THE MINI BAND — the Thatcham, United Kingdom-based group made up of 8- and 10-year-olds were invited backstage at Wembley Arena with Dream Theater. Not only did they get to go to the stage, but got to play the drums and guitar. This was all made possible by Rena and John Petrucci who setup this incredible day for the kids.
As individuals, the members of THE MINI BAND have created a real stir, with Zoe getting over 250,000 hits on one YouTube video! Harry has been featured on TV and Bugera amplifiers web site, and Charlie has an endorsement for drum sticks.
