Classic Kanish
Mumford & Sons Style Wedding Band

Add a trio of horns!

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.

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.

The guys can also offer line-ups with additional horns, and vocalists which you can see here - Mister X
