Members of the rock band the Green Room are attracting fans, getting invited to play gigs and making hundreds of dollars at some shows — all before they're old enough to drive or even take a high school music class.

All are 12 except Alex, who is 13, but a large part of their repertoire comes from decades when even some of their parents were barely old enough to get into it. "We really like the Beatles and classic rock," said Travis, a seventh-grader at Corona del Mar Middle School.
