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 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  • positive review  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

  • positive review  We had Mister Kanish play at our wedding in July last year, and what can I say...THE best wedding band EVER!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ 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 (Iโ€™m pretty certain this will be a first for them...and probably a last ๐Ÿ˜‚ but they learnt it anyway and did an amazing job!!!). Plus, you know when your band do a rendition of the Thong Song, youโ€™ve picked the best! ๐Ÿ˜† 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 theyโ€™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 couldnโ€™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 youโ€™re still undecided, rest assured you wonโ€™t be disappointed if you book Mister Kanish, and you might just regret it if you donโ€™t!!! Love Nicole and Chris! โœจ๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜„ xxx

  • 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  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  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!
