DJ Ross Beck
"I was raised in a family that loves to dance, and I know what it's like to be the last person on the dance floor keeping the party going. I'm a DJ who will invest time, energy and passion to make your event memorable. I've helped many events succeed by listening to my clients, translating their vision into musical reality and bringing an upbeat attitude to my work."
Erik Fure -
Erik, a Seattle native, started his DJ career in high school; his date had to dance alone at homecoming, but she didn’t mind, because the party was rocking. Erik is experienced in DJing School Dances, Weddings, fundraisers, and notably opened Macklemore in 2008. Erik is a music devotee, a music producer, and a fan of all festivities. He loves to spin hip-hop, disco, funk, and house, but above all else he likes to play whatever gets people on the dance floor and having the time of their lives. Erik graduated from the Orion Academy, and has been training directly under DJ Orion (David) for over a year. He has grown a lot in his short time at Orion Entertainment and we are very excited to see where his career goes.
Sam Tilford - "Tilly"
Sam started with Orion in 2016 as a photo booth technician and now serves as the VP of Orion Photo Booths. He is a graduate of the University of Washington with a strong passion for storytelling, both in film and journalism. He grew up locally in Everett and is a huge sports fan, especially of the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia 76ers (of course when the Super Sonics come back this might change). His experience on film sets as a production coordinator spiked an interest in event planning. Sam loves working with clients to ensure every event is uniquely their own.
