Let's be honest here: At six years old, I was doing well to tie my own shoes and speak in full sentences. Looking back now, I can't even begin to imagine sitting in with a band full of grown men and not just holding my own, but being the focal point. Such is the lot of Aiden, a six-year-old wunderkind, who, as you'll see from the video after the jump, can blow on the harmonica like no other. At his age, I couldn't even play the recorder in a way that wasn't grossly offensive. Even more impressive, word has it that young Aiden, whose father, Erik Boa, plays guitar in the Delta Sonics, has been playing since he was four and hasn't had a single lesson. Aiden. Remember that name. Something tells me this kid's going to be making a giant mark on the scene in the years to come. In the meantime, you can catch him with the Delta Sonics tomorrow night at Pappadeaux North (9145 Sheridan Blvd).
