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.

  • 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

  • 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!

  • 5 star review  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 🙂

  • 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.

  • 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!!
