DJ TORI VEE (Company VP)

 

Recognized as the Best DJ in Ithaca, NY, in 2021 and receiving numerous awards, including victories in eclectic DJ contests at the Mobile Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, DJ Tori Vee's journey began humbly as a dedicated musician. Throughout her career, she has had the privilege of gracing stages alongside esteemed talents such as X Ambassadors, Sofi Tukker, Talib Kweli, Matt & Kim, and more, solidifying her reputation as a respected figure in the industry. Her wordplay, toneplays, and live mashups incorporate much of her musicality!

As an MC, Tori exudes confidence while enveloping the room in a warm embrace, setting the stage for an unforgettable celebration. With her curated soundtrack, she invites guests to let loose, reliving the carefree joy of their youth and creating moments that echo laughter and camaraderie - the cultivation of those long-lasting memories. You can see that at her events and when she's on the stage at various conferences helping to educate her fellow DJ community.

When she's not creating them (and sometimes even when she is), you can find Tori Vee on any dance floor, seamlessly blending in as she shares each moment with whoever is on the dancefloor in front of or next to her - and most DEFINITELY giving out her world-famous hugs, too!
