A video made by a group of young West Berkshire rockers has been watched by about 14,000 people on YouTube

A GROUP of wannabe rock stars from West Berkshire have become internet sensations after a video of one of their songs, broadcast on YouTube, has been watched by more than 13,000 people.

Almost 14,000 have now watched a video recorded at the October half term rock school, which was held at Studio 91 at Newbury Greenham Park.

About 40 young people between the age of six and 16 attended the rock school where they wrote, learnt, recorded and recorded a video for their song, Holiday.

The video was uploaded onto YouTube just before Christmas and within a matter days, about 13,000 people had viewed it, with the figure growing on a daily basis.

Leo Westby, who runs the school said they were amazed that the young rockers managed to get the whole thing put together in under four days.

He said: "It has been a surprising success.

"It is quite an impressive result.

"It's been a surprise but fantastic."

Eight-year-old Kieran Fell, who was seven-years-old when the video was made, only started to learn how to play the guitar in February.

His mother, Elizabeth Scully, said that all the parents were impressed with what they had achieved.

She said: "It's great exposure to introduce them to that scene.

"I think most of the mums are proud."

Mr Westby said that due to the popularity and demand of the song, they were planning on releasing it as a single.
