EVENT PRODUCER, HOST, DRUMMER, AUDIO TECH AND DJ SINCE 2005.
If you asked Chicago native Brent Rolland what his passion is, he’d say: Unity. He loves seeing people coming together, rejoicing, laughing, dancing, in a positive space—and being a part of the action. That’s why Brent chose to be with Fig.
Brent graduated as valedictorian of the International Academy of Design and Technology with a BFA in Multimedia Production and Design in 2005. Since that year, Brent has grown as an artist with Fig: He is an excellent DJ, a highly-skilled audio tech, a powerful and rhythmic drummer/percussionist, and a lively, wonderful host. Clients have called him the "perfect combination of fun and professional” and is well-known and in-demand in the event industry.
Although he is up on the latest pop and top 40 hits, Brent specializes in jazz, Motown, R&B, soul, funk, Latin jazz/bossa nova, deep house, electro-swing, '80s pop/New Wave, electronic, world, and Japanese and Korean pop/rock. Brent believes that listening to his clients, feeling the energy of the crowd and room, and responding to the energy with appropriate music are important in making each party unique and memorable.
When he is not out and about in the world, Brent is a drummer/percussionist for various genres and groups, including Fig's own DJ/drummer combination. He has also been a game show aficionado since birth, and designs, hosts and produces game shows for fandom and corporate conventions locally and nationwide.
Brent is dedicated to ensuring your event is a success from initial contact right down to the last song of your event. With over a decade of hosting and providing the soundtrack for weddings, parties, and special events throughout Chicagoland and nationwide, Brent is always looking forward to the next celebration.
