“You made our wedding the best day of our lives:) Icing on the cake of a fantastic day- long celebration and we can't thank you enough.”
— Marce and Rich
“Thank you so so much for playing on Saturday, you really turned what was already a memorable occasion into something very very special. We couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate than having you play for us. You really topped off a fantastic day so thank you and thank you again, you're now forever part of our married lives!”
— Agnes, Amos, Ada and Ernest.
Hyde Family Jam are a dynamic, energetic and entertaining band who exist to play live shows. With folky foot stompers, dance floor fillers, singalong classics, a touch of hard rock and even a Disney cover or two we’d love to help you get every ounce of celebration from your special day. Between us we have over 40 years of experience playing gigs and events large and small. The band performs two or three times a week, every week of the year which means we are always ready to meet the requirements of your day. As the evening flows we pride ourselves on our ability to chop and change our eclectic set lists to suit the vibe and tastes of the crowd in front of us. The party must go on! Whether performing on a stage, in a hall or a barn, or just on the grass outside a teepee we make every event unique and memorable.
Our prices apply for a choice of either four 30 minute sets or two 1 hour sets, with a short break in between each set. Given the high octane nature of our show, we would suggest that the band is suited to an evening performance. But we are certainly able to provide a more relaxed set for drinks receptions or afternoon performances if you would like.
Our Secret Weapon
Our prices also include the services of the fifth band member, Sid McQuilliam, our excellent sound engineer. Sid operates our high quality P.A system throughout our performance, adapting our sound to your specific venue.
The First Dance
For the first dance at your wedding if you would like us to learn and perform your special song we’d love to accompany you.
This service is included in our price.
Is it a DJ?
We can provide pre-recorded music played through our P.A system to keep the atmosphere in between our sets and after we have finished playing. This service is available up until 12 midnight. We can provide a suitable playlist or if you prefer you can provide a playlist for us to use. This also means of course you don't need to pay for a DJ, and there will only be one set of PA equipment in the music area.
This service is also included in our price.
We are a travelling band, and as such we have equipment to cover all eventualities. For example if you would like an acoustic set outside followed by a fully amplified set inside this is something we can arrange. We are as happy under the sky as on a stage!
On the Road
We are often asked how far we travel and the answer is simply - anywhere! We are however York based. If your event is within 25 miles of York city centre then there is no travel fee. If you are more than 25 miles away there is a travel charge of 40 pence per mile. If you need us to travel abroad, please message to arrange.
Our Set Lists are an eclectic mix and there is something for everyone. You can have a look our current material here Songs, Songs, Songs
