Hot Night Events was founded in 2013 by Mary De Bellis after the passing of “Disco Night Events” founder Mark Tremper. Our team has continued Mark’s legacy and pays tribute to him at every event. Thanks to the thousands of supporters that follow us, Hot Night Events has been renowned as the "Hottest Dance Party" in New Jersey.
Mary De Bellis, President
Mary has a passion for people, music, dancing, and entertaining. Her leadership skills, experience, strong work ethic, tenacity, diligence and dedication make Mary a natural at event management and promotions.
Long before Hot Night Events, Mary excelled in the corporate world at a young age. She rapidly advanced to become the Director of Investment Operations and Reporting at a major insurance company and was responsible for the processing of billions of dollars in assets and a staff of 35 employees. Mary later launched a career as an independent insurance broker (known as "The Insurance Lady") and is still actively managing her insurance business. She hosted large corporate events and held amazing house parties remembered fondly by many.
Mary comes from a family of musicians and entertainers. Her uncle founded the legendary De Bellis School of Performing Arts that was located in Newark for 55 years. She was once a bass player in a rock band. The band is memorialized on a plaque in NYC with bands such as the Beastie Boys as founders of “hard core” music. Mary also co-hosted a cable variety show filmed at local nightclubs in the 1980's. She briefly appeared in the Iggy Pop "Wild One" video and has done runway modeling at New York Fashion Week and other fashion shows representing Robert Greco Couture.
Mary is first and foremost a devoted mother of two amazing adult children, has three adopted pets, is a proud vegan, a fitness enthusiast, and helps rescue animals. She adds a personal touch to each event and makes people feel comfortable and welcome. You can trust Mary and the Hot Night Events team to get the job done and get it done right!
