Mister Kanish: Wedding & Event Entertainment
Mister Kanish are one of the UK's hottest wedding and event entertainment bands. From our base in Hampshire in the south east of the UK we've played 100s of weddings and events all over the world. Our unique style includes Mumford and Sons tinged folk, guitar led 90s dance and UK garage, and modern and classic pop and rock that'll get you and your guests flooding the dance floor from the word go. There is no band as versatile as Mister Kanish - we can cover anything. We have over 75 five star reviews on facebook, 100% positive feedback and nearly 3million youtube plays.
We’ve been playing weddings and events together since 2006 (and were together in our own band before that) and have since then played all over the world including Madrid, Strasbourg, Majorca, and Dublin. We come recommended my wedding photographers, planners, and venues all over the UK so get in touch to find out how we can make your wedding day or event amazing!
One of our folky cover versions helped us be voted #1 Covers Band in the world, by the people of France on a TV show showed watched by one million people.
Check out our two different music styles
Mumford and Sons, Folk & Festival
Rock, Pop, 90s Dance, & Hip Hop
10-piece Wedding and Event Entertainment
As well as our standard 5-piece we can offer line-ups all the way up to 10-piece including brass (trumpet, trombone, sax) and additional vocals perfect for larger weddings or events that need a little something extra. We can perform both our folky and rock and pop styles with these line-ups and are one of the only bands in the world who can do a 10-piece festival band like this. Check out our line-up options here.
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’ve played promotional events, Christmas parties, summer parties, you name it. Previous clients include Microsoft, Holland and Barrett, White Stuff and Merrill Lynch to name just a few. Whether you’re looking for background music to accompany a sophisticated networking event, or all out dance tunes to ensure everyone does something they’ll regret when they get back in the office, you can trust us to deliver. We are the band you’ve been looking for.
We are available to hire for festivals and public events, and also perform at charity events each year if our calendar allows. If you need upbeat Mumford and Sons style covers of modern and classic pop tunes, or a solid rock and pop band that can guarantee to entertain any crowd, we are the band you’ve been looking for.

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!

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

Oh my god....we are so rubbish....its taken us too long to write this review. We are very lucky to call the handsome lead singer of this band a good friend of ours and we couldn't have dreamed of having anyone else play at our wedding...luckily the band he is in is flipping fantastic too! Mr Kanish absolutely made our wedding reception. There was never a point when the dance floor wasn't full to the brim and our guests were blown away...we had loads specifically contact us after to ask for their name to spread the word. I literally cannot recommend this band enough. Guys, you absolutely smashed it and the 'oldies' generation moshing out to 'killing in the name of' is somerhing that we will never forget. HIRE THIS BAND!!! Love Guy and Rach X x

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.

Where do I start? Amazing talented guys who are lovely to work with. Every song you played was an absolute banger and your twists on it made them. The dance floor was packed the moment you started and the requested song at the end of your set was incredible. Can’t thank you guys enough and hope we get to work together again soon!!

Mister Kanish played at our wedding in July and were INCREDIBLE. We could not have asked for a better band. They were so fun and accommodating and kept the energy levels up all night! Multiple people have since told us how much fun they had and how good the band was. They did some really fun renditions of songs and even let a couple of us join in on the singing on stage. If these guys are free for your day, book them now!!! Thanks again Mister Kanish for making our day so fun!
