Katie "KD Queen" Beck
DJ/Emcee/Host/Warm-Up/Dancer

"I AM GROOT..."

I would say it all started with a mic. It’s hard to say what was more inspiring, Britney Spears in a head mic killing all her dance moves in 2000 or Celine Dion belting every night with her choreographed mic work, but obviously i needed to feel the same power. In 2015 I took my performances out from in front of a mirror and around to diverse audiences; Wowing tourists, vacationers, locals and all walks of life in Central Florida. Why do you ask, because what vegetable parties the hardest? TURNIP!

Whether it's behind the turntables, or pirouetting in ballet tights, he has mastered it all, or at least attempted. His ability to entertain the crowd with his seemingly endless energy, and talk in various voices and accents, is often described as everything from annoying to endearing. When not entertaining, he enjoys juggling, snorkeling, kayaking... heck anything that's outdoors.

Landon Perkins

DJ/Emcee/Host/Musician(Guitar & Bass)

"I Wanna Rock-and-Roll All Night, and Party Every Day..."

Serious: 

Music has always been a huge love of my life. An entertainer at heart, with background as a musician and vocalist, I love to bring a party wherever I go. 

Not so serious:

One day I decided to give it a try. I didn’t know what to expect. I’d never done it before. But I had a feeling it would be good. I was a little nervous, and didn’t know what my peers would think. It was definitely outside of my comfort zone. But I finally got up the nerve to give it a go, and realized that I really do like sour cream on scrambled eggs. 

Oh, and I’m a professional musician and DJ too.

Kira Chamberlain

DJ/Emcee/Host/Dancer

 

Kira is Elite Beats’ premier female DJ.  She has mastered being a female, but always working on her DJ skills.  The crowds not only love her music choices, but also her footwear. Kira has been amazing audiences since the age of three. Her debut was an incredible dance to “Me and My Teddy Bear”.  She has been addicted to dancing, music and attention ever since. Her fourth-grade students would agree!
You are welcome to follow her on social media where you can see her showing off her bling, which consists of running medals. Running 10+ marathons is just an excuse to enjoy more pizza and beer. She loves spending time with her husband, and feline.

When Cousin Nate isn't hopping around and making numerous puns you can find him playing sports, watching football or at your local movie theater watching EVERYTHING. After all you can't make endless movie quotes if you don't see all of the movies!

Young Hip Male

Amanda Pearson

Photographer/Videographer/Social Media

"I have a bad feeling about this..."

Amanda is not a DJ, and she's not a host... In fact she would be content sitting quietly by herself in a dark room editing video and photographs. This is what makes her perfect for her role, the documentarian of Elite Beats.

Don't think that doesn't make her one of the crew, she can still debate the necessity of Porgs, tell you who else can yield Thor's hammer, all while managing her f-stops and shutter speeds.

What we do

"want to know more..."

Event Storytelling

"Once Upon a Time..."

Weddings, Corporate Events, Kids Parties, you'd think they didn't have anything in common, but you'd be wrong.

We have always been storytellers, and as such have always enjoyed hearing stories. So we believe that by turning your event into a story, we can better entertain and amaze your audience. By breaking it down into it's core storytelling elements, we take our knowledge and years of experience to make sure everyone is entertained from the Beginning, to the Middle and all the way to the End.

Pop Culture Savants

"What a bunch of nerds..."

We are the leaders in Pop Culture event entertainment, and we're not afraid to say it. In fact we believe that we have created a niche market where no one knew there was a market to begin with. How did we do it? It probably started in the AV Club room, the Drama Club, or in the corner of our High School Cafeteria. We love Pop Culture, and we know our stuff. Whether its Trek, Rings, Wars, or Smith... we know it all. Our mission is to incorporate this wealth of useless/useful knowledge and our love of entertaining to keep you on the edge of your seats... or at least off your phone.

The Team Mentality

"Dogs and Cats living together... Mass Hysteria..."

We believe that things are better in two's and the combination of a DJ and Emcee is like peas and carrots, peanut butter and jelly, and salsa and queso. In fact our motto is the more the merrier, because it's like an instant party. Out teams have spent years developing a bond not unlike that of siblings, it can be fun and unpredictable at the same time. It gives the DJ the ability to focus on the music, and the emcee the time to really develop a bond with their audience. 

The Right Tool For the job

"Why Not Do It With Some Style..."

At Elite Beats, we take pride in the exceptional and personalized service we offer to all of our clients. Above all, our flexibility allows us to take on a large variety of projects, and this is how we’ve turned into a respected, well-established, and highly connected Entertainment Company. However, we also understand the not every entertainer is the right fit for the right event. No one entertainer is perfect for every role, unless you're Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson. That is why our roster includes a little bit of everything. We cover various ethnicity's, cultures, languages, fandom, musical taste and shoe size. We will always try our best to fit your event with the correct performer.
