Stop looking for a dj service and book creative events now!
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND JUST BOOK CREATIVE EVENTS NOW!!! Melissa (owner) is the BEST around!Sent on 06/20/2021
Pricing/Services: Having a great DJ was the one thing I cared about during the whole wedding planning process, so I did a LOT OF RESEARCH. Melissa's prices are the best that we found anywhere and we got everything we wanted, like a photo booth, uplighting, and DJ services, PLUS a free professional dance lesson from Melissa, for our whole event included in our upfront cost. We talked to other places where the cost to add uplighting was more money than what we paid for ALL of the services we received from Creative Events. My husband and I made some several last-minute changes to our song selections and we also wanted to incorporate ways to honor our loved ones who couldn't be there...Melissa was extremely helpful and patient through it all and we could not have done it without her! If you are having any hesitation about booking Melissa and Creative Events because their prices are so much cheaper than everyone else, you don't need to worry...As their website states, they are in this industry because it's their passion, not because they want to get rich quick by hiking their prices like nearly every vendor.
Day of Wedding: I CANNOT express how blown away I was by Melissa's work for our wedding this past weekend!! I can honestly say that Melissa saved our reception after our photographer and venue coordinator had some miscommunication with timing of cocktail hour and dinner...Melissa went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure the issue was fixed and that my husband and I didn't have to stress about a thing....we truly can't thank her enough!!! We had guests ranging from 2 years through 70 years old and Melissa played a mix that kept everyone happy and moving the whole night. There were people dancing who we've never been able to get on the dance floor before!
Of everyone we worked with throughout our entire wedding planning process, she was hands-down the most responsive, helpful, and organized vendor. Her passion for her work shines through, and she is both professional and personable... BOOK HER NOW!!!

Melissa and Michael are awesome! Melissa is so easy to deal with- our wedding party was a little crazy, Melissa kept my entire wedding party organized for our grand entrance. More importantly she kept people on the dance floor THE ENTIRE NIGHT! I couldn't be happier with my decision to hire them!Sent on 07/04/2018

Team of Music in Motion Presents Creative Events
Melissa Mazanec Thomas
Melissa is the founder of Creative Events and has worked as full-time Office Director and DJ for eleven years. She also teaches Zumba and Musical Theater through their sister company, Creative Cardio/Music in Motion. Prior to creating the business, she worked in various inefficient offices, an experience which taught her the significance of running a flawless business. Her upbeat personality and interactive entertainment skills have also helped the company achieve its well-known reputation in the community. Together with her husband, Michael T. Thomas, and their family friend, Marty Defilippis, who complement Melissa's talents, Creative Events has everything it needs to succeed! Melissa claims her business is like the little pig who built his house out of bricks instead of straw or twigs. "Our family business is not a get-rich-quick scheme; we're not in this to make millions of dollars. The company is like our child, and we know what we need to survive without ripping off our clients" (Melissa Mazanec Thomas).
Michael T. Thomas, co-owner of Creative Events, was the inspiration for Creative Events and its sister company, Creative Cardio/Music in Motion back in 2010. His phenomenal musical talents and unique abilitiy to draw or build anything using the naked eye (including the company's Photo Booths) has brought this family-owned business to a level of its own over the past eleven years. He is a self-made DJ and Photographer, who also teaches Zumba. Michael is the perfect complement to his partner and wife, Melissa. Together the couple share a flair for fun and music, and whatever skill one doesn't possess, the other does. Michael has a one-of-a-kind personality, which makes him an excellent emcee, and his dancing can't be beat!
Billing and Accounts Receivable
Marty helped design the office for Creative Events and its sister company, Creative Cardio/Music in Motion back in 2010. His extensive office experience and knowledge of software along with his creative touch have been a great asset to both the company owners and the clients. Although his main function is to collect the money, Marty has such a friendly and patient personality that the client will enjoy working with Creative Events from the day the contract is signed. Marty has been a family friend of Michael and Melissa Thomas for over two decades. The staff is comprised of only relatives and family friends so that emotional attachment remains the driving incentive for success.
