sound was definitely the way to go. My husband’s one and only concern was the music, and Charlie went above and beyond for our special day and he really made our vibe vision come to life. We had a party full of Floridians from Miami and no one left the dance floor all night! He executed every part of the night perfectly. We had so many guests come up to us saying Charlie was on point!”
    With gratitude,
    Mr & Mrs Villanueva
  • Charlie was absolutely amazing!!!! Thank you for absolutely nailing it at our wedding on 5/20/2023!! You had the whole dance floor filled and played the type of music we requested. Thank you for being able to transition everyone from the rooftop to the downstairs seamlessly without having to stop the music due to the rain. You helped make our wedding so special. Thank you again!!!! We highly recommend Charlie as a DJ/entertainer!

    Sincerely,

    Theresa and Stephen Truesdale

  • Charlie,
    Cannot thank you enough for everything you did for our wedding! You truly went above and beyond! From the beginning you understood our music choices for the wedding. You were also so great in snipping/patching our first dance song and pre mixing the Baraat playlist! For anyone who is looking for a dj that knows what they're doing for a Baraat, look no further than Charlie! He knew how mix Indian songs and even carried a portable speaker with him to ensure the Baraat was a success!!
    Charlie was on point with the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception! He did a great job of controlling the crowd and helping to ensure the schedule was followed to a tee. When I say no one wanted to leave the dance floor I'm not exaggerating. I had one guest come up to me and say "are you going to play any bad songs at this wedding, I can't even find a break to get a drink!" I would like to say my wife and I have impeccable music taste but Charlie did an amazing job at mixing the music, taking requests, and keeping the party going. We couldn't have been any happier with our DJ choice. Thank you so much Charlie and Spilt Second, we'll be sure to recommend you to everyone we know!

    We got married at the end of May 2022, which was right in the heart of the post-COVID wedding surge. Despite how popular of a time it was to hire vendors, Rashida, our day of coordinator, and Charlie, our DJ, made us feel like we had nothing short of their full attention. I'm talking the kind of attention where we consistently got replies to our emails within the hour. Both of them were very professional and friendly to talk to both before and during our wedding. Despite the title of day of coordinator, Rashida even drove all the way out to Shelby from Charlotte the day before our wedding to conduct the rehearsal. Both of them felt very much like they were part of the wedding, giving it their full effort, rather than just providing a service in the background. Charlie really nailed the vibe we were going for in the selection of the music he played, was right on all the cues for the different parts of our wedding, and did a great job on the microphone to announce said parts (e.g. speeches, first dance, etc.). He really became the life of the event and made sure we got the dance party we were looking for. Honestly, Rashida's warmth and enthusiasm made her feel as much a guest as she was the conductor of our wedding. Everything we asked for was received with a "No problem, I've got you!" and executed with professionalism. This review wouldn't be complete without a shout out to the photo booth attendant too. So many of our guests mentioned how much fun they had taking silly photos for our guest book. Split Second Sound offered excellent value but at no compromise to the quality in the service they provided. We're extremely grateful for their impact on our wedding and would recommend you use them for your wedding as well.

  • DJ Charlie was fantastic! We had quite an eclectic music collection, and yet he blended everything so seamlessly that it turned out to be amazing! We played traditional Albanian music and English music with perfect alternating frequency, keeping the guests engaged the entire time. On top of that, my sweetheart and I have very different tastes in music... he likes rock, I like EDM & latin, and our first dance was a traditional waltz. We were a bit worried how this would turn out, but if DJ Charlie is your DJ, then it will turn out to be the most memorable night of dancing ever!
  • Ashley McClain
    I would be happy to!  Everyone had a great time!! Charlie was fantastic.  Everyone is still talking about how he kept the party going and how he played selections to include everyone!! I have even had a few folks inquire about the company we used, and I was happy to give them your information.  Thanks again, you guys made it great!!

    My feedback in general would be that Charlie did a great job.  He was set up and ready to go and professional in manner the entire time from beginning to end.  I was nothing but impressed with his ability to know what we wanted to hear during our event but more importantly knowing how to adapt to the crowd as well.  I wouldn't hesitate at all recommending SSS for future events.  Thank you.

    I wanted to let you know we had Charlie & Anthony out here for 2 separate events this weekend. Words cannot describe how incredible they were. Charlie on Friday made everything work in regards to speakers and setting them up where we wanted, he was very helpful and played an amazing mix of music. Anthony today was on point with all the pool games and directed them like a pro, he also narrated them and judged them. He was super helpful and also played a great mix. Our events were successful because of these 2 gentleman and you should be proud to have them as part of your team. They rock!

    We wanted to send over a huge Thank You" to Charlie. Our daughter's party was a tremendous success. The kids LOVED it and had a great time dancing the night away! We received so many compliments about the party. It truly was a great time. The music was perfect, the vibe was great, and the kids danced the entire night (which speaks volumes!). Thank you again and we would be happy to provide a reference at any time!"

    Diego and I were impressed with the set up of the music selection. Charlie was awesome in keeping the crowd going, especially the little kids. We loved how you were working great with other vendors including us. You guys were professionally dress and you made sure that the bride and groom were satisfied throughout the day. You were right on key playing each music during the ceremony. We were happy with different type of genres being play. It was nice of you to go out of your way with bringing the uplights. We were surprised that it did go well with the place considering we were afraid that it might not blend in with the wall. We will highly recommend you to everyone that we know. You guys definitely made our day special. Thank you so much for everything.

    I heard such good things about prom! Kids and chaperons alike said the kids were dancing and having a blast and that Charlie and his assistant did an amazing job running things smoothly and keeping them entertained. They were definitely happy with the music selection and the set up. Thank you for making it so easy for us! Of course, feel free to use WHS or me personally as a future reference. I look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.

    Charlie was awesome to have as part of our wedding day. He met with us the weekend before our wedding to go over last minute details. He was open to what we wanted to do and gave us advice when we weren't sure about something. I don't remember hearing our ceremony music as I was walking down the aisle, but I was told that it started and stopped exactly when it should! He worked with us when we wanted to push our timeline up so we could have more partying time and he kept the party going until the very last second! Thank you so much to Charlie and Split Second Sound for a fantastic experience!

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know what a great job Charlie did last night at our dj/band combo near Greenville.  Weddings are always challenging but also that fine line between a band and dj workin together and Charlie was certainly up to the task.  He was professional, timely, thoughtful and just overall has a great personality for this business. Thanks again, Dina
  • Chris & Andrea O'Brien
    Charlie, you guys did an awesome job. Couple friends actually told me last night it was the best music they've ever heard at a wedding. Both guys were awesome. I would recommend that duo for any wedding/event.

  • Cody & Brittany Sommer
    We were so so impressed with Charlie! He was absolutely amazing! I could not have asked for anything more. He went above and beyond and kept the wedding going smoothly. He was more than just a DJ. So much more. He kept the party going and was amazing on all of my requests for the ceremony on music played and when and where to start the music especially with not rehearsing it. That was one of the most important things to me, the walk down the isle to my choice music and how picky I was to the start and stop. I just can't go on enough on how great Charlie was! In fact, my bridesmaid just got engaged and has Charlie's info they most definitely will be using y'all's company and Charlie as their wedding DJ.

    Living in the NJ/NY area and planning a destination wedding in North Carolina, I was on a mission to find the best DJ Company in North Carolina and needless to say, we did! Joey & Charlie's skills exceeded any New York wedding we ever attended and they both were above and beyond phenomenal! They did a great job working with reception timeline & executing everything smoothly! Carson & I were able to thoroughly enjoy dancing with our friends & family. They set the perfect tone and our guests were always on the dance floor! Joey & Charlie did an awesome job “feeling for the crowd” and the playlist was perfect! Split Second Sound was a huge part of our successful wedding that our guests can’t stop talking about! A HUGE THANKS!

    My husband and I just recently celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary with a vow renewal ceremony. We had the awesome privilege of working with Charlie from SSS. They made the evening flow so smoothly! They are great at what they do! They are professional in their delivery of services but personable enough for you to engage with them and have a great time! I was concerned about the younger crowd at our event being entertained and having a good time. We could hardly get on the dance floor for them! Charlie knew what to play and when to play it. I cannot thank you them enough for helping us capture and celebrate our moment in time. Without a doubt, we will be calling them for future events.

    "Our party was fantastic and DJ Charlie was a big part of its success!  We were very pleased with Charlie from the start- calling a week before to introduce himself, checking in the day before for any special requests, and arriving to our home well before the event to set up. He was professional and courteous and did a great job keeping the music geared towards our teenage group. The music selection was excellent! We would definitely recommend Split Second Sound to our family and friends who are planning an event. Grant's friends are still talking about how great the music was on Saturday- and teenagers can be hard to please :)" Normal 0 false false false EN-US ZH-CN X-NONE /* 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";}
