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  Oh my god....we are so rubbish....its taken us too long to write this review. We are very lucky to call the handsome lead singer of this band a good friend of ours and we couldn't have dreamed of having anyone else play at our wedding...luckily the band he is in is flipping fantastic too! Mr Kanish absolutely made our wedding reception. There was never a point when the dance floor wasn't full to the brim and our guests were blown away...we had loads specifically contact us after to ask for their name to spread the word. I literally cannot recommend this band enough. Guys, you absolutely smashed it and the 'oldies' generation moshing out to 'killing in the name of' is somerhing that we will never forget. HIRE THIS BAND!!! Love Guy and Rach X x

  • 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  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!!

  • positive review  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.

  • 5 star review  Dear Ollie, and all the MK boys! From the bottom of our hearts Sally and I (Merriscourt, Sept 30th, 2017), would like to say an incredible thank you for helping to make our wedding day so special. We'd be lying if we didn't say that we had high expectations - having watched 'all' your videos online! - but you truly blew us away. You guys are good for every five star review and I'm not embarrassed to admit I was even a little star-struck! Parklife and the Calvin Harris songs we asked for we're an absolute highlight, but nothing could top the finale of multiple encores finishing with Oasis' 'Don't Look Back In Anger', with all our guests circling us and coming in at the end. Possibly the highlight of the entire evening! To any soon-to-be married couples out there looking for a band, then look no further. The lads were friendly, professional, were easy to deal with, sounded incredible, and had everyone talking about them the following day. We genuinely couldn't have asked for more... Sally and I always said how much we wanted the dance-floor filled all night, it was one of our big hopes for the day, and MK made this happen. We hope you had a good time too and, once again, thanks so much. All the best. Ben and Sally McGrath

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!
