Mister Kanish are a UK based party and wedding band who play the best songs by all your favourite bands and artists with a sound of our own. We don't want to be compared to your usual run of the mill wedding band and we won't promise to be the 'UK's most sought after wedding band' or 'best party band'. We let our reviews and our videos speak for themselves.

We offer two distinct styles;

The first a pumping electric guitar based indie, rock, and dance sound and the second a Mumford and Sons style sound where we take the best songs from the last 50 years and arrange them in our own folky / festival style. You won't find out arrangements anywhere else. We've built our setlist and our sound over the last 15 years of working together. We are all good mates and have the most fun playing together and we hope it shows.

We also offer additional line-ups including horns, and other vocalists. Browse our site to find out more!

  • 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 🙂

  • 5 star review  We had Mister Kanish play at our festival weekend wedding in August 17 and they were absolutely brilliant. Really good at communicating beforehand and giving us an idea of the sorts of music they played - they also let us choose specific songs we did/didn't want. On the day they were extremely professional and a fantastic band, all of our guests loved them and we've recommended them to others! Thanks again! Steve

  • positive review  Mister Kanish played at our wedding last week. They were booked last minute but were more than we could have hoped for! Amazing tunes sang in a different way from your usual cheesy wedding cover band. We wish we could go back to our wedding as guests and enjoy them all over again. We really cannot recommend them enough! Everyone has talked about them since.. hope we get to see you again one day! 💖

  • positive review  Absolutely brilliant. I half bullied my co-hosts in to picking Mister Kanish and had to be even more persuasive about adding on the horns, but so, so happy we had them. We took the decision to leave the repertoire to them and to mix things up to keep everyone dancing. They completely made the party and we would definitely recommend them. From first enquiry, through two sets, a brilliant encore and efficient packing up, all of the band have been so easy and professional to deal with. Nothing but fabulous feedback from our guests.

  • 5 star review  Hey guys!! Love your selfie vid from our wedding in Wiltshire 😀 Just wanted to let you know that I've had nothing but amazing comments from all the guests. You certainly kept the dance floor full and overflowing right until the end! In fact lots of people told me that they thought you were the best wedding band they'd ever heard and that they could have carried on dancing to your music for hours! We felt the same and were absolutely thrilled to have you as part of our big day. It was fantastic to have so many people dancing including the older generation. Everyone properly let their hair down thanks to your awesome performance. You really made the party! Thank you ever so much.

  • positive review  Highly, highly recommend Mister Kanish. They had the dance floor at our wedding packed and jumping from start to finish. Really versatile, high energy and it was also great to have the acoustic set outside for our ceremony and drinks reception. Nothing but kind words from all our guests and they were a pleasure to deal with as well. Thanks again guys!

  • 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 � Mr & Mrs Ferris, May 2016, The Dairy, Waddesdon Manor

Why book us?

Over 10 Years Of Experience

Mister Kanish formed in 2006 and we have been playing together every year since. We play over 50 weddings or events a year. We know your event is probably going to be a one off, and we want to make it amazing. We are a band who has worked in every situation, and solved every problem possible.

We're a real band

Many bands are made up of groups of musicians, who may not have even met before showing up at your event. Mister Kanish is no collection of hired guns, we are the real deal. We’re just like one of your favourite bands, but we play all of your favourite bands’ music. Mister Kanish can only be in one place at a time - make it your event!

Versatility

We offer Classic Kanish, our folk/vintage setup, featuring double bass, mandolin, violin, banjo and acoustic guitars - as well as Mister Kanish, our regular rock and pop setup. Frequently we perform at events using both setups - these are always the best gigs. To take it to the next level we can add a 3 piece horn section too.

Communication

When you contact Mister Kanish, you’ll be contacting us directly. There is no agent or middle man. Most likely it will be Chris, our bass player, otherwise Ollie or Andy. Check out our individual pages to put a friendly face to a name. We will be on hand to answer your questions, and concerns throughout the wedding, or event planning stages. We're always happy to give advice on how to make your event the best in can be.

Testimonials
Don’t just take our word for it - check out our testimonials page and Facebook reviews all from genuine happy brides, grooms and clients. People don’t say we are a good band, or even a great band - they say we are “THE BEST BAND EVER” (“Best band I’ve ever seen… and I’ve been to Glastonbury” - that’s a direct quote. BOOM.)
Voted Worlds Best Cover Band

A few years ago we played a TV show in France where they were looking for the world's best cover band. We came up against Russians, Germans, Americans, The French, and more and came in top. Over a million people watched and voted. See the video of our final performance here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuT-r_eW4a0 - if you don't recognise our singer Ben, that's because after this video he went on to loose over 17 stone!!
