Get In Touch


Classic Kanish are the first Mumford and Sons Style wedding band having started playing together in 2005 and introducing the style to their repertoire in February 2013. Due to this they have an unrivalled set list of contemporary and classic dance, r'n'b, rock, pop, metal, soul, funk and anything else they can think of in a distinctive folk and vintage style that appeals to all ages. They have been likened on many occasion to Mumford and Sons and offer a few of their hits. You'll recognise the music they play but not the way they play it.

Their sets are designed get you up and dancing and singing along, but if you prefer they can also offer background music perfect for just sitting back to relax, listen and watch. With an interesting variety of instruments including double bass, banjo, acoustic guitar, violin, mandolin, and drums they take you on a journey through pop with a folk styled twist.

Seasoned Wedding and Events Band

Mister Kanish have been together since 2005 and have lived, toured and grown up together musically which means they have a vibe, tightness and sound that many other vintage styled bands can not match. Having played countless numbers of gigs together the band has been honed into something very special. They are born performers and always get great feedback at any wedding or party that they play.

The band have performed for corporate clients including, Williams / Martini, Microsoft, Holland & Barrett, NotOnTheHighStreet, White Stuff and more.

Talented Musicians

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, Toploader 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.

The guys are all busy session musicians, having collectively written and recorded on hundreds of songs for artists all over the world.

Alternative Wedding Entertainment

If you want a band that is dancey, contemporary and plays music you and your guests will know, but don't want to stick with the same old cheesey style of function band, Mister Kanish are perfect for you. They offer all the hits in an interesting folky vintage style. If you want to mix and match they are able to offer a mix of a vintage and fully electric bands. To hear more from the fully electric band click here. It's up to you how you want your night to be and Mister Kanish aim to be as flexible as possible to make your wedding or event perfect. If you want to start the night off with something a bit different why not have a 50 minute or 1 hour vintage set followed by some fully electric sets.

Mister Kanish!! Thank you so much for the epic night you put on for us on Saturday! We have had so many people raving about you and how great the music was all day. Thank you also for dealing so patiently and with such good humour with the over-enthusiastic stage invaders and the impromptu Aussie karaoke session in between the 2nd and 3rd set! A special thank you to Chris who I understand was really not well (Chris – I ended up going into hospital the next day – that’s commitment!) and still showed up to deliver such an amazing performance – I hope you are feeling better! We’ve been watching you on YouTube for 18 months and reading every review we could get our hands on but you still over-delivered – it was just what we wanted for our wedding! Thank you so much! Liz and Will Langton – June 2017

We booked Mister Kanish to play their classic, folky style at our wedding in May 2017. It’s fair to say they were simply amazing and without a doubt the highlight of the entire day. People never left the dance floor and the guys are first to be mentioned when we chat to anyone about our wedding. Everything was flawless from booking to tailoring the music to the crowd, learning our first dance & throwing in some 90s rap in between songs! Cannot recommend highly enough and wish we had another occasion to book them for. Thanks, Louise & Dave – Wedding, May 2017

Hi Chris, I’d like to say a big thank you for yesterday you made our day very special and you were amazing, all the guests couldn’t stop talking about you. Thanks for making our day even more special Sarah and Lawrence – Wedding, March 2017

Hi Chris, Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. We cannot thank you enough for not only playing at our wedding, but helping to make the day truly memorable. We absolutely loved your unique take on well-known songs, and even going the extra mile with requests that you may not have been familiar with. Definitely above and beyond!!! Once again, thank you so much. All the best, Adam and Vicky – Wedding, January 2017

We had a fantastic day and a huge part of it was down to Mister Kanish! Everyone has been raving about you and we've lost count of how many friends and family have described you guys as 'the best wedding band ever' (it’s still happening 3 weeks later!)! The music was absolutely brilliant and everyone had such a fantastic time and you had everyone dancing all night which I don’t think I have ever seen before - and all generations too which was lovely to see. Also a massive thanks as well for being so flexible and happy to keep the party going slightly longer than planned given how much fun everyone was having and not wanting the evening to come to an end! It goes without saying that if we’re ever asked for any wedding recommendations you will be top of the list! Many thanks again, Charlie and Claire - Wedding September 2016

"We have been bombarded ever since Saturday night with messages about how amazing you guys were! You absolutely made the day for us. We couldn't believe that the dance floor was totally packed all night with everyone from 16- 79. It really was the total highlight of the day for us and I'm so so pleased we found you and you were free! We were also really grateful for how smoothly everything went with the set up etc so thanks also for that." - Rebecca - 20th August 2016

"There are literally no words that can express just how awesome you guys were at our wedding! You had everyone up on their feet the entire night, I’ve never been to a wedding where people danced so much, it was amazing to see at our own wedding! We just wanted to say a huge thanks to all of you for making the effort to come all the way to Norfolk and play for us all. We had compliments from everyone at the wedding, older and younger! You guys have been brilliant from the outset, we can’t thank you enough for topping off what truly was an amazing day. “ - Philippa & Christian - 6th August 2016

"On behalf of my wife and I, our families and friends we just want to say thank you for making our evening the best it could of possibly been. You guys topped off an incredible day for us and we are so grateful. You were better than we remember” - Ben and Dani - 15th July 2016
