  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$900 - $3000 per event
Our group is capable of playing a wide variety of sounds, everything from Bluegrass, Acoustic music, Popular favorites and Jazzy Selections. We match musical selections to your personal tastes for your event.

Banjo/Guitar/Bass/Mandolin or Fiddle
Do you want to impart an Appalachian-based Feel to your event yet remain elegant and upscale? With this configuration you'll get bluegrass standards such as Foggy Mountain Breakdown, the Old Home Place to more modern songs like Bela Fleck's "Big Country" and "Wagon Wheel." In addition, our group can do popular artists like Beatles, Otis Redding, Merle Haggard, etc.

In addition, I also play many weddings as a solo acoustic guitarist and have played a number of pop and classic love songs for brides as they walk down the aisle so if you need a band or just a couple of musicians I can help you. I enjoy working with others to determine the best configuration and material to fit their needs.

-Sound System provided if needed.

Our wedding reception will give us memories to cherish and talk about for a lifetime. It was a huge success largely because of the Jody Hughes Band. I honestly couldn't ask for a group of guys more talented, professional, accomodating, and just simply so enjoyable to be around and listen to. Jody and his band went above and beyond to set the mood for a great time had by all. I would recommend them to anyone not only looking for an accomplished bluegrass band, but as skilled musicians with a true talent and passion for their craft. Thank you again Jody!

Jody and his band are absolute pros! They tailored their performance to perfectly fit our venue. We made a special request for our first song and the guys owned it! It was an incredible night made possible by these guys. We could not have asked for a better performance and all of our guests (of all ages and backgrounds) really loved it.

Our guests, my husband, and I agree that the Jody Hughes Band is a talented group of musicians who play well together. Their renditions of instrumental Americana tunes are especially wonderful. I wish I had taken more time to just focus on their music on the wedding day but regardless, they enhanced the atmosphere and entertained our guests. In addition, the Jody Hughes band is accommodating, flexible, and affordable. They learned songs to that we requested for the ceremony and special dances and made changes to set-ups and schedules to allow us to have our ceremony outdoors in-between rain showers without hesitation or complaint.
