We are a band who play the best songs by all your favourite bands and artists with a sound of our own. For stripped down acoustic covers, folky Mumford and Sons style knees ups, funked up classics, hip hop beatdowns to full out rock riffage… there is no band as versatile as Mister Kanish. We have over 75 five star reviews on facebook, 100% positive feedback and nearly 3million youtube plays.

We’ve been playing together as Mister Kanish since 2006. Mister Kanish can only be in one place at any one time, because we come as a unit. There is only one Mister Kanish out there, and we are the band you’re looking for.

We were also voted #1 Covers Band in the world, by the people of France on a TV show showed watched by one million people.

Mister Kanish are one of the UK's most popular wedding bands. Whether you’re getting married in a yurt in a field or at a swanky hotel, we are the band you’re looking for. As well as rocking the party we can also offer a wealth of awesome extras such as ceremony music, wandering drinks reception sets, or even throw in a trio of awesome horn players. We cover everything so you don't have to think about DJ's, lights or Public Liability Insurance.

We are the band you’ve been looking for.

  • 5 star review  Mister Kanish played at our wedding in 2015 and they were INCREDIBLE. People still comment on how great they were. The dancefloor was full all night and they created such a brilliant atmosphere. They are also top guys, good fun and super easy to deal with during the booking process.

  • 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  I just wanted to drop you and the rest of the band a small note to say a very big and a very grateful thank you for your wonderful performance on Saturday night. We had so many guests come up to us and say how fantastic the music was and how brilliant you were. I'm thrilled to pieces that you were free on my dad's birthday and that you put on such a good show.We absolutely loved having you play and everyone's performance was of such a high quality (which is nothing less than we expected) but you all looked like you were having so much fun too which makes a huge difference. The songs were brilliant and there were quite a few favourites of my own in the mix which was a bonus.To anyone considering hiring this band for your special event I would say absolutely go for it; you won't regret it!

  • 5 star review  Chris, Ollie and all of Mister Kanish...not forgetting the horns! An amazing set at Cafe de Paris in Soho for our company Christmas Party. No-one left the dance floor and they didn’t want you to finish! Amazing for a corporate event.

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!!
