The band cannot continue using your son's picture because the appropriation of one's name or likeness for commercial purposes without consent constitutes invasion of privacy.
Since the band is only children, it would be advisable to sue their parents for invasion of privacy. You will need to be appointed guardian ad litem to file a lawsuit on behalf of your son because he is a minor.
