They have a wide repertoire of songs including songs from shows such as Matilda. Known as KPAC, they have performed both within King Edward VI Community college, at local primary schools and further afield including the Devon County Show.
We know they just love performing, especially to a high standard!

Extremely sought after on the South Devon live pub circuit, 3BF, who were formed six years ago, have a repertoire which includes Pop, rock and indie music.
And the talented trio cite Stevie Wonder, Doors, Beatles, Jeff Beck, Jackson, Dylan and Cat Stevens as just some of their influences!
Three Bags Full bring upbeat fun to classic covers and comprise singer and acoustic guitarist Barney Dine, bass-playing vocalist Angie Dine, and djembi kick drumming singer-guitarist Dean Mancey.
3BF have recently released their own self-titled album and play to packed-out gigs at venues around South Devon.
Devon Youth Jazz Orchestra - Ambassadors
The Jazz Ambassadors of Devon Youth Jazz Orchestra are made up of the best soloists from the two bands which make up this renowned orchestra which is itself home to the best of Devon’s young jazz musicians.
As well as concerts and numerous events Devon Youth Jazz Orchestra also play at many of the main festivals in Devon including Dartmouth Music Festival and Budleigh Jazz Festival.
We are very excited to welcome Devon Youth jazz Orchestra to the Totnes Show Music Stage for the first time this year which is also the 40th anniversary of their formation.
Roz Harding, one of the regions’s top jazz musicians, is the Jazz Ambassadors specialist coach and leads their rehearsals.
A favourite at festivals, singer songwriter Sam has performed regularly and successfully in and around Devon and Cornwall at venues such as Mama Stones and The Phoenix. Sam has a large repertoire of songs, both upbeat and ballads and can perform over 100 covers from artists such as John Mayer and Bruno Mars.
Sam is already having a very busy year including having supported Luke Friend of the X Factor at The Barrel House recently, playing 3 gigs at Dartmouth Music Festival and singing on Glastonbury FM.
He has supported The Kinks original band as well as having opened the Kingsbridge Festival.
He has recently released his EP called “Building Blocks”.
The Simmertones are a seasoned nine-piece ska and reggae band from the Southwestwho get their audiences dancing at packed venues with their infectious livesound.
In 2014theyhadtheir biggest hit to date, with a release of a cover version of the well-known classic 'Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps' (which contains samples of 'Perhaps,Perhaps, Perhaps' by Doris Day under licence from Sony Music Entertainment).
The acclaimed debut recording ‘Presenting the Simmertones Vol I’ features their infectious cover of the Dr Who theme tune – some say better than the original! – which delivered the bandstraight to audiences of Radio 1, Radio 2 and 6 Music, along with a host ofregional BBC and commercial stations.
Setting themselves apart from other Ska bands with their self-penned songs and true vintage Ska sound, The Simmertones effortlessly attract attention, including cameo appearances on their recordings from the likes of Phil Daniels (Quadrophenia, Parklife) and Steve Cradock (Ocean Colour Scene, Paul Weller).
