We are a band who play the best songs by all your favourite bands and artists with a sound of our own. For stripped down acoustic covers, folky Mumford and Sons style knees ups, funked up classics, hip hop beatdowns to full out rock riffage… there is no band as versatile as Mister Kanish. We have over 75 five star reviews on facebook, 100% positive feedback and nearly 3million youtube plays.

We’ve been playing together as Mister Kanish since 2006. Mister Kanish can only be in one place at any one time, because we come as a unit. There is only one Mister Kanish out there, and we are the band you’re looking for.

We were also voted #1 Covers Band in the world, by the people of France on a TV show showed watched by one million people.

Mister Kanish are one of the UK's most popular wedding bands. Whether you’re getting married in a yurt in a field or at a swanky hotel, we are the band you’re looking for. As well as rocking the party we can also offer a wealth of awesome extras such as ceremony music, wandering drinks reception sets, or even throw in a trio of awesome horn players. We cover everything so you don't have to think about DJ's, lights or Public Liability Insurance.

  • positive review  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

  • positive review  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

  • positive review  There are no words to describe how kind, thoughtful and incredibly talented this group of gentlemen are. From enquiring about booking them, to learning and playing our first dance outside, to rocking the dance floor with everything from Britney to The Killers, Mister Kanish were everything you could wish for from a wedding band, and more! We are eternity grateful! Thank you so very much, from the new Mr & Mrs Taylor-Holt!

  • 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

Why book us?

Over 10 Years Of Experience

Mister Kanish formed in 2006 and we have been playing together every year since. We play over 50 weddings or events a year. We know your event is probably going to be a one off, and we want to make it amazing. We are a band who has worked in every situation, and solved every problem possible.

We're a real band

Many bands are made up of groups of musicians, who may not have even met before showing up at your event. Mister Kanish is no collection of hired guns, we are the real deal. We’re just like one of your favourite bands, but we play all of your favourite bands’ music. Mister Kanish can only be in one place at a time - make it your event!

Versatility

We offer Classic Kanish, our folk/vintage setup, featuring double bass, mandolin, violin, banjo and acoustic guitars - as well as Mister Kanish, our regular rock and pop setup. Frequently we perform at events using both setups - these are always the best gigs. To take it to the next level we can add a 3 piece horn section too.

Communication

When you contact Mister Kanish, you’ll be contacting us directly. There is no agent or middle man. Most likely it will be Chris, our bass player, otherwise Ollie or Andy. Check out our individual pages to put a friendly face to a name. We will be on hand to answer your questions, and concerns throughout the wedding, or event planning stages. We're always happy to give advice on how to make your event the best in can be.

Testimonials
Don’t just take our word for it - check out our testimonials page and Facebook reviews all from genuine happy brides, grooms and clients. People don’t say we are a good band, or even a great band - they say we are “THE BEST BAND EVER” (“Best band I’ve ever seen… and I’ve been to Glastonbury” - that’s a direct quote. BOOM.)
Voted Worlds Best Cover Band

A few years ago we played a TV show in France where they were looking for the world's best cover band. We came up against Russians, Germans, Americans, The French, and more and came in top. Over a million people watched and voted. See the video of our final performance here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuT-r_eW4a0 - if you don't recognise our singer Ben, that's because after this video he went on to loose over 17 stone!!
