Frank Solano

Frank Solano was never classically trained in music, nor did he ever play any kind of instrument growing up.  What he did have was a boom box and an older sister who was heavy into this new sound that was taking the city by storm.  The sound was House music and the time and place was Chicago during the late 80’s.  Frank was introduced early on when he would record the WBMX weekend mixes for his big sis.  He would tune in diligently every Friday and Saturday night, and record cassette tapes of the legendary Hot Mix 5 DJ sets.  These tapes were the catalyst to what would be a two decade fascination with Chicago House music.
