These kids are the cutest things you’ll ever see. Ranging from what looks like 10-16 this all boy band is slowly taking the Philly area with the help of the crazy powerful vocals from their lead singer Alex.
The band consists of lead guitarist Ricky, singer/ backup guitarist Alex, bass player Aaron, and drummer Tim. They’re only doing covers right now but their website says that their guitarist Ricky is working on some originals for the band to play at upcoming shows at World Cafe Live in Wilmington on May 3rd at 7pm and the TLA on June 14th at 7pm.
Definitely looks like the making of the next big pop boy band, look out pre teen girls.
