Outstanding Rock & Pop Wedding Band
Andy, Ben, Chris, Ollie and Tim have been playing and making music together since 2006. That's loads of time gigging together, rehearsing together, touring together and even living together and due to this they are perfectly in tune with each other musically and so make for the best entertainment for any wedding or party.
They are our resident house band and Chris from The Band Boutique plays bass. They have over 2million hits on youtube, tons of 5 star reviews on Facebook, and even won a French X-Factor style TV show which brought bands from all over the world to compete.
Previous corporate clients include Merryl Lynch, Williams Engineering, NotOnTheHighStreet, White Stuff, Holland and Barrett and Microsoft.
Mister Kanish - UK Wedding band
They provide the kind of entertainment that leaves everyone from the youngest kids to the senior citizens of the parade with huge grins on their faces, feverishly demanding “MORE!!!” As 5 friends with so many shared experiences they have crazy amounts of fun playing together, and their audiences can't help but feel part of the action. They are happy and able to play anywhere in the world.
They have provided the soundtrack to friendships old and new. They've played gentle acoustic sets at 3pm surrounded by serene Welsh hills. They've played 21st birthday parties where the host has drunkenly demanded an extra set at 3am, and the stage is drenched in booze.
Vintage Sound Available
The band were innovators of the mumford and sons style vintage wedding band. Check out their alternative band Classic Kanish if you are after something a bit different.
Specialists for Wedding Entertainment
The band have played countless first dances, each one a special memory. Those when the bride and groom have secretly rehearsed for weeks, performing majestically as one with the band leaving everyone astounded – fathers clasping hands and mothers crying tears of joy. Then there's those when the groom furiously beckons all his mates to join him on stage just after the intro. They've played Sunday afternoon river cruises on the Thames, flanked by tranquil Oxfordshire countryside. They've played Saturday nights in pubs where the revelry is so intense, and so much flesh is visible on the dance floor, that bouncers have had to intervene. All the while the band plays on. Mister Kanish always deliver, whatever the time or place.
The boys in Mister Kanish have all played in other wedding bands. The ones where members are in and out like ships in the night. The ones where you're told your band name on the night. It's nice to be spontaneous, it might even be “tight”, but there is rarely a vibe. When Mister Kanish perform, you'll be feeling the vibes. Everyone at your party will feel the vibes, for hours, weeks, even months... Vibes that only come from years of rehearsing and playing together. Vibes that come from each member of the band knowing what the other guys are going to do next. Mister Kanish roll seamlessly from one awesome tune to another, always playing off the audience, always eager to keep the party going and the dance floor packed.
Live Wedding Band
The Mister Kanish lineup of vocals, dual guitars, bass and drums gives a pure, live, energetic, rocking sound. What you don't get from Mister Kanish is anything fake – no cheesy strings, no synth brass, and never any pre-recorded backing tracks. What you see is what you get – highly talented musicians playing fully pro instruments and equipment, covering songs from the 50s to today with their own style and sound. Even if they play a song note for note, down to the last semiquaver in the last bar of the guitar solo, they will always sound like Mister Kanish.
The repertoire is mostly comprised of rock and pop, rather than funk, soul, or Motown. Mister Kanish are never likely to play “We Are Family”, “Celebrate” or “Car Wash”. There are hundreds of bands out there who will play that stuff and if that's what you're after, fair enough. They know from hundreds of gigs experience that their repertoire will keep the dance floor rammed.
Top Class Wedding Musicians
The guys in Mister Kanish have a great time doing what they do best, but they're not just about providing first class entertainment at weddings, parties and corporate events. They are all professional musicians, whose talents have led to many exciting ventures. The boys have shared stages with rock legends such as Roger Daltrey and Status Quo, plus Paul Gilbert (guitar god) and Tony Levin (bass behemoth). They have provided the musical backdrop to fresh-faced popsters James Bourne of Busted, Gareth Gates and Lil' Chris. They have played at major festivals including The Big Chill, Bestival and Wilderness. Guitarists Andy and Ollie were both part of the Original London West End Cast of Loserville the Musical.
