Yea, solely based on the legal advice I can present you, (I am not a lawyer) I’m fairly sure you can get sued using a name that consists of Sony and Music, as there is already a Sony Music label and trademark and etc. be careful… I’m sure its got tons of legal protections that go beyond the average run of the mill company, should think about changing the site name asap it’s fairly misleading to the average joe, and the fact that you have advertisements running on the page will lead them to believe you were intending to make money using the sony name.

Based on my average joe knowledge of the legal system, take down the site and or change the name asap.
