WATCH: Brandon “Taz” Niederauer’s national anthem performance

It’s not everyday that you get invited to play the national anthem at the one of the biggest stages in the National Football League – but thats exactly what happened to MONO artist, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer during the AFC Championship Game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills at Arrowhead.

Still only 17 years young, Niederauer gained prominence starring in the Broadway musical adaptation of the “School of Rock” and has gone on to appear on multiple television shows including The Ellen Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and Good Morning America.

Sunday’s performance wasn’t the first time Niederauer performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” in front of a live audience. Back in October 2019, Taz also had the honor of performing the national anthem before the Chiefs’ game against the Green Bay Packers.

In his encore performance back in Arrowhead, Niederauer channels his inner Jimi Hendrix for an impressive display of guitar mastery. With the splendor and pizzazz of the legendary rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” back at Woodstock 1969, we think that the future of guitar is safe and secure with the next generation.
