Festival Band For Hire

With our two distinct styles, our set is well suited to music festivals. We have played several, including Oktoberfest 2017 where we played to over 24,000 beer fans over the course of 2 weekends. We play the folk of Mumford and Sons, mixed with the 90s pop, dance and r'n'b sounds of Montell Jordan, Faithless, and Sisqo, alongside rocking tunes by bands like Oasis, Rage Against The Machines, and The Killers. We're guaranteed to get any crowd on their feet and screaming for more. For the festival stage that requires more we can also add a trio of amazing horn players to the line-up adding some extra brass awesome-ness giving our set elements of ska and Rio style fiesta.

If you require a band of pros who know how to get a crowd going then look no further. Check out some of our live footage below.

  • 5 star review  Mister Kanish were playing at a wedding where I was doing the photography last weekend and can honestly say they were brilliant. They played such a wide range of songs from different decades. The style, vocals and instruments were all fantastic! Great bunch of guys too and really engaged with the guests, highly recommended πŸ™‚

  • 5 star review  Played at our wedding in 2015. Couldn't recommend these guys enough to anyone that is looking for a band for a special event. Really easy and professional to deal with when booking and on the night they were amazing. Dance floor was full all night and they created a great atmosphere...that good all our guests missed the transport home we had arranged as they just wanted to stay and dance!

  • 5 star review  A massive thank you for Saturday. It was the best day and you guys played a very big part. Booking you was our first bit of Wedmin and we have been excited to see you play ever since - you did not disappoint.Everyone was raving about you on the night and have kept messaging us since to say you were the best band they have heard at a wedding. Your garage mash up was a particularly highlight ("I didn't expect to hear so solid crew in Wiltshire - amazing") and seeing the dance floor in full flow was just what we wanted. The remixes and mash ups all went down a storm and lots of our parents friends also commented on how well you kept all generations happy.Tim even heard a couple of the bridesmaid discussing whether they were too old to become Mister Kanish groupies. A seal of approval if every there was one.We are now trying to work out an excuse to have another party and have you play again!

  • 5 star review  These guys played at our wedding on 29th May 2016 and honestly from our first dance right to the end they were beyond brilliant and amazing. Andy & I were chuffed to bits and all of our friends and family loved them too. From the acoustic vintage style through to the most AMAZING RnB tunes. Thanks guys, you were the stars of the show οΏ½ Mr & Mrs Ferris, May 2016, The Dairy, Waddesdon Manor

  • 5 star review  Played our wedding last week at Manor by the Lake and absolutely nailed it! Super talented group of guys, incredibly professional to deal with, and kept everyone on the dancefloor all night from my wife's parents, our uni mates and colleagues, to our little cousins. Top work! Can not recommend these guys enough and had so many fantastic reviews from our guests. You really made our night!

  • 5 star review  Mister Kanish played at our wedding in July 2014 and our friends still talk about it! They did both their classic/vintage style and electric rocky style stuff and both were awesome! If we did it all again booking this band would be top of my 'to do' list!

  • 5 star review  Honestly we couldn't recommend Mister Kanish enough, they played at our wedding in September 2016 and kept the dance floor full from start to finish - they even gave in to the demands of an encore from our guests! So professional to deal with ahead of the wedding, and very accommodating to the needs of our venue (even bringing electric drums). Learnt our first dance amazingly well and were lovely when we changed our mind about the song a few weeks before the wedding. We only wish we had another occasion to book them for!! Thanks guys πŸ™‚

Non-Stop Party Set

We can play for a full 90mins with our non-stop party set made up of medleys, stand alone tunes, and mashups, moving between styles as we go. The setlist is ideal for a festival crowd and encompasses, modern folk, 90s dance and hip hop, classic sing-along anthems, and chart hits that everyone will know and love.

Mix of Two Styles

We offer both a folk inspired Mumford and sons style with violin, mandolin, acoustic guitars and double bass, and also an electrified rock style both perfect on their own or equally awesome when mixed. Our repertoire contains a mix of classics and contemporary tunes. The sound is perfect for a festival as it's like having a main support and headliner all in one.

Horn section
Everyone loves brass. Our awesome horn section, made up of trumpet, trombone, and sax, can be added to Mister Kanish for any festival booking. This gives our usual setlist a hint of Rio Carnival blended with a ska skankathon all rolled into one. Highly recommended for bigger stages!
