We Want You!


Martyr Kanin is looking to expand and is seeking a lead guitarist and a keyboardist. We’re currently focusing on original material, but at live shows we also play a wide variety of covers spanning multiple genres. You must be 21 or older, be dependable, and have your own transportation. Creativity and a good ear for music are vital.
If you think you might be a good fit, please contact us!

A Night of Laughter

Mark your calendars, folks! We’re performing at A Night of Laughter at the State Theatre in Uniontown on Saturday, April 14. We hit the stage at 7:00, followed by a live stand-up comedy show at 8:00. All the info you need is right here on our Events page. Hope to see you there!

New Year

Happy New Year to all the Martyr Kanin fans out there, and congratulations to our lead singer Michael Miskanin on the birth of his son! As Mike adjusts to parenthood, the band is taking a brief hiatus from playing live shows so we can focus on getting back into the studio to record some new music. Stay tuned!

End of Summer Shows

Looking for an excuse to plan a few more outings before summer’s over? We’ve got you covered. Whether your scene is bike night or a winery, a road trip to Frostburg or the good old Fayette County Italian Festival, we’ll be there to entertain you while you lament summer’s end — or celebrate sending the kids back to school! Check out our upcoming shows on the Events page or Facebook.

Happy Fourth of July!

Celebrate Independence Day in style this year with Martyr Kanin! We’re playing at the annual Rockin’ Rib Fest in Connellsville tonight from 6:00 to 8:00, then tomorrow we’ll be at the Mountain Area Fair in Farmington from 7:00 to 11:00. We hope to see you out and about this weekend, but whatever you do, have fun and stay safe!
