Mosque were an English rock band that formed in 1987. Whilst sticking to no one style, their music was largely influenced by new prog and alternative rock. Mosque consisted of Shaun Keaveny (vocals/guitar), Paul Banks (vocals/bass), John Ariss (vocals) and Leon Parr (percussion).

Keaveny has since gone on to be breakfast radio presenter for BBC 6 Music. Leon Parr is still a session percussionist, who has performed with Mr. So & So, Marillion and members of The Verve.

Mosque reformed for one night only for "An Audience With Shaun Keaveny" at Leigh Library on Saturday 12 February 2011.
