Festival Band For Hire

With our two distinct styles, our set is well suited to music festivals. We have played several, including Oktoberfest 2017 where we played to over 24,000 beer fans over the course of 2 weekends. We play the folk of Mumford and Sons, mixed with the 90s pop, dance and r'n'b sounds of Montell Jordan, Faithless, and Sisqo, alongside rocking tunes by bands like Oasis, Rage Against The Machines, and The Killers. We're guaranteed to get any crowd on their feet and screaming for more. For the festival stage that requires more we can also add a trio of amazing horn players to the line-up adding some extra brass awesome-ness giving our set elements of ska and Rio style fiesta.

If you require a band of pros who know how to get a crowd going then look no further. Check out some of our live footage below.

  • 5 star review  Mister Kanish played at our wedding in July 2014 and our friends still talk about it! They did both their classic/vintage style and electric rocky style stuff and both were awesome! If we did it all again booking this band would be top of my 'to do' list!

  • 5 star review  We had Mister Kanish play at our festival weekend wedding in August 17 and they were absolutely brilliant. Really good at communicating beforehand and giving us an idea of the sorts of music they played - they also let us choose specific songs we did/didn't want. On the day they were extremely professional and a fantastic band, all of our guests loved them and we've recommended them to others!Thanks again! Steve

  • 5 star review  Hi Guys!!WOW!!!!! I don't even know if I have the words to tell you how lucky we feel to have had Mister Kanish at our wedding!!! I don't think I could ever have imagined having such an incredible night... From our first dance to the last minute of the night the dance floor was full and there wasn't a single person that didn't comment on how incredible you guys were!! We have never had so much fun and are absolutely over the moon that you were a massive part of a day that we will never ever forget. Messages are still flooding in about how amazing you were and I think we are half way through planning another party just to have you guys back!!! We didn't want it to end...I really can't thank you enough... You really were the highlight of our day and everyone else's that joined us!! Thank you so so so much!!!Best Wishes and we hope to see you again in the future!!Kelly and James

  • 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 οΏ½

Non-Stop Party Set

We can play for a full 90mins with our non-stop party set made up of medleys, stand alone tunes, and mashups, moving between styles as we go. The setlist is ideal for a festival crowd and encompasses, modern folk, 90s dance and hip hop, classic sing-along anthems, and chart hits that everyone will know and love.

Mix of Two Styles

We offer both a folk inspired Mumford and sons style with violin, mandolin, acoustic guitars and double bass, and also an electrified rock style both perfect on their own or equally awesome when mixed. Our repertoire contains a mix of classics and contemporary tunes. The sound is perfect for a festival as it's like having a main support and headliner all in one.

Horn section
Everyone loves brass. Our awesome horn section, made up of trumpet, trombone, and sax, can be added to Mister Kanish for any festival booking. This gives our usual setlist a hint of Rio Carnival blended with a ska skankathon all rolled into one. Highly recommended for bigger stages!
