I just wanted to drop you and the rest of the band a small note to say a very big and a very grateful thank you for your wonderful performance on Saturday night. We had so many guests come up to us and say how fantastic the music was and how brilliant you were. I'm thrilled to pieces that you were free on my dad's birthday and that you put on such a good show. We absolutely loved having you play and everyone's performance was of such a high quality (which is nothing less than we expected) but you all looked like you were having so much fun too which makes a huge difference. The songs were brilliant and there were quite a few favourites of my own in the mix which was a bonus. To anyone considering hiring this band for your special event I would say absolutely go for it; you won't regret it!

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!

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

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.

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!!

We were lucky to have Mister Kanish at my daughter’s recent wedding party. We had high hopes for them as what we had seen online looked great and they certainly didn’t disappoint. A great band, great vocals and instrumentalists, fabulous covers. Love them and hope to see them again someday.

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 �

We had Mister Kanish play at our wedding in July last year, and what can I say...THE best wedding band EVER!!!! ? We knew these guys would be good,but they were even better than we expected! Some of our best memories of our wedding were from the evening entertainment from Mister Kanish! They can do anything, from pop, rock and indie, to hip hop and R&B! They did an incredible 90s dance medley which went down a treat and even learnt our cheesy NSYNC number to do as our first dance song (I’m pretty certain this will be a first for them...and probably a last ? but they learnt it anyway and did an amazing job!!!). Plus, you know when your band do a rendition of the Thong Song, you’ve picked the best! ? We loved the fact they could play electric or acoustic (we loved having the violin included in our first dance!!!). They put such a good twist on their songs which I believe makes them truly unique. Ben is an awesome singer and they’re all super talented making them sound A-MAZ-ING!!! Not only that, but my husband was over the moon that we were able to have a trance set arranged for the end of the night...a bit different, but was a massive hit with him and the best man! Booking was straight forward and Chris was so helpful with any questions we had and was really quick to respond! We honestly couldn’t have asked for a nicer group of guys to play at our wedding and would highly recommend them to anyone! Our guests were blown away by how good they were and had nothing but good things to say about them! So if you’re still undecided, rest assured you won’t be disappointed if you book Mister Kanish, and you might just regret it if you don’t!!! Love Nicole and Chris! ✨???? xxx
