Washington's A-list parents send their children to some of the nation's most prestigious – and expensive schools. And it's probably a good bet they're not expecting them to form a boy band.

But that's just what departing White House Press Secretary Jay Carney's son Hugo and three his of buddies have done, reports the New York Daily News.

And, reports the News, the kids are alright.

Hugo Carney, 12, and his pals have many years ahead to figure out their path but for now, the boys seem to be having fun in "Twenty20." The other three guys are: HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan’s son Lucas; Joey Doyle, whose mom is Obama campaign Patti Solis Doyle, who also ran Hillary Clinton's 2012 White House campaign; and U.S. Trade Rep. Mike Froman's son Ben.

They recently posted a pop ditty called "Heart Thief" on YouTube. As of late Friday, it had received more than 3,600 views.

Story continues below video.

The News says this about it: "The smartly produced short for the song captures an epic kid adventure around the nation's capital and shows the quartet rock 'n' roll across the district — hanging out at Union Station, filling up on sugar at 7-Eleven, frolicking on their skateboards, and even taking a ride on Capital bikes."

The boys are students at Washington's Sidwell Friends, where tuition and fees this fall will be more than $36,000.

Their classmates include President Barack Obama's daughters, Sasha and Malia.

Hugo's Yale-educated dad is leaving his post, the president said Friday. Jay Carney was mum on what's next.

Carney was described as "stressed and burnt out" as far back as March 2013, after a series of snippy replies to reporters.

"It seems if any reporter questions this White House … they are attacked publicly and directly," Mediaite's Joe Concha wrote.

This past March, The Daily Caller reported the speculation was back, and Concha wrote Carney was CNN-bound. Carney at the time denied a report he was lobbying to become ambassador to Russia.
