Verified profile

We are Andy, Ben, Chris, Dave, Ollie and Tim. Since 2006 we’ve provided the soundtrack to friendships old and new. We’ve played gentle acoustic sets at 3pm surrounded by serene Welsh hills. We’ve played 21st birthday parties where the host has drunkenly demanded an extra set at 3am, and the stage is drenched in booze. We’ve played to the most hardcore party goers until 4am in a historic Spanish Villa, or next to beautiful infinity pools in the seaside hills of Majorca. We’ve played countless first dances, each one a special memory. Those when the bride and groom have secretly rehearsed for weeks, performing flawlessly as one with the band, leaving everyone astounded – fathers clasping hands and mothers crying tears of joy. Then there’s those when the panick-stricken groom beckons all his mates to join him on stage, halfway through the intro. We’ve played Sunday afternoon river cruises on the Thames, flanked by tranquil Oxfordshire countryside. We’ve played Saturday nights in venues where the revelry is so intense, and so much flesh is visible on the dance floor, that bouncers have had to intervene. And we absolutely love it! When you book Mister Kanish, you know who is going to arrive at your event. Mister Kanish does not split up in to 2, 3 or 4 bands. We are together in the same place for every gig. There is only one Mister Kanish! We are the band you've been looking for!

Mister Kanish's Reviews

From customers:

6 years ago

Where to start! The friendliest group of guys you could ever wish to meet and so incredibly professional... They really are the best band out there and I would encourage anyone thinking of hiring Mister Kanish to just do it, you will not regret it!

I can not recommend this band highly enough! The most professional fun group of guys you will ever meet! Nothing was too much trouble for them to ensure George and Bridget had the best wedding party that they had hoped for. Words can not convey how I feel, thank you so much!
