As one of the founding partners of Entertainment Warehouse, my career in the events business spans over 3 decades. Over those years I've performed as Master of Ceremonies, DJ, Event Planner, Event Director and/or Design Consultant for hundreds of Banquets, Weddings, Fundraisers, Awards Nights, Promotions and parties, AKA "DJ Daren".
Now, my focus is helping customers plan and produce extraordinary events using our talented staff, unique products and professional services. Additionally, my goal is to continue developing a company that provides career opportunities for people who enjoy working in the field of Special Event Planning and Entertainment!
Personally, I grew up in Spokane, playing and coaching soccer at a high level. I have raised my family here, and currently enjoy playing competitive golf, traveling whenever possible and spending time at the lake in the summertime.
Director of Events
As the Director of Events, you can think of me as the “Air Traffic Controller” for Entertainment Warehouse. You’re most likely to work with me during the beginning stages of the event process, getting your event reserved with us, and formalizing your event details.
I’m currently celebrating my 15th year at Entertainment Warehouse, however have more than 20 years of event planning experience. My natural ability for organization and attention to detail ensures the production of a flawless event that I know you will enjoy while working with me. I love being able to use my innovation and creativity to bring the real “WOW” factor to your event.
I am a 3rd generation Eastern Washington University Eagle and absolutely love that red turf! In my spare time, you’ll find me cheering on and traveling to watch my Eags play, chasing around our very active 6 year old son with my husband, vacationing on a beach somewhere and enjoying the company of my large extended family and friends.
As the Event Coordinator, you will work with me in some capacity, whether that is confirming your final details or being your main day-of contact for your event. I am also typically leading our team onsite at an event with set-up and production, while making sure everything runs smooth and flawless during and after the event.
I started with Entertainment Warehouse in 2013 helping produce large-scale events like Hoopfest. I am proud to have worked my way into a more permanent role and meet so many wonderful people.
I was born and raised in Spokane, and graduated from John R. Rogers High School in 2015. In my spare time, I love being with my family and friends and exploring what the beautiful northwest has to offer.

Hi, I'm Eddie Wood, one of the professional Emcees for Entertainment Warehouse! If you're a motorcycle fan you may have seen me on SWX-TV providing color commentary for local motocross and flat track racing events over the past seven years. I've also appeared in numerous local TV commercials.
As a Gonzaga alumni and Men's Basketball season ticket holder, you can also catch me at the Kennel during basketball season! After graduation from Gonzaga University, I was the Public Relations Director for the Spokane Chiefs and on-ice Host during the late 90's.
Currently, I represent a full line of interventional cardiology products for Medtronic Inc. Additionally, I am serving my fifth year on the Board of Directors for ACCOIN (American Childhood Cancer Organization Inland Northwest) and speak on their behalf to help with fundraising needs.
