Choosing Mister Kanish as the band to play at our wedding has been the first thing we’ve done after getting engaged. We’ve found them during some random wandering session on YouTube years ago and fell in love with their cover of White Stripes - Seven Nation Army. We’re so glad we did choose them - they were FANTASTIC! There wasn’t a single guest who hasn’t commented on how awesome the music at the wedding was. We had people who’s never danced at any wedding before dancing the night away. I had no idea that Martyn (the groom) had such moves! 😂 We had an amazing time - the day after the wedding we’re sat in a bar, discussing the next upcoming ocassion to ask them to play for us, that’s how AWESOME they are. If you’re looking for the best band to play at your wedding, don’t think twice - just book Mister Kanish. THANK YOU GUYS for helping us have the best time at our wedding! Maggie & Martyn

They were absolutely amazing! Plus they are really lovely people too - friendly, fun, professional and very easy going! They were very mindful of speeches and noise levels when setting up / sound checking (we had them in different locations for the drinks reception and after dinner so this could have been stressful). Every single person who came to the wedding has commented on the band and many have asked for the band’s details to give to friends getting married/having parties. I honestly can’t praise this band enough - at the wedding the dance floor was never empty (and we’re not a family known for dancing!) Do not hesitate in booking this band!! I promise you will not be disappointed!!!

Went to a wedding this weekend where The Skip Jacks played. They were incredible. Really made the evening - added to the poignancy of the wedding then entertained with unbelievable talent, energy and a versatility which I have never experienced with any live band before. Simply brilliant!!!! 🙌🙌

Why Have a Live Band at Your Wedding?
Great and memorable weddings have incredible receptions that go on into the late hours. When you book a great wedding band your guests won't be able to leave the dance floor. You need the energy and electricity of a live wedding band to wow the crowd and get the party started.
Our bands have played hundreds of weddings and really our absolute professionals. They cover everything including learning your first dance song for you, bringing all the PA and equipment, and also providing a playlist for between their live sets so you don't need to hire a DJ. Having someone live on stage singing to you makes the moment extra-special, and people just love to see bands perform.
Compared to recorded music, a live band on your big day truly sets the tone and is hugely impactful and impressive. Our performers have the experience to sense the mood of the room and change the tempo or tunes to make sure the dance floor is full and all your guests are having a great time.
If you have a wedding or event and aren't quite sure what sort of entertainment you're looking for, please don't hesitate to give us a call or email with your venue postcode and event date and we'll find something perfect for you.
How to Make Your Party or Corporate Event a Success
People attend corporate events for all sorts of reasons, and one of the most important is to mix, socialise and make new contacts. Often, the best times are had at corporate events when there's live music playing and everyone is relaxing and networking.
Live music allows guests to let their hair down after the formality of the event and have a good time. It also says a lot about the host, that they went to the trouble of hiring a live band to entertain everyone. This is something valuable clients will surely remember and so a live band will help to build up relationships.
