Our History

James and Michele started as the only DJ company in Chicago playing hip music wearing tasteful suits and sequencing the night. We started a wave of talent in the event industry here in Chicago and continue to do so with our talented DJs, documentary filmmakers & photographers. Since 1993, fig media's approach to DJ, film and photo for all kinds of events has been fresh, creative, and personalized to the client. Whether it's corporate or social, fig artists will listen first and then deliver excellently great music as well as great moments captured. All under one roof!

The MOD Deal

When you book all three services with us, we call it a "Mod Deal." Why? Because we like to think of it like The Godfather making you an offer you can't refuse." First, it means more people tracking your wedding, so more care and attention. Less things will fall through the cracks, there will be better back-up systems. So you don't have to worry about relying solely on one person to show up and pull off your wedding. Second, more people means better final results. We have a core team talking about their craft, best practices, latest trends. So you get a collective think tank. We pride ourselves on having a vibrant culture around the art of weddings. We enjoy working with each other and have a blast doing it. Third, convenience and ease; more vendors under one roof means less shopping, less vendor negotiation and coordination, and generally more value.



There are two ways to book with us.

1. Artist Booking: You book your deejay directly and lock them in for your date. Each artist has availability and books rates specific to them. When you choose your artist you book their artist fees directly.

2. Resident Booking: Pick your package and we select a deejay that fits you best. Read less

After contacting a couple different DJ services for our wedding, we decided to go with Fig. It was the best choice we could have made.

We got paired with Brent, who made the whole process so much fun. His enthusiasm is incredibly infectious, and he was totally on board with our type of music: mostly a mix of oldies, 80s hits, and some select recent songs.

Brent helped keep things moving smoothly, we had no technical issues of any kind, and he got all our songs played and then some.

Two months after our wedding, people are still raving about the music. Multiple people have told me that they just wanted to sit down, but couldn’t because the music was too good!

For your wedding, I highly recommend Fig for both professionalism and for quality. And don’t forget to ask for Brent: he’s the best!

We worked with Brent Rolland at Fig Media and had an amazing experience. Brent is so kind and friendly to be around. He was always pleasant in his emails, on the phone, and in person. He is very responsive and thorough. Brent really wanted to make sure our wedding went smoothly and that guests were having a good time. We were torn between a few songs for the wedding, and Brent gave us his input and suggestions, which was really helpful. The song we wanted to use for our first dance was 15 minutes long (a live version of a song), and Brent managed to cut it down to 3 minutes seamlessly. Everyone was dancing throughout our entire reception, which is just what we wanted. Brent kept the party going! I would highly recommend Fig Media to anyone looking for a DJ.

Brent R. kept my whole wedding rocking from start to finish! He had such a great attitude and energy and was able to read the crowd really well. Perfect blend of music, and exactly what we wanted. He definitely listened to what we wanted when we first met. We actually just saw him again at a friend's wedding and it was just as amazing. Absolutely reccomend!!!

Our DJ was fantastic at FIG. We had Hafeez and he knew our style after talking to us early and wasn't too talkie on the mic. We really wanted the music to do the work and we were more than pleased with the outcome of the night. I literally danced all night!

We used Fig for our wedding video for our summer 2011 wedding, and what a BIG mistake. The video was terrible quality and the sound was even worse. What was discussed during pre-wedding meetings with the videographer and owner was all ignored. Nothing that was requested ended up being part of the video. It took months to piece together something that resembled the wedding, but at the end it wasn't what we expected from professionals. We only have photos to remember our wedding day. Fig does not even deserve a half star.

We hired Fig Media and Drew Gee as our wedding DJ this May. Drew went beyond our expectations! He and his assistant really did a great job. Everything went perfectly! We were so pleased with all the song selections. He really listened to everything we wanted from singer/songwriter songs during dinner, to music to get everyone dancing during the reception.

Everyone was dancing the entire reception from our little nephews to our 87 year old Grandma. We received so many compliments about the dj and the music! Everyone was saying they had the most fun, they never heard good song after good song before. Even our photographer who has been to many weddings, told us this was the best music she heard. Every song was a hit! We really couldn’t be happier!

I would highly recommend Fig Media and Drew Gee to anyone!

MOTB perspective: Hafeez from Fig Media did a great job! He constructed music lists that reflected my daughter and her fiance's preferences. He had a number of suggestions to keep the reception lively and upbeat. He was low key during the reception and did a great job as MC. The dance floor was hopping all night! This DJ was wonderful and worth every penny!

My wedding music was PERFECT. Hafeez from Fig Media listened to all of my requests when we met, worked out great sets of music for the cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing, and kept the dance floor crowded all night. He was also really helpful during the reception -- coming over to make sure we were ready for father/daugher and mother/son dances, etc. He had everyone dancing -- grandparents to little kids -- and SMILING the whole night. Thank you Hafeez and Fig!!!!!

We were matched with a DJ based on our songlist which was a great idea. We met with him pre-wedding to get to know him and we really hit it off. Our DJ Alvin was low key (as we had requested) and played our songlist perfectly.

We hired Fig Media to be the DJ company for our wedding because we found, in talking over the phone and meeting in person, that they were kind, professional and capable. They also charge a price that felt fair to us. Tim Musho ended up being our DJ. He did a really great job. I had made a DVD with music that we liked and he used mostly those songs to create a super night of dancing fun for us and our guests. Lots of people liked him and he played music that we liked. I?d recommend him, and Fig Media in general.

Fig Media was awesome! They asked for the type of songs were preferred and even stayed true to our "do-not-play" list. They attended vendor meetings and were super flexible through the whole process. We highly recommend their DJ services and everyone commented how great the dancing was at our wedding!

Meghan was the DJ for our after party and anyone who was there can tell you that she had everyone on the dance floor until 3:30am!!! Even the older guests were up partying the night away!! I just couldn't imagine ending my wedding any earlier...it was one night I will never forget!! She was so great to work with and so accommodating throughout the whole process!! People are still talking about our after party!!! Thank You Fig Media!!!

These guys were great! We were looking for a DJ that would not take over the wedding and listen to what we really wanted. They did just that! It was great- they really knew how to read the crowd and exactly what to play.

They were unique, but not snobbish. I highly recommend them!

These people wanted my business and worked to get it. They absolutely conducted themselves completely to the standards I set for my event, and I was happy they were there. They played the songs I selected and also used their best judgement to keep the party lively. Call Erik and get them set up to work on your event!

My husband and I have very eclectic music tastes, so Fig was willing to work with us and play some of our own music. It was great to hear some of our own funky music at the reception as well as some standards. They stood by their word and didn't play songs that were on our 'do not play' list but kept the guests dancing.

We also got many complements on the music during dinner as they played great 'old standards' which my grandmother loved. We have many terrific memories from our wedding thanks to Fig.
