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’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.
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 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 folk 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.

Played at my brothers wedding at the west mill in derby last weekend. Absolutely brilliant. Packed dance floor the entire evening. Best wedding band EVER. Get them booked now!!!

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!

There are no words to describe how kind, thoughtful and incredibly talented this group of gentlemen are. From enquiring about booking them, to learning and playing our first dance outside, to rocking the dance floor with everything from Britney to The Killers, Mister Kanish were everything you could wish for from a wedding band, and more! We are eternity grateful! Thank you so very much, from the new Mr & Mrs Taylor-Holt!

Dear Ollie, and all the MK boys! From the bottom of our hearts Sally and I (Merriscourt, Sept 30th, 2017), would like to say an incredible thank you for helping to make our wedding day so special. We'd be lying if we didn't say that we had high expectations - having watched 'all' your videos online! - but you truly blew us away. You guys are good for every five star review and I'm not embarrassed to admit I was even a little star-struck! Parklife and the Calvin Harris songs w... e asked for we're an absolute highlight, but nothing could top the finale of multiple encores finishing with Oasis' 'Don't Look Back In Anger', with all our guests circling us and coming in at the end. Possibly the highlight of the entire evening! To any soon-to-be married couples out there looking for a band, then look no further. The lads were friendly, professional, were easy to deal with, sounded incredible, and had everyone talking about them the following day. We genuinely couldn't have asked for more... Sally and I always said how much we wanted the dance-floor filled all night, it was one of our big hopes for the day, and MK made this happen. We hope you had a good time too and, once again, thanks so much. All the best. Ben and Sally McGrath See more

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 🙂

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.
