What are we all about?

What We're All About...

The perfect band for the perfect occasion!


Night To Remember is an award-winning, 5-star-rated, customizable wedding band located in Indiana. This is not just a bar band that does weddings on the side. This is a band that was formed specifically for the wedding reception market! Since 2014 this band of all-star players has amazed and delighted thousands in and around Indiana and beyond.


Unlike some others, what you see and hear with Night To Remember is what you get! We are a small group of musicians from Indiana. We are not a multi-state agency that contracts local musicians and assembles a band for your event. We rehearse and play together as a single group! Rehearsing together = better chemistry = tighter band = better show!


Night To Remember is also no newcomer to the wedding reception scene. We bring decades of experience to the table. From the first point of contact, you will find prompt, courteous, and professional interaction; the hallmark of your experience with Night To Remember. From quoting your wedding package, to your free on-site consultation, to the amazing performance of the band at your reception, you'll find that the quality and professionalism of this group is second-to-none!


Would you like a solo acoustic performer? We can do that! Would you like a 13-piece party band with a horn section, background singers, and alternate percussion? We can do that too! And, yes, we can do everything in between.


You tell us what your vision is for your live entertainment, and we can make it happen! We can also provide live music for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and/ or dinner hour. Again, we customize our services to fit your needs.


In the beginning...

Founded in 2014, Night To Remember (NTR) was started by full-time musician, Jon Durnell. Jon has made a career from playing, writing, and recording music since 2010. As a singer/songwriter, he has won multiple awards. As his bands were playing clubs and private parties around Indiana, they began getting more requests to play weddings. Jon and his bandmates also LOVED the unique experience of playing weddings, corporate events, and private parties. From that passion, Night To Remember was born! 


Jon and the musicians he shares the stage with have always been passionate about music and sharing the live music experience with others.


At NTR Entertainment, we are all about bringing a fun, professional, and high-energy musical experience to your wedding reception or event! We are live music party pros!

Hiring a musical act should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. We do everything possible to make your interaction with us as pleasurable and as seamless as possible, from your first contact with us all the way through to the band's last song at your event. Your satisfaction is our business!

Our Creative Director...

Meet Tammy.

She's the person behind the scenes! With a background in Fine Art & Design, she handles web design, marketing, and media for NTR. Basically, all things Creative...ask Tammy:) 

Based on availability, Tammy also is our day-of wedding/event band coordinator who works directly with anyone involved in the event, including the bride & groom, family, wedding planners/coordinators, and venues. 

Sometimes events that are planned to the slightest detail can have last-minute changes. When that happens, the last thing you want is someone running frantically to the stage waving their hands in the air trying to get the band’s attention.

With Night To Remember, there’s no need to look unprofessional in front of your guests. Groomsman running late for a toast? Aunt Pearl wants to speak a few words? Just talk to Tammy, and she’ll communicate directly with the band.

The result? The band will make seamless adjustments and your evening will continue to flow perfectly!
