ABOUT

A native to the south side of Chicago, IL, Kelly Brown has been a music aficionado for decades. At the Age of 16, Kelly worked as a sales associate for Coconuts music store for 5 years. In the fall of 2004, Kelly attended Jackson State University (JSU) in Mississippi where she first began her career as a DJ. In August 2007, Kelly experienced her first on campus gig that placed her on the map. This gig opened up the doors for Kelly, as she experienced non-stop campus and club gigs for the last two years of her college experience.

Shortly after this outpour of DJ business, in the fall of 2008, Kelly experienced her first taste of the music industry as a Marketing Intern for Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson’s record label “G-Unit Records”. While working with G-Unit, Kelly was responsible for grassroots marketing, event planning, and assisting the creative services and new media team for 50 Cent’s website. 

In 2009, Kelly graduated with a bachelor’s of business administration (Economics) from JSU. She then relocated to Washington D.C. for a job opportunity. It was here Kelly built her experience and credibility in the DJ industry, spinning at private, corporate and wedding events throughout the Virginia, NYC and D.C. areas. Kelly also has DJ experience in Dallas, TX, San Jose, CA, and Chicago, IL.

In addition to Kelly’s extensive background in deejaying, Kelly enrolled as a student at the famous Scratch DJ Academy to complete DJ coursework in 2011 and 2015. Scratch DJ Academy is the world’s leading DJ and music production learning center co-developed by Jam Master Jay of Run DMC. 

When asked how would you describe your entertainment/DJ style to an audience that has never seen or heard you perform and what can they expect, Kelly responded: “My DJ style is diverse and energetic! When I’m in the mix, I feed off the energy of my crowd. As an open format DJ, I love different genres of music. I enjoy surprising my listeners with a “throwback” that they may have not heard in a while and seeing their reactions is priceless. Music is my passion and I’m thankful for the opportunity to share that passion with others through the art of deejaying.”


PRAISE

We had Kelly Brown as the DJ for our wedding and she kept the dance floor crowded. Everyone at Fig was professional and I would recommend their services for any type of event. Thanks Kelly, James and Brent!

(Written to Fig and Kelly) Hi Kelly: Just wanted to shoot you a quick email before we head out on our honeymoon tomorrow and say THANK YOU so much for helping to make our dream wedding come true! All of our guests have been RAVING about how great our DJ was. :) I have been to plenty weddings in my lifetime and never seen the dance floor so packed the entire night. You helped create such an amazing energy in the room and Evan and I had the absolute best time of our lives! We are so grateful to have been in such good hands.

(Written on Yelp) We had Kelly Brown DJ our wedding in September and she was AMAZING. My husband and I did our research before selecting Fig, and we could not have made a better decision. Kelly took a few song recommendations and was able to craft an evening that perfectly fit our musical taste and kept ALL of guests on the dance floor ALL night. Honestly people hardly took a break to sit down, everyone was having the time of their lives thanks to the incredible energy Kelly created within the ballroom. I have never seen a wedding dance floor so packed! She was also very professional to work with throughout the whole planning process. I would 100% recommend figdeejay and Kelly Brown.
