Butterflies were fluttering in my stomach. Cold beads of sweat were standing on my forehead. Peering nervously out of the curtains, I saw it... a sea of heads chanting our band name. Was I going to fail? What if they hated our songs? Questions filled my head, and then I felt a gentle hand rest on my shoulder. It was Kutie Kream and she was telling me to relax and not to worry too much. The clock struck seven. This was it! The pressure was on! One mistake and wed’ get tomatoes! If it went smoothly, we’d get flowers.
Cautiously, I stepped onto the stage. Remembering who I was, I paused and then ran out! Our fans were totally mad! Cheerfully, I took my hat off and threw it into the audience. They screamed with excitement then fell silent as the first note was struck. My heart pounded like the waves against the sea shore and the audience clapped to the music. This was a good sign. As soon as the concert was finished silence filled the hall. Did they hate the show? Suddenly, the audience was clapping and screaming, some were whistling. A wide grin spread across each of our faces as we accepted the bunches of roses that were handed to us.
I couldn’t stop smiling, I was just so happy! Proudly, I skipped backstage; as soon as I got there I hugged each member of our band.
I wish I could write more but it is getting late.
A few hours before the biggest concert of my life, my heart was thumping like a giant drum. However, I also felt excited. Beads of sweat were trying their best to hang on my body. I knew that if I failed, all the hard work would be wasted forever! Nervously, I peeked out of the window; I could hear thousands of fans yelling my name at the top of their voices. This made me feel a little more confident.
When 30 minutes had past, I quickly grabbed my heavy electric guitar and stepped onto the stage and into the spot light. With my hands shaking, I picked up the microphone and started to sing. Slowly, I looked out into the audience where I could see fans waving flags and banners with my name written on it. At this moment I felt like a God! I started to relax and enjoy the exciting song. By the end of the 4th song I felt energetic and I started to march around the whole stage. Several hours later, the concert was clearly a success, as the crowed were cheering and clapping.
Sadly my first ever concert had to come to an end. I realized that I had given my fans an exciting night and I am pretty sure they will come back to watch me rock around the stage!
Butterflies were fluttering around my stomach, my heart was pounding. I was nervous. I was scared. Cold beads of sweat were standing on my forehead. Peering through the curtains, I gazed out upon a sea of heads, cheering my name. The pressure was on! The seconds were counting down 10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3….2…1…! Grabbing my bass guitar, I quickly followed my band into the stage.
Koko (Nicole Ning Karena) was kicking and screaming as she entered the world that stood inviting her only a spec of dust away. There she was on the fourth of March, 1982. Her Mum’s name was Marilyn; her Dad’s name was Cameron. Koko’s twin brother was called Mark, her other brother was called Jo and she had two sisters called Lauren and Katie.
Koko always remembers being into music! She told us that even at pre-school she wanted to perform and sing.
‘I remember being in my seat in pre-school, having a music lesson. We were learning how to clap in time to the beat. At the tender age of 3 I obviously found that boring so started to sing my own song to the beat! Ever since then, I have performed whenever I got the chance!’
In 1987, she started ‘The Dominican School’ in the
After university she tried really hard to form a band, but went to several auditions without any success! However a random visit to McDonalds changed her life forever! She shared the amazing story with us!
‘Kutie Kream (Katie) and I had arranged to meet in McDonalds. We were on the phone when Kit Kat came and asked if she could sit down next to me because there were no seats available. At first I didn’t recognize her but then I did, she was my neighbour from when I was young! A minute later Kutie Kream walked in the crowded room, we had a long chat and suddenly… Krazy Kaz jumped in Kutie Kream’s face and started to go hyper. The craziness had only just begun. We all introduced ourselves and spent all afternoon chatting about our common love: music! In the end, we decided to form a band. We finally came up with the name K K Krunches.’
Currently, they have just finished recording their first album: Night Out; to be released in time on the 9th April, 2010. Their hit album is Night Out; it was released on the 20th November. Right now they are recording their new song called: K K K.
Rihannah – also known as Krazy Kaz - was born on February 19th, 1986 in the UCLA hospital,
At the age of six, Rihannah began to learn to play the drums, although it was while she was listening to some Elvis Presley’s music with her dad, she declared that one day she would like to be able to perform like him and become a wealthy rock star! The very next day, she was ringing the bell of her neighbours house (the Gibson’s) and asking Katie, her best friend to form a band.
The eldest Samson attended
Finally, in 1997 she moved to Secondary School! She loved being able to spend her whole break time in the music room. In 1998, she started year 8 and on the first morning of school she walked into her tutor room and noticed a familiar looking face! It was Katie her old neighbour! From that day on, they both spent their time trying to write and play new songs in the music department!
Soon, Rihannah graduated from high school and moved onto
It was on that trip that she met up with Katie again. They spent several weeks travelling and playing music together, with two other girls: Nicole, Katie’s cousin, and Katrina. That is how the K K Krunches began!
Back in the
Katrina (was born in Australia H.K.S.A hospital, on March 5th, in 1988, at 5:40am). Her Mum (Rachel) was a secretary and her Dad (John) was a Judge, so he was the one that sorted problems out for the whole family. Also she had a brother called Alex. He was the best at everything and very clever. When Katrina was 4, she started to enjoy playing instruments, so her mum let her learn to play the piano. This gave Katrina the idea of forming a band when she got older. Luckily this came true!
When Katrina was in
In August 1999, Katrina and her family moved to the
In 2007, she graduated and became a tutor. Each day, 5 or 6 students would come to her house to get support with their studies. Every night, after the students had finished gone; she would go to the lowest floor and sit in her own sound room to practise her guitar. Also, she loved spending time researching different guitar skills on the computer. However, Katrina missed family, so in 2008 she moved back to the
In 2009, they all moved to the
