Sixteen Years Old And A Veteran Of The Cotton Club

Solomon Hicks

At 16 years-old, Solomon Hicks is already a veteran of Harlem's famed Cotton Club. Since age 13, this musical prodigy has been the lead guitarist with the "Cotton Club All Stars."

Solomon excels in Jazz, Blues, Classical, Gospel, R&B, Funk and classic Rock. In the 10 years he's been playing music, Solomon has put together an impressive resume.

In our Clip of the Week, Solomon Hicks explains how hard work and practice helped him win over skeptics who didn't think a youngster like him could hang with more experienced musicians.
