You might know Brandon “Taz” Niederauer as the teenager who does the national anthem at the Sixers’ games every so often. He looks like a young Jimi Hendrix out there.
He sells out shows up and down the east coast, but more importantly, he’s a Sixers fan, and he’s gonna be in town this weekend playing The Fillmore. Before that gig, he’ll swing over to the Wells Fargo Center for the anthem again, but it looks like he’s added another tune to his repertoire.

Best theme song ever? @sixers
SO psyched to play the national anthem and halftime at the #Sixers game on Fri before my show at The Foundry at @FillmorePhilly on Sat. @JimmyButler, @JoelEmbiid, @BenSimmons25… who’s up for some 1 on 1?? 🏀#76ers #TrustTheProcess #HereTheyCome pic.twitter.com/EkCELIqpWA

He’s ahead of me in the guitar department; that’s for sure. I didn’t start playing until I was 17 and it took me like three months to learn “Louie Louie.” I didn’t learn the Zakk Wylde riffs and pinch harmonics until college.
