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  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  I can not recommend this band highly enough! The most professional fun group of guys you will ever meet! Nothing was too much trouble for them to insure George and Bridget had the best wedding party that they had hoped for. Words can not convey how I feel, Thank you so much �

  • 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  Having seen Mister Kanish perform at our friends wedding last summer they were the very first thing we booked when we became engaged. The venue, caterers, photographers etc were all secondary to making sure we had booked the band, they really are that good! At our wedding they were once again exceptional. They had the whole place jumping from the first set to the last, the young and old alike. We received so many compliments regarding the band on the night and in the days that followed. Many saying that they were the best band they’d ever seen! We couldn’t have been happier with their attitude, professionalism and performance. We are really hoping that some of our friends book Mister Kanish for their weddings so that we can see them again. If you are looking for a wedding band who will round off your special day perfectly, look no further. You will not be disappointed!

  • 5 star review  Where to start! The friendliest group of guys you could ever wish to meet and so incredibly professional during the run up to our wedding and, of course, on the day itself. They're very quick to respond to any questions beforehand (which is very reassuring for a nervous bride!) and are very accommodating when it comes to requests. They really are the best band out there and I would encourage anyone thinking of hiring Mister Kanish to just do it, you will not regret it!

  • positive review  Having seen you guys play at a friend's wedding, you were our very first booking for our own wedding more than a year ago and I am SO pleased you could make it. We are really pleased we chose to have the 8 piece with horns, it sounded awesome. You are all so incredibly talented and the diverse range of songs covered made it so much fun!! We have had nothing but positive comments from our guests and as your selfie video demonstrates you really got the crowd on to the dancefloor!! I am really hoping that we get to see you again soon, because you are just SO darn good! Thanks again xx

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.

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!!
