Mumford and Sons Wedding Band
Mumford and Sons wedding band Mister Kanish started the festival band craze way back in 2013 when we decided the event industry was missing something a little different. We thought why not put together a band that play super upbeat folky cover versions of all the songs we'd been playing at weddings and events. So we cracked out the violin, double bass and acoustic guitars and crafted our own style. You won't hear music like this anywhere else. We play Britney Spears, UK garage, pop, rock, hip hop all in our own vintage style. And people seem to enjoy it!!
One of our folky cover versions saw us voted #1 Covers Band in the world, by the people of France on a TV show showed watched by over a million people.

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!!

These guys are amazing musicians and great entertainers too. I've seen a lot of wedding bands but the set they performed was absolutely perfect for the crowd and the reaction from the dance floor definitely showed they knew how to get the audience dancing and singing along too. Thanks for a fab night. I hope to see you again soon!

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!

Highly, highly recommend Mister Kanish. They had the dance floor at our wedding packed and jumping from start to finish. Really versatile, high energy and it was also great to have the acoustic set outside for our ceremony and drinks reception. Nothing but kind words from all our guests and they were a pleasure to deal with as well. Thanks again guys!

We first saw Mister Kanish play at a wedding a couple of years back and straight away said that when the time came for us to get married we have to have them too. We even checked they were available before booking our date! Chris made the process so easy and when it finally came to the wedding evening they were amazing.... the dance/garage/hip-hop melodies are incredible and they get the dance floor filled from the first minute til the last. You guys should be an essential pick for anyone planning a wedding or event, everyone loved you, and we can’t thank you enough ? Ryan & Chelsey

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

Folk Style FAQ
Here are a list of questions we are asked frequently by clients who are interested in our Mumford and Sons style.
Our wedding venue has a sound limiter - can you cope?
We regularly play wedding venues with sound restrictions. Our folky style is perfect for this as we don't require loud amplifiers to get that acoustic sound across. We also regularly use a state of the art electric drum kit which means we can be as loud or as quiet as is needed and have full control over the sound. Some venues we've played with sound limitations include Cain Manor in Surrey, The Tithe Barn in Petersfield, and Cripps Barn in Gloucestershire. I'd say the lowest limit we can realistically do is around 85db, but please ask us if you are unsure. We have also, on occasion, performed fully acoustically, but don't recommend this as it's often tricky to be heard over a crowd.
What songs from your repertoire can you play in the Mumford and Sons style?
We can play around 90% of our songs in the repertoire on the acoustic instruments. Some of the heavier stuff is a little tricky but we've adapted folky versions for some that you might not expect including the garage medley, thong song, and Mr Brightside.
I'm worried that the folky style isn't upbeat enough for our wedding - will people dance?
Absolutely yes. We engineered the sound based on super upbeat folk bands like Mumford and Sons, The Gypsy Kings, and Crystal Fighters with the aim for it to be as pumping as possible. The arrangements we have created are as upbeat as can be and more often than not guests hit the dance floor immediately and stay there from start to finish.
If we have a special request or first dance can you folk it up?
We've arranged a lot of special requests for brides and grooms over the years. You can see a fair few of these rehearsed on our youtube or instagram. Tracks have included Stacey's Mom, Eye of The Tiger, You Are The Best Thing and more.
