Young Bristol Musicians Mini Attack Busk On Streets To Save Money For University

A talented trio are making a name for themselves by busking on Bristol's streets to earn money for university - all at the tender age of 11.

Twins Raul and Jacob Gibson, along with friend Mollie Hardwick, make up Mini Attack, the band taking their hometown, and YouTube, by storm.

The band have already jammed with Ed Sheeran and recorded and released their first song Gotta Rock Like This.

In one of Mini Attack's videos, which features them playing Summertime on the street, the band is approached by a Glastonbury scout, who asks them to send a CD to the festival's organisers.

Father of Jacob and Raul, Nick Gibson, told Bristol paper the Western Daily Press: "The kids are well aware of how expensive university is going to be and they know if they carry on doing what they are doing it's going to make the whole thing easier.

"They have had such an incredible response out on the street, drawing flash crowds in the city centre who really take to them.

"They totally love to perform and have made the possibility of actually busking to save up for university fees a realistic one."
