Interview with KB Sounds

When guests find themselves looking for hotels in Devon with entertainment, it’s safe to say that Langstone Cliff is always a strong contender.

We make sure to delight and entertain the families who stay with us (we have plenty of activities and even a pool).

To give you some more insight into the acts we book, we caught up with long-time Langstone entertainer KB Sounds.

Hello Kevin, thanks for taking the time to have a chat with us. Let’s start with how long you have been in the business.

Hi, no problem. I have been in the business of DJ Entertainment for over twenty-five years!

What made you want to do the job you do?

Having enjoyed holiday parks as a child with my family and watching and enjoying entertainers I soon realised that this is what I wanted to do. I have always had a passion for music and dance – it all stemmed from the days of playing records on my record player in my bedroom. I was always the last person on the dance floor at hotels and holidays parks and this is still the case today! 

How long have you been performing at Langstone Cliff Hotel?

I have been entertaining at Langstone Cliff for many years; my role of DJ entertainment can enhance a variety of functions. In recent years I have had the pleasure of entertaining children and families for the summer season – I am very much looking forward to summer 2019! 

What do you like most about the Langstone Cliff Hotel?

It has to be the approach – what you can see and how that makes you feel as you get closer to the hotel is breath-taking in itself. I have always noticed the welcoming greeting that’s always a staple from the dedicated staff members – that small but important touch makes Langstone a wonderful place to visit and provide DJ entertainment. The features within the hotel that stand out to me are the ballrooms; I enjoy working in both The Lincoln room and Washington Ballroom.

If you can, describe your act in three words!

Interactive, funny, out-there.

If people haven’t seen you before, what can they expect from your shows at Langstone Cliff?

An interactive evening of music, dancing and laughter including a family-friendly interactive quiz and games for the children. For me, it’s all about making a party atmosphere.

Your job is to entertain people – what entertains you?

I enjoy stand-up comics, light entertainment programmes and live music.

What is your favourite part of your own act?

Party and line dancing. The interactive quiz and bringing people together – I aim to entertain and help people make memories.

Can you share an anecdote about Langstone Cliff or your show

Sometimes I turn up for work to perform as usual, only to find the evening has been taken over by several children who have their own agenda planned for the evening! When this happens, I find myself changing my set to the requests of the youngsters. It’s great to offer that flexibility and work to the crowd. A fabulous time was had by all including myself. Keeping people happy and having fun as always are the name of the game!

We have to agree! Thanks Kevin. Just before you go what would you like guests to know about your upcoming shows?

My passion is to provide DJ entertainment that everyone can enjoy. Luckily at Langstone Cliff, guests are encouraged to take part in all elements of their holiday, so it isn’t hard for me to get people to join in and leave the evening having had a good time with KB Sounds.

Thanks for talking to us Kevin! Keep an eye out for which Langstone favourite we talk to next. If you want to have some fun, then why not come and experience all that we have to offer? We’d love to have you – we are after all the most family-friendly hotel in Devon. Join in the fun and visit us for May half term, we have a fun-packed week planned for all the family!

We really are one of the best hotels in Devon with entertainment – book your stay today.
