Hyde Band is a not-for-profit organisation and charity. All playing members pay an annual subscription to belong to the band and any funds raised from gigs are added to the band's bank account to cover the day-to-day running costs. For example, rent for the rehearsal room, purchase and maintenance of instruments, new music, costs associated with transferring equipment to and from rehearsal venues and entrance fees to contests to name just a few. Players and band Directors never receive payment for attending gigs or supplying a service to the band.

If you own or represent a business and would like some publicity, or a regular booking then we can discuss potential sponsorship arrangements. If you are an individual then you can "Become a Friend of Hyde Band", "Sponsor a Player" and/or make a donation. Each of these options are discussed in more depth below.
