MP4 The Band


Formed in 2004, MP4 are the first -and currently the world's only Parliamentary Rock band. They have helped to raise over £1 million for charity since their first gig in February of that year. When the Parliamentary timetable permits, they perform at charitable events around the country and actively encourage young people to take an interest in music.

MP4 are Kevin Brennan MP (guitar and vocals), former MP Ian Cawsey (bass guitar and vocals), The Rt Hon Sir Greg Knight MP (drums and percussion) and Pete Wishart MP (keyboards and vocals).

With a growing fan base, they have regularly performed before Ministers and MP's as well as the public. In 2005 their first single on EMI was downloaded by the then British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Prime Minister Theresa May has praised the fund-raising efforts of MP4. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also supports the group’s fund-raising efforts.

In 2016 they became the regular house band in the TV satirical show 'Unspun' broadcast on the Dave channel.

In November 2016, MP4 recorded a charity track to raise cash for the launch of the Jo Cox Foundation. The band were joined in the studio by the Kaiser Chiefs’ lead singer Ricky Wilson, KT Tunstall, David Gray and Cockney Rebel’s frontman Steve Harley along with members of the Parliamentary Choir, to record a new version of the Rolling Stones classic track ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’.

The recording is now on release to raise funds and awareness for the Foundation in memory of the life and work of Jo Cox MP, who was murdered in June 2016. It can be downloaded from Spotify and iTunes.

In October 2018 the group released their latest album called "MP4 - EP5" on Revolver Records (also available on iTunes.) Proceeds from the new release will go towards supporting homelessness charities.
