is a saying that the journey of 1,000 miles begins with the first step and for
some what a journey! Who would have guessed that when Jamaican sprinter Usain
Bolt took his first timid steps as a toddler, he would one day become a world
class sprinter – but had he not taken that first step, he would not have learnt
to walk then run.
on over to the wickedest musical vibes and enter the rhythmic realms of Keevon
Douglas a.k.a. the notorious DJ Von. New to the area? No problem. Every
Saturday morning from 10am to 2pm he stars on The Early Vibes Show and you will
find yourself immersed in musical frenzy that will get you up and ticking. DJ
Von is, without argument, one of the toughest DJs to hit the Cayman circuit in
recent times, blazing a trail throughout the world, namely Canada, Miami,
Orlando, Jamaica and St.Maarten, leaving his competition choking on his dust
and his party patrons lightened up with his unique and infectious DJ style.
When not travelling to exotic places one can catch him live at L.I. Night Club

what you have learnt into a style unique to you. When Keevon Douglas a.k.a. DJ
Von finally touched the road, it was mayhem. The competition was shocked! The
patrons were rocked and Cayman’s entertainment circuit has not been the same
2004 Hurricane Ivan struck and DJ Von’s equipment was not spared its wrath. The
devastation would have made one with lesser or no vision recoil in oblivion but
the DJ retreated to Cayman Brac, gathered new perspective, and then once again,
unleashed his fervour anew on Grand Cayman. Still, before he returned he woke

entered at the last minute and on competition night was awarded the People’s
Choice Award. This was not the coveted
crown for number one but it was enough to gain the attention of his current
radio employer and the rest, as they say, is history.
