How is a violinist born? Kevin Holmstrom, K on Humorgruppen KAJ, he already knew as a kid that he wanted to be on stage.
On this Vegas winter talk show, he talks about his great love for entertainment – and the night guest who has come to stay. How to arrange a wedding in the fall of Corona 2020 and if so, how?
How is a violinist born?
Kevin Holmstrom loved to perform and play as a child. At home, at my grandmother and at my mom’s job, wherever there is an opportunity.
Kevin leads to Grandma.
Almost three-year-old child stands on the kitchen sofa and sings in the high sky. He’s wearing a red Mickey Mouse shirt.
If you can do enough at a young age, you will recognize both the ups and downs and are beneficial for development, says Kevin Holmstrom.
He has performed in everything from Christmas carols and Lucia performances at the village school in Comosa to plays and theater to small and large theaters around Swedish Finland.
– Standing on stage and being entertained is some of the best I know!
Kevin is the K at KAJ
The KAJ humor group was born when three Austroopothianian boys realized their brains work the same way. Bonds of friendship were already formed during the elementary school years.
– At the end of the villa a distinguished boy appeared in the adjacent yard. I was gay, but he was still of a young age – incredibly young. Axl was.
Axel Uman is the A in KAJ.
– Once in elementary school she went to a disco in Maxmo. Axel was there with a friend who I heard a lot about. I rarely liked it so much! He can beat both lyrics and her lyrics over a lot of songs.
It was Jacob Norgard, J at KAJ.
I don’t think I would have had the strength to sing and joke were it not for these. You need a like-minded person, someone who says they’re totally okay, deserving of something and that you’re not exactly a freak.
“On the way to the party, always on the way to the party.”

“The danger lurks beneath the surface.”
But why do you speaks, sing, humor, and dance?
The danger is always present and lurking, that there will be complete failure. Suddenly you’re standing there with your pants down and shy, the cold sweat explodes and the spark of life extinguishes.
Why do you expose yourself to it?
– Maybe just because I don’t know anything better. Nothing looks as good as it did when it worked. But sometimes I think about the price.
The price of staying in the spotlight has led to a wave of social phobia. Especially when Kevin has a lot going on.
I find it difficult to focus on anything other than that I feel bad and there is a negative spiral that is deepening more and more.
Although Kevin gets better at anticipating a reaction and preventing him from completely controlling it, the anxiety sometimes comes back.
I had no sense of asking for help yet. Maybe this is something I’ll be doing in 2021.
KAJ plays the Jakobs dagarna in Jakobstad. “KAJ is the humor group who whisks and entertain little insects in Swedish Finland at regular intervals.”
Team KAJ humor stands on stage with an audience behind them showing their thumbs up.
Marriage amid a pandemic
There is more to life than Spex and entertainment. Kevin met Lena and quickly opened their eyes to each other.
Each idea served it and widened my view of the world a little. Being with her was safe and excited at the same time.
The couple got engaged and in the fall of 2020 there will be a wedding. But the virus began to spread, and Ousima was banned and mold was found in the party room.
– If you believe in signs – that the universe wants to tell us something – then we have signs for that. That was enough and over.
Arranging a wedding can be a real ordeal for a relationship. There are many decisions to be made and a lot of tension.
– But the wedding due to the Corona pandemic will be the biggest moral dilemma of my life – I would never have believed it.
Kevin and Lena got along well with each other, followed the recommendations of the authorities and the day has become a great atmosphere.
What do we live for if not each other? We should celebrate love and life with each other.
