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.

Mister Kanish were playing at a wedding where I was doing the photography last weekend and can honestly say they were brilliant. They played such a wide range of songs from different decades. The style, vocals and instruments were all fantastic! Great bunch of guys too and really engaged with the guests, highly recommended 🙂

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!

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

Having seen you guys play at a friend's wedding, you were our very first booking for our own wedding more than a year ago and I am SO pleased you could make it. We are really pleased we chose to have the 8 piece with horns, it sounded awesome. You are all so incredibly talented and the diverse range of songs covered made it so much fun!! We have had nothing but positive comments from our guests and as your selfie video demonstrates you really got the crowd on to the dancefloor!! I am really hoping that we get to see you again soon, because you are just SO darn good! Thanks again xx

I half bullied my co-hosts in to picking Mister Kanish and had to be even more persuasive about adding on the horns, but so, so happy we had them.
We took the decision to leave the repertoire to them and to mix things up to keep everyone dancing. They completely made the party and we would definitely recommend them. From first enquiry, through two sets, a brilliant encore and efficient packing up, all of the band have been so easy and professional to deal with.
Nothing but fabulous feedback from our guests.

Saw you guys at the Oktoberfest in Colchester, great, great band! The Mrs is going to enquire around weddings in the near future!

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.

Where to start! The friendliest group of guys you could ever wish to meet and so incredibly professional during the run up to our wedding and, of course, on the day itself. They're very quick to respond to any questions beforehand (which is very reassuring for a nervous bride!) and are very accommodating when it comes to requests. They really are the best band out there and I would encourage anyone thinking of hiring Mister Kanish to just do it, you will not regret it!

What a band!! They capped off our wedding day perfect, thanks again guys �

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.
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!
