Mini Band

Mini Band’s cover of Metallica’s Enter Sandman goes viral on YouTube


A video of a group of children aged between eight and 10 performing Metallica’s hit Enter Sandman has gone viral, attracting over a million YouTube views in less than a week.

The group, who go by the stage name Mini Band, consists of eight-year-olds Kieran Fell, Harry Jackson, Zoe Thomson and Harrison Read on lead vocals and ten-year-olds Charlie Emmons on drums and Archie Zolotuhin on bass.

The video footage of Mini Band’s performance was taken at the Bucklebury Beer Festival in the UK and posted on YouTube, where it quickly became an internet sensation.

According to the BBC, David Emmonds, father of drummer Charlie, 10, said: “People are totally thrown at the quality they kick out.

“I think it’s because they are so small – it’s really odd to watch.”

The children have been playing instruments from as young as five and are students at a rock music school.

Mr Emmonds said his son was “absolutely mad” on playing the drums.

“We’re all really proud. Who knows how far they can go? They can go all the way if they go on at the pace they’re going.

“They’ve certainly got talent between them.”

The Mini Band have performed gigs at local schools and music festivals, and their usual set also includes Knights Of Cydonia by Muse, Fly Away by Lenny Kravitz, The Middle by Jimmy Eat World and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Dani California.
