I’ve been clearing out a few CDs from my car and found a copy of York band Hyde Family Jam‘s 2018 album, It’s Alive!!
If you’ve not been to York (one of my favourite cities) then the trip to try and catch Hyde Family Jam busking is worth the visit alone.
You won’t find a band with as much energy and passion with such an eclectic repertoire of songs as these guys.
Take It’s Alive for example – there are covers of Rihanna, Britney Spears, Dolly Parton, The Crickets, Vance Joy, Blink-182 and The Undertones!
The one time I caught them live was in 2018 and we saw them perform Havana which was amazing. I bought the album hoping it would be there but it’s not on.
I want to try to track down all of their albums on CD as that’s the only way to buy the songs at the moment.
You can check out a few of their performances on YouTube!
