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  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 �

  • positive review  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!

  • positive review  What can we say?! We knew you were going to be amazing and had pretty high expectations for you, but you exceeded them all. We had the best day of our lives and you guys played a big part in that. Everyone kept saying how much they enjoyed it! Even our parents friends who said they had no idea of the words, but couldn’t help but dance away. We didn’t think it could get any better until you played ‘one last song...one last song’ the acoustic version of don’t look back in anger. That’s a very long winded way of saying thank you to you and the guys. We are so grateful

  • 5 star review  A bit of a belated review (our wedding was last October), but what can we possibly say. You guys blew our minds once again with your set, and your rendition of Party Hard for our first dance was absolutely perfect. Thanks again for being part of our day, and giving all our guests the time of their lives for the evening. If anyone is reading this and still questioning whether to hire these guys, what are you doing?! Just book already!!

  • positive review  Absolutely phenomenal!!! I’m so so so happy we had them - the repertoire was incredible, they really made the wedding. By far the best wedding band we have heard, would definitely recommend them. Their set included everything from Bruce Springsteen and The Killers to Faithless and Backstreet Boys - couldn’t get off the dance floor. Nothing but fabulous feedback from our guests.

  • 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!

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!!
