Split Second Sound
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 Diane, and together they owned a 24 track digital recording and rehearsal studio called Split Second Studios and mobile sound company.
Vinny and Diane moved to Charlotte in 1999 and quickly established their company as the premier DJ company in the area writing a record breaking 1032 events in 2016 (465 being weddings) . Starting with 3 DJs on staff entertaining 40 events in 2002, Split now employs over 45 of the most talented MC/DJ Entertainers in the business.
Consistency is key to Split’s growth. Split 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.” Split offers multiple DJs and packages to pick from and will even help match you with your perfect entertainer using our extensive Know Your Customer Form.
90% of Split Second Sounds 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, cheerleader tryouts, Play 60 events, pep rallies, and so much more.
For 5 years, Diane of SSS had been a part of the Friday morning dance party on the Fox/CW’s morning “Rising” TV Show. Vinny and SSS have 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) hosted by Split’s very own Diane Esposito. The show provided tips and trends to brides-to-be but also shows off some of the amazing weddings Split has played a part of. Diane states, “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 Dj’s are a part of a family team as several exclusive DJ’s have been with SSS for over 15 years. “No egos, just fun parties because if we don’t have fun, they’re not having fun,” say Vinny. “It’s 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!”
