KahBang Preview with Rob Burnell

It’s almost time for KahBang! The fun starts tomorrow with the KahBang Kickoff Party in Westmarket Square in Bangor. That’s where you can see Rob Burnell, your Sound Off! Competition winner, take to the stage to get the crowd ready for a weekend of fun and music. I caught up with Rob to see what he’s been up to since his big win and how he’s feeling about his KahBang debut.

Kylie: Rob, how did it feel to be voted in as the Sound Off! Competition winner? 

Rob: Well, after a lot of work, it felt really good. It was a week long process of waking up every morning and seeing somebody else ahead of me, and just fighting for it. It definitely felt awesome.

Kylie: What have you been up to since your win?

Rob: I’ve been working a lot. I’ve been gigging even more. I had five gigs last week, so I’m still kind of feeling that. I’ve just been playing as much as I can and getting ready for KahBang.

Kylie: Are you excited for KahBang? 

Rob: I’m stoked. It’ll be great to kick off the show.

Kylie: Absolutely, start the weekend off right. Have you ever performed for a crowd quite that big?

Rob: That’s definitely going to be my biggest crowd. It’s going to be nerve-wracking, but I’ll do it. 

Kylie: Do you ever get stage fright?

Rob: I kind of get the butterflies at first, maybe the first verse I’ll feel it, but I’ll just take a deep breath and get it done.

Rob Burnell will go on at 5 p.m. and the Kickoff Concert is FREE! Check out the full schedule at KahBang.com for more details on the whole weekend of events.

I can’t wait to see everyone there!
